    Okay, im really interested in the g1 but im not with tmobile (with cricket as of right now) so im confused on some things....

    *with a 2 year contract i get the phone for about $180 right?

    *on the contract are they making me use a certain plan or can i choose? (i saw one for about $30 that i wanna get, since i dnt really call until the weekends)

    *since i dnt talk alot, im a text maniac, how much is unlimited texting for individual plans?

    THANKS N ADVANCED

    I have the 39.99 plan for 600 anytime minutes and unlimited nights and weekends. Since i dont text very often i went with the 25.00 data plan. Unlimited everything but text. Only 400 text with that plan. You can get unlimited everything for 35.00 data plan but to have the G1 you have to have some sort of data plan.

    I'll second that, with other devices, internet is a feature, with this phone data connectivity is pretty much mandatory.

    Put it this way, I lost data for half a day and my contacts disappeared and the location information stopped working, affecting a couple different apps.

    With the cheapest MyFaves Plan (300 min)at $39.99 and the $25 data (400 text, unlimited data and T-Mo Hotspots) I'm paying $75 a month.

    Besides which with WiFi on all day, you'll need to charge your phone about halfway through the day. This phone doesn't have a great battery and WiFi is one of the things that drains it the fastest.
