    aiwapro, the "Get more 3000" Voicestream plan you mentioned is excellent. With something like that you don't need off-peak minutes. Too bad is not national and it costs $59.99 ($10 more) here in NJ. How much do they charge for roaming? They seem to hide this information in their website. They also offer the National plan for $39.99 with 500 Minutes all the time Mon-Fri and unlmited weekends. No roaming or LD in all 50 states as long as there's coverage. This is excellent but I think I would go over my minutes since there are no night minutes.

    In my case, what I have works best for me: 500 minutes daytime/ 3500 minutes nights and weekends. No roaming or LD in all 50 states even if I am off-network. $49.99/month. I normally use about 350 to 450 of the 500 minutes and about 900 of the 3500 night & weekend minutes. This same plan costs $39.99 in the west coast.

    Digital Roaming costs 49¢ per minute plus applicable long distance charges. Long Distance out of your area is 20¢ per minute. (GET MORE 3000)

    I have that plan that Nationwide plan that you were refering to, but I get 700 anytime minutes instead of 500 since I have been with them for over a year, almost two (2) years now. I get the UNLIMITED Weekends, and I pay $2.99 for 500 text messages. When my Motorola P 280 comes in the mail soon, I will call and cancel the $2.99 for 500 text messages, and have them sign me up for the iStream $2.99 that entitles me to 1MB of iStream service (about 500 phone screen messages), and 300 text messages. This is really a great deal.

    Free nights is the reason why alot of people have held out on Voicestream. Thet are testing out UNLIMITED nights in Chicago & Milwaukee. I however don't really need the night minutes, because I can use my home phone at night, or just use my 'anytime' minutes. Usually I am at home though.

    Cool, I hope the P280 works good for you. If Voicestream decides to offer night minutes here and make their signal strong in my house I will consider switching to them in the future when GSM is strong all over the US. I use my cellphone a lot at night to avoid long distance charges and I get a fairly strong signal (-71dB) in my house.

    Jack,

    I seen you had the motorola 270c. do you have any problems with it? I went through 3 of them in 3 weeks....the keypad lock (Menu, *) comes off by itself and you can accidently dial numbers. If you hit end, it will go back on. My friend has the same problem. Verizon said it was a software issue, but no new software came out yet, so I go annoyed, so I switched to the v60c. Do you have that same problem with the 270c?

    Thanks,

    Joe

    It looks like recent Motorola phones are having problems lately.

    Why can't Motorola get things straight? Everybody else can.
