The one area I'm hoping the iPhone forces change is with expensive dataplans. I'm a Verizon customer and spending an additional $45 a month on top of a 900 minute plan will never stop stinging, no matter how great the service. Now, I use my phone for business and personal, so I can justify the cost. I would think a lot of regular consumers who were thinking of getting a smartphone but stayed away due to the high cost of most data plans will try out an iPhone. If that's the case, I have to believe other carriers/phones are going to try and follow suit. Or at least I hope so.
I love my BlackBerry and would never want to switch, but I'm not gonna lie - if VZW offered a smartphone with data included with voice minutes, I don't know that PUSH is worth $45 extra a month.

Vorizen an sprint us EV-d0 well no it uses revisionA sprimt is worimg on equiping there entire network with WI-max which blows every thing out of the watter at a staggering 100mbps.it a 4g format. Were as hsdpa wich is common plac in erope ant the uk uses HSDPA wich trans fers at 1.8mbps. We so need that over here TMO uss needs to match it eropean brother acorss the pond with the same name btw HSDPA is 3.5g
TMO aparently will be the last to get 3G over here and i dont know why more people dont get upset about that. I mean I'm wanting HSDPA asap for me on AT&T but it seems it will be another year. WI-max will be great if SPrint gets that done, their plan is set to get 100 million by end of next year.
