Default Droid question

Ok so my mom got me and my sister Droid Incredibles for Christmas. Verizon wasnt open on Christmas so we just played around with them and had gotten on the internet with wifi. Today we activated them and wanted a $30.00 "data plan" that noone told my mom about. We thought you could just get service and use the wifi as your internet. Is there any way to get around this bs?

nope, if you have a data phone it requires the $30 data plan, no way around it.

unlimited data usage. the phone will be pretty much useless without the data plan, thats why they require it on those phones.

Also if you dont get the data package (those phones are constantly online giving you temp, city info), Verizon will charge you something like 1.99 a minute its on line. I was at the Verizon store the other day and a guy was throwing a fit because his bill was over 1700.00

Ya it does suck.
we were with alltel so we were paying 15 for unlimited text and internet. We had to switch to a verizon phone. Basically because they were making all old alltel people. We ended up with droid 2's and paying Moore money

Ok my mom called. Since we switched from cell to smartphone, they take the $10 from the old phone and transfer it so you still pay 10 for that and you dont need it. We canceled that so its technically 20 now. Justa tip for fellow Verizoners
