    That monthly fee is ridiculous. They should just charge for the phone and allow the content for free if you use them for Internet access.

    Re: Verizon Hub

    I don't get it......

    It's a regular phone turned into a smartphone, but it still isn't very smart.

    I can do everything that thing does on my computer or my phone already. Whats the purpose of having it?

    It will probably cost more than a pda and have less functions.

    I agree, plus you can't put it in your pocket

    I think you can link it to your mobile phone as well . . . Not 100% sure.

    Re: Verizon Hub

    I think verizon is a little late to the party on this one. I just found this article on it.
    Verizon's Hub: Reinventing the Home Phone - BusinessWeek

    This is something sprint put out last summer AIRAVE

    It allows you with a high speed internet connection to turn your cell phone into VoIP for $15 per month with unlimited mins/data usage the box is $99

    Verizon wants $200 for this and $35 a month and it is not even a cell phone..... It is just a souped up cordless phone.

    You can always go this route.
