...or when it's included in your plan, dude you should call care and see if they can give that to you free. Most new plans have roaming included for the same price you're probably paying now.
It's true that you get what you pay for mostly. Like it says in the article, you get to choose two of the following: Low Cost, Features, Small Size. This phone is feature packed and small, compared to other Sprint EVDO phone it's still inexpensive. So this phone you actually get all three.
Anyone who thinks this phone is too expensive is smoking crack! 😛 The size and style are great. The features are almost unmatched. But the FM transmitter is going to be the end of life as I know it! (my teenage daughter is the one with the fusic, so now she'll be invading my car stereo with her crappy music!)
