You have to buy the phone, yes, but you can plug the SIM into any AWS-capable
phone. A friend of mine (Leif Madsen, of Asterisk fame) did this, and there
aren't any issues outside of finding an AWS-capable phone he's happy with. :-)

It's in line with the other carriers. However what isn't in line is their
other features. THAT's what the hoopla is for, IMO. $35/mo unlimited
interwebs is something I'm willing to pay for. $50/mo for basic phone service
