So I just recently noticed Verizon added a new Wifi only prepaid plan for $30. This is something I'm intrigued of trying out since I do tend to use Wi-Fi more than my actual data but every once in awhile I like to send MMS which sadly requires data to do so. I was wondering if anyone has tried out the new plan. I was hoping they would some more data to their current plans hopefully that is coming soon.
I currently have that plan and the issue I had last night was that I couldn't send or receive iPhone messages. It's a lot of work to get to send a text message when wifi isn't available and I can't ask my friends to accommodate to my phone. Texting and receiving was easy with my friend who had an Android but not my iPhone friends. It would really depend on the kind of phone you get, with this plan.
As for the MMS, it seems to not work without data/wifi.
You could use verizon messages to send via wifi, but....you could also use Project Fi for the same price with 1 GB data. Have to get a Nexus though.
