Using my Droid with the $29 plan and connected to my corporate exchange server.
The reason we want this???
I dont understand the people saying "Why would you buy a smartphone if you dont want the data" Answer - A hell of a lot more reasons than I would buy one for the data.
Wifi is everywhere. Especially in bed or at a bar like BW3s. The two places I'd most likely use the phones internet.
But Its not about the Internet!
1st - New Smartphones are great MP3 players. Its a lot easier to have one device always with you than to lug 2 everywhere. My last 2 mp3 players were stolen. I've never lost a phone.
2nd - New smartphones have the best phone cameras. Yet another device I dont need.
3rd - New smartphones have the best text messaging features - scroll screen conversation mode. Something I use a lot.
4th - New smartphones would make for great GPS units when necessary. But I'm not used to paying $30 a month to receive a free GPS signal.
Instead of Verizon and Att mandating Data plans, why not just auto-shut down the phones 3G data when its not paid for? Oh, yeah. Not effective at getting money.
Your accessing email through the web. Any company with an Exchange Server should have remote web access for email set up. Which you can easily access through a web page with the $29 plan.
Exchange authenticates people to a company's entire network. So they could go to sites, be recognized, view content related to them, access restricted areas.
Answer: If you just need email, and your company has remote web access, you're fine with the $29 plan. If you need access to the company internal websites and applications, you need the $44 plan.
In the documentary we watched, it never mentioned the risks of incidents that could be caused. Thanks for the info.
I don't see how everyone isnt in agreement when it comes to having a smartphone with no data. WiFi is everywhere!!
On a typical day I am without wireless internet for about 40 minutes, no need to pay 30 a month for that.
I would much rather spend 200-300 bucks for the phone and pay 20 a month for service.
There are so many apps and features that the phone has that are possible without internet that I would love to use.
I want to get the droid and a prepaid sim card, and just use my google voice number and be just dandy.
