My only question is GPS? I'm all about saving my money, especially on a bill. I do pay for the data on my DROID. But, how would th GPS work unless you had mobile data? Just not use it? As far as I know, the DROID uses three systems for GPS: cell phone towers, wifi, and GPS Sat. If you are driving around and have to jump from hotspot to hotspot on wifi, how you gonna enter all those passwords in that quickly to keep on your route?
I assume those who dont want a data plan on the DROID, wouldn't use GPS? I'm assuming... IMO, Since VZW/Google has come out with their navs, I will never own a TomTom or Magellan*.
Sure you can look at the maps while your still, but if you wanted to NAV without a data plan, it would cost you $200-500 just to get there!
What would you do? I guess you could pre-load it, but thats a different discussion since you would lack features like traffic and such....
I'm curious to see what people say...
and P.S. - To those who say they are getting 8-25% off your VERIZON bill, that discount IS ONLY off you CALLING PLAN, not data plan or total bill!!! It's XX% off your total calling/voice charges. Check your bills and do the math! Verizon does not discount special features that are "extra". All VIP customers get 25% off accessories as far as I know.
P.S.S. - Sorry to keep draggin this thread on, lol!
[quote/]Not true... my employee discount through Hewlett Packard applies to my Voice, and Data plans. I confirmed it with a Verizon rep prior to purchasing my Droid, and confirmed it yet again when I call in to Customer Service about 2 weeks later. It depends on your particular discount through your employer, some cover extra's and some don't.[/quote]
Let me clarify, I never said employee discounts. And YES, many discounts offered ONLY apply to calling plans and no additional features. I work for Verizon as a Sales Rep. and as much as I hate to admit it, some of our Call Center Reps are not the brightest crayons in the box, so always double check info.
And also, when you read your bill, it will say, "You Saved XX% off your bill this month", this does not mean your entire bill, do your math to make sure you are getting the discount you were told. Every employer who recieves a discount through Verizon is done differently. Some are only 10% some are 50%. Some include all features, some only discount certain features, it depends on the contract your company has with Verizon...
And even though you may have confirmed this with someone, I would still do the math yourself. If it adds up, then great! Verizon discounts are badass!
