I need to replace my Treo 755p. Yes its super old, but it has always just worked. As I've looked for replacements, I've become frustrated by the requirement of every cell carrier to upgrade to expensive data plans to get a smart phone. I currently pay $45 for 1500 min, unlimited data and email, and 200 texts. If I get an android phone or iPhone, I'm looking at an extra $60/month, almost $720 dollars a year extra. That is the price of an iPad. So my question is this: Could an iPad and a basic cell phone be a legitimate replacement for a smart phone? Besides the obvious size issue with the iPad, my main concern is being able to get emails on the road. I'm often in rural areas without a Wi-Fi access spot, so I liked that I can access cell data as needed without a contract. Big screen and added capabilities are a plus AND I could maybe leave the heavier laptop at home. However, no email or web on the phone if I'm just headed out locally. I'm struggling to evaluate this and wanted to get anyone else's thoughts. Anyone tried going this route?
