@Asaggynoodle I only pay around $10 most months. I don't usually make calls, and haven't used data in a long time. My plan isn't prepaid. It is on a sliding scale for how much I use of each service, and it is only that price because of what I use.
I think I remember seeing some decent plans from other companies if you mostly use data, but I have no real need for it (if I do need it for something I just pay a little more that month), and I don't think using data is what was meant by the question. I have been avoiding the big companies and sticking with MVNOs for the last 4 years or so.
You're both totally correct. Before we ditched Verizon we ended up having to pay a cancellation fee of ~$350 (Been with them for ~15 Years). I've been in the Comcast/Verizon (They are one Company where I live) and people have bills that are ~$450 or so. I nearly had a stroke when I did the math how much that had to cost annually. I don't even pay that much for my Car. Although Internet speeds are coming along very nicely in my area, Comcast is even offering a 2.5Gb/s package (albeit $300 a month) for residential homes. Even the WiFi at my University is around ~750Mb/s Down. Which is quite amazing, as I remember only a few years ago 10Mb/s was considered pretty high over here.after moving to and from Europe, i realize how much Americans waste on phone plans.
i go with a $3/month Tmobile plan, including 30 min or texts, and $0.10 each after that. that's still not as good as what i had in europe (i only had to top up every 6 months ).
of course, i don't use my phone heavily, and i can survive without internet when i'm out.
With the built in GPS in the 4G model and Modrana already on the repo, navigation should be pretty plug and play. I used modrana on my N900, searching for addresses is a pain in the ass, but it does work pretty wellI'm not quite sure if i'd replace my iPhone with the Pyra, although I am getting the 4G version. I think i'd be able to preserve my phone battery a lot more with the Pyra though given that I can move a few essential services like E-mail, Social Networking and perhaps pushing news of interest to it. I'd likely download a lot of youtube videos to the Pyra whilst on Wi-Fi.
I'd still rely on my phone for Navigation unless someone comes up with an excellent solution for the Pyra.
Unless there's a way to integrate the Apple Watch then i'm really not interestedWith the built in GPS in the 4G model and Modrana already on the repo, navigation should be pretty plug and play. I used modrana on my N900, searching for addresses is a pain in the ass, but it does work pretty well
