I didnt know they still do plans with no contracts, im not gonna go search but I highly doubt it.




If you are smart, when renewal time comes around you get in on an employee pricing plan and get that same service for 30 a month.
totally have a no-contract plan. you just dont get a free phone or other crap you dont need.

the reason I use the tethering is because sometimes I'm places without internet access but still have cell phone access. and I dont want to pay for a real service.

are you an employee?

You can get the employee discount through anyone who works here.

You just talked me out of a iphone, thanks!
You like the Treo? Mine's been an enormous headache, speaker goes out, touchpad intermittently goes out, can't answer incoming calls, etc. Did I just get a bad apple?

I've had my treo650 for 2.5 years. I'm a heavy user, and other than the screen breaking once, it's been fine. The screen failure was my fault--I knocked it off the kitchen counter and it fractured when it hit the tile. Replacement screen was a PITA to deal with, but was done at a local service center while I waited for $40.

I have friends with the iphone. While it is a slick interface, it didn't offer anything extra that was real. It has the pinch-zoom and the voicemail you can listen to in any order. BFD
I have open source, expansion, user replaceable battery, and a videocam.

Thats pretty cool, didnt know they did no contract.

I am not an employee, but there are ways to do it even if you dont know anyone who works there. Just need the right information

My brother-in-law and I went to a bar instead of buying pizza while my sister sat at home last weekend. She was pissed to say the least and hurled her iphone at her husband a lot harder than I would've thought she was capable of, bouncing it off of his chest before falling to the floor. It suffered zero damage.
