View Full Version : Android or webOS on prepay phone?

July 2nd, 2009, 03:55 PM
I need a phone mainly for talk, text and its ability to sync well with Gmail and Google calender. I don't want a contract and am planning to buy the phone, then get a pre-pay sim card. I would prefer to rarely use 3G and set the phone up to sync only when it detects an open Wifi connection.
Currently I am looking at the Pre or otherwise the upcoming Samsung or HTC with Android.I will never get a microsoft or apple product.

Does anyone have any advice or experience of a similar situation?

I don't know where you are, but currently in the USA the Palm Pre is only available as a CDMA phone locked to a specific carrier. In other words, no unlocked sim card Pre available yet.

I would say wait for the HTC Hero or get a G1 and when the Sense UI is unlocked load it up on the phone.

Thanks. Im in the UK and can preorder any of the above phones unlocked from expansys. The main issue is really which os to use.

Oh wow, I want that HTC Hero. I wonder if they'd ship to the USA. The price is a bit shocking, though...
