Dear Dude or Dudette, You need a Data Plan And Phone Plan here's the difference.
The Data Plan able's you to do anything that relates to data such as, email,messenger,Internet,Gps,
The Phone Plan able's you to make phone calls, And Messege Center..
Both my wife and i have the following plan
Data Plan 45 - Unlimited Data $45.00
Phone Plan 35 - includes, 300min peak time 7:00am - 5:00pm
- Unlimited eve & weekends from 5:00pm to 7:00am
- Unlimited Text messages
- Mate to mate unlimited calling local and long distance
- And a whole lot more we pay per month $45.00+$35.00=$80.00
So remember that when you go to a smart-phone you need a data plan + phone plan
i know its different then what you are used too however that's how the cell companies are squeezing more money out of us for there services.
