Howdy folks, I'm getting pulled by the smart phone sirens. I am still trying to figure out how my life will be better if I owned any smart phone. I need to make voice calls from some pretty remote places. Right now I have an antenna amp in my vehicle and I can tether, if I need to, with my laptop or notebooks. The cost of a full on data plan seems excessive to me (Verizon customer). I wish there was a way to just get my hands on an Android phone to play with for a couple of months, without being married to a new 2 year plan and a monster ETF. It's the openness of the Android platform that attracts me. I'm hoping I can eventually figure things out by lurking here.
