To the OP, how much data do you need per month?

I like Visible... a Verizon company.

$40 a month (no more) gets me all the talk, text and high speed data that I need.

No gimmicks or slick tricks either.

Visible has started a service called "Party Pay". This can bring monthly service down to $25.

A while back I decided to try out the "unlimited /unthrottled" AT&T service that folks are pushing on EBay.

I have been using it for 6 months and have not experienced any throttling.

Unfortunately, the AT&T coverage is not very good in the area where I spend much of my time.

I see other RV'ers with Verizon that have great coverage while on the road. I just ordered the Visible phone and see if that serves me better.

Party Pay can have no more than four members. This brings the monthly payment down to $25 which includes all taxes and fees. I've been on the plan for a month. Your account remains private. Anybody can join the plan.

Here's a site where people post Party Pay spots:

Visible is a Verizon owned company and uses Verizon towers.

This is a real good suggestion. Picking up a $20 phone and then using the 1g service sounds like it would work for me. I have no idea how much data I use when I'm on the road but I suspect it isn't much. About all I do is check out interesting things to do and see along my route for the day. Check out email once or twice per week, and visit this and a couple of other web sites daily. Search for campgrounds ahead. No youtube, movies or Facebook type of stuff. Mostly use Google maps.

docsouce, let me know how that works out for you. We get 8gb for a two week trip and come home with little, if any, data left. But, the DW is a FaceBook junkie and post pics daily. I, like you, check email and future sites/campgrounds, etc.
We to are looking for a decent deal on data.
