If I really needed internet on the go THAT BADLY I would buy one of those Broadband internet sticks that plug into a USB port. I am not one of those people with their phone glued to their hand.
I can get by with a feature phone and a iPod. Could you if you had to? Plus when I am at home I use my home phone most of the time.

I Am Perfection
I just don't see the point of buying an iPhone when you have an iPod Touch, and an iPad when you can buy a laptop. A laptop you can do more things with. Imagine trying to type a 30 page paper on a iPad. I am a college student and 95% of the students I see on campus bring Laptops not iPads.
I consider iPad's and iPhones to be fads. Think about it Apple makes billions of dollars a year. They don't have to release a new product every year, but they do and you fools fall for it. It's like giving candy to a baby. What is the point of paying $400+ for a phone that you are going to get rid of 10 months later.

All the name calling is not necessary. When did your needs ever become a factor into why I dont want an iPhone. You don't pay anything for me or support me in any way. I said MY NEEDS NOT YOUR NEEDS SO THERE IS NO REASON TO SAY I LIVE IN COLLEGE-LAND AND CALL ME SELF-ABSORBED. I SAID FROM MY EXPERIENCE. I HATE ALL APPLE PRODUCTS THEY ARE OVERRATED AND OVERPRICED.
MY NEEDS ARE THE ONLY NEEDS THAT MATTER BECAUSE I AM PAYING FOR THE PHONE AND THE SERVICE.
My mother in law has a Virgin mobile phone. Their coverage here isn't very good in fact, she gets no signal at all at my house which is, according to the coverage map, in the middle of a Sprint coverage hole. She says at her own home in upstate New York, she barely gets any signal either. I don't think I'd get an IPhone through them with that sort of coverage.
The iPhone will ruin Sprint's network just the way it did AT&T and VZW's.

I charge forward recklessly, leaving chaos in my wake.
Boycott phones that lack microSD storage!
all he did was give explanations of why. no need for caps lock, now.
what reason would you NEED and Android for considering your supposedly minamilistic lifestyle? iPod touch and feature phone is all you need, right? you need Swype now?
you come off as troll like.
first you downplay the entirety of smartphones, deeming them unnecessary. you even patted yourself on the back about how YOU don't even need one and insinuated that others couldn't do that. now you want a Straight Talk Android, lol?
I got my current phone in december 5 1/2 months before net 10 and straight talk released that android that runs off verizon coverage.
ok, here you go. all the posts I'd need to see are in this thread.
certainly sounds like a smartphone would be a waste for this guy.If I really needed internet on the go THAT BADLY I would buy one of those Broadband internet sticks that plug into a USB port. I am not one of those people with their phone glued to their hand.
I really think this guy could do without a smartphone.I can get by with a feature phone and a iPod. Could you if you had to? Plus when I am at home I use my home phone most of the time.
so yeah, if you're in the market for getting a smartphone the indicative signs apparently flew over my head.
if you aren't going to use a smartphone for anything, why not further extend your frugality by refraining from spending that $100-$350 on something with a mortality rate of ten months? in reference to your topic, I don't think this will do anything to affect the major carriers.
VirginMobile is offering a phone many of the major carriers offer for up to five times the price on the cusp of its successors arrival. I don't think they have much to worry about, plus it's been said on here that most the major carriers subscribers are on family plans.
I don't imagine the Windstar pulling up and replacing everyone's phone at the VirginMobile store.
