Skip the two-year deal and renew for a year instead and get a Curve. You will pay a measly extra $50 for the Curve on a one-year deal -- $199 instead of $149 and it might be even less than $199 if you delay a month or so until the new iPhone comes out and causes ripples across the cell phone replacement market. Ten months into the new one-year deal when 3G is more firmly entrenched you can get a 3G phone with a maximum discount -- perhaps the 9000 -- and not pay a fortune for it like you will if you are first in line when it comes out. And your Curve will still have some value on Ebay. How's that for a plan? It's also what I'm going to do as my contract has also expired.
