Anyone know who currently has the best price on this? Thinking of getting it for my kids. VZ site has it for $109.
Leave it to Vz to castrate Opera mini.
1xrtt data, crippled proprietary Verizon version of Opera and difficulty doing what would be simple tasks on more open standard feature phones . Verizon prepaid's first $50 unlimited plan touchscreen has a price (besides the $89 they were charging at the local Best Buy.)
I'm sure it will be a sales hit just because it is a touchscreen and the $50 unleashed plan though...
Page Plus is counterattacking with a cut in their Unlimited talk/text/20 megs data down to 39.95 , the original price. Near unlimited cdma byod make it a good alternate for low/no data users on feature phones. Their $55 unlimited talk/text/500 meg plan is better for smartphones.
I was in BestBuy tonight and I saw a Motorola Citrus in an Unleashed package it was $149.00. I was in a hurry buying stuff so I didn't get a chance to ask about it but I'm headed back tomorrow a little earlier.
Are you sure? If so, this would be a coup. Androids (even lowend ones) on unlimited everything Verizon $50 plan. Real or wishful thinking? Inquiring minds want to know...
You're probably right I was in a real hurry.
I didn't make it there today but I'll head there after work tomorrow.
I did not ask a sales clerk if the Citrus was on the 50 Unleashed plan. Given that the two Citrus had regular Verizon prepaid rate information on the inside cover and no mention of the 50 dollar plan, I assumed it was a no go. It would be great if Verizon did allow low end smart phones on this plan. However, I do not think it will happen in my lifetime.
I am on America's Largest and Most Reliable Wireless Network..
Thank you Page Plus.
Verizon prepaid and Androids at $50 unlimited? Nah. Even though the Citrus is a jr. droid w / the lesser evdo 0 standard, it's still probably meant for the more expensive smartphone monthly plans. I await OTG's confirm though.
We still have Page Plus as a strong alternate even w/o unlimited data.
That would be a giant prepaid service development for Big Red.
