I am on Tmobile. A friend of mine is going to the UK for long term business trip 2+ years, he's on Verizon and asked me if I wanted to take over his data plan through something called an "AOL" process, which apparently means that I would take over his contract which has 1 year remaining, and I could use it as my own, use my own number, etc. all with the catch that I would have to buy my own phone... I realize that the cost of an unsubsized phone is ridiculously high... and Tmobile USA is still revamping their network. I had the intention of waiting for tmobile to refarm and get the Verizon iPhone unlocked to use with it.. now I am presented with a tough decision... I am an individual, and maybe years down the road will want to get on a family plan. I dont talk too much so 450 mins should be okay, but texting is a must... and I would like to hotspot occasionally Please help me decide.. what would you do? 1st option is: Wait for refarm.
