    I currently have a Blackberry Pearl with the Blackberry plan and Tethering. I have now retired and do not need the Blackberry services, email, music, camera, etc. What I do need is as follows:

    1) We travel a lot outside of cities so I need a phone with GREAT reception.

    2) A good speaker phone is a must.

    3) the ability to connect to Mobil broadband for tethering is a must.

    There seems to be a lot of choices, is there one that will give me these features and I can use the $9.99 data plan instead of the $29 plan?

    Best thing to do is visit a store and check out the live phones. Teathering a regular phone is more than what you are paying now, but I am sure there is device which will fit your needs and run on the 9.99 data plan. Again tethering is extra.

    Here is a link that might help Broadband Connect

    You may be better off just getting a regular cell phone from Verizon, and then getting an aircard from either MyCriket, OR if you want to make the jump to 4G, look in to Clear (or Sprint's 4G/3G service), which you may be able to get cheaper from your cable company, as Comcast, Cablevision, Cox, etc are reselling it and discounting it IF you already have cable with them.
