A buddy of mine will never buy another Samsung phone. I suspect,
however, he's mostly whining because of the proprietary charger
connection. If you stick with a usb charging port, you should be good.
Sticking with rogers/fido is good. Drop your phone, slap your sim card
into another (even a WalMart special), and get on with your day. Or
just keep your old phone around for backup. Dropped mine in the drink
one day while on vacation, popped into WalMart, got on with the rest
of the vacation.
Rogers Pay As You Go - $8 1/3 / month.
i.e. As well, just want to play, test, investigate - get a 2nd SIM
card. Stick it into the USB stick for your laptop, or something. Or,
if laptopping, call forward your current number to the other, put your
current sim into the laptop (take advantage of your plan minutes,
etc.), and the spare into the phone - maintain your ability to
make/receive calls while the laptop is on the net.
