Have you checked into Net10? One person with unlimited talk, text and web (up to 3GB) is $49 with tax. Two people would probably be about $93. You can use it with AT&T or T-Mobile. You'd have to get new phones.

This seems potentially relevant:

http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/andro...S4/story01.htm

Verizon*has held its stance that only postpaid customers should receive LTE data on its network, but starting this month that may be ready to change. According to a source of*Droid-Life, Verizon is set to add LTE data access to*its prepaid ALLSET planon July 17th to better compete with the growing prepaid offerings from other carriers.

Assuming that this comes with no price premium (that's still to be determined), starting this month we could be looking at a base Verizon ALLSET prepaid plan that offers unlimited talk and text with 500MB of LTE data for $45. Verizon also offers month-to-month data buckets at the rate of 500MB for $5, 1GB for $10 and 3GB for $20.

Holy poop. 3GB of data for $20 is a heck of a deal. I'd definitely buy a 4G tablet for that deal.

I loaded up Android L preview on my Nexus 7 2013. It is really nice and I really love Material Design. The new notification shade is awesome.

Instead of being a storage area the stores notifications, it looks like a tab at the top when pulled down and the notifications are like little perforated business cards attached to it. You can also flick down on the top part and it expands to show quick controls for wifi, GPS, etc.

Quite a few apps crash, but that is expected.

This weekend I decided to see what the fuss was with Xposed and it appears to have triggered a kill switch in Good for Enterprise. There's an Xposed module that says it is supposed to disable the GFE check for root, but I've been rooted on both devices I've used with work email, and it has never been a problem until I installed Xposed this afternoon.

Overall, I think Xposed and the modules that it uses require too many permissions so I'm going to uninstall it anyway, but thought I'd share my experience to save others the trouble if they are GFE users.

I don't use my devices for work. If I did, I would probably not root and whatnot. Seems to be a risky proposition.

From the sounds of it, the upcoming version of Android is supposed to have separation of personal and business stuff. Not sure if that would have any affect on rooting the device though.

Easy for me to say from where I'm sitting though.
