Right now, I'm on a family plan (and not locked in to a contract) with T-Mobile. I want the Nexus One. I want to buy the Nexus One unlocked, pay $529, and buy a data plan from T-Mobile. (From what I understand from their website, I know that I could always ditch my family, become a "new customer," buy my own plan, and get the subsidized Nexus One for $179, but I'm not interested in doing that). Also, I have already seen this question
, but it seems to apply to only new customer information.
So, my questions are:
1. How much will the data plan cost? (googling just finds either cost for entirety of service OR people complaining about inability to get subsidized phone on family plan)
2. Right now I don't have a smart phone. Will adding the data plan on to the family's current plan auto-add any sort of time contract commitment?
3. Is it worth it? Assuming that my
only costs will be the $529 phone and the data plan, and that a family member pays for the rest of the family plan, is there any other smartphone option that would be better for me (in terms of super awesome phone & price)?
