    Hey guys,
    I plan on giving my Droid to my girlfriend, is there any data plan lower than the $30 unlimited one? She won't be using that much data and I don't see any other smartphone data plan on Verizon's site.

    Thanks

    the only other one is a $15/mo data plan for I think $15/mo for the half-smart/half-dumb phones which have web access but not a smartphone OS. However, if memory serves me correctly, the Droid requires a $30/mo plan, so I think she'll be stuck with that.

    If memory serves, they require you have the $30/mo data plan with most smartphones these days. Most likely because they figure if you're using a smartphone, you're using it for web, Facebook, streaming music, watching Youtube, downloading apps, and all kinds of stuff that uses up data.
    Sorry man, I think she's stuck with the unlimited plan.

    Well that's not good. I usually use less than a GB unless I'm tether.

    The Verizon site lets me choose the 150mb plan even though I have the Droid 1. The problem is, with the phone idling with facebook and other things, I can use 400MB in a month. I wouldn't recommend it for anything smartphone based unless you keep it on wifi all the time.

    Same here, unless I stream internet radio (slacker) I'm way under a GB. Just the cost of having a state of the art mobile device.
