How real is Verizon’s EVDO price cut?


Like everyone else, I rejoiced at the price cuts introduced by Verizon’s new EVDO service. I missed reading the fine print, but Mike did not. “If you want the $60/price you have to be a Verizon Wireless voice customer as well. Otherwise it’s back at the $80 price point,” he writes. Yikes!

This is not as galling as the bundled DSL thing. EVDO is not good enough to support high quality VoIP, so you can’t use it in place of standard mobile voice. VoIP on DSL is good enough to replace your POTS line, however.

I just got a V620 today for $60/mo without having to become a voice customer. However, I had to buy the v620 card for $100, instead of $50 (I think that was because the rebate offer had expired though).
