Went out an bought a phone and signed up for this plan yesterday. So far it's been a terribly disappointing experience. Every rep we talked to told us that email was included with the unlimited plan. It is not. Mobile Email is an option for an extra charge which doesn't make any sense since the service is for unlimited web access. Apparently email and web are two totally different things to Verizon. Under our verizon account online it shows Mobile Web included with our plan and Mobile Email being part of mobile web. The actual text is "Mobile email, part of mobile web..."
Go to Launching Mobile Web from the home screen nad press up on the Directional Key to laucnh your phones brower. The My Verizon screen will appear,9 I know on the Daily plan there is a 99 cdent WEB charge per day0 so it might be free with the monthly plan. Press to select WEB 99 cents. The VZW Today screen will appear and then your phone will be online. This method does not include Data (that part I'm not really sure about, maybe someone on this site with a 50.00 plan can help with that part. Are you using a Basic Phone? This is what it says on the information page.
|Per-Minute Rate After Allowance: If you have sufficient balance for your $50 Monthly Access, get unlimited calling, messaging and|
Mobile Web for 30 days. If you don’t have the enough funds to cover the monthly access, you will be charged 25¢ per minute, 20¢
per text, 25¢ per picture or video message, and 99¢ per day for Mobile Web.
We got the $50 unlimited package so it does include unlimited web. I understand how to get to the web the part that doesn't make any sense is that internet is unlimited but to recieve emails is $6.99/month. It was my fault for listening to the people at the Verizon store and the people I talked to on the phone. They all stated we would be able to use email from the phone when in reality we have to use the web to use email and not via an email app.
When I have to call a Verizon Rep. I call about 4 different Reps and see how many different answers I get. I use the daily prepaid and and use Yahoo, Hotmail or Verizon for the 99 cents per day, I very seldom use it on the phone since I'm a heavy texter an use email just on the computer. The good part is your only stuck in that 50 dollar plan for 30 days and can cancel it if you don't want want to pay the extra. Good Luck.
