So I'm paying 65 bucks per month tax included for 450 mins per month, unlimited web and pay per use text with Verzion. I was grand fathered in on their data plan. Thats not much per month but still looking to pay under 40 max for the same deal. I see Virgin Mobil and Boost have that kind of pricing just worried about being slowed down on data speed once I hit 2MB per month. I might get the Samsung Note 2 if I feel the need to indulge myself. . All over the map here looking for my next phone, I have the HTC Thunderbolt with the extended battery pack, it helps very little and the phone is horrible with 4G coverage in Seattle so I went to 3G all the time.
