Sprint HTC Hero :: International Voice / Data Plan Can Sign Up / Don't End Up Paying Sky-high Roaming Rates?

Jun 6, 2010

I'm heading to Halifax, Nova Scotia for a week and will be bringing my Hero with me. I'll be calling Sprint customer support to see what options are available for voice and data, but I trust the advice of folks in this forum.

Is there any international voice and data plan that i can sign up for so that I don't end up paying sky-high roaming rates? I really don't want to have to keep my phone in airplane mode the whole week. Any advice from travelers to the "Great White North" would really be appreciated, eh?

Motorola Droid :: Why WiFi With Data Plan?

Nov 8, 2009

I just got the Motorola Droid from Verizon with their data plan. Both at home and work, I can access the internet with wifi. Is there any advantage to using one over the other (obviously I use the data plan when wifi isn't available)? The data plan is one monthly fee that I had to pay anyway, but I didn't know if there was something I was missing?

Motorola Droid :: Data Plan And Tethering Both Unlimited?

Jun 13, 2010

There's been a lot of talk about this lately, so when I was on the line with a Verizon rep I thought I'd ask. Granted Verizon reps aren't always the most knowledgeable so take this for what it's worth.I asked about the data plan and she confirmed that it's the Air cards that are limited to 5GB. Currently there's no limit for phones. I then asked about tethering. She told me that since the Droid doesn't do tethering there are no limits. I inquired about third party apps that provide tethering and she responded saying that because those apps are not provided by Verizon they are not considered tethering, rather falling under the data category and are therefore unlimited.

Was just comparing the two data plans. The T&C is here:About Us Facts-at-a-Glance Acceptable use policy: Acceptable Use Policy They are listing it as "Unlimited Data Usage" plan and with my discount it's $35 a month.3) VOIP is mentioned as an acceptable protocol! This really surprised me.

Motorola Droid X :: Small Data Plan How To Optimize?

Nov 4, 2010

Just got the DROID X from Verizon and have the small 150Mb plan. I am looking to stop all unnecessary data usage unless I specifically want to use it. I have removed the news and weather widgets from my home screen and turned off "data enabled" and "background data" in settings/data delivery. I am around wifi all day so I can enable that if I want to download an app.Is there anything else anyone can recommend or will that stop the majority of back and forth data transfer from the phone?

How is verizon able to get away with tacking on $30 extra on top of the data plan for unlimited email & web browsing?If I cancel this will they block http & smtp from my phone when on the network? I assume I'd be good with wi-fi.Would they block widgets and other apps that use http protocol?
Can the web browser be set up to use a proxy?

HTC EVO 4G :: EVO 4G Data Only Plan?

May 1, 2010

I'm currently an iphone 3gs user and i've been hearing more and more about the evo that makes me love it. i'm an avid google user and i don't like how apple neuters their phone to google, or just about anything else to be honest. i've had to jailbreak just to get functionality that should come standard. I like that android obviously caters to google products and a small amount of research shows me that i can do everything i want with a droid device that i currently do with an iphone. on to my question...i could justify switching out of my current contract, but only on a monthly plan. my thought process is i could use a 4g device with google voip for calls. do you think sprint would sell data only plans to the phone?

HTC EVO 4G :: Can Get EVO Without A Data Plan

Jun 4, 2010

I don't want a data plan. I waited in line at the Sprint store for an hour and a half this morning before being told that i must have a data plan to buy the phone, and there are no current plans to sell it unlocked. I have wireless 95% of where I go. Dataplans cost more than all of my utilities combined. I cannot believe these criminals won't let me buy an unsubsidized EVO and use it as a normal phone.

HTC Incredible :: Data Plan

Apr 19, 2010

currently have the lg voyager with $10 vcast and $15 internet data plan. ordered the incredible from best buy and will be activating from home. do i have to call up and cancel these both before activating my incredible and will the data plan be automatically implemented since its required? im guessing its to much to ask to just cancel the vcast and see if the internet charge carries over at $15 instead of $30. either way it will be worth it to get rid of this brick of a phone.

Samsung Behold 2 :: Use Without Data Plan

Aug 12, 2010

I got another phone and gave my wife the Behold 2 without data plan. I signed in using my SIM card, then put her SIM in and signed in. So we can dowload apps using wifi (or do I just THINK it's using wifi?) and she gets her gmail. But no apps access the web and can't browse the web.

Samsung Fascinate :: Using SF Without A Data Plan

Oct 1, 2010

since launch day, Sept. 9. Just a heads up for anyone upgrading or opening up a new account to a smart phone. It's up to you, but you just might want to ask and confirm at the Point of Sale if you are indeed on the unlimited data plan.

Received an interesting text msg from Verizon. Turns out my balance is $494.90. Evidently, I've never had a data plan and I've been getting charged for every single Mb.

*611 and CS immediately recognized what happened. I was never put on a data plan at the POS. It's as simple and complicated as that. $340 in data charges. She put me on the $30 unlimited data and credited me the data charges minus the $30 I would've paid this billing cycle.

No big deal except the long wait time over the phone and for some reason it took her another five minutes to do whatever was needed to fix it. Also, it has to be "cleared" first because "of the size of the credit". She'll call me back Sunday(she's off Friday and Saturday... good for her) after 1pm to confirm and tell me it went through.

Samsung Galaxy S :: Using The GPS Without A Data Plan

Nov 20, 2010

(We'll see if this gets any votes for dumb question of the week.)I don't have a data plan, nor do I want one. I knew the GPS was problematic on the Galaxy S when I bought it, but I didn't really foresee much GPS use. I'm curious to play with it, but don't know how much I'll actually need it.Am I right in assuming that the basic GPS is separate from 3G in that I can use it to find my location? I understand that overlaying my location on Google Maps needs 3G (unless I'm using WiFi). However, is it also possible to overlay my location on off-line, cached maps like those in MapDroyd and Maps (-)?Also, what privileges/settings do I need for the GPS to communicate with these maps and show my location?

Android :: Nexus One With No Data Plan?

Mar 26, 2010

I've tried searching for an answer to this in the forums but I can't find someone who has already asked it.In any case I'm wondering whether its possible to use a Nexus One without a data plan. I have access to wifi pretty much everywhere I would use my device and thus a data plan really is not worthwhile for the cost.That being said I know that for other android devices, the very first time they're turned on, the user is required to connect to their Gmail account via data. Would I run into a similar situation with the Nexus One? Is it possible to use the device from the get go without any data? Do any of the primary apps(besides google maps obviously) absolutely require data to be used?

Android :: T-Mobie G1 - MMS Without Data Plan

Jan 26, 2010

We bought a G1 off of a 3rd Party Carrier (brand new), and activated it via Wifi.Tmobile was able to recognize it when we put the sim card in.(the picture of the phone appeared when we went to account settings within the tmobile website).So basically, we have an unlimited text and messaging plan. and NO data plan.
The internet works fine on the phone when using wifi. However, we are having issues with picture messaging. We receive the text message + picture attached, however, the g1 will not let us download it. I have looked around and seen workarounds for this error.One method was to forward the text to an email and download it from there. However, we could not get this to work.SO my question is,What (if any), is the most up-to-date method to get MMS over Wifi without a data plan.

HTC Incredible :: Data Plan Difference

Apr 18, 2010

So after reading some other questions on here, I'm still kind of confused about the point of buying the $45 vs. the $30 data plan. What's the benefit of the more expensive one? From what I had understood in the past is that the $45 is if you want your exchange account pushed and synced, which I thought implied that you did not get those exchange features on the $30 plan. One of the big needs I have is that I can get my college e-mails, on an exchange server, pushed/synced to/on my phone.

HTC Incredible :: Data Plan - Top Priority

Jun 20, 2010

Remember when choosing your minutes was the single most important thing on your cell plan? Then slowly, texting options became more important? Now, with smartphones everywhere, I see the Data Plan as the most important option. As for me, when I see the incredible, I see so much more than just a phone. For me, the phone part seems more like a tacked on feature in that the device is so much more capable than a mere phone. With its constant connection to the internet and its ability to run apps ranging from anything to everything you can imagine, the Incredible seems to fully capture the term 'Personal Computer'. Of course, having minutes to talk on your phone is important, but is that slowly becoming less and less a priority? With the availability of Skype and other VoIP services, could cell phone plan minutes be a thing of the past in the not to distant future?

HTC Aria :: Something Consuming Data Plan

Jul 15, 2010

I'm a noob and this is my first phone with a data plan. I installed 3G watchdog and I see the usage going up even though I haven't done anything through the 3g network. I've done my app downloads and surfing via Wi-Fi and as the phone sits idle the usage creeps up ever so slightly. Is this from the phone updating and considered normal? The usage is about 1mb per day so after a month that's 30mb. Is something running in the background that shouldn't be and if so how do I find it?
