anyone with a spear invite?
I didn't receive any email this weekend about joining. I'm guessing they are either behind schedule or found out a crap load of people aren't interested with their current old as heck phone.
OTOH, I"ll bet there are still a ton of people interested in the service, even with the old-as-heck phone.
I'm on the Pageplus $12 plan.
The RW CUI has me concerned.
When I'm at home,(and connected to wifi) I wouldn't want to do any web based activities on my phone.
When I'm away form home,(connected to cell data) I don't really have time to use my phone much (Maybe during bathroom breaks), but I'd be using data still.
Plus, the Optimus V is not what I want to pay $200 for.
Plus, I don't like the idea of spending $200, just so I can spend an extra $7 per month on a limited service.
Hopefully the delay in the invite email means they are working on some nice new phone offerings. But these days there are not so many phones available which are non 4G offerings on cdma. Personally I would not mind a mere 3G phone so long as it also had an unlocked gsm wireless for use overseas. But as I say by using only Sprint, Republic is restricted in what phones they can offer.
What $30 4g Tmo plan? I can't find such a beast.
27% higher than what they're quoting--that's a chunk. I may very well pass on this.
Plan B would be to buy an unlocked Android phone and stick a T-mo sim card in.
I believe he's referring to the Tmo Prepaid plans. $30 gets you 100 voice minutes, unlimited texts and 5G data or 1500 minutes/texts and 30M data.
My Verizon bill looks like this for 3 lines at the lowest price plan available (that I can find):
Nationwide tlk and txt share 700 - $80
Each line is 9.99 plus taxes and fees = $15.66. (That almost 57% for fees and taxes).
x3 = $126.98/month.
Heck yes I'm interested in RW at 19 plus taxes. RW will still save me about $50/month and add data.
That may be a reality for YOU.
I have my wife doing voice only on PagePlus, because she uses the thing so little. I'd *like* to move her off the Fred Flintstone phone onto something modern with data, and RW is the most likely candidate here--but $25 is significantly different from $19, and that's why I'm curious. What else is out there in that same general price range?
$126--that's what her father's house payment was not too terribly long ago. Not everybody is coming from the insanity of $150 cell phone bills on top of $175 cable/satellite bills. Uh-uh.
Note that my bill does not include ANY data either. This is the minimum bill I can get from VZW since we don't have any affiliations that permit a corporate discount.
My point was that the advertised price of $19 (or whatever) will always be exclusive of taxes and fees.
So yes, that's my reality. And I would like to change it if I have a reasonable option. The other two lines use very little cell minutes. We could get by with much less minutes, but that is the least talk time VZW offers on a shared/family account.
While I like VZW's coverage and service, I'm increasingly uncomfortable paying for it.
I'm certainly open to other options. And I understand your point about $19 vs $24, but it's all relative when taxes and fees are imposed on everyone. I suppose the pay as you go has its benefits too. But does it escape those same taxes and fees?
That bill sure looks like you could just put all 3 on the $12 PP plan, but I understand the challenges of varying useage. My son needs a texting plan, so I needed to put him on the power text 2000, but add a few picture messages (data) and calls and its more like $15-20 a month, not quite enough to justify moving up, while the rest of use can stick with the standard plan. But , I'm paying for internet at home, so RW looks very interesting as an option for at least my teenagers. Add to it that I might be able to drop by landline if I can actually get service at the house because of the wifi using my internet. I'm behind a hill and there's barely enough signal to text, but no voice.
