My 2 year contract is coming up with Verizon and I am interested in the Droid Eris. I play with my friends Iphone and enjoy the fact that the Eris can duplicate it especially with the apps. But I'm a little worried because I dont want to pay the $30 per month. I dont need unlimited internet on my phone, I wont use it that excessively and I dont need the unlimited email either. Do I need the $30 per month plan, or can I enjoy all the benefits of a smart phone with limitations, at a cheaper price? Someone told me it is a mandatory deal just like with the Iphone.
