ST. LOUIS, Jan. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Financial blog http://christianpf.com, ChristianPF.com released an article discussing the newly released Nexus One and the pros and cons of going with T-Mobile or waiting for Verizon. Currently T-Mobile is offering the phone for $180 with a two year contract. But with all the restrictions that T-Mobile is putting on the plans many customers are planning on waiting until the Spring to get it with Verizon.
The article continues by discussing the cost advantages of T-Mobile over Verizon. According to the author, "I have been a Verizon customer for probably 7-8 years and have had a pretty good experience with them. Their coverage is great, the customer service is pretty good, and they have traditionally had at least decent options for phones. Banking on the rumors that the Nexus One would be coming to T-Mobile soon, we started comparing prices. It turns out that we can get a family plan with T-Mobile for about $50/month less than with Verizon."
*The author explains why he has changed his opinion about having a cell phone that just makes calls (like the Jitterbug<http://www.christianpf.com/jitterbug-cell-phone-review/>) versus having a sophisticated smartphone (like the Nexus One or iPhone). "I pretty much have always just gotten the cheapest phone I could - because all I cared about was that it actually made calls. I didn't need the bells and whistles, etc. But Apple's iPhone really changed the game. From my experience (playing with different phones) it was the first phone that actually had some legitimate functions that would help me save time and make my life simpler. After having tried a couple palm-pilots in the past, I was disappointed to find that while their intention was good, my productivity was actually worse because of all the time spent setting up the process or using the device. I realized that a pencil and paper (while so primitive) often made my life a little easier. The iPhone was the first device that has made me reconsider what I once believed about devices like this."*
