sounds like an awesome phone, nonetheless!
jakes has GPS & it's always re-routing cause he ignores it or cannot hear it (it won't stick to the glass.)

I'm not in to all the bells-n-whistles with phones.

I use mine only for emergencies and important phone calls.

I have just a plain ol' Samsung, through T-Mobile.

I can call my family back in NY, free of charge...that's all I need.

We're essentially Verizon country down here, lousy reception with AT&T. But again, it's the proprietary thing I have issue with. It's like saying if you buy a Dell, you have to use Windstream internet. I just don't like being told who I have to use as a provider to use a certain anything. Ya know?

I have no problem with the proprietary thing. As a consumer I can choose to buy or not buy. If I don't like the provider that goes along with the phone then I don't buy the phone.

I have issue with any proprietary items. When a CD is only sold by one store, I won't buy it. In our town we can't have a Home Depot because Lowe's is headquartered here, I drive to the next town over and shop at HD just because I don't like that type of thing.

Me, I have a BlackBerry, not because I want it, but because my old employer made me and I can't afford to get a different phone yet.
