$80 a month? That's pricier then Cricket's "unlimited" data plan but it's all about the coverage , right?

Only $20 more then Virgin Mobile's 5 gig plan yet with gobs more coverage.

 

I hope this is real.

Wow boost mobile prepaid advertises here  unlimited talk, text and internet for like $50 a month but of course that is just for one phone.  Sprint regular service has been advertising constantly $69.99 for unlimited talk, text and internet for their contract plan.  Are the verizon prepaid phones any good for surfing the net compared to a 3g or smart phone?    Mary

The phones that you can use on prepaid are not made for surfing the internet, many of them don't even use 3G (phones in the "Feature" category) and the older "3GMM" type phones like the LG enV2 and original Samsung Alias hardly provided an enjoyable web browsing experience.

 

Even current 3GMM phones use proprietary WAP browsing and often have trouble with anything but the most well-coded mobile sites.  If you want a good browsing experience, get a smartphone or a USB data card to use with your computer.

That's what I figured.  What's the sense then to waste the money doing that is beyond me.  Mary

The data plans that are posted here are for usb modems. If you have bad credit or don't really use the internet, travel, etc they work great. if you want to download large files they don't work so good cause it will time itself out. but overall they work really well. this plan has been out for almost a month now just an fyi.
