I have a blackberry and I really just use it as a glorified computer. I pay $60 a month and get unlimited e-mail, BBM, text, social networking, a lot of data (I don’t remember how much but I’ve barely ever even used 1/4 of my data). I really just use it for Facebook and e-mail, so technically I don’t need a smartphone, but now that I’ve had one and have the convenience of checking e-mail and facebook everywhere I really like it. I just wished I didn’t have to spend so much a month.

I have an iPhone and I love it. My plan is around $75 a month and I have unlimited texting and data. I don’t have unlimited minutes though, I have 450 minutes a month, but my plan includes free, unlimited mobile to mobile, which is what I use most. 

If you want a phone that’s just cheaper in the long run, there are plenty of other smartphones that cost less than the iPhone. I had an andriod before my iPhone and I liked it too.

Smartphone!!! I’ve been on smart phones before the iPhone came out and was an early user of the original iPhone and I can NOT imagine not using one!! I never had to use a GPS plus I’ve found these great restaurants when I travel by using the Yelp App… Facetime is AWESOME!!! Maps (was great until AAPL decided to mess with it!)

Smartphone! I got a Blackberry in 2006, kept getting new ones until last May when I finally jumped to iPhone. Regardless of device, I can’t imagine NOT having a smartphone now!

I have the Samsung Galaxy S3. I just picked it up today and I am absolutely in LOVE with it. I live in Canada, so what I pay per month really wouldn’t help; our plans here are ridiculous and expensive. When I see the American commercials on TV I get sad. 😛

Fiance and I are with Ghettro… ahem… Metro PCS on a family plan and pay $120. WE LOVE IT!! Our phone gets us everything, I get hopelessly lost so its my GPS and we dont have to pay for internet because our phone is a hotspot (free). Oh and no contracts 🙂 plus interenet on the phone itself is pretty amazing

EDIT- Both Fiance and I have unlimited EVERYTHING
