I plan on using my phone in VOIP mode as often as possible. Since I use my phone most often at home, I'm hoping I'll be able to use far fewer minutes per month than normal. That's when the pay-as-you-go SIM plan starts to really pay off - I don't have to pay for an artificial minimum of minutes that I won't use. When I run out of minutes, I just buy more. If I only talk on VOIP during the month, that's zero cost.
Also, I hear that AT&T is charging 10$ more per month for iphones over their normal plan fees, and even more if you are a business user. So for a two year contract thats 240$. And if you stay with AT&T after that, you keep paying that same premium on into the future too. If you're like me and you keep your smartphones for 4+ years, then that would be more like 480$ over the 199 initial outlay. _______________________________________________ Openmoko community mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.openmoko.org/mailman/listinfo/community
