do you really need the unlimited?

That is thing I have the unlimited and I come no where near the 3g plan benchmark. for most people it is a piece of mind thing but they really can do whatever with 3g's of data.


Shoot I even watch Netflix, HBO GO, etc... on my phone. Still don't even come close.

Re: Smart Phone Help

I have a screen protector and a shell on my Iphone. After a while my protector has gotten dirty but since my hands are dirty at work a lot I want it on there.

@Fireplug: It might be more of a piece of mind thing like mredskins said but I feel like I get a lot of heavy data usage out of my phone. I'm rarely at home anymore and I tend to look up a lot of things on the go. I'm not wayyyyyy up there but it does concern me. Next time I get a chance I'll look at my bill and check my data usage numbers against Verizon's new data rates.

Sorry man I don't remember what brand it is, I think I just bought it at Walmart or Target soon after I bought my Iphone. I know it came in a 3-pack though.

Are you sure? The reason I ask is because Corning, the maker of gorilla glass, does not allow for manufacturers to advertise if they have the glass on their phones or not. You may want to Google around a bit to confirm that. Plus if you've ever felt gorilla glass, you will know you have it.

htc says the one x has it
HTC One X Overview - HTC Smartphones

htc says the one v does not
HTC One V Overview - HTC Smartphones

corning agrees

Re: Smart Phone Help

did anyone else see the Samsung add attacking iPhone 5 customers. I thought it was hilarious to see Apple portrayed as the parents at one point. Cracked me up!

Samsung has been aggressive in their marketing against Apple. I love it.
