T-Mobile has dropped it's price to $50 (at least the phone upgrade price).
No, none of us have actually owned one of these since we headed off into the Android smart phone direction instead. But, if I was just getting a phone, this is one I'd look to get. Truthfully, the Android (HTC Dream, G-1) and the Blackberry Curve (8320) are harder to use as phones than an actual phone and I find myself missing the Razr sometimes. (That said, I use those devices as a phone probably 10% of the time and as an Internet device and PDA most of the rest of the time). So, that 8220 seems to be a great solution to what one needs. Also it's a step up from the txt-ing and Facebook-messaging user from a regular phone.
