    What a load of crap.

    Data Plan

    Daughter has the Envy 3
    2 Options on the Verizon Website
    1st Plan is $9.99 for 25MB and $19.99 for 75 MB
    The phone has to have a Data Plan there is no opt out option online any longer for this phone nor any of the smart phones as far as i can tell.

    I admit I don't have the needs, or the extra people, but even with the data plan, I'm paying $16 a month less than with my Voyager.

    Its simple. Choose a phone that does not use data, keep using the env2 or pony up the extra cash. I don't agree with it but it is what it is. They'll charge whatever the market bears.

    Like I said, its a kick in the nads.

    There are three stages of phones at Verizon:
    - Standard Feature phones - these don't require a data plan
    - "3G" Enhanced Devices (env3, env Touch, etc) - require at least $10 data
    - Smartphones (droid, tp2, etc) - require at least $30 data

    If you don't want to pay the extra data, get one of the cheaper phones that you can still text on, but they don't require a data package. That is what my mom did. . .

    Yep, I'm in the same boat...My wife is currently on an old Palm Centro and uses text only, no data what-so-ever. She's eligible for NE2 next month and theoretically, to get her a new phone with the EXACT same capabilities, it's going to cost me an extra $10 monthly.

    I'm thinking I might pick her up a new phone on ebay or Craigslist and forgo the whole NE2 deal altogether. I'll wait and see if they can give me a reasonable explanation of why I need to pay an extre $10/mo when I'm at the VZW store before I decide.

    And that is exactly my problem with Verizon. I don't mind paying for stuff I use, i.e. 30 plan for the Droid. But these "multimedia" phones are really not good with using the Internet. My son has the Samsung Rogue and hardly uses it all all. His entire monthly downloads were about 1 MB. Granted, he does have the iPod Touch and connectivity almost everywhere he goes.
