Re: Slight confusion - additional info
In some markets in the USA the OT-960C is sold as both the Authority and the Ultra. In some markets in the USA and in ROW the OT-995 is the Ultra.

People should be aware that the Authority and the Ultra are not identical. The Authority is a CDMA phone (from Criket) that uses Dragontrail Glass, and does not have an hdmi port. The Ultra (OT-995S) is a GSM/UMTS phone supporting the T-mobile bands (should also work with AT&T to some degree) and offered in the by Simple Mobile's phone partner Quality One Wireless of Orlando Florida. The differnce to note is CDMA verses GSM.
Verizon wireless and forced data charges
This is similar to the phungial thread but I am still unclear. I have a Verizon phone that I mistakenly ran over. I have no data plan or contract. A friend can give me either a Palm Pixi Plus or a Droid Incredible. I don't need to be connected to the web outside my house. If I transfer my number to one of these phones will Verizon automatically charge me for a data plan? Thanks!
