Will this phone require a "Simply Everything" plan?

I am on a $29.99 employee plan that includes everything I could ever need to use this device to its fullest potential (unlimited data, unlimited text/picture messaging, GPS included, etc.), but Sprint has required its customers to use a Simply Everything plan on many of its newer devices (Instinct and Pre). Does anyone know if this phone will be available to those without a Simply Everything plan?
you don't need an SE plan, just an everything data plan, which is what your employee plan is... sorta (it rolls all the data in the plan in other words). you'll be fine.

Wi-Fi really that big a deal for teenagers?

I know at this point it's heresy to not include every little feature a phone can carry. Adults MAY use it, business use it?
But from my experience teens don't really use wi-fi as often as people think. Teens mostly care for messaging.

Why would teens need wi-fi? Most of them text, IM, Facebook, Twitter.
Is a teen willing to pay Starbucks for wi-fi to check their Facebook faster?
Is a teen going to use their phone at home instead of their home computer?
Is a teen going to go to a sports bar really going to connect on wifi?

oh you do?

"They told me that it was to keep costs of the device down (Pixi will most likely retail for $99), and Palm also doesn't believe that the targeted user segment (teens) is all that interested in Wi-Fi. I beg to differ."

oh you do? of the hundreds of phones i've sold to teenagers i can count on ZERO fingers how many of them asked me if a phone has wi-fi. and if they want it, there's the Pre....

seriously, sometimes phone reviewers assume every new phone has to have 100% feature sets or they're disappointed. real world use =/= phone nerds like us and our expectations.

for $99 with 8gb of storage, 2mp camera with flash, rev A data speeds, this thing is loaded and the slim form factor is awesome.
I happen to be a teen and I don't like this phone and a major thing is NO WI-FI. also the tiny keyboard.

Gesture Area = Waste of Space

I understand that this is supposed to be a low-end smartphone, but that screen could be much bigger if they did away with the gesture area.

I would've liked WiFi, but again ... value phone.

They have no excuse for not having a microSD slot. Wouldn't that have been cheaper than the cost of 8 gigs of memory? I know SD cards are way more convenient for me.

Maybe I'm just sore AT&T isn't getting this Sad
"Maybe I'm just sore AT&T isn't getting this"

hehe could be Smile. i agree, the SD card slot would be nice, but i've found for the majority of people, an SD card slot = something to spend another $40+ on, 8gb is plenty, and they'd never know what that...

DID you just seriously say that? Your brain isn't even connected to your mouth is it?
Wow, if I worked for phonescoop I would trace your ip address and smack you! After following Cartmans example of turning your parents into chili and feeding it to you!
thats mest up dog what if it is rich brozy lol he can probably ban you Shocked
Now, Im not going to try and be funny and say leprosy.. but seriously, thats majorly disconcerting and they should have thought about that before putting the pictures up.

And also, get some farking cream or salve or something.
