    Verizon doing away with unlimited data. Thoughts?

    Now this is not really "news" and we all knew that they had a soft cap of 5 GB but it still changes the environment for people wanting to upgrade phones and alter plans on big red down the line. How do you feel about Verizon possibly having a pricing scheme similar to AT&T? Save money or...

    My friend thinks 4G is not that big a deal...

    He stated that there is not one app that could use it and questioned me to show him one app thats held back by using 3G data. I'm inclined to think he's just telling himself this as an Apple fanboy because the iPhone 5 isnt coming out this summer and falling behind with 4G standard. Is he...
