over in the "Nokia Surge 6790" discussion:

Looks nice but ...

I really like the form factor, but no wi-fi, poor camera resolution, no standalone GPS and data plan requirement makes this a no-sale.
what I think is that up down left right are going to be too hard, unneccesary how small the lip on the d-pad is but we'll see when it comes out.
????? What are you talking about? The camera resolution is decent considering the PRICE, I don't know of any phone on a carrier that has free GPS, and the data plan requirement is only for the rebate, which is only $50. The wifi, on the other hand.......

$30 "data plan" = messaging + data unlimited??

That's what it looks like from my experience. It might just be required for the rebate (as in, only if you want to receive the rebate get that), which if it's what I'm thinking, that seems like a great deal!

I did play with a customer's phone (his son worked for Nokia) and the keyboard was pretty decent for the size. Not bad, Nokia.
Just 30 for internet NOT text....20 dollors more for txt.

$70 a month minimum without text..... WOW!

A smartphone for people not smart enough to know it. Face it, 9 out of 10 AT&T customers will never add another app to this phone and if you told them they had a S60 phone in their hand they would say, "No, its a Nokia". They will never know AT&T made Nokia leave out the wi-fi, cripple the GPS and only give them a puny 2mp. camera. I would bet they made them leave out the podcasting app too, (might use a little too much of AT&T's data).
So with text package your looking at $75 a month or $1,800 over 2 years. Thats a lot of money for this phone.
yea exactly what I was saying below you lol.
And who do you use? ๐Ÿคจ
Won't cost me 75/month-already have family text plan (30/month for 4 phones), line is 10 month. That would be 17.50 + 30=47.50. And tkboxer-why do you assume 9 out of 10 ATT customers are stupid?
if you buy the phone, wait for the rebate then call 611 and change the IMEI number to a 'regular' phone, you can tell them to add the 30 unlimited everything and just use it with this phone. no one will know!
i have done this with windows mobile and ...
The $30 PDA plan is for Business capable phones - ie, Exchange/Blackberry/Visto/etc mail capable. This has every indication of being a consumer device like the 6650 or the N75 of old.

I might be wrong, of course, but AT&T's press releases have bee...
I mean you guys are discussing the price ....Its the same as any other smart phone. Same as the iphone same as the blackberry and same as the fuze(which I own)So whats the big fuss about the price?????? ๐Ÿ˜•

$30 Data Plan???

Its nice but not that nice. Rather have the iPhone for a $30 data plan for $20 more for the phone.

Lacks Wifi.

Although, It's actually a decent looking device, spec-wise.

Jul 13, 2009, 9:32 AM

It looks nice..

but did AT&T wireless really need another Nokia smartphone? They really need to have one similar to this as a standard device to compete with the Samsung Impression and the LG Xenon in my personal opinion.
