Unless the monthly service is cut in half, why would you get this phone? Processor is shite, and there are other models that trump it. If it was 10 a month or 15, that's one thing...but it will be the 30 a month. Maybe that will change if VZW offers lower data plan options.

Mostly because it seems this phone will probably sell for less than $100 after rebate. Its selling feature is that its entry level. A big thing for many people I know coming from feature phones is that the price for the device itself is too much. $199 is alot of money for a droid X or 2. These people will also barely use half of the phones acutal abilities. Its like telling someone that uses a computer for email and web browsing to go buy a $2000 Alienware. People want the smart phone experience of being able to use the web... but thats it. And there will be a $15 plan if you have been paying attention.

why downgrade? Dont do your research and get a better phone. My wife got the samsung fascinate for free at best buy a couple of fridays ago and the next friday the htc incredible was for free at best buy.

Well, there are a number of different reasons! They form-factor, Touchscreen, Capabilities, its Eco-freindly (Unless if you want to be a pollutant and buy other phones), the camera, and its really cheap and its pre-paid!

I don't know why this phone is doing better than the Kins Microsoft made earlier in the year. Both are cheaply-made, slow as hell, and require $30 of internet. "This phone is great for kids," I hear a lot of people say. Well who in their right mind is paying $30 extra a month for their 14-year-old to have full unmonitored internet access?? This phone needs to crawl back out of the hole it came from
