Stop regulating cell phone company and screwing your customers

As we all know Verizon is the best phone service in America. They cover the most people with 4G and 3G. They have the most reliable service of all major us carriers. Verizon always wins award after award for having the best service, but that comes at a price. Verizon is one of the most pricy services in America. So if you want the best you have to pay for it.

Now it is not all good when it comes to Verizon. They seem to know what is best for the customer and do as they please without letting us tell them what is best. Verizon has contracts with Motorola and tells them what they want on there phone even those Motorola does not want what Verizon wants. Moto really wants a pure android base phone to let the customer choose what they want on the phone, yet Verizon does not want that. On top of that Verizon customers finally got welcomed by getting a Nexus phone after sooooo many years of waiting for one. People were so excited like my self to finally get a pure android phone. All this excitement was great but verizon has to screw it all up. After the Nexus was announced it took over two month for the phone to be released. Yet other countries had the phone a couple days to a week after the phone was publicly announced. Finally we got the phone released and things looked like it would be turning around. Well Verizon then took matters into there own hands again. Google announced Jelly bean (a new operation system) and showed it off on there Nexus device. After the announcement people all over the world got Jelly bean a day to a week later. Verizon customers were not so lucky. It took us up to 4 month to get the update that has been out for a while.

See Verizon has to approve everything that happens with there with there cellphone business. If an update is coming out for a phone Verizon has to approve it. When a phone is ready to be released to the public. Verizon has to approve it like they do with the updates. Now the new Nexus called the Nexus 4 will not be on Verizon or on 4G LTE. Google said they can not control the phone/updates that go to the phones on a 4G LTE network. They are trying to hide the truth that we all know. Verizon made it nearly impossible for Google to release the phone and updates. Verizon does the same thing with Motorola and wanting them to have there cellphones a certain way.

So I am here to say no more. We are fed up with the way Verizon runs the show. They make all the decision that do not need to be made. They decided when a phone should be released even if they are ready to be sold. They decided when an update is ready to be released even those it is ready. Verizon decided what phone features are on a Motorola phone. Verizon wants all the power and controls which in return hurts the customer. So lets tell Verizon NO MORE!! Take a stand with me to show them we are unhappy at the way they run the show!!!!

      We pay good money for phones with 2-year contracts. Only a small number of people have money to pay full price for the latest phone when it comes out. Phones should be able to get the latest Android software as soon (or very soon after) it becomes available. If an everyday developer can make it happen, so can Verizon.
