    Just out of curiosity, if Sprint PCS or any other carrier had a plan with
    unlimited whenever, where ever minutes (no nights and weekends, no mobile to
    mobile, etc) what would you pay? I thought a while back that I had heard
    that ATTWS had that type of plan for $99.99, but I think it's gone now.
    These days you can get unlimited calling at home from a couple different
    companies for around $35-$40 per month. IF carriers did this what would you
    pay? I'm thinking that I probably wouldn't pay more than $70 for that type
    of service.

    What do you think?

    Nextel has an 'all-you-can-eat' plan for $199.99, but it includes everything
    (Direct Connect and Data). It seems wayyyyyyyyyyy out of line, but do the
    $35-40 per month plans you're thinking of for landline include long
    distance?

    I think he's referring to small regional carriers. Unicel, a division
    of RCC, offers unlimited minutes for 32.95/month in North Dakota, South
    Dakota, and Minnesota. Long Distance is 15 cents per minute, and GSM
    roaming is 25 cents per minute.

    They fail to mention on their website that they also provide post-pay
    accounts without requiring a contract. If you bring in a phone of your
    own, they waive the activation fee, give you a free SIM card, and waive
    all other start up fees. However, you must provide at least 30 days'
    written notice prior to cancelling.

    If it really included *everything*, like Vision, analog roaming, voice
    command, sending pics by email, etc., I would pay $100 a month.

    200 is steap especially for nextel... At one time I was lucky. In my
    market long ago one could get vzw unlimited local (cellular local)
    calling for 49.99. It was the bomb. Think I honestly used 140 hours one
    month. I would pay 100/month for unlimited voice and data..... Don't
    know if I will ever get both. attws was close with the 99.99 roam+ld
    but that lacked data... data is ny friend. spcs gives me a decent
    deal...i have the $65 f&c+vision+7pm.

    That depends on the limitations.

    example my brother had a 3000 anytime minutes plan. but with that plan he
    did NOT get unlimited text no nights and weekends and no mobile to mobile
    and he was NOT allowed to ADD any of these.

    on most plans you could for example pay $10 extra for unlimited texting.
    this was not an option on the 3000 minute plan

    so it would depend on the options and limitations and what it came with.

    what I would like to see is a pay one fee DO ANYTHING YOU WANT with your
    phone (txt call internet laptop link etc..) for a half way reasonable price.

    right now I am fine. I have 400 day minutes but I never go over. unlimited
    night and weekend is meaningless to me. when I have 2600 or whatever it was
    I TRIED to use them. even when I had wireless web on my 6200 I TRIED to use
    them all and I failed.

    just depends on your usage. My dad pays for 3 phones right now (not mine I
    pay for that) and he pays some $300 to $400 a month. sometimes much more
    till they got the plans that fit them best sorted out

    Example found out my brother did NOT need many anytime minutes at all. 200
    would do although I think he is getting a thousand. he just needed nights
    weekends. mobile to mobile and txting. since his girlfriend is same provider
    it is perfect for him. (95% of his calls and txt's where to and or from her)

    The two that I was actually referring to both seem to be national "carriers"
    but it's not traditional companies. I didn't want to seem like I was
    advertising/spamming for them.

    They are:

    Earthlink http://www.unlimitedvoice.com/
    and
    Vonage http://www.vonage.com/

    Both of these companies utilize your broadband connection and a router to
    access telephone lines, and both include unlimited local and long distance
    charges.

    Yes, supposedly the both include unlimited local and long distance usage.

    I was referring to voice only I guess. I'm not really a big data user, so I
    didn't really think about that side of it.

    I would pay $70 for voice and no more than $100 for everything else
    included.

    Sprint actaully has an unlimited plan. I do not know a lot of the details
    but it is part of the Sprint Complete Sense (I don't think, but don't really
    know, that you can get the plan seperate)... It is something like $189 and
    that includes unlimited PCS and unlimited long distance from your home phone
    (I also think you still have to pay your own local phone carrier, at least
    in my market. And, I don't know if that includes data or not. Just seen it
    in a paper at the local sprint store the other day.)

    Promotion; only on their next-generation GSM network, not on their much larger
    TDMA network.

    Alltel charges $69.95 for postpaid unlimited home-area calling. You still
    pay per minute for long distance, and if you roam, you pay roaming, long
    distance and airtime; unlimited doesn't apply. This is in Cleveland - don't
    know if it's in any of their other markets.

    Whether it's worth it and what price would make sense depends on
    how much you spend on your cell bill each month.

    Not when you consider that for $150-200 per month you usually only get 1500-
    3000 minutes. I know people who talk more than that...

    They aren't cellular carriers, either. Different cost structure. I think
    the VoIP'ers major costs are generally their Internet connectivity and
    the long distance wholesale charges...

    Good point- I guess I just don't use everything enough to justify a $200
    bill every month. Now if it included a wireless, truly high speed data
    connection.......

    I wouldn't pay anywhere close to $200, even if it included
    all-you-can-eat 2mbps EV-DV. I doubt if many others will either.
