Pros and Cons of moving completely to a soft phone?
by thecuriousone - 11/19/12 6:16 AM
I am looking at the feasibility of using my nexus 7 hspa and a blue-tooth headpiece as my primary "phone" on the simple mobile carrier with a data only plan. Has anyone done this and if so, what things should I consider if I make this change? I'm nervous about the following areas: 1 privacy-should I consider enabling a vpn for all connections? 2.Is phone access any more limiting than simply being out of range from a phone network? 3 Is there a "fumble factor" that makes this process less smooth that I realize? 4. I plan to use Google talk, and to keep my primary email account separate. Should I consider another software/connection?
I'm not looking to play games or stream movies on the device. I want the ability to surf, search, speak, get directions and stay in contact either through voice, email or sms.
Thanks to all for any observations and/or comments
