I want to start off by apologizing if I've put this in the wrong thread... I'm new here .
I've become pretty frustrated with the current business model AT&T has set up with their data plan and wifi. If I have a data plan...why would I use wifi (for the most part)?. I'm not looking to spend (nor can I afford) the money AT&T requires for most phones which can check email...which is all I want to do... not look at youtube, tweet, facebook, etc... just email. Most of the time however, I'm not in a position where I can get to a computer. I know there are phones which have cheaper $10/mo data plans, but frankly my budget is tight enough as it is.
I was wondering if there was a way to find out if some of the phones that are marketed as non-smart phones (eg htc freestyle) actually do have wifi capability which is just restricted at the request of AT&T? If so, is there a way to jailbreak this?
Any help or advice on this would be super helpful. This is no longer an inconvenience but becoming detrimental to my work efficiency.
Thanks in advance,
