I've had my MOT9Qc for 2 years and I can upgrade now, but Verizon, in their wisdom, is making you take a $30/month data plan as the minimum data service when you get even one of their low end smartphones--HTC Ozone. Also, from what the Verizon customer service types have told me, you cannot turn off the data service once you get the phone--you're stuck with it for 24 months. Now one of the things I like about the 9Qc was that when i didn't need the mobile data--and there are months that I don't need it--I can turn it off and save $30. I'm thinking that there have to been other phones-multimedia phones ?--that can get email or web browse when you want to--and then turn the service off when it isn't needed. Any recommendations on this? thanks..
