Re: iphone worth buyin?

i was about to get one, just had gotten rid of my nextel, and was actually talked out of it due to having to pay additional charges not only for internet and texting but also able to use all of the data plans and use the phone to its full potential. After trying a 30 day trial with att i realized the service was mediocre and text messages weren't all that great either. I decided to go with the Verizon Dare which has been awesome for me so far. Verizon to verizon calls are free, 450 minutes a month and internet and all that jazz for 79 a month....considering i was paying that for nextel without all the bells and whistles ....You can always try the plan that you would like through ATT and the phone but if you don't like the service after a month you can cancel it, but the only catch is I don't believe you can get refunded for the 300 bones you have to pay for the iphone

Re: iphone worth buyin?

I got the iphone 3g, its pretty tight compared to my old POS nextel. I get 450 minutes with rollover, nights and weekends, unlimited text, unlimited data, calls to att cells are free. I pay about $80 a month for all that. It seems worth it to me

Re: iphone worth buyin?

Only issue I didn't like was iphone you can't send pics to MMS meaning you can only email pictures to people.. The blackberry storm is promising looking. More business oriented with sleek looks and touch screen. Iphone has lots of little aps to keep u occupied when you're bored but I'm sure the same would probably come out for the storm..

yeah i just haven't looked into it.. I love my curve i just can't stand sprint cause they don't have mms on the phone..Only reason i have sprint is cause I got a hook up and i'm paying 1/2 of what I used to pay.. I might have to just go back to paying normal for the storm lol. You got verizon scott?

yeah I got a buddy that sells phones so added a line under his employee deal so I get 1500mins + unlim data&text and insurance for for $58.. With Tmob i was paying like $108 but I'm probably going to drop the mins down to 500 and that'll only be like $30ish That storm is pretty enticing though

But I'm hearing some rumors about some $70 data plan for the blackberry.. I sure hope that's not true because that's outrageous
