Hey all.
I seriously considered buying one of these because they are really cool. I was thinking of getting the harrier or treo.
Only problem is you can only get PDAs on a plan on the telecom network. I was extremely disappointed by it

If you are thinking of a connected CDMA PDA, then you should go for the Apache, which is smaller, newer OS and faster than the Harrier.

You can get PDA's on prepaid but you won't get data. You just buy the unit at full price. You can do one-bill on your home account with a $0 upfront monthly fee, and then pop on a data plan ($49 1GB promo reccommended)

You can use PDA data on Vodafone PrePay but it will cost you ($10 a megabyte on the slow GPRS network,,, owch.) unless you go for the $2000 JasJar which is Voda 3G

Go Onebill counts as a plan, and its $0 monthly and same rates as prepaid...

I would but i don't quite have that kind of money. very tempting though.

I also got told that you have to be 18 to go on a plan.

That is not so much a Telecom rule, as a law enabling only those persons 18+ to enter into that type of legal contract.
