When you have a cell phone people expect you to answer it or call right back. I like the option of being unavailable. I will get one. Maybe soon. I put everything off and hate making decisions. Blackberry or Iphone. Android ? G3, G4 ? This package or that one. Did I say i hate decisions ??
If you have a Cricket store near you they are just about to go 4G in July. You can buy ALMOST any phone and not from them either but from anywhere (try Craigslist) and have it hooked up through Simple Mobile for $40 a month, unlimited everything. Now that price of for 3g speed and can get a 3g phone nowdays for pennies. For $60 a month you can have the 4G service to match the 4G phone f you so choose to go that route.
I bought a 3G Android for $149.00 last year from Cricket and paid $63 a month unlimited through Cricket service. I'm going to be buying a Samsung Galaxy II from Craigslist and going up to 4G.
3G is well within the means of my needs and it is very fast but I want to be up to date.
Once you get one of these phones, that's it, you'll never need a separate gps or pay for internet again. You can tether your phone to your computer or use it as a WiFi hot spot and use your phone as internet for whichever computer you are next to. The computer will have the same speed as your phone, which is pretty damn fast.
I'd strongly recommend you call Cricket and ask about all of your options as far as phones with SIM cards that can be used with which provider and whatnot. The Cricket phone I bought has no SIM card thus can only be used with Cricket service. Some phones can be "flashed" from their maker and intended service provider over to others, switched.
