whats silly, is that you people still use a cell phone for crap like this .
a cell phone is not for the Internet.
stop using this crap.
The internet isnt for downloading stuff, its for BBS and discussions.
Technology evolves - people evolve. 10 years ago a cell phone couldnt play movies, games, or anything...and now it can. If I'm visiting another state or country, and can get online with my cell phone/no hotel internet... why not?
cell phones are not and never were for games, movies or other.
they are for making emergency calls if your are not at home. period. There is no need for it more than that
if you want somethig else create a seperate machine.
wait, they already have those, its called a COMPUTER. so make one small enough to carry around with you to do all those cool things and more just like you would on a real PC.
not cheap crap integrated into your phone while the companies you choose charge you out the ass for bullshit.
you have to admit, it has and probably always will be just a merchandising scam, and most of you all just bought right into it.
anyway yes, Internet could be useful, so use a laptop then. If you can walk down a street holding a blackberry in your hand like a frgging compass walking around then im sure you could carry a laptop in a case on your shoulder. Maybe most likely pay less or nothing and use a full computer system to do anything you please in the fullest capabilities you should choose.
and thats fine that using the phone for BBS/discussions maybe. but that counts as DATA use ? doesnt sound important enough to me i guess.
seriously, think about what you pay so much for. Is it really worth it ................ if for you, how many people actually need to do that.
i could go on more but i think you see my point ,
take care =)
