Is the 3g worth trying?

5 replies 23 views Edited Feb 25, 2012

What can you really do with the 3g on the Vita? It does not really seem like much.


I heard you can't even use netflix is that true? I am debating on whether or not I should activate the free trial.

just an fwi, you don't get a free trial first. you have to buy a one month data plan, THEN they give u the second month free

Isnt it 14.99 but at&t gives u a free month after? From what i see, i pay 30 monthly for my phone plan, 8 for netflix, 30 for ipad 2, so another 15 sounds terrible especially for only 250mb. The 3g is 30 also so yeah ... No ty. IF u were going to get it, i suggest more data since the 15 dollar one will cost more in the end due to overages

I have the 250MB plan right now just to try it out.  It isn't really justified especially if you have a smartphone that can already use twitter and such.  You can send messages to PSN friends and that kind of stuff, use the web browser (which is actually pretty fast) and use twitter/facebook and probably netflix, but that is pretty much it.

Also I believe NEAR works better with it, and if for whatever reason you need the maps app while driving, the 3G will work, but I'll probably just use my iPhone for all of that and not renew my 3G after the free month unless there is some cool feature in a game that uses it.

I got the 250mb plan just for the hell of it and to see how much I'd use it. so far after a week and a half it hasn't been much.
