I want to get an iphone but going from my current $30 montly plan to a $60 pre-tax and services plan is just not sitting well with me as a student.
1) Is having data important? Can I get by with just wifi? How many of iPhone owners do not have data in your plan...and how do you find it? I'm not sure if I can't use wifi at the hospital, but it's not a must, computers are available. I can use my computer or wifi at home and at the library.
2) What are your monthly voice and data plans and what features does that include? I'm in Canada, and trying to decide between Fido, Bell, Rogers & Virgin Mobile. They're all quite pricey but the 'cheapest' is Virgin Mobile....$50 for 150 minutes, 500 mb data, unlimited evenings & weekends starting at 7pm, and voicemail + call display. Total with taxes is $57.64.
3) Is it better to go to store and talk to a salesperson or call to get a good deal? Do you think I could negociate a better price?
