Yeah I'd like get a nexus, but i want 64GB or a SD slot. The last Nexus battery life wasn't great. I here the new nexus phones will come with the latest android version, witch is supposed to be better with battery life. Apart from calling and texting (witch i do very little of), I use my phone for internet browsing and media player. So I'd like a lot of storage space and nice screen. Just have to wait and see what the specs are, hopefully one of nexus phones will have enough storage, battery life ,and screen to bezel ratio.

Is Vonage app mentioned earlier, easy to set up? Does it use the same number? If i could use that for outgoing calls and the 100minutes for incoming that would be more then enough minutes for me.

Yeah I think it'll be a lot better. Google did a quite good job with the Nexus 7 despite only having a few months to actually make the device, so I think it should be good.

My next Nexus must
a.) Have a removable battery; if not it better be something insane like 3000mAh or more.
b.) microSD slot OR 32GB/64GB of memory
c.) LTE
d.) wireless charging
e.) NFC (of course)

...screen I'm neither here nor there. I'm pretty happy with 4.3". Seems just "right". Needs to be iPS and at least 720P of course.

Vonage is relatively easy to set up. Used it in Japan because Skyped sucked over their 3G network. Very easy to set up, it texts you at your phone number, you have to enter a PIN I believe to confirm the number, so that Vonage can set it as the same number.

Currently on a sprint family plan but will be getting off that in a few months. I'm looking to buy a galaxy note 2 (off contract) when released, and I think I'm just going to buy the tmobile version and hop on this plan. Any hiccups I should expect? Looks like my area has really good service and low mins don't bother me..did the galaxy note 1 do well on this plan?

is there a time limit to port number from a postpaid to prepaid? I have iphone 4 activated w/prepaid sim (activated a month ago) that I use for some testing, but I will give it to my mother and need to transfer the old number to it. TIA

Anyone know if T-mobile "officially" allows tethering with this plan. And if not will they be able to tell if we are doing it anyways.

This plan does not include tethering. I think sometimes you can beat their ability to tell if you're creative, but I haven't researched it since the last time I needed to tether.

Well I just got the 30 dollar plan. We will see how this goes.. Is there a good VOIP app for the Nokia E6.. I dont mind paying like 5 bucks a month or something for it. I just want something integrated and better than skype.

That is the trade off with this plan... Tmobile expects to generate some revenue for overages in the minutes

It costs $15 extra unless you get creative and do some homework.

Most of us don't use Symbian anymore so I don't think you'll get any good advice. IF you have a phone running Android, iOS, or heck even Windows Phone I could give you some recommendations but I have no experience with Symbian.

You're probably the .1% that still uses it. Good luck though. Smilie
