I may get the Data plan later on in a few years (but I might not have the flip anymore
) All I use my phone is for (most used to least used): Texting, calling, music, picture taking, calendar/other tools. I really have no need for the data plan, I really don't even need to check e-mails on it (I have an iPod touch and most of my university campus is wireless so I can check it there or I have my laptop with me).
Thanks for all the answers though, sounds like a good phone despite some bad reviews on other sites. I think I'm going to like the 1or2 letters per key better than my current phone since it will be able to better predict the actual word I want instead of giving me a bunch of choices since there are 3 letters per key on normal phones. The scroll ball seems convenient too since constantly pressing down, down, down ,down to get to something took forever.
