    OK, I'm new to this forum and here's my situation.

    I'll be taking a trip soon and I want to be able to keep in touch via email. In as much, I'm considering upgrading to the Centro. I only need this feature 4-5times/year.

    I realize that to in order to get this feature, it will cost me some amount of money/month. Hence, can this feature be turned on or off via my provider (Verizon) at will? Or, is this unreasonable?

    Depends on a few things. I presume that you currently have an internet provider for home use, and that this service has a pop3 access. If so, then you need a pop3 capable utility. I user chatteremail, but there are others. I believe you can install versamail personal edition free.

    If you don't have a data plan, you are loosing out on many of the great features of the Centro. Verizon now has a data plan for $30/mo, which is a pretty good deal.

    It should be possible to get a limited data plan through Verizon. I think they are around $20/month. You really don't want a pay as you go plan (if you can even get one) as don't want to run up unwanted data charges. You can also get a data block on your phone from Verizon, but it's not something you can turn on and off.

    As long as you have a data plan you can use Versamail (free version) to access your POP email account as bbtdk says. It works fine. I don't sync it. I leave email on my server so I always get stuff to my computer, but if I'm on the road and want to check the mail, I can do so easily.

    Or you can use Yahoo mail, Hotmail, or other web-based email sites.
