I've got one line at 450/month. I never go over the limit, even with mobile-to-mobile; and never go over 1gb in data usage. Texting goes up and down, depending on what is going on at work, but never over 100 per month.
69.99 – 450 unlimited.
Asurion - $7 to Asurion,
Taxes/surcharges - $10.42
Current bill - $76.99 (no taxes/surcharges) $87.41 (including the taxes/surcharges)
Plus the $10 fee with the new smart phone.
Total bill would be 90 without insurance. The surcharges might increase a little, since most of them are based on a percentage of the bill.
Data - $29.99
Asurion - $7 ( assuming it’s the same)
Current bill would be $81.98 (no taxes/surcharges), if Verizon makes no changes.
Going over to Verizon wouldn't cost me much. I've been with Sprint long enough to qualify for the gold discount on the handset, so that would be some savings, at least during the first year. Whether I go over to Verizon will depend on what Verizon does with tiers. When they go to tiers (and they will), there are a couple of ways they could go - caps on data, or throttling down on speed. And I'm betting they can do what Comcast did and throttle down on speed without mentioning it, and waiting to see if anyone notices. If I'm paying for data, I may not use much but what is used is important and I want to use it effectively, not at a reduced speed. So as much as I want the Pre3, I may wait and see what Verizon does with its data plans.
My Pre-minus has been snug in its little case and is in pristine condition. I could hold out for Sprint, if there is info indicating they are getting another WebOs phone. I love WebOs and will probaly reluctantly switch carriers if I have to.
