Verizon introduces new Nationwide messaging plans
For those individuals who use their cell phone, Blackberry, or Smartphone more for texting and data than for voice calls, Verizon has now introduced new Nationwide messaging plans that could be your answer. These new plans are offered as "stand alone", which means you are not required to have a voice calling plan. Messaging prices range from $34/month for standard cell phones, to $54/month for PDAs, Blackberries, and Smartphones. All of them include unlimited IM, text, picture and video messaging, web browsing and data usage. Unlimited E-Mail access is included with the $54 plans, but users of the $34 plan can add Mobile E-Mail service for $5/month. If you happen to find yourself in a position where you need to make a call, per-minute voice charges are 40 cents with the $34 plan and 25 cents with the $54 plans.

they're targeted to deaf ppl and those that really cant talk on the phones, its a direct result from both customer and employee feedback

To quote: “We developed these messaging plans in response to feedback from our customers,” said Robert Miller, vice president - marketing for Verizon Wireless. “We have a growing number of customers, particularly from the deaf or hard of hearing community, who are using their wireless phones to communicate via messaging. Our Nationwide Messaging plans offer an affordable solution for customers who primarily use messaging to communicate, giving them more choices to only pay for services they need.” from:http://news.vzw.com/news/2008/04/pr2008-04-14f.html Also these plans have always been availble, they have simply been tweaked to be more available should a regular customer choose to get this plan.

ITS A GRAND IDEA. I'VE ALWAYS WANTED TO HAVE A PDA/SMART PHONE PRIMARILY TO HAVE INTERNET ON THE GO AND NEVER NEEDED IT FOR AN ACTUAL PHONE SO THIS STANDS OUT FOR THAT WANT AS WELL.
