    Bro, I got the low rent Metro Pcs service, the package i bought came w/ 2 phones w/cameras & unlimited everything including Internet for less then $100.00 a month. The service is in the business name and shows up on caller id's as Lawn Sharks.. It works and it's cheap!

    I get the cheapest phone I can get to meet my needs as I go through them every 6 month's or so. Between blowing, answering the phone while hands are covered in mud and the dirt that accumulates in my pocket's, they get trashed! I go through credit cards really fast as well as the dust get's in my wallet relly bad and wears the magnetic strip off the back.

    I just picked up an iphone yesterday. I like the visual voicemail. You can pick which voicemail you want to listen to without going through them all.

    I have sprint/nextel. I had t-mobile but had to many issues with poor service. I have the Motorola i-510. Its not fancy by any means but it takes a beating. It's been dropped, run over by the truck a few times and all that and is still doing ok. Its a little over 15 monthes old. It will be replaced soon but I got my use out of it.
    The previous phones I had from t-mobile would hardly last 8-10 monthes. I don't abuse the phone but its on my belt and stuff happens. Thats one reason I switched to nextel was due to the heavier duty phones. Plus, the walkie talkie is great IMO.

    Yea I looked at the iphone and I wanted to hate it but it kinda lives up to the hype.
