    I just learned about this option in the n4 forum. Its getting on tmo's pay as you go plan. It doesn't have cell data only phone and sms minutes and you refill your plan as you use the minutes. I'd say 80% of my data is on wifi, but for sure having no cell data will be a pain.
    I used to be on a pay as you go plan on att several years ago and $100 would last me 3 months, compared to the $85 vz charges me a month.
    I been seriously thinking about going back to a dumbphone to save on monthly charges...so this is even better. A smartphone to use on wifi and save MAJOR bucks.
    Kinda cripples the nice Nexus. What u guys think?
    If email isn't critical to have all the time, I say go for it.

    $100 for 3 months or $85 a month............$85 a month or $100 for 3 months?? Seems like a no brainer. When you pay less, one has to assume you will get less eh? LOL

    If you can live without mobile data, sounds like a great way to save some money. You can always switch to a plan with data if it turns out not to work for you.

    I'll probably run stock 4.2 on my Nexus 4 for a while. Will unlock and root shortly after it arrives though.

    Have you looked at straight talk? I think they can go cheaper.

    Straight Talk throttles its data speeds at some point. They won't disclose specifics but the high-speed cap appears to depend on your area and how many users they have on the network. I've seen reports of some users getting throttled at 2 gigs while others have no problems using more high-speed data. My guess is, in the metro NY area, you'll get throttled to Edge after about 2 gigs.

    But with prepaid, it's easy to try it out for a month and switch if it doesn't work well for you.

    I refuse to be throttled. That's why no straightalk.

    IMA test out the 30 prepaid before I make any decisions

    Wow, I had forgotten about that. I got the Tbolt back when it launched on St. Patrick's day in 2011. The Tbolt was my first Android device; the the Nexus 4 will be Android phone number four.

    I think Verizon is going to lose a nice chunk of customers with this n4 launch. I don't really hate them but they are dam expensive and I'll be glad to leave.

    Slightly different path for me.
    First was the Fascinate, then droid charge (crappy) to gnex then n4.
    Gnex the longest, almost a year. Gasp.

    Not getting an n4, but I'm about to hit my 4th android device myself. Started out on the LG Axis (worst phone I've ever used), returned it for the HTC Wildfire(Bee), then the Samsung Showcase(Fascinate), and I'm hoping to get my hands on the Galaxy S2 here within the hour.

    Next step will be tracking down Root instructions for an SCH-R760
