To iPhone or not to iPhone...

Our contract with Sprint is up and our phone are two years old. With family members getting new phones (my brother-in-law got an iPhone and my mom got the new Instinct) we are thinking about updating. Morgan has talked of nothing else for the last week!

We cannot both get to the AT&T store today so I have decided to see how the reviews come in today. Morgan actually asked me to post a survey on my blog. (But he will deny the idea if ever asked...silly but true!)

So, in our assessment of things Sprint's plan includes more minutes, text messages, and evenings starts at 7pm. AT&T would end up costing $15 a month once we add texting plans to get texting but has an International text messaging plan to cover the 3am messages from a certain cousin in England. (International texts at $0.25 each with Sprint) AT&T also has roll-over minutes, but evenings do not start until 9 pm. Although if we get rid of International calling on the cell phone we will not need as many minutes.

The bottom line is that Morgan loves the idea of the iPhone and is not sure if the Instinct is close enough for him. He has visions of being stuck out shopping and watching the Liverpool games on his phone. Add in the extra cost though and we are not sure what to do!

Please take the poll. Morgan will secretly thank you for it!

My thought is that with the added pluses for texts to england and overseas, ATT will be your best bet :)

I like my phone. Does everything and more of what I need. Of course, I don't call international or watch Liverpool... But ya'll love me anyway!!!

We've been very pleased with AT&T. I went way over my minutes when my mom was in the hospital. I called customer service to let them know why I went over, and they took $50 off my bill plus added 250 rollover minutes to my account!

I just got Matt to enter the world of the living, aka having a cell phone, about 3 months ago, so I may not have the best opinion for ya'll - but we do have AT&T, and we really enjoy it. You might check contract length time, and all those extra prices that they seem to add on after you get the phone. Happy Phone Hunting!
