What alternative to the iphone?
On the last day of September, my contract with Sprint expired. I'm now looking to move on with a new phone. I'm seriously considering an iPhone.
Right now I have an iPod Touch (1st gen) with the 2.1 software. I'm pretty aware of the iphone capabilities and I totally dig all the available applications. If I get an iPhone 3G, I WILL jailbreak it to extend its functionality further.
So my question is? What other phones should I consider?
1. must be able to use AIM, Gtalk, MicrosoftIM,
2. would like Exchange access, but not required.
3. SMS not needed
5. lots of available apps (free or cheap)
6. usable overseas (for my trips to India and Japan)
7. Skype access over wifi.
I get a 27% discount on rate plans from ATT. I get a 25% discount on rate plans with Sprint. My company will pay the first $75 of my cell phone bill. If I have an iPhone with the 900 minute plan (unlimited data) I get charged about $69.00 (before taxes) which is covered by the company.
