Cell Phone Considerations

GalaxyI need your opinion:

I am thinking of buying a new cell phone ((4G Samasung Galaxy SIII for $199) and giving my hubby my old Droid Incredible. This would also involve changing my plan. I need to know if you think it is worth doing or not.

Here is what I have:

Droid incredible (unlimited data which I use about .2G last month), text msg, 450 min. unlimited Verizon to Verizon), Ipad (3G data plan which I used 3G last month). I pay $127 per month. I used about a total of 3.2G of data last month. I also pay $50 per month for a landline.

New plan:

Unlimited min. and unlimited texting, 4G of data for all devices, my phone and Ipad can be used as hotspots. This would cost me $146 per month and I would get rid of my landline.
I’m just worried about giving up my unlimited data plan on my cell phone that I don’t use much but I would be adding an extra G on my Ipad which I use a lot.

Are there other options I should consider?

What do you think?? Help!

I've got a lovely rotary-dial phone you can borrow. Just kidding. I cannot give you any advice because I just recently learned how to text.

Good luck, Pat. But it sound like since you use your ipad a lot, if you get more coverage/useage of your ipad, it sounds like a good deal.

I really don't know if 4G is worth loosing your unlimited data over because I have AT&T which rarely seems to work anyway. :/ However, if you are on wifi a lot or really do not use more than whatever you new allotment of data will be, the go for it. I switched from unlimited to 3Gigs/month when I switched phones, but since I have wifi at home and live in a city with ample hotspots, I haven't gone over my limit....yet. :D I'll see if I'm regretting it now that I don't have wifi at work. (I had it at work and school previously, but just started a new job and I don't have it.)
