The Cliq came out yesterday and Droid will be later this week, so since I want - nay, need - a new phone I was doing some price comparing. Things I need in the phone: Unlimited data Some messages (< 200) Some voice minutes (< 100) Having the explicit ability to tether the phone would be nice, too. So based on that, the Droid plan with Verizon rounded out about $100, whereas the Cliq was less than $70 - monthly cost assuming 2 year plan, not including phone. That being said, Droid seems like a better phone (newer software, bigger screen, etc), so I'd like that if I can afford it. Perhaps people can help me point out the finer points of creating a lower-cost plan? I checked out billshrink.com and they showed a Blackberry-centric plan (unlimited data, maybe msgs) that had voice calls as an extra, instead of a set rate.
