    I'm thinking about getting a cell phone. I've always had an aversion to them for some reason, but I think I'm finally coming around. I just don't know what to get, in both a phone and a service.

    In a phone I'd like something that can either communicate with my Palm, or replace it. Handspring's Treo would seem to fit the bill, but there's a few things that make it unattractive to me (can't upgrade the OS, and the wireless web being dial-up). That's probably the best of the Palm-based phones, so I'm thinking of a phone that can sync with my Palm. Are there any that do that over infra-red, or do I have to use the computer as an intermediary? Things like games, ringtones, colors, and the like really don't matter to me. Something without exposed button's would be nice, because I'm pretty rough on things.

    I've got no ideas at all about service plans, other than I don't want to shell out $50 a month. Which carrier have y'all had good experiences with?

    cell phones are electronic leashes. i don't want one.

    either way, i think what you're lookin for could put you into the 40 dollar range per month. i'm just educated guessing though.

    hey, i forgot to ask if 40 a month was okay...
    depends on what how often you would use it.

    Yeah, the whole thing about always being reachable or always being able to call is what bugs me. $40 is fine. I'm giving up the cigs and need something to spend the money on.

    I wouldnt have one if it wasnt needed for work. I always switch mine off at 5 PM religiously unless I'm formally 'on call'. Solves that problem

    i'm on the phone 8 hours a day for work, last thing i want is to be pestered on a cell phone. i finally broke down and got one, but i went the prepaid route. i use AT&T, got a $25 prepaid card that's good for 45 days, and when i get a new one, the old minutes carry over. got voice mail on it, too. this way i don't get any additional monthly bills, and if i need it in an emergency, i have it. no Net access, no Palm hookup, just an extra line if i need it.
