Am I to understand that when you enable Wireless Web with Pay As You Go, you get charged the 50cents/day every day, whether or not you even use the phone?
If so, what's to stop you from enabling it and disabling it as needed? Could you do that several times a day?
I'm happy with 50/cents a day for the two or three days a month when I might actually use it. But paying for it when it's not used defeats the purpose of a PAYG plan.
The reason for turning it off immediately is that any such usage would be unplanned on my part. I'm pretty brain dead around bed time, so trusting myself to turn it off at the end of the day is asking for a week's worth of unwanted billing.
Which brings up another dumb question - is the absence of both a current balance display on the phone and the ability to get the balance by text message a property of Boost or a property of the Sprint network? Even using the phone's web app to check the balance through the home page says to call (not msg) #225.
I know I can call, but then I'd need something to write it down. I don't process audio information as well as written. I wonder how they justify that limitation for deaf users (Yes, deaf people will use cell phones for text messaging.)
