100 mins phone, unlimited web and text:
Our VZW signal is pretty good at the house. We also have wifi most places we frequent. Of course enroute the cell portion would be priimary.
I saw that about the PP $12 and think it could be attractive. I am the heaviest cell phone talker. My daughter is the heaviest texter. My wife does a few of each, but not much.
VZW would be good if it weren't for that $80 charge.
Edit: btw, I never have figured out how to determine exactly how many minutes I use. Looking at that bill, I can't tell if some of the minutes are grouped in other categories or if they are all standalone. Since we have a lot of family on VZW, the free M2M minutes can be an important feature.
I'd keep in mind each state does vary quite a bit with "Taxes/Fees", for those prepaid carriers who include it can be up to 18%-19%.

Got my invite last night. I am in Wave I.
503ducati - according to that charge, IL should be about 21%, and RW is charging me 27%. Suggests my feeling that I am being overcharged is correct. I don't think RW knows what the heck they are doing.
So, I'm still wondering if this is for me.
We already have 2 iPod Touch's in the house for music and can access the web on those, and gee, if you're home use the computer. I already have that for work too. Just when are where are people using all of this data during the day that we seem to be concerned about. I find that little screen is very limiting, so I use my phone as a phone and that's about it.
Same here for me as well. But still to have phone, texting, and data for $19/month sure beats the competition. I sometimes have to hold my phone just right in my home office to get a decent cell signal. That should no longer be a problem once I'm on RW's service. But I'm sure I'll find some other issues with RW that I don't have with VZW.
Just got in Wave E
Mid level phone is what I picked as most likely, but would do Mid or High end
yeah, I wouldn't do the low end phone, regardless. The lowest end of any product line is always designed specifically for the guy who looks at price and *nothing* more. Usually the bang for the buck is one step up, maybe two if there are a lot of steps to the top.
Why is storage so limited on these phones.
Don't they allow micro SD cards for additional storage?
