I give in.
Cellular phones are okay. They’re not evil. Some people may use them for evil, but they’re not evil in and of themselves.
We would not have our new house if it weren’t for the cellular phone we’re borrowing. The cellular phone has allowed us to track down all sorts of things while on the road lately. I’ve been using it for about a month, and I admit it: I’m hooked.
So now I come to you — penitent — and asking your advice.
Which providers to you recommend? (I’ll tell you from the start that I despise US West, so don’t recommend Qwest — they’re not an option.) Jeff and Jeremy recommend Verizon. What other options are there?
What kind of calling plans are available? What about pay-as-you-go?
What should I look for in a phone? If I get a cell phone, I want to be able to check my e-mail from it. This is not optional. I’d also like for it to sync with existing computer-based address books. Is this possible?
Yes, I’ve turned to the dark side.
Help me by sharing your experiences, good and bad, with carriers, calling plans, and phones.
Just give me advice.
