Of all the non-data plan free phones I could have gotten with my cellphone plan renewal, this was the best one. Rather, in smart phones there were only like 2 choices, and the other one was underspec even compared to this one, which is already pretty slow x_X I wish I could have gotten the Galaxy Nexus :< I asked! they said nooope + it's discontinued.
Get in bed nao! 101~103 is pretty bad.
Sucks. Well, I don't have a phone so I don't have to worry about this. It does make me a bit sad that I only have an iPod since I can't do much with it, and I can always tether a phone's connection when necessary.
That and there are also hotspots you're allowed to make a 1-time payment for the unit and then use it whenever you want. It's a pay-as-you-go styled charging.
I'M FINE! DON'T WORRY ABOUT ME!
