My cell phone contract is up in a couple of weeks so I've started looking at new phones. Umm..why do 99% of these phones require an 30 dollar data plan on top of the regular plan?? Verizon is the only company that works where I live so I'm limited to phones they use.
I don't have a life. I don't see any reason to surf the web or check my email via my phone. That's what a computer is for..or my iPad. I don't even text. My current plan is 40 bucks with a basic Nokia phone. I get 400 minutes; most of which I don't use. When I checked out similar phones to mine, they are cheaply made and not worth it..even if it is free. The thought of spending 70 bucks a month ( regular plan + data plan) just for one phone makes me want to puke. For less than that I get DSL internet and unlimited long distance on my land line.
The Trac phones do not work in my area as I tried that once.
So ladies..what do you suggest? What BS should I ignore when dealing with the store? The one time I went in it was like a shark frenzy with sales people. I got my charger, paid and tried to slip out before I got jumped the last time I went in.
