Rather than pay AT&T 75 a month for horrible cell coverage, I've gone with Virgin Mobile for 25 a month. Unlimited data, SMS, text, etc and 300 minutes. While I'll be the first to acknowledge that the phone is no where near as good as the iPhone, it was 70 dollars and provides sufficient email, IM, and web access. The coverage is better in San Francisco, and more than anything I simply can't justify 600 dollars extra per year for a slick interface that doesn't allow me to get on the web or make phone calls reliably. My contract is up and I don't plan on signing another one until the data rates from the major carriers come way down. If VM comes out with an Android or iPhone (fat chance in the US) I'll buy one again, but until then... it will be a fat iPod touch. I'm actually impressed with what this phone does for 70 dollars and if I get sick of it, scratch it, or a better phone comes out it won't be any great loss. BEST OF LUCK TO ALL OF YOU, AND MAY THE REIGN OF TERROR KNOWN AS AT&T BE CHALLENGED SOON!
