I've been researching these boards, reviews, etc. for the best services. I'm down to the following option, but need some information from anyone who has these services.

Page Plus - 1,200 Talk, 3,000 Text and 500MB at $29.95. If you have this plan and are based out of Florida what are the extra taxes on your bill? I'm trying to get a good estimate on the total monthly charges.

Any dropped calls, texting issues? Have you added a repeater or signal increase to your RV with this plan.

MiFi from Millenicom $69.95/20GB. Looking for total monthly charge - taxes, etc. for this service

Same as above ... have you had to add anything to increase signal strength when you are in remote areas.

Thanks for any input, reviews and feedback.

A MiFi device would not have talk or text plans included! MiFi devices are data only devices. Also, 500MB is a minuscule amount. You'll need more like 2GB to be happy.

I'm getting both options. I want the smaller Page Plus for Phone, Text and the Millenicom for internet.

I'm looking for total monthly cost for each of these with the added taxes, etc. so I can update my budget.

Thank you!

We just barely make my monthly 3GB dataplan with Verizon using my grandfathered MIFI unit. This is just for checking emails, paying bills on-line, keeping in touch with the kids, and some minimal surfing.

If you want to downstream "anything" like movies or TV channels the 20GB dataplan is almost too small as well...

If we ever want to get into downstream thing the MILLENICOM Verizon MIFI package for the appx $60 a month would be the way we would go.

Judge accordingly...

We don't download movies or listen to music. We have iPhones and never come close to 1 GB so going to 20GB with Millenicom will be more then enough.

The Page Plus is for our Talk, Text and just some small needed data options.

Hoping to keep total budget of two phones and internet service at $130/month, but don't know what extra taxes and misc charges that are added to these plans.

Hoping someone has either one of these plans and can inform me of their total monthly bill.

Thanks!

Hi,

Check the coverage for Metro PCS. If it meets your needs it includes (so I believe) unlimited tethered data, no long distance fees, and unlimited minutes.

Coverage may be an issue--so check that carefully first.

I saw you have an iPhone but not sure what service Verizon or AT&T.

I have an AT&T iPhone and it has a WiFi hot spot on it I had to call AT&T to get it and it works very well. As far as cost or data amounts I have the Mobil Share plan at $85 a month unlimited voice, text and 1GB data.
I know the data is not much but for me it works. You can boost up the data amounts for more money and that I will do if I go to Oregon next summer.
Anyway just an FYI
