Subsidize personal smartphones for a dual business use

Community Member kudos icon + Community member

Instead of purchasing Smartphone’s/data plans for those of us who travel it would be cheaper for the government to pay a portion of our bill and set up an alternate number (via google voice, skype, etc.) that can be used to answer business calls. We can also use our existing data plans for business work if the need arises. I have a blackberry and use the data plan RARELY (meaning 1or 2 times a year), yet they pay for it every month. Besides, the technology on the BB is outdated, and it's easier for me to use my private phone to look up hotels, restaurants, view docs, etc.

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
