I spoke to a Verizon rep today about the security of the Verizon network vs. Wifi. He led me to believe that data transferred over the Verizon nework was secure, however, for Wifi you are not protected. For me this is very important since I would be doing banking , etc. online and need to be secure. Does anyone know if this is true? If it is, than this would certainly make it worth the money to be on the Verizon data plan.
