Default Verizon plans - Mobile Web vs. Data Plans

I have spent a frustrating day trying to figure a way around Verizon's
apparent greediness. I currently use a 2 year old Motorola Razr with
Mobile Web 2.0. I bought a synchronization product from Motorola that
lets me update my phone numbers from the computer. But what I really
want is to stop carrying around my old Palm Tungsten E and get a phone
that will synch with my Outlook contacts, calendar and tasks, and
allow me to make updates. I don't really care about the mail as I'm
retired and can log in and look at mail online when I want to. So
what I'd like to do is keep the $5 a month Mobile Web for my web
access needs - it has worked fine for me. However if I buy a
smartphone with Windows Mobile on it, Verizon tells me the only way to
get web access is to buy a data plan - significantly more expensive
than the $5 a month I am paying now.

Wondering if anyone else has tackled this problem and come up with
solutions.

Thanks.

Carolyn

This question is asked often and as I understand it there is no workaround
for smartphones. If you want to use it as a smartphone you have to pay for
a data plan. Is there not a web-based solution, like google or yahoo, to
keeping a calandar etc. I pay $1 per month for web 2.0 access on my phone.
Web minutes count against my minutes except when the airtime is free.

Have you looked at howardforums for an answer?

I guess you didn't hear about verizon's new thing they have going.

Unless you signed up for a data plan ($60/month) or the vcast package
($15/month), you are charged $2/MB of data. So now on top of the
$1/month your paying for Web 2.0, you will also have to pay $2/MB of
data. (and yes, that is for any non-data/vcast plans)

That's only for new plans. People on legacy plans are grandfathered and
can still get data with MOU.

Carolyn, does Alltel have native coverage in your city? Where
are you?

You can buy Alltel 1X service, more than fast enough at 110Kbps,
to serve your needs for only $10/month for really unlimited
service, no funny business. Their phone plans are much cheaper
than VZW, too, probably easily offsetting the extra $5 for real
internet service.

Alltel, more interested in business than girls, also has many
good smartphones to upgrade to, COMPLETELY UNHOBBLED, at really
great subsidized prices for your 2-year-agreement. You can sync
them via the air or cable, whichever is more convenient for you
at the moment, without being forced by some stupid locking
software. Alltel won't install anything on your desktop
computer. You can even use your PDA as a phone modem if your
office broadband fails, or use a bluetooth connection for your
laptop at no extra charge.

It just works better.....

I had a problem when I switched phones to a new MotoROKR Z6M but
discovered a way to get my BT Nokia N800 to use it with a little
tinkering. Today, 2 weeks after I had called to tell them I'd
solved the problem, I get another followup call, just to see if I
was happy with Alltel's service. THEY called l'il ol' ME!
That's Alltel...They may not have the answer to your problem,
because my problem was with my Linux tablet, not their
phone....but they care enough to call back, something I really
appreciate any company doing, much less a SELLphone company.

You don't have to put up with Verizon's crap! They're not
omnipotent.

I heard that you have to pay alltel more $$$ when you roam on other
network's area (such as roaming on Sprint area), is this true?

Well it was just stared beginning of this month, so it cannot show on a
monthly statement as it hasn't been a month yet!

Nope.

Compare the nationwide coverage maps. That's not a roaming map....

Oddy (or cooley) enuf, I got an alltell phone off ebay (my verizon e815
died, so I got an alltel one), activated it on my verizon service, and all
sorts off cool things work now, that my phone didn't support... Makes me
sort of wonder, do you have to live in an alltell area? What about getting a
verizon plan with a free verizon phone, and just activating the alltel phone
on the verizon plan?

Your question is out of my experience, but I was thinking, if it is a
smartphone, there might be wi-fi or bluetooth capabilities, which might get
you going.

I'm just guessing here. Verizon may have crippled any alternative to their
$60 per month.

Yes, www.howardforums.com and http://mark.cdmaforums.com/ and

All you really need do is the first SEEM edit listed in the last link I

Ooops, should have mentioned the above will allow you to sync with your
RAZR, no need for a new phone.

Thanks - I've been using Motorola Phone Tools with my RAZR - only
would let me synch phone book, not calendar. I called MPT support the
other day and they led me through changing the phone driver to V710.
When I did this I could synch both calendar and phonebook -
interesting workaround I thought I'd pass along.

I had the E815 on Alltel, itself. After replacing it twice, the
story changed as to why it wouldn't stay connected to Alltel's
EVDO or 1X circuits. It seems the E815, itself, has been
defective in its data implementation....all of them...which
caused random disconnects for no reason other than I clicked a
webpage or started a stream running. The phone to Alltel link
would dump, reconnect and resume (unless, of course, the server
you were connected to was looking for you to be at the same IP as
before, which you were not.)

The Alltel cure was to sell me a new Moto ROKR Z6M slidephone
with really cool internal features like the 2 megapixel camera
and a bug-free (so far) data link on both the Bluetooth to my
Nokia N800 internet tablet...and Alltel's EVDO ($25/mo) internet
service. It stays connected until I finally kill the phone's
battery, if I forget to look and plug it into the
car/motorcycle/wall to recover. Unless it runs out of power, the
ROKR Z6M stays connected continuously to Alltel EVDO. Works much
better than the E815 did, even on its best day. Perhaps you
could find one of these Alltel Z6Ms if you find your E815 dumping
you from the VZW system you're not supposed to use, anyway.

All E815's have defective data hardware/software that, I'm told,
cannot be fixed, by both Alltel Data Support and Motorola,
itself.

I know of 5 e815's off the top of my head that have no problem keeping
a data connection for as long as you want. One of them being vzw, and
the other 4 Alltel, and all with various SW versions. I have actually
never heard of this problem except from you Larry. I mean if both
companies were admitting a hardware fault, wouldn't there be a class
action suit brought about already?

All I know is what Alltel's Data Support told me was the reason I
was getting a real bargain of a ROKR ($50 after rebate), like a
new customer. I met someone, just today, who was a new employee
of Alltel at the local office, and he'd been through FIVE E815
phones, himself.

Why would anyone sue them if they make it right? That's stupid!
The ROKR I got is a helluva lot more phone, dispite its trying to
sell me something at odd intervals I can't stop, than the E815
ever was.

The ROKR ROKs!...(c;
