    You posted to multiple newsgroups, are you trying to start a rumor or hoping
    the Carriers will see this take it as a suggestion?

    It would be nice if Verizon does the 7pm nights. Rumor or not, it still
    would be ok with me, but, not like it's going to happen.

    It would be nice for US and not them.

    The other smaller carriers are doing it to be more competitive with
    Verizon/Cingular. They are hoping to make up for the inconvenience of less
    coverage area.
    There is still rush hour traffic after 7 pm. Carriers don't make much money
    from nights and weekends, they make most of their money from business users.
    These same business users who commute home after work.

    I don't think they are really thinking about doing this.

    My .02 anyway ;-)

    The western region was 8 pm until sometime in 2002. I can't change plans
    now, or I lose 8 pm.

    Verizon is very sly when they increase prices. It's usually by taking away
    something that will cause more extra charges, rather than simply raising the
    base price.

    When I signed up for Cingular late last year, they had a 7/7 deal going.
    For $7 per month per line, your 5000 N/W minutes start at 7PM Monday through
    Friday. So unless they've nixed that deal very recently, 7PM nights are
    more than just a rumor. I think it's worth the extra $7 per month, as most
    of our calls are made between 7PM and ~ 8:30-ish.

    Now if Cingular was going to offer 7PM for FREE, that would be nice. But I
    haven't heard anything about that. Just thought I'd post that you can have
    7PM on cingular if you want it. -Dave

    You're being magnanimous when you use the term "sly."

    I remember back in the day 1994 my first provider, Cellular One. They
    had 7a to 7p was peak and 7p to 7a was non peak...I loved the hours but
    if they had unlimited N/WKD like we do now .... :-)

    Which is all fine and dandy, but the OP specified Verizon (which begs the
    question of why he crossposted to the Cingular and Nextel groups).

    Actually, he tailored his message to the appropriate carrier in each

    I didn't see it different, and since we are replying to the original one,
    how did multiple NG's get in the newsgroup list?

    I've heard rumors from sales people that some time in March AT+T
    was going to change the night and weekend minutes to 7PM.
    Is that fact or fiction?

    I've heard rumors from sales people that some time in March Nextel
    was going to change the night and weekend minutes to 7PM.
    Is that fact or fiction?

    As you can see, he trolled all of the groups, adjusting the message for the
    appropriate carrier.This is simply the one thread that lives on.

    Ah, you are right. Went back to google to see the original post/thread
    (www.google.com), and someone replied to a previous message, but added the
    extra groups to the reply...Guess that's what got the three groups started.
