cry me a river... sorry but data is the future of the wireless industry... it's 10 bucks a month... what are you going to do in the near future when every company has the same necessary data as Verizon

There is no forced data on dumb-phones for any other carrier, so what will you do if pigs start to fly is irrelevant. It's not just ten dollars, it's ten dollars X 2 or X3 etc for many many families, but obviously you're out of touch of what really is going on.

What about if you dont want unlimited texting or data...maybe just a basic text package?

These companies need to just raise the price of the device, instead of the monthly fee. Stop slashing prices and doing all of these bogos and get customers used to paying a little more for higher end phones.

This is an awesome phone! I'm very disappointed that Verizon is screwing its customers for 3G data plan when this phone does not need 3G. Too bad I would have loved to buy this phone but I'm no SUCKER!!!!!

I understand 3G is the way technology is going but this phone does not even have html browser so why use 3G for it and not EVDO??????

Shame on you Verizon!!!!!!!

EVDO is Verizon's 3G.
And this device does have HTML browser, just like the Env3 and EnvTouch, which is a why it requires a data plan.

Smh..

Ok first of all it's $10 for mobile email and 25mb of data OR $5 for unlimited push-to-talk.

Secondly it is not an everybody type of phone. It's demographic is construction/outdoors/rough user type. Full HTML browser, GPS, Work tracking n time card remote management. Document viewer i.e exel, word, pdfs etc. Shock, dust and water resistent. Camera, Video capture. Streaming video.


I mean c'mon.

Did I seriously see some goofball comparing this to an iphone? Surprised
There is a market for phones that can be thrown against walls, dropped from cliffs, and dunked in swimming pools.

Great phone for that type of person.

Question - if one can buy the phone off ebay etc - can it be used on a verizon network without the $9.99/month?

It doesn't matter where you get the phone, Verizon requires the data plan when you activate the phone.

It has nothing to do with subsidizing the cost of the phone. Most carriers are demanding some sort of data plan on any phone that has data access capability because they quickly got tired of eating the bill when some nitwit runs up a $10k phone bill at the ridiculous pay as you go rates. The carriers want customers on a data plan so the carrier gets the revenue stream to support their high speed data network.

Data pricing WILL come down -- just like the cost of texting already did come down -- but it is going to be another year or two before data prices become rational for families.
