Special data plan?

I remember with the Motorola touch screen phone (I don't remember the name right now) They charged $15 a month for a special data plan. Does anybody know if they'll be doing the same for this phone? I would love this phone but I don't want to have to pay that much more a month, things are tight in this economy!
with it being a android its gonna take some kind of data plan.
Of course this phone will require a data plan. I am currently a sprint employee and I personally know for a fact that any "android" phone has got to have some sort of data plan, so this phone will need one also. And the only good thing about this phon...
There is a plan required for the phone, but if you have like an old plan then there is no special data add on.
You just have to change to a data plan.

450 land line minutes
free c...

I'm sorry--

--but what is it with manufacturers releasing Android 1.6? It's a slap in the face to consumers.

That seems to be the nature of Android at the moment. Fragmentation issues. Hopefully 3.0 will resolve...

Kyocera Zio M6000 doesn't have an alarm?!!!

i was doing a phone comparison, and it says it doesn't have an alarm! is this true? the most basic of phones have alarms. does anyone have this phone? Confused
phone scoop says it doesn't and phone arena says it does. I was wondering the same thing, maybe I'll have to go by a cricket store later.

Has anyone turned on the accessibility features of this phone?

Should be in settings>accessibility>talkback, kickback, and soundback. I'd like to know how well they work. Especially talkback.

Who else?

It's saying that the Zio will be coming to cricket later this summer. Realese date is May 15th so who is getting it on the 15th? I kinda hope Virgin Mobile gets this phone at some point. I won't hold my breath for that one though.
There were pictures from the CricKet database that says it's not coming out until July unfortunately Crying or Very sad but if it's coming out May 15, that's going to be my birthday present! lol I've beein wanting an android phone now for years (since the G1!) bu...

Looks like Cricket has a winner

When you compare spec for this phone with those of the Verizon Eris - they are very similar. Only this phone has almost twice the memory - an important fact.
This should be winner for Cricket if they can get it right and support the phone.
all i can say as a cricket customer is AWWWW YEAH! Very Happy They are finally catching up with the times!!!!! Oh boy oh boy oh boy
