I need to access the Web via my Android phone's cell radio only occasionally. Therefore, I am not interested in a monthly plan (and certainly not in a 2-year minimum contract).
I thought that finding a prepaid web access card (or plan) for Android phones would be as easy as finding one for voice but it turns out way more difficult than I had hoped for:
- T-Mobile's attractive
Web DayPassworks with phones, but not with Android ones.
- Verizon's Prepaid Mobile Broadband is not intended for phones at all (Android or not).
What are my options really as far as minimizing the cost of occasional web access via my Android phone, legally and reliably ?
At this point, I am flexible as to whether the solution is for CDMA or GSM (it is still much less expensive to buy a new phone than to sign for a 2-year contract)
