can somebody suggest to me what are the option if I want to use prepaid service but also want to activate emails and internet connection so I can use my phone for browsing, downloading and GSM navigation. No plan, only prepaid. Also is the coverage good in California?
To see if your phone works in CA just put your zip into the Verizon website and that will tell you. I don't think prepaid has the GMS I might be wrong on that. Hope some of this helps you.
