    i think i might have made a mistake by signing up for the unlimited data plan with the droid i have coming. what extra do you get from the unlimited data plan that you wouldnt get from the unlimited web/email. i will be streaming music, running apps, browsing and navigating primarily with my device. do i only need the web and email plan?

    I think you're confused my friend. You have to have a data plan with the Droid and Verizon, there is no way around it. There's a sticky about that at the top of the General Discussion thread.

    They do have a plan that's not unlimited Data but I think it's only 5 bucks less and it tops out out 25 GB.

    Enter your location

    this is the feature addon on verizon.com. either email and web or unlimited data usage. what i need to know is could i just switch to email and web for $15 less and do what i wanna do without being charged extra.

    The $45 plan is usually only applied to corporate accounts. For the Droid, it has no impact. The only impact the difference in plans is when it comes to Blackberries, as the $45 plan supports Blackberry Exchange Server for enterprise users, while the $30 plan does not.

    since we are on this topic. I signed up for the 45 buck data plan but want to switch to the 30 buck data plan. Is this something I can do online through the verizon website or do I have to call to change? I can't find a location in "my verizon" to change data plans
