We’ve tried, and tried, and painstakingly tried to tell people about Verizon’s 5 GB of free Mobile Hotspot to anyone with a Pre Plus or Pixi Plus. We’ve gone farther, and explained how you can combine that with their $15, 150 MB data plan. In fact, we saw this as such a game changer, we gave the Pre Plus our Phone of The Year award for 2010 because of it.
But, sadly, some people still don’t get it. We keep hearing people tell us they “didn’t know this was possible.” We tell them to read PhoneNews.com daily, and that will help them avoid the shame.
So, we’ll tell you again, with a new twist. BeDeals is offering the Pixi Plus for $64.99 with free shipping. You can activate this on any modern Verizon plan, alongside either the $15 or $30 data plans… and yes, you’ll get 5 GB of Mobile Hotspot data each month.
And yes, this is totally supported by Verizon Wireless. You can even call for tech support if you have issues with it.
And no, this offer will not be valid on the Pre 2. We asked.
Help spread the word and push the carriers to match what Pre Plus and Pixi Plus have on Verizon. Tweet, digg, and post this article on Facebook, your blog, and anywhere you think it’s prudent to do so. The more people that know 5 GB of Mobile Hotspot can be economical for $0, the more pressure the carriers will have to make it the standard.
Update: BeDeals is sold out, but you can still take advantage of the free Mobile Hotspot deal by grabbing a Verizon Pre Plus or Pixi Plus new or used… from Craigslist to your local Verizon Wireless store, and just about anywhere in-between.
