    Quick Question

    I keep hearing about this 5mb thing which i dont understand..I am getting the Q9c today..


    this 5mb that is if i use the Moto Q9c as a modem correct to connect my pc or laptop to the internet..

    If im right then i dont need the 44.99 plan i can get the 29.99 since all i want is it for unlimited email. Msn/aim messaging and web browsing

    i was told thats what the 5mb is for

    the 5Gb is for all data usage.. not just the tethering.

    so if i use the internet alot i will need to get the 44.99..i mean if i will be on the internet alot with the moto q9c i should get the 44.99 plan



    verizon told me that the 5gb is only if you connect the Q to a computer to use it as a modem

    not sure what you mean with a lot... but for most 5Gb is enough, i think the $44.99 data plan has a "cap" of 10Gb..

    yea, i don't think so... and btw officially Verizon wants you to get the $44.99 plan and an extra i believe 15 bucks a month to use their "tethering".. most here who do tether use PDANet which is a one time 30 dollars..

    nothing special... just another way for them to get more money from you :}
    oh... they -Verizon- do not approve of tethering unless you use their method and pay them... so don't go overboard on internet usage..

    seriously..save yourself money you will never hit that 5gig limit unless your streaming internet radio everyday all day

    get the 5gig 29.99 plan
    especially since you said you werent going to tether

    calls and texts dont use data

    internet uses data but unless your surfing nearly 24hrs a day and streaming videos 24hrs a day or streaming radio 24hrs a day you will never hit 5gig

    email and IM dont use that much data

    seriously....get the 29.99 plan
