Hey all. I'm getting ready to head home from Korea, and will be time to get a new phone as I turned my service off before I left. So, I was debating hard on getting another iPhone (love it) or an ipad mini. I wish the iphone had a bigger screen, but my iPad 4 is way too big to carry around. I love the weight of the Mini and it fits perfect in back pockets. I hardly EVER use a phone for phone calls, and I text more often than not. But I do need a phone for work purposes. With this in mind, I will also hardly ever use 2GB of data, so the base plan should be sufficient for me on my grandmothers shared plan. I know there are a couple of apps out there that give you phone numbers and VOIP features, so is there anything i should be concerned about before I dive in and do this? Anything that I should be aware of before going this route, as opposed to a dedicated phone? I've done some researched and just want to make sure I make the right choice before committing to the service. Also, do I need to get on a contract (Verizon) to use this, or is it a pay by month for data kind of thing? Thanks!
