Actually, I just got off the phone with Verizon customer service and was told that since I have a premium plan I should ask for the connect plan which in essence is unlimited data plan for the multimedia phones at the same charge as the 10 dollar 25MB data plan. Does anyone have any information that would say otherwise? When I originally saw the connect plan I thought it was 20 dollars. But from what he told me it would basically be 10 dollars. The other 10 was from a charge I get for having the family plan and to be able to share all the phones. But basically it'd be 10 dollar charge for sharing minutes which is incurred no matter what data package I get. Then the connect would be another 10 dollars (which is what I'd be paying in the data plan) for unlimited mb usage.
Connect and Premium are no longer offered - if you have the VCast/Vpak grandfathered in, you can keep them as long as you don't change your voice plan (add or subtract minutes, for example). For the future (until options change again) you can get 25 MB for $9.99/mo (which I agree is nearly useless), or unlimited for $29.99, which if you are going to pay you might as well pay for a smartphone or a Blackberry.
