    Well guys I ported my number to Verizon today. I now have a Samsung a670 and am on a America's Choice plan with the $5 unlimited in messaging add on. I have nothing against Cingular but they was just becoming too expensive. Verizon has better coverage in my area and they are cheaper than Cingular so I decided to switch. I've been testing it out a little and so far so good. I'll let you guys know what I think about Verizon when I use them a little more.

    Yup, agree 100% (cept Cingular is better in my area).

    a670 is a good phone, I just don't care for sammy UI too much

    Verizon: +2 Cingular: -2 lol

    Suncom begat Cingular begat Verizon Wireless...

    The a670 is a great phone, good reception, good camera (as far as camera phones go.) and pretty sleek design.

    I wish they would come out with that phone with a speaker phone....although I never use the speaker on mine too often...it's just nice to have when you need it. (When the babies want to talk Grandma etc.)

    That'll be the day. If I was in Larry's area, T-Mobile seems hard to beat. Cheap, 1 yr contracts, cheap good phones, etc!

    OMG!!!! Watch. Now Bobolito will be switching to Sprint or Nextel tomorrow. LOL.

    What factors led you to choose the Sammy A670? That's a pretty sleek looking phone and probably one of VZW's smallest.

    Has anyone officially crowned you as "IN" yet??

    Why would I want to switch when I have a 15% business/loyalty discount and a grandfathered data plan which includes U/L text, picturemail and video mail all for $10/mo. :D

    Cingular is expensive? Right now....at least for family plans.....Cingular is WAY cheaper than Verizon. Come June 1st (or somewhere in there) they will be exactly the same :(

    Well a friend that works for Verizon Wireless and a RadioShack employee talked me into it. They both gave rave reviews of the Samsung a670. I also liked the price, look, and features of the phone so I figured I'd try it out. So far so good, from what little testing I have done the service is working fine for me so far and I like the phone.

    I have one friend that I talk to quite often and he is proabely going to switch from Sprint to Verizon soon. I have another one that has Cingular and he is considering switching to Verizon also. So I think Mobile to Mobile and in messaging definately might come in handy for me.

    That's totally crazy, I can't believe you switched to Verizon, Dan. Good luck, I guess.

    Unlike others on the forums I don't believe in paying the $$ for a second line if I don't need it. ;)

    Verizon: 59.99 for two, then 9.99 a line

    Cingular: 79.99 for two, then 9.99 a line

    Sure, you get more minutes with Cingular, but with IN/M2M most family shareplans don't need a crapload of minutes. With me cancelling our family plan, it made sense for me to go to Verizon, cheap phone and all my friends are IN basically.

    Larry, I forgot you still get the 10$ data package and I didn't know you got a discount. When is your 18 months up?

    My 18 month period is up in January 2006. Long way to go. Don't think I can wait that long to get a new phone.

    I had a A670 last year for 3-4 months and if the Verizon service at our house and surrounding area was any good I would definitely still have it. I loved everything about it, the compact size, the built quality, the crisp display, and the gun metal grey color.

    It has one of the best voice clarity that I have had experience with and could hold on to calls better than the 6K, 7K, and the 3589i . Hope you will be enjoying too.

    Good Luck

    Another convert. Hopefully I won't be offsetting your switch with one of my own.

    There's getting to be a disproportionate number of Moderators w/ VZW....
