I'm currently with AT&T and I had been thinking about getting an iPhone. Really, all I've been wanting was something to hold me out the till Android powered phones come out at the end of 2008 and beginning of 2009, I was thinking the iPhone might work for it. I love the interface and the internet feature, but there were some things holding me back. I'm a power user and I really don't like a lot of the features that have been left out. Also, I've hated the lack of a SDK. Now, that may be coming, but I'm willing to bet it too will be very restricted and require apple's okay to install on the iPhone (please correct me if you've heard different) which will prevent a lot of very useful freeware apps made by individuals. Now, I found out about Sprint's SERO plans. These plans are absolutly amazing. Basically this plan gives 500 minutes (N&W starting at 7 and mobile to mobile), unlimited internet through EV-DO, and unlimited Text messages. All of this for only 30 dollars a month. Half the price of the iPhone plan. Once I had decided to get Sprint's sero plan, I began looking at phones. I decided on the HTC Mogul which is very similar to my current Cingular 8125. Now "Windows Mobile is far behind the iPhone" you say. Well, yes in some ways they are. However, the feature set really far surpases the current iPhone. The two areas where the iPhone wins are the internet experience and the interface. However, the new skyfire browser when it comes out shortly will remedy that. Also, the internet speeds of EV-DO kick the crap out of EDGE. Plus, the mogul will shortly get an update to rev A which will boost the speeds even more (4G). So, here's my comparison. AT&T Plan Minutes: 450 Text: 200 Data: Unlimited Speed: Edge (slow to moderate) N&W: Starts at 9 Rollover: yes Sprint Plan Minutes: 500 Text: Unlimited Data: Unlimited Speed: EV-DO (Fast) N&W: starts at 7 Rollover: No winner: Sprint due to EV-DO speed and unlimited text iPhone Interface: Wonderful Internet: Wonderful Feature Set: Moderate (being updated slowly) SDK: Coming (probably limited) Screen Resolution: 480x320 Mogul: Windows Mobile Profesional Interface: Moderate (needs updating) Internet: Very Good when Skyfire comes out (has flash) Feature set: Very Good (lots of programs for add-ons) SDK: Well Established, lots of programs (many free) Screen Resolution: 320x240 (hurts internet) Winner: I'll give the win to the iPhone, but for me the mogul is probably the winner due to the feature set and internet about to match the iPhone. Price Mothly: -AT&T: 60 -Sprint: 30 Phone: -iPhone: 400 -Mogul: 200 Total cost over 2-yr contract: -iPhone: 1840 -Mogul: 920 Winner: Easily the Sprint with Mogul plan So overall (at least for me) the sprint plan meets or exceeds many of the iPhone options while coming in at half the cost. Plus, I can get an Android phone in a year with sprint (just less of a rebate). So, I ordered it Friday and will be recieving it shortly. Anyway, thought you guys might be interested.
