  • Verizon Offering Unlimited and 25MB Pre-Paid Data Plans

    Verizon announced today that they are now offering Unlimited and 25MB 3G data plans for their pre-paid users. The pricing seems reasonable as well — at least on the unlimited plan, which comes in at at $30. At $10 a month, the 25MB plan is a bit steep.

  • Verizon Blitz looks really beautifu—aw, I can’t do it!

    Like a shot in the eye from squirt gun filled with horseradish juice, here comes the Verizon Blitz. Gah!

  • 'Hop-On' with a $10 pre-paid cell phone

    I’ll let you in on a boring little secret: I don’t own my own cell phone. Due to my job as reviews editor, I rely on using demo phone after demo phone and have a Grand Central number that I forward to whatever device I happen to be using at the time. The system’s worked out well so far, but I know there will come a point in time — a perfect storm, if you will —… Read More
