I currently use Tmobile's $30 ppd plan for smartphones.
totally agree here. I used to think the FCC needed to step in and do something about the anti-competitive market of cell phones and service. However, I think advent of pre-paid has largely accomplished that. We're finally seeing cell phones that are competitively priced in pre-paid and off-contract avenues. As customers continue to migrate off traditional contract plans, I expect that to continue.
