    Honestly, I rarely ever use EDGE. Since most of my time is spent at work,school, or at home, I usually am hooked to wifi. Is there a way to cancel my edge service?

    If you have done it, do you miss it? I'm just trying to figure if its worth the 20 bucks...:confused:

    Won't you also lose visual voice mail? Something to consider...

    Hmmm... Yea, visual voicemail is great. I don't know, it might be a tough decision.

    This is an interesting dilemma. For me it is the same question as "should I buy an iPhone or an iPod Touch?"

    One of the major deciding factors in my case was Edge. I want to be able to access the web anywhere I have Edge connectivity. This kind of access puts the iPhone in a different league. Without Edge you might as well sell it and get an iPod touch, it will be a lot less hassle.

    ^maybe I didn't mention, I've had the iPhone
    for a couple months. I love everything about it. I always answer
    my phone so I rarly have a voicemail. Edge just isn't very good unless you running a mobile version of a website. It does come in handy with google.maps etc...

    I'll probably wait til after the update... The gps might be worth having!:D

    Can you cancel edge? I thought that was part of the plan / contract.

    I thought that At&t said that you could remove it and save 20$

    I think text messaging is included with your data plan, though...

    Nope. Texting is part of the calling plan.

    Actually texting is part of the data plan:

    See AT&T's Apple iPhone Activation Page/Tab.
