Not a fanboi... just haven't had any complaints with Verizon in 15 years of service... other than losing my unlimited data. Once I realized I had never used 2GB of data in any month it wasn't a huge deal.

I am not on any of their share plans... I'm grandfathered in to the older plans which is a good thing because the share everything plan is totally worthless to me... I'm single with no kids or wives that need cell phones.

My setup?

Nationwide Talk Text 450

450 anytime minutes (I use about 150 per month on average)
Unlimited Text
2GB Data

$87.00 a month

I know people on TMobile that are paying more for less. I have nothing to complain about.

I don't work for Sprint and I don't have access to her account. She was most probably using too much date while roaming.
nope we wasnt roaming as sprint has service in los angeles and the phone said sprint on the screen as that tells me whos network it's on

Some carriers will mask their profile when you are roaming. Customer service can verify if any roaming did occur.

The same issue came up a few years ago with At&t. When roaming off network, customers would only see "At&t" on the network indicator. I suspect it could be the same with Verizon in this case.

Att will shut your phone off if you even make voice calls. If you have the 450 min plan then they will cut you off at 225 or if you have the unlimited plan then its 750 mins of off network roaming before they shut you off ask someone that knows from personal exp and there off network roaming dept wont turn your phone on. Im glad I dumped them idiots more dropped calls in more places
