Just like Cablevision.
huh? true or not true? they have a contract. period. they did away with it and now they bought it back. a contract's a contract. if you want the deal they are offering, you are forced into a 2 year contract. they wont give you the deal unless you sign up for it.

Since you're being extremely anal about it.

Yes, they do have a completely optional contract that you may or may not want to opt-in for.

Yes, if you want the deal, you have to abide by the conditions.

JUST like Cablevision.

It's not a bad thing. It's a logical thing. It makes sense that both companies would do it.



More importantly, how's about answering my honest and direct question about your latest ID and the need to keep creating them in a misguided attempt to appear like you have support?

He opted not to read that part because it took away the validity of his point.

Nevermind the fact that I, as well as many other people, have gotten the good deals from Verizon without signing any contract.

Are you sure?

I don't get why Cablevision (of all things) would be so important to someone to create multiple identities.

But I've been wrong before ...

Cablevision was molesting my cat, but fortunately Verizon came and rescued him, fluffed his fur and gave him some milk in a golden dish. They're no utility, they are the Ghandi of corporations.

Too bad they keep quoting me MORE than CV or I'd switch. I've had them all. 6 of one, half a dozen of the other. Except Dish which I had to shovel out (on a slippery roof) after a storm. That was a future deal breaker.

I recall Matzoh Pizza and Peqa....something?

I'm sure I'm missing a couple.
