Requiring a data plan
by DangMI - 8/25/09 2:44 PM
I agree that people who want a smart phone without a data plan are a small minority, but they sure should be able to do so. My wife--who is semi-determinedly non-geek--just wants something that would easily synch her calendar and contacts. She doesn't want to have to paste over into some proprietary phone book app every time she changes something, especially as far as appts and the like. And we're willing to pay a few bucks more for the features, even tho we'd be buying some capabilities that she won't use. But Verizon insists. Why don't they want our money? Now they're getting nothing!
