"Misleading pricing - data plan $40/m required"3.5 starson by sebabb
Pros: style and function excellen
Cons: Misleading advertising of pricing
Summary: Great phone, great features, awesome style, rotten marketing and dishonest pricing.
Put together an itouch and a cell phone for less than the itouch, its too good to believe. And it is. I thought with wi-fi so prevelant I could get this phone and skip the outrageous data plans ($40/month) but ATT and Apple are automatically signing up buyers for a dataplan whether they want one or not. And where do you find this pricing requirement. Buried on att's web site at the very bottom of a "terms and conditions" statement. I guess there wasn't room next to the price tag. Great phone but won't be buying one unless I win the lotto.
