For my Sprint EVO 4g I can tether, or WiFi my connection, for $30 a month.

However, I am using easytether, for free. And nothing OS rooted.

Access your phones SD card as if it is a windows file share. It's extremely rare that I'll plug my phone into a PC, usually only happens if I am somewhere where the wifi isn't on the same vlan as the computer I am using.

Simple wireless access to files. No gay itunes, no special apps of any kind, and 99% of all computers out there are already configured to work with it. Best of all is that all of your apps have full access to your SD card while your computer also does.

If my wife's garminfone had better hardware and software then that would be a great phone to have. The phone part itself along with the Android software sucks but it is a damn excellent GPS device.
except Garmin search blows...

Started to go this weekend and cancel our Tmobile contract and get my wife an iphone 4S but I think we'll wait till this summer and see if the iphone 5 makes it's appearance. I think I'll cancel my phone early for a $100 fee in a week or so and grab a Tracfone or Net 10 phone. No sense in me paying $75 a month for something I rarely use.

Apple really are having a giggle charging so much for 16gb/32gb extra storage on their devices, A 16gb microsd costs how much?

3 years ago it would have been $120 for 16gb ,Not in 2012.

Thank goodness for an 8GB iPhone 4 and Cloud access. You would never catch me paying extra just for more disk space.

If you had a real phone you could just buy a new microSD card to increase your storage.

There are some good cloud services for Android too.

I use Google Music for all my music. Such a nice service.
