Through work, I got a Samsung BlackJack II. AT&T isn't too bad, but I do miss my kick ass HTC Touch I had with Alltel...and Alltel had the best coverage period! But when work pays for everything, I guess I have no room to complain...

I have Centennial Wireless, recently dropped to a 600 minute plan, because all incoming calls are free and my night and weekend minutes start at 5 PM. This includes a data plan and, unlimited incoming text are free, plus call features like call id, call waiting, conference calls, voice mail etc. This plan is regional (La, Tex, Ark, Miss and Okla) as I rarely travel outside of a 5 state area. When I do the day before I leave I call and add roam protector which basically gives me free roaming outside my calling area for a flat $3.99 per month. I do pay $4.95 per month which gives me unlimited outgoing text messaging and pixture messaging. Price $55.95 per month. I have simply found no other cellular company that can beat it. NONE! The coverage in the rual areas where I work and live, just can't be touched by the big boys.

What do you currently have?
My only cell phone (Verizon) is a free company provided one. It is just a basic LG device that I receive company text alert messages from (Backups done, Store email down etc.). I get 1300 minutes a month. It is a perk I do not take for granted as I can use it for personal calls if I do not over do it. Saving $60 plus dollars a month is great! I make sure to answer company calls made to me as much as possible.

Currently I have an iPhone 3G with AT&T, though since I just got a Slacker G2, my use of the iPhone as a music player will be diminishing significantly. But I've still got it loaded with games and other apps. :)

I have Verizon -- yes, they disable many features, but the coverage in my area is great. I have the LG Dare....I really like it...very fast internet access (faster than my wife's 2g iPhone...ATT's 3g blows...should get better)...

I've always scratched my head about the Canadian mobile (and landline telephone) rates. They seem so much higher than in the US. I guess we Americans have all gotten spoiled with our "free nights and weekends" and unlimited phone plans.

I remember when $0.05/minute for long distance was a big deal...or when you actually waited until after 5:00 PM or 9:00 PM to make phone calls because the phone company would give you a discount.

I have the Motorolz RAZR V3m with a Verizon plan. I've had this plan for so long, I don't remember all the details, but I think it is 1000 anytime minutes plus unlimited night and weekend minutes. I also have unlimited in messaging.

I would like to upgrade to a Blackberry soon.

Verizon Wireless customer for 15 years. Currently using the LG Dare (personal) and Blackberry 8330 (work) on same plan. Best service provider for my area compared to Sprint or AT&T.

Original Motorola Q, with Verizon. Looking to upgrade soon to either a Q9C or BB Storm. Depends on pricing.

Sprint PCS. Sanyo Katana II. 400 minutes a month, N&W start at 7pm, no data or text. All for $45.00.

I have a mobile broadband card (Franklin Wireless U680) from Sprint that I use for my laptop. 5GB data limit, 59.99 month for nationwide access. This thing gets better reception than my phone does, and I live in the middle of nowhere.

I got a Palm Centro with Verizon service a few months ago. I had a Palm Treo 650, and the Centro is basically the same, but smaller and uses the higher speed web connection.

I can watch my home TV on the Centro via a Slingbox hooked up at home. This comes in handy on Sunday afternoons in order to keep up with the NY Giants when you have to be away from your TV.

I have a Nokia N75 on AT&T.

It's a great phone and the service has always been the best. I have a grandfathered message and data plan which gives me unlimited internet which is sweet because I have a Slingbox player on the phone and can check in on my Tivo back at home when my commute gets too much.

I have a cell phone. It's black. It dosen't have a name.

It dosen't have a camera, mp3 player, or web. It has a big fat keypad, a speaker and a microphone.

I have Alltel because I want to use my black cell phone wherever I go.
