    I use an Android Optimus V with the Virgin Mobile $35/mo. Unlimited Data and Texting + 500 anytime minutes plan.

    I like Androids-- love mine, in fact-- but I'd recommend going with an iPhone because they're uncomplicated and don't require as much app-finding to get how you want them. Functional, if not fully customizable. I think Virgin does a pretty cheap iPhone-supporting plan as well, comparable to the one I use if not identical.

    Identical although the phone has the big price tag vs contract plans.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I just called verizon and the Note for me would be $260 or $270, and $75 per month, with limited texts, and $100 for unlimited.
    This is the phone I've been eyeing, as well. How much data do you get with that plan?

    Sprint is the only carrier that offers unlimited data and a Note, but an anonymous source tells me that Sprint service sucks.

    you are definitly crazy, $100 on a phone. That are $2,400 in 2yrs. If you'ld rather save that and buy some evotec shares from that, which are about to go $1 up per share, you'ld make...lemme calculate... $3,507 from it and after that you can exponentially maximize your money. Or save it with a nice interest of 2%. Or buy drugs with it !!

    But not a phone

    Uh, I don't know stuff like that.

    Like I said, it's $100 with unlimited, as far as I know. Verizon has the best service where I live.

    Listen to entropie
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    But then what do you do when you're bored in public? How do you access TypoC when you're not at home or near a laptop if you have one?

    I just played around with someone else's Smart Phone and thought it was the coolest thing in the world, which is the other thing that inspired this thread. But yeah, $100 for a phone is superficially a bit too high (I neither like talking to people nor texting), which is why I'm continuously on the fence about it.

    I am not anti smartphones, those things are really cool. In fact ten years ago I used WAP, an internet gateway, to access ICQ via my Nokia 8010 and all people told me I am crazy. I am just against paying too much for that phone. They are a huge rip-off and drive people into debt traps.

    But I have done some research and it seems that data plans for smartphones seem to be incredibly expensive in the States. At my place all the data plans are flatrates and when your data amount expires only the connection speed is throttled (and the cheapest cost you like $2 a month).

    I've found a page that could help you: http://blog.wapreview.com/4872/

    I have no understanding of the US providers :/.

    Here's my smartphone model: http://www.amazon.com/HTC-Unlocked-A...s=htc+desire+Z

    Perfect for typoC browsing cause it has a keyboard. It's due to that rather thick, so if you dont like the keyboard look for the Desire Z. They are solid models and dropped in price only 40% in 2 years, which is slow in the electronic world. You can acess and download everything from the android market. The android OS is older on these models but you wont ever have a problem with apps and the OS version. Addiotionally its unlocked, so you can jailbreak it later. That means you can login as root in the android OS and do some nasty stuff. Thats cool if you want to control your toaster via phone

    It's true that phone/data plans are way too expensive. I have discounts on my service and its stil $75 a month. I have the lowest minutes plan too.
