I had moved out of the USA and had switched my plan to a prepaid plan so I wouldn't lose my phone #. Now I am back home and want to start up a contract again, and probably upgrade to a Moto Defy.
My questions are:
it looks like the $50 monthly plan is a better deal than if I were to start a comparable 2-year contract (~$70/month). Am I misreading the T-Mobile site? If the month to month plan is in fact a better deal, wouldn't it make sense to buy a Moto Defy off ebay? And would I need an unlocked phone? I thought a tmobile rep told me that a T-mobile branded defy would only work for annual contract plans.
I also was inquiring about wifi calling at home, and was told that's only available to annual customers w/ android 2.2 phones. The same rep told me there are no additional charges either. Is that true? I thought I had bee n reading that one needs to pay extra for the wifi calling feature.
If I were to buy an unlocked Moto Defy how would I update it (as android updates are released?) I assume it would not receive tmobile updates automatically?
I apologize if these are dumb questions, but I am new to smartphones and android and living in Germany the past year has increased my ignorance on the subject.
