iPhone? No Thanks!

July 3, 2008 at 11:38 pm | Posted in Macintosh | Leave a comment

As much as I love most things Apple, the iPhone is not one of them, since I am not a heavy cell phone user. The upcoming iPhone 3G is a worse deal than the previous model, with an increase in the unlimited data plan and a $5 surcharge for SMS.

My preferred cell phone is a Nokia with T-Mobile prepaid. I calculated usage for the last three months and my average monthly cost is $5 (50 minutes). I can double my talk time and include the cost of the iTouch software updates and it’s still less than the $70 a month AT&T wants, and my minutes don’t expire for a year.

Having a Nokia and an iTouch in my pocket leaves enough room to hold $65 in small bills. Every month.
