If I buy the Verizon version I am paying 599 plus tax upfront and then 20 dollars a month for 1GB of data for 24 months, which comes to 480 dollars plus tax. For a total of 1079 dollars after two years plus tax.....
If I buy it from Best Buy for 799 plus tax and cancel the activation, I basically have a wifi version....right?
For a difference of roughly 280 dollars.....
But wait if I go on vacation and want to activate the Xoom on Verizon's network can I do so and cancel after the vacation and if so what are the costs......Is there an activation charge everytime I actrivate the Xoom or just once?
Please help me understand what makes the most sense. I spoke with a verizon rep this morning and she said I could disable the 3g/4g network when I am on a wifi and only use the Verizon service. But then I am paying for a data plan I probably will not use except on rare instances.
And then I also know that I have a rooted phone and could just tether when I am off of wifi, but am not sure how dependable that is because I have not really used it yet.
