    Wireless Plan / Phone Advice

    I'm in a situation where I may be able to give up my company AT&T cell phone and get one privately then expense it, as such I need to consider the best plan / phone choice.

    I'd like to choose one that has good data service as well as voice coverage and thought people may be able to relate their experiences and help with some suggestions.

    Area - Boston and North of Boston, 93 / 495 Area
    Services - Voice, phone based browser and ideally data service that can be accessed through the phone from my PC/PDA

    I'd like an "all in one" package with unlimited data service, is there such a thing? I don't want to be tied to the phone company email system so POP3 access would be good, messenger services are a plus, especially Yahoo messenger.

    Any suggestions on plans / prices / phones to consider?

    Thanks, Chris.

    I was also wondering about the tmobile. I can add a phone to my wifes plan for not to much but the deciding factor is being able to use it as a wireless modem. I would want to use it at least 40 hours a week. I'v also heard the nokia 6225 dosn't work as a modem?

    Do/did any of you use the phone as a wireless modem? Which phone did/do you have? My wife had Sprint until recently and it seems the actual phone really has an impact, friends have Sprint and great coverage, her LG flip phone really sucked though.

    I live in southern NH and work in Mass. T-Mobile has great coverage in this area and I'm able to use my Samsung e-105 phone as a wireless modem from my carpc or laptop using a usb cable I got on ebay. I have an old plan where I pay $99 / month for 5000 anytime minutes including t-zones, etc. Works great. I used to have Verizon who also has great coverage, but they are more expensive. I was paying over $250/ month to Verizon.

    Hmm I'm in NY so it'll probably be more expensive but for some reason i never thought of my cell as a wireless modem before
