With your comment, "there is currently a plan for 30$ that includes unlimited data/text and 100 min talk but who calls nowadays?" you're implying that there is a cheaper plan that would take advantage of plenty of data and texting, and there isn't. That's the cheapest (and in my opinion, best) plan available from T-Mobile. After that, they charge you 10 cents per minute. If you spent another 100 minutes, you'd only be paying ten more dollars.

This phone is a pretty good with some great features. I'm considering upgrading from my Dart to an L9 but the Nexus 4 is nice too.

@karmum: If you're going to use another 100 minutes, why not consider Virgin Mobile?
$35 a month gets you 300 minutes, unlimited data and unlimited texting. Not always the best phones, but the service is excellent at that price, in my opinion.

I know I'm a bit late on this, but I kinda want to respond anyway. Good point about Virgin Mobile, but how are their speeds in comparison to T-Mobile? Just curious because I have no idea, and while that plan doesn't interest me, it would probably interest my mother who needs minutes.

@karmum: I'm not sure what the speed is like. My fiance has VM, no I. I will be switching when Verizon decides to make me switch to their new "share everything" plan.
With her phone, 3G is usually pretty slow. But she has an older phone; a LG Optimus V. Since she's had VM, they have gotten the SII, and iphone 4s. So I would venture to say that the 3G would be nice on those phones.

@craigster38:
I was on my mother's Verizon plan (not paying) until last summer ($30/month is a joke for me, even at 19) and 3G was fine. I don't believe in paying extra for LTE at the moment, and HSPA+ around here (South Jersey) still gets better speeds than what I got on 3G, barely though. I can't imagine 3G being too much worse on VM over Verizon. I've tested out HSPA+ in North Jersey and was cruising on like 8000kbps download, which is double what I usually get.

At the end of the day, though, price > speed (imo), as long as it's a reasonable speed. Thanks!
