My 1st post was with my new el-cheapo non-smart phone. It is a LG Script which I got for $9.99 with a 2 year contract from a local carrier......which I have used previously with an older phone. I am now trying to learn text messaging, picture taking, and how to manuever on the net. Just getting on the forum and posting was little hard to figure out, with plenty of scrolling with just partial screens. Wouldn't want to do that very often.
Post #3 was an entirely different matter. The owner of my wife's company gave her an iPhone 3G recently, and that puppy is sweet. Easy to manuever, full screen views, and you can blow up sections of the screen that you want to view.
I agree that the $30 per month is hard to swallow, and my wife would probably not have the iPhone if her company didn't provide the phone and service. I have to pay an extra $10 per month for my unlimited data plan. The service for her phone is $30, as well as Blackberries and other smart phones, which I think includes unlimited data. So if you figure all of that in, it is only $20 over what I have to pay for unlimited data.
I also have to pay $10 for unlimited text and pictures. She has to pay $10 or so for a limited amount of text and pictures. And of course, the regular phone rates apply on both phones.
If she didn't have the iPhone, then I would seriously consider 1 for myself even at the extra $20 per month. I figure I can use hers most anytime that we are together.
BTW.....back on the pooter for this long post.
