    You're thinking too small here. The issue is corporate consistency and being
    able to believe what VZW tells you.

    I (and other posters) heard that message, then they withdrew it and reversed
    what the message said. If a person- or company- is to have any credibility,
    you say what you're going to do-- then do it....not reverse your policy and
    pull the rug out from people, especially without notifying them.

    I don't really care which way they go- peak or off peak-- but I have to know
    the rules so I can act accordingly.

    It's a trust and reliability issue.

    You're thinking too small here. The issue is corporate consistency and being
    able to believe what VZW tells you.

    I (and other posters) heard that message, then they withdrew it and reversed
    what the message said. If a person- or company- is to have any credibility,
    you say what you're going to do-- then do it....not reverse your policy and
    pull the rug out from people, especially without notifying them.

    I don't really care which way they go- peak or off peak-- but I have to know
    the rules so I can act accordingly.

    It's a trust and reliability issue.
