@ nekolix:

Yes, but are you using a "smartphone"? On ATT I can get unlimited data for $10 a month because I have unlimited texting, but if I switch to a "smartphone" I have to by a minimum $30 plan regardless of what else I have.

Yes, he is quoting smartphone rates. ATTs rates only rate behind verizon when it comes to ridiculous fees for data and other features. Sprint on the other hand is a bargain, and unlike ATT and verizon they don't differentiate between a regular phone and a "smart" phone. Unlimited data is unlimited data no matter what device you are using. I have a sprint family plan that includes 2 lines, 1500 minutes, unlimited data, unlimited texting, sprint navigation, sprint tv, and all the other bells and whistles for $129 a month. That same plan with verizon would cost over $200 a month. Sprint used to have poor customer service back in the day, so I left them and went to verizon. But in the past 6 years sprints customer service has improved by leaps and bounds and verizons has went in the oposite direction. Although sprint can't beat verizons network, they pummel their rates into the ground. Anyone looking for a new phone should seriously consider sprint. Especially now that they have a full line of android phones as well as the palm pre and several blackberry selections. I may sound like a sprint sales person, but I'm just someone who has spent the last 3 months researching phones and phone companies just waiting for my verizon contract to end.

I thought the same thing walnut, then I finally "bit the bullet" and bought a crackberry, and it lives up to its name! I hated to think I was spending $75/month for data and voice, but now I don't know what I would do without it!

I travel a lot for work, and its nice being able to search for something on the run, restaurants, movie times, phone numbers, addresses.....I can't imagine not having one now!

The main thing holding me back from getting a smart phone is the price of reasonable data plans. I'm getting along fine without one right now, and so justifying doubling my phone bill is pretty tough. Unless Google can do something about that, I'll probably hold off.
