Yes they have slightly lowered the cost.. Couple of $$ if you have your home phone with them.
Not unlike taking away our non sim, prepay for when needed, CDMA phone next July..
My iPad is on the old micro sim XT 2GB Prepay Data where my money can stay safe till needed, pity about all the new users .... changed to make a killing on the World cup visitors with iPhones & iPads I expect.
My Mac has an on account 4GB XT Data plan... the 24 months are just up... the more powerful SW USB modem I looked at last week has also gone.
I only have 3G Internet, no other choice.
Will go and check out Vodafone ~ maybe they have improved since I gave them back their broken vodem & changed to XT..
