Cell phone confusion: I need a good family plan with support for the Gmail java app.
Been researching new phones/plans and I'm terminally confused. Here's what I'd like:
- a family plan with 2 lines and middling minutes
- a camera phone that takes ok pictures and will let me send to flickr
- a plan & phone that can handle the Gmail java app
I've been looking at the cell phone finder thingy
to narrow down plans, and any of the ~$59 family plans seem ok. Mrs. Muckster seems to be especially fond of the RAZR. So far, so good.
What's confusing the hell out of me is Gmail. Sounds like most phones (with a data plan?) can get to m.gmail.com, but apparently, the java application
is a lot nicer. Google has a list of supported phones
, and I asked on their newsgroup
, but the answers have only been confusing me further. BREW? MIDP2
Ideally, I'd get the Verizon RAZR, but it doesn't sound like Gmail will work. I'm also confused about the data plans--do they all add another $20x2 to the bill? Do I need those even to get to m.gmail.com?
I'd love it if somebody could steer me right because it's giving me a headache.
Thank you AskMe!
