    My Treo 600 is costing me about $100 each month. My breakdown is:

    T-Mo plan: $50
    Insurance: $5
    Extra Text Messenges: $3
    Unlimited Internet: $20
    Taxes: $6
    Programs: Averaging about $16/mo

    Total: $100 per month. My software budget shown go down, as I now have about everything I need.

    I'd better get back to work!

    I am on a shared minute plan with my 3 kids. Before this phone, I had a small flip picture phone which was on the same shared plan so no extra cost there. The only additional expenses that I have incurred after switching to the Treo are insurance ($4 a month) and software (about $25 a month but I expect that to nosedive since I am pretty well set on software now).

    I am actually saving. I am on a shared plan (2 phones - 2500 minutes). When I had my Kyocera 6035 I was paying $135.00 per month. I am now down to around $120.00 per month. That includes insurance, taxes, etc. I am pretty set on software...until I read another thread with some neat application.

    Me = Nokia 5170/Palm III > Kyocera 6035 > Treo 600 > Treo 650 > Treo 700p > Treo 755p > Treo Pro > Palm Pre

    Wife = Treo 600 > Treo 650 > Treo 755p > Palm Centro > Palm Pixi

    I refuse to pay more than $35 for phone access (300 mins + nts\weekend) and that includes the Sprint Replacement Program. I use the 'pay as you go' deal for limited data email.

    Sorry, guys theres no way I could convince my wife (or myself !!) to pay close to or above $100 a month for phone access unless it was career critical and supplemented. At the end of the day this is a phone we are talking about and not a second car!!!!

    I am saving money from before I switched to the Treo 600.

    Before my Treo 600

    Sprint 800 minutes - 69.99
    Phone protection - 3.99
    RIM/Skytel subscription - 50.00
    RIM protection - 3.99

    Total - 127.97 + taxes

    With my Treo 600

    T-Mobile 2500 minutes - 99.99
    Treo protection - 3.99
    Unlimited Data - 19.99
    300 Text Messages - 2.99

    Total - 126.96 + taxes

    A small decrease - but - I have increased my minutes signifiantly (needed more anyway for my new job). Plus I now get Friday free from T-Mobile, so I might be able to cut back my minutes.

    Had an accident last month.Someon ran into the back of me forcing me into the back of someone else. Seeing that I was not hurt, got out and started taking pictures of all the damage to all 3 cars. Called my insurance company and sent pictures and other driver's info right from the treo 600 to the insurance agent. THen called police, text messaged (Treo600SMS)a friend that I would be late for dinner and check email. All while at the scene.........!!!

    Unlimited T-zones: $5.00
    Insurance: $4.00
    Taxes and s**t: $7.00
    Total : $66.00

    What are the advantages of the unlimited internet? I have tzones unlimited and can go to any website on my treo and get all my email and have no problems receiving calls or anything. So why do people pay 20 bucks for unlimited internet?

    I got the AT&T Wireless $12.99 data plan in which it gives me 4 megs and then about $.06/kb afterwards. I had to download a mailer (Snappermail) which allowed me to pre-screen my emails (look at headers only, for example) because it was costing me about $85/month to use the thing on visiting hotmail (w/images turned off) and espn. The data plans are really terrible with AT&T Wireless. With all the money I've spent, I could have just invested in a T1 connection or have a year's worth of DSL paid in full. What rip off.
