Thanks for the help. Just a couple more questions, I promise!

Hi, "IrishCarBomb(I won't ask), as well as everybody else, and thanks for the response. It's obvious that you definitely worked in the cell phone field.
After pondering your response and doing a lot more homework on the matter, it looks like I'll probably end up staying with a more 'traditional' no-contract provider, such as Cricket, Boost, Virgin, etc... After looking at the 'big name' providers, it appears that since they can't depend on holding people 'hostage,' for two years, they try to compensate for it by inflating the price of the phone on the front side. The majority of the carriers want A LOT for their phones! MAN!
With that said, I have some (hopefully) final questions for you, as well as everyone out there.
1. I was told that Flash Player requires Android 2.2 or 2.3 for installation; is that accurate?
2. Is the speed of the processor very significant, and if so, how? As I understand it, a processor speed of 1GHz will allow the user to watch videos, move around websites, etc., with less 'lock up' and sluggishness than a 580 MHz processor. Any truth to that?
3. Can somebody PLEASE educate me a little more in the areas of MB, GB, etc.? Apparently, the majority of the providers out there slow the speed of your phone(until the end of your billing cycle) if you exceed a certain amount of data.
So please humor me here. Using 1GB as an arbitrary amount, what does a user have to do to exceed 1GB in one month? Is it easy? Difficult? None of the above?
Let's say that the user jumps on the Internet a couple of times a day, and texts about 8-10 messages per day, with a response to the majority of them. From time to time, the Internet sessions require having several browsers open simultaneously. In y'all's expert opinions, will the user reach 1GB in less or greater than a months time?
Thanks again for your help and your patience; I really appreciate it.
If anyone has any suggestions, comments, advice or whatever, please don't hesitate to let me know.
