I love Verizon Wireless. I have never had any problems with call/sound quality for 9 years now. I switched to Sprint for about 7 months in 2013, but I'm not going to talk about that. I don't foresee myself without a Verizon Wireless phone again. My perspective is that Verizon Wireless should provide me stable and decently fast cell-phone/4GLTE coverage. I will take a consistently stable and semi-fast network over a super-fast but only in some areas network. I understand why I have to pay more for being with VZW compared to the other cell phone providers, and I am more than willing to pay this premium for a quality network.
I think Verizon Wireless is great. I am probably going to invest in them soon. I just want to be able to uninstall VZW apps on my phone.
