Ok, now if I go here:
it shows some pricing information, but not sufficiently clearly. I could have sworn it was not doing that properly a few minutes ago. I think this might not be the first time I've run into such a "glitch" on the Verizon web page.
Thanks, I am gradually sorting it out. At first glance, I can't see how it will function for a one-person household with one device. I also don't see how it would function if I buy a second device (no contract) and activate it only for when I need it (such as a wifi device for occasional travel).
