I am considering this phone but am wondering why they would offer a phone in this market with a reduced ($10) internet connect. They certainly don't advertise it and I have been w/ T-mobile for many years.

I have the samsung gravity t669 and you should test it out first like use it within the 14 days and return it for a better one.
