Verizon No Longer Requires Data Plan on Samsung Rogue

Saturday, June 11th, 2011

Did you know that Verizon no longer requires a data plan on its 3G feature phones, such as the Samsung Rogue?

My daughter and I got the Samsung Rogue last year because we liked the phone, but we did not want the data plan. For one thing, I did not want my 13-year-old to have instant internet access. For another, I did not want to pay for something we simply were not going to use. But when we finally got our turn to purchase the phones after waiting in a long line at the Verizon store, we found that Verizon required you to buy a data plan if you bought a 3G feature phone! Even if you told Verizon to disable the ability to go online, you still would have to pay the monthly fee.

We could either pay $30 for unlimited data per phone or $10 for 25MB of data per month. Instead of going back to look at phones that did not require a plan, we just sucked it up and got the $10 a month plan on each. Since you never know how much data you are using though, we did not access the internet much on the phone.

Each month–cha-ching!–I spent $20 for nothing. Kinda made me mad. After about a year (or $240 later), I find out that Verizon changed its data plans. One of the changes is that phones like the Rogue no longer require a data plan. Yea! I called Verizon and they took the data plan off my account!

So if you are a fellow Rogue phone user who does not use the data plan but pays for it, just call up Verizon and cancel the data plan. You will save $10 a month for each phone. Hey, every little bit helps!

Let me know if this is good news to you! I sure wish Verizon had let me know sooner.

Zazz Up Your New Rogue Phone . . . and Protect It, Too

If you have a new Rogue phone, the first thing you want to do is get it a new case and a screen guard, so that you protect your investment. You won’t find much in the way of stylish Rogue phone cases at the Verizon sore, and what you do find there is waaaay overpriced.

Kiosks at the local mall may a a few options for cool Rogue phone cases. But your best bet for the best Rogue phone faceplates is online. With hundred of options, it can take time to find the best hard cover protector for a Rogue phone. We recently got two Rogue phones and my daughter and I spent hours picking the perfect Rogue case. I’m sharing the best ones we found so you can save time looking. We found that Amazon had pretty good prices. Here’s the ones my daughter and I picked.

Polka Dot Rogue Phone Case

Polka dot phone cases are hot.  We  found this cool polka dot phone case for the Rogue at Amazon. polkadotphonecase

We like some other dots ones as well.

These are all quality phone cases that are cheaper to buy online than at the mall, even with shipping.

The best deal though, for a more professional looking case, is the Body Glove black with textured glove material. This sells for $30 at the Verizon store, but you can get it online for less than $10 even with shipping. I got this case and love it. Check out the customer reviews on it on Amazon.

Don’t forget to get a screen guard as well. We are loving the Rogue, although it takes some getting used to the touch screen as it responds differently than an iphone or ipod. Hope our review of Rogue phone cases help!
