    I'm upgrading my Treo 600, and will be getting a 700p. I've got Verizon. For the last 2 years, I have enjoyed NA-MOU and "free" data on my Treo, I was never forced onto a costly data plan, and I'm trying hard to keep it that way! But my 600 is dying, and we've been facing overages every month since ditching our land-line phone. I'm working through a commercial sales rep and still hold out a slight glimmer of hope that I can keep this on the new contract and I won't be stuck with $500/year worth of data charges.

    On my Treo 600, green arrows mean active and gray arrows indicate there is still a data connection and I'm being charged minutes. At the time, this was causing $3000 bills and hastened the demise of NA-MOU, but between BatteryDr. and discipline I only ever once left my phone on data, and it timed out 2 hours later. Does the Treo 700p work the same way with regards to gray arrows & standby time costing minutes, or was this fixed with the newer phones? If I do manage to get the commercial rep to hook me up with "free" MOU, I really don't want to get any nasty surprises like the first NA-MOU Treo people did!

    On a side note, do picture messages still activate the data connection and leave it logged in until timeout? I never had to worry about this before, but both my wife and I will have picture phones now, so I imagine we'll use it more...

    Eh, on the other hand, given EVDO and the faster browser and being able to Orb video from my PC, I'm thinking it might actually be worth $40/month now! Either way, I'm excited enough about it to drop $1k on a 2-year contract w/data and not worry about trying to keep MOU.

    You could also switch to Sprint and only pay $15 a month for data.

    For $50 a month you get unlimited data and 1000min

    I could also have no reception at my house. Or, alternately, for just $5 more a month, free roaming and still no data at my house

    It's cliche, but I ultimately stayed with Verizon because of the network. I have 2 phones on this plan, BTW, which changes the equation somewhat, too.
