I would like to stay in the $150 range, and I am on Cingular. I have the BIS tagged on to a added friends and family plan. I bought the 7280 out right, and I am not under contract. My service is month to month.
I cannot justify the expense of the higher end phones right now.
Thank you one and all for your feedback. This has helped very much. I believe I will go with the 7290. It appears to fit my needs after reading the responses here. If anyone has more comments please feel free to keep them coming.
