National Access plan question

    So if I get a National Access plan, will I be able to get connected for data
    when I'm not in a National Access coverage area but am in a Verizon digital
    coverage area? IOW, use 1XRTT and if that is not available, use the
    Quick-2-Net?
    I know I cannot get connected when in an AMPS area - unless I have a King of
    Clubs card.

    No, you cannot get connected for data when in a National Access coverage area
    without paying the .25-.69 per minute for the call.

    That's what happened to us this week. We traveled into a non-NA area. I called
    Verizon and switched to an America's Choice plan so I could use Q2N or dial my
    ISP directly. The neat thing about it is that as long as I cancel this change
    within 30 days I will revert to my old plan with my old contract renewal date.

    Oops. That should be "when NOT in", of course.

    Thanks, Dave - answers my question. Looks like NA is not going to give me
    what I want.

    You can get an AC plan and use the National Access MOU plan. Then you
    have access to data in any native Verizon digital area. (And it's
    cheaper.)

    I'd *love* to get the NA MOU plan but there is such a confusion about
    getting it, according to the posts I have read on this forum. Some say it
    was added to their existing plan without asking, some say it was added
    because they asked and some say the Customer Service reps they talked to
    didn't know a thing about it. Some say they asked for it, were told NO and
    then it did appear seemingly out of nowhere. Besides that, it is all such a
    confusing mess with some bonuses being available in some area codes and not
    in others.

    I can only agree that the NA MOU policy is baffling for anyone wishing to
    use the plan. After reading the many differing experiences here, I called
    Verizon for clarification. One person agreed to set up the plan for me, then
    called back ten minutes later to say that a $79 per month subscription was
    required. Another person said the MOU plan was strictly for transferring
    photo images. A Verizon tech rep said the only service available for MOU was
    Quick2Net at a 14.4 connect speed. I took a chance and ordered a generic USB
    cable, which came with a modem driver. To my considerable surprise, when I
    connected my phone, I had NA MOU without any special enabling required. This
    is clearly a huge advantage for anyone with an unlimited nights and weekends
    plan. I guess all I can confirm is that it does work for some customers in
    some areas.
