I can't justify spending the extra 30 bucks monthly to use a smartphone. With a laptop and shitty phone, I can do almost everything I need to. I use my phone as a camera and mp3 player, but now cell carriers aren't offering many phones in between absolute basic and smartphone (monthly charges). I was thinking about getting an ipod touch to fill the void and help give me some new capabilities (like wifi). I just had a random thought, however. Phones like the HTC EVO have an 8mp camera, 32GB music space, and wifi.... can't I simply not activate it with phone service and use that as an ipod touch-type music/wifi device with a camera? If that works, I would think its better and cheaper than an ipod touch, and would be nice coupled with a crappy phone. Anyone know the answer?
haha this thread is turning into a phone war. but to respond to a few people's questions, I was thinking that I'd have my friend who is on sprint get it (I've seen it advertised as 199 with new plan or not) as an "upgrade", and i'd buy it from him. Compared to an 8gb ipod touch with no camera at the same price, that seems like a good option. Am I missing something? And my reasoning about not just getting it with service was that 30 bucks a month times 24 months (2 year contract) is 720 bucks... plus service and everything. That's simply outside my budget.
