2oldman,

Thanks for the "heads up".

Have you thought about the 55 plus on T-Mobile?

Another source may be "unlimitedville" https://unlimitedville.com/

No, but thanks. All things considered, Verizon's coverage has been almost flawless, so I'll have to forgive them a few things.

I get more amazed and amused every time I start reading a new thread about how much data, and how much it costs, and all that. Remembering back just a few years, when having a telephone meant having a nickle or quarter to put in a pay phone on the corner! Then looking at how fast this has all come about is also astounding! We were able to raise our family, tour a lot of the US, live our daily lives of work and play, when the only way to communicate with our friends and family was by letter mail written in longhand script and a week was really fast delivery time. And for some, the world was a better place. And mobile phones were in the truck of a car, and had long whip antennas.

Suggest checking out total wireless. It is a byop plan and they use Verizon towers. Plans are much cheaper, and add-on data is MUCH cheaper....5 gb add-on is only $10.00 and it will roll over in your account.

Am currently using a Moto g (factory bought, unlocked) on total wireless and do use it as a hotspot. 2 phones, unl talk & text, and 15 gigs of data for $57 a month. Extra data is 5 gigs for $10.
Total wireless still says no tethering but if you don't tell them, they don't know, and they do sell a mobile hotspot.
Oh and Verizon towers so same coverage as what you had.

I wish I had a time machine. I'd go back. I don't remember having the aggravation that I have now with all the electronics invading our lives. Password changes alone are driving me nuts. Not to mention all the thieves that now try in every possible way to swim into our finances through the "streams".

I wonder what it would be like to not touch it for a week. There is no phone on the wall or princess model by the bed!

Do you reach the same level of amazement and amusement when you talk on your own cell phone? When you are able to use a GPS (stand alone or on your phone)? Google everything? Order stuff from Amazon and have it arrive on your doorstep 2 days later? See cars drive by that don't use any gas? Watch HDTV or a 80" flat screen? Record 5 satellite channels simultaneously while you are away and watch the play back just like it's live? Things change. It really should not be surprising when folks discussing that they take advantage of these changes.


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

You don't need a time machine. Just stop using the computer. Get off this forum, no google, no youtube, no online maps, no GPS. Use paper maps, ask for directions. Write checks. Go into banks. Buy stamps, write letters, do business on the phone.

See how long that lasts.
