On Star phone and Verizon
I just read a thread that was dissing the useability and cost of the On Star phone, and it occurred to me that the following info might be valuble and not widely known.
This works if you use Verizon as a cell phone provider. Verizon has an agreement with OnStar that lets you add your car as a second line for $10.00/month.
You will share minutes and cost with your main cell phone at your normal plan rates.
I have had this set up for over a year and it is extremely cost effective as compared to inflated On Star rates.
Hope this is usefull to someone.
