    That looks viable,,,I know its cheaper than the $60 a month I pay for 6.5 GB but I'm only streaming music...would need bigger plan if i were streaming the net/ movies etc.

    I use a tablet on Verizon with an unlimited plan for Netflix and streaming. I had a Jetpack thing a few years ago but much more expensive and limited gigs.

    Best to get a larger cell data plan, as surfing the net uses pretty minimal data if you arent watching video.
    As far as Netflix best to download a series you want and watch offline
