I'm planning on taking the HESI test in January for nursing school
, and I'm thinking of buying a new smartphone for nursing school. I don't have one right now, hence my question on here (for those who are used to everyone having a smartphone).
I'm thinking of dumping money on a new smartphone, apple watch for clinical (I guess vital machines can all pair up to each Apple watch simultaneously), Ipad Pro for anatomy 3D, power points, etc and mobile wifi for my house (since I'm not paying for the apartments weekly wifi anymore since it's per device).
I'm wondering if my data will all go onto one plan or if they'll have separate plans. Maybe someone who has what I'd like to buy that I listed above could provide some insight.
And when you guys are at home studying, how much internet do you think you use without surfing on social media? Verizon has unlimited plans but throttles back after 22 GB.
T-mobile's plans look attractive because they throttle back after 50 GB now (as of Sept 19th).
T-mobile seems like the better, cheaper deal than Verizon, but Verizon, I guess, has the best coverage. I don't want outages or service interruptions.
P.S. Regarding the Apple Watch thing, I recently passed the nutrition course requirement for nursing school. In the course, we got to do an extra credit thing where we got to play as a patient and the student was evaluated by the instructor and he had to ask me things. Whatever he didn't ask me, I wasn't supposed to ask or answer. My patient, I played as was a young high school kid needing a sports physical. It was 45-minutes physical. The student who performed the physical on me had an Apple watch. Fast forwarding to a guy I know who is in the program, he too has an apple watch. I don't know who told these guys that it was a great deal, but rewinding back to the sports physical thing, I asked the instructor why they have them and I think she said it's because some facilities have monitors that all can communicate to an Apple watch device (maybe even a smartphone?). That's why I want to buy an Apple watch. I guess it makes the workload easier to handle rather than going around to each individual machine.

Quote from That Guy
22gb is not a lot if you are using cellular as your sole means of data. I have a cable internet and easily push 800gb a month through it, but that is with Netflix, gaming, etc etc. That being said, my mobile plan only has 2gb because I rarely use my phone in places that doesn't have wifi. I like Verizon, they have the best coverage but their prices and tactics are less than to be desired. TMo is certainly climbing the ranks and is not a bad choice.
Yeah, I don't intend on using convenient social media pleasures while in nursing school except for googling stuff like EKG signs, acid/base electrolytes, etc. Once I'm in, family is blocked out, Facebook is blocked out, friends are blocked out, and anything else sleazly, googly eyed that influences lazy weazle-ness.
Btw, I kinda dislike the unlimited option for Verizon's cellular plan. I think it'll be seperate from the mobile wifi, Ipad LTE, and the Apple Watch LTE. I think they'll all have their own seperate plans.
