30 dollar data plans are garbage so I agree, I don't need unlimited, most people are unaware of how much they don't need. I dont even hit 2gb a month and that's always downloading crap off the market.
That's the downside with verizon, they overcharge for everything, but people stick with them because their coverage and service is some of the best. Of course they can't please everyone so theres always going to be an unhappy camper but in the 5 years I've been with them , I've had like 3 dropped calls.

Data plans are too expensive anyway. They need to get cheaper, I'm not paying $30/month!
I gave my En-V2 up for a couple of reasons. The En-V 2 is a one-trick pony. Well, two. It's tough as hell and it plays music. My Droid, on the other hand, can:
Act as a bubble level
act as a metal detector
tell me all sorts of info on GPS satelites
check out Wi-Fi signal strength
Get people's attention
act as a ruler
act as a speedometer
act as a satnav
Allow me to be an arse to people who call me(<3 soundboards)
act as a modem whether Verizon likes it or not
Act as a netbook
remotely control my TiVO
Measure G-forces in all three directions
act as a seismometer
Porn on the go
real-time currency conversions
Tough as hell
act as a flash drive
digital audio recorder
portable weather station
portable radio, mainly because I have an FM station worth listening to
Then there's the durability. It's just as tough as my En-V 2 was. And the cost. I paid a whopping 20 bucks for it! Let's Talk!, the cell phone department within Walmart, was having a crazy good deal on Moto Droids about the time I came up for upgrade. So bam. Went for it. Can't say I regret it, either. The Droid is a swiss army knife in cell phone clothes, and I haven't even scratched the surface of how many apps there are and what those apps can do.Edited by TestECull - 1/1/11 at 2:16am
