    Just got one off-contract

    I am a GSM newbie.

    What is the cheapest plan I can use with it?

    For phone: I would want to forward from my Sprint Pre when I am in the house or running in the park with my tiny veer. ATT reception not the greatest around me so I am sticking with Sprint for my main phone.

    Have a google number, not sure if using it in the mix could save minutes. I mainly use it with Sprint to call Canada for free.

    What plan, simcard should I get? Do they charge for minutes for forwarded calls received?

    Saw on the Veer unlocked thread a post where someone bought an H20 card and it worked without unlocking. I see my local Best Buy carries them...

    For texting--would texts forward from my sprint number, how does this work?

    For data, I am Ok with using wifi only. I assume I should turn off data.

    Thanks for the advice, never used a GSM before.

    What you are probably going to want to do is use the phone as a go phone. That way you would only need a 2 dollar a day plan for unlimited talk/text or even a basic 10 cents a minute plan if you just want to activate the phone. I do not believe that you will need a postpaid plan to use WIFI on the phone. Just go to an ATT store or authorized ATT dealer and they should be able to set you up

    thanks, I will look into this, my hope is to spend no more than 35 a month as sprint pre takes care of all my primary needs but does not pair well w touchpad, Bluetooth has an echo

    You might also want to look into Google Voice. It might help with forwarding things from your Sprint phone to your Veer.

    the veer is pretty great. Tucked nicely into my fanny pack when I go to exercise, sounds great playing music on it w Bluetooth. No more bulky Pre in my
    outdoor jaunts!

    Bought a H2o minute card which gave me 4 mo expire from this week and then filled it again with 39.99 monthly minute card and it still kept the 4 month initial expiration.

    Yes I forwarded calls from sprint pre via google voice, there are 9 rings before it gets to the veer but if someone wants me they can do it. Turned off data but figured if I was desperate for email, I could duck into a Starbucks. Something refreshing about not being "always on.'

    To forward from sprint, I think I passed *28 google #,my understanding is that sprint will not charge forwarding costs to google # but I could be wrong.

    Love the magnetic charger but am worried I will not be able to find one if my cats chew it up so I bought a few spares from HP. I have a feeling they are going to show a good quarter in Oct from all us webOS spenders.
