    Verizon is now offering unlimited internet with a laptop card for $40/month.
    I am still paying Sprint $80/month for the same service. Does anyone know if
    Sprint is going to lower their price for unlimited internet?

    Oh, I'm sure that they will if they notice a lot of defections. Have you
    tried calling into SPCS to say you want to cancel your data coverage, and
    see whether they might work with you on giving you a better price?

    I just started using Sprint data about 4 months ago and therefore I would be
    liable for the ETF, however it would be worth it to eat the ETF in order to
    get a lower price. I will try giving them a call.

    I didn't see that on SPCS's business page. All I saw was

    Actually, it's $60 a month.

    I had heard that they already have. Though I could be wrong.

    Where?!
    http://www.sprint.com/business/produ...VisionPlan.jsp
    ($79.99 unlimited)

    (I had to come home today to solve a problem because GPRS was just too
    slow. I need a better solution.)

    available. Separate Sprint wireless phone voice subscription required.
    Currently unavailable in retail channels.

    "Currently unavailable in retail channels."

    Huh?

    Ah! O.k., yes. I have Sprint phones already so that would be fine.
    Too bad they won't allow a (reasonable) voice plan on the connection
    cards. I'd love to put one in the car.

    I did think it would be worthwhile to go with a different carrier so
    that I would have a little diversity. I'm not thrilled with Verizon's
    terms of service, though; pretty much everything except simple e-mail
    and Web browsing is prohibited. (I'm still looking for Sprint's ToS.)

    Thank you.

    While I haven't looked at Verizon, how can they restrict the type of data?

    My voice plan is not with Sprint. I use Sprint for my data and have an
    unlimited plan for $79 which I will try to get lowered to $59.

    I subscribe to the laptop plan on my PDA (Audiovox 6600) which will be
    EVDO compatible very soon. I tether the unit to my notebook all the
    time and tolerate the extra level of hassle of the tether to have the
    advantage of the wirelss data on my PDA as well.

    One advantage that I find with the Sprint plan is that calls on the
    Sprint network (on data only plans) are $0.20 a minute. While that
    would be expensive for a cell phone plan, it is a great rate for a back
    up phone. When I find that I have only Sprint (network) coverage and
    do not have Cingular coverage, it is a nice fallback. It has also been
    helpful the one or two times that my cellphone battery died on me.

    It's not so much that they restrict it as that they prohibit the type
    of data (and other facets) on the unlimited plan. The threat is that
    if they decide you've been doing something prohibited they'll bill at
    the high per MB rate.

    Yes, I realize that many people get away with not adhering to the ToS
    but I like to be open about what I'm doing and I don't want to get
    dinged by my carrier.

    i.e. for businesses and government agencies only, that'd be my
    interpretation... not for individuals
