    Big red strikes again

    If any of this is wrong, and I hope it is, please let me know.

    I just got off the phone with Verizon and the said that if you want to go month to month on the 3g everytime you start the service you have to pay a 35 dollar activation fee. I was really hoping they would rum that like AT&T does. This Guy did mention something about suspending service when you don't want it but I'm not sure how all that works.

    Has anybody heard anything different?

    I'm not exactly sure what you're asking here. If you want to suspend service, when I worked at VZW, you could vacation suspend a line 2 times a year, up to 90 days each time. You could suspend with or without billing. If you suspended without billing, the time on vacation suspend would not be charged, however you would extend your contract out by that amount of time. If you suspend with billing, your contract end date remains the same. Is this what you're asking about?

    Well, iPad 2 is going to be announced tomorrow. You can get that wifi only. Then you don't pay any data plan. You might want to see what they are offering.

    It's ridiculous why they haven't made the Xoom available data free.

    I want to be able to start and stop they data plan at will like with the ipad on att. the vz Rep said if I did that I would have to pay an activation fee every time. I think that sucks.

    Btw @hookbill no data plan is required you can use the xoom wifi only. Also I was a big fan of your omnia work.

    You are now chatting with 'Dale'
    You: hello
    Dale: Hello. Thank you for visiting our chat service. May I help you with your order today?
    You: i was wondering if i did the month to month do i have to pay for activation everytime
    Dale: What is the activation in reference to? Are you a new customer?
    You: no
    Dale: Are you adding a line to an existing account?
    You: month to month plan for xoom
    You: if i dont use 3g for a couple of months then i need it do i have to pay for activation everytime i use 3g
    Dale: What are you intending to do precisely?
    You: buy a xoom at full retail
    You: then only use 3g when i really need it
    Dale: The activation is a one time fee for the line of service.
    Dale: Hi, just checking in how's everything going?
    You: so i buy the xoom without a contract. and within a year only pay for 3 months of service
    Dale: No, you would pay for the service on a monthly basis.

    So without a contract a 799 xoom is essentially an overpriced wifi only device. Who would pay 35 each time you activate. This is terrible news if true.

    I read that to mean you pay one time to activate your device, then it's just month to month, no re-activation charges: "The activation is a one time fee for the line of service."

    Personally I'm just using mine wifi only. If my job/income changed then I might switch, though with the coming 4G I'd need an expensive data plan!

    I think att allows a one month here and there with no activation. Some months I travel and would like it but some I don't and would'nt want it. Not deal breaker for me just a bummer.

    Ok so I went to V website and they do have daily weekly and monthly. Do these require activation and can they be applied to xoom?
