After over three years with Sprint PCS I today ordered a Sony Ericsson
T610 and T-Mobile 600-minute, unlimited-nights plan from Amazon.com.
I am making the move because of two reasons: 1) Bluetooth and 2) free
Internet access over GPRS (I think I can live without access to the
T-Zones WAP deck). Over the holidays I will be staying with family in
a location without a computer, and look forward to being able to
access the Web with the phone and my Bluetooth-enabled Sony Clié UXhostinghosting
PDA. If I find the need for access to SSH, FTP, or other ports
compelling, I'll go ahead and order the $20 T-Mobile Internet
I am *not* making the move because of unhappiness with Sprint PCS's
prices. Though $40 for 600/unlimited minutes, free Internet, and
unlimited nights/weekends is better than the $55 I currently pay for
hostinghosting0/3000 minutes without a contract, I am sure I could find a current
Sprint PCS that, except the network access, more or less compares. And
my ancient Sanyo 4hostinghosting0 has served me well.
But with no signs Sprint PCS will ever offer the T608 or any other
Bluetooth-enabled phone, and the much higher prices (and, admittedly,
throughput) for PCS Vision versus what T-Mobile will charge, I feel
like I had no choice.
I am on the verge of doing the exact same thing for the same reasons.
Unfortunately, I will have to fork over two termination fees, but I
will break about even with the Amazon deal.
I would love to hear some input on T-Mobile service in the Ga-FL
region (especially Savannah).
