Wi-Fi Equipped PDA Cell Phone
With a number of people switching to the new iPhone, I was wondering if I were to get a used wi-fi equipped PDA cell phone, will the wi-fi part work without subsribing to service for the cell phone provider?

I can't answer your question, but as a side note on the I-phone, I went to one of the AT&T stores in town this past Monday to get my Razr phone repaired.
They said they "couldn't" fix it, but would "allow" me to upgrade to another phone. (How generous of them.) Of course the upgrade would require another two year contract (I've been with them since 1991, but still have to have a contract) PLUS an upgrade to my monthly plan - spelled "more expensive" plan.
The option to the contract and plan upgrade would be to pay full price for the phone.
Now for the interesting part:
The salesperson tried to get me to buy an I-phone (which I DO NOT want - DON'T need - and DON'T want to have to pay for all the extra services to make all the cutsie little features work).
Now remember all the hype, long lines, and the $500-600 price tag this past weekend.
She told me that the I-phone would only cost me - GET THIS - $229.00.
Now this was on Monday, and they were getting $500-600 for them THE DAY BEFORE!
Anybody here pay the full price for an I-phone this past weekend? You could have waited until Monday and paid half the money for it.
Enjoy your new I-phone.

I use the Sprint PPC 6700 (Pocket PC). It is EVDO, GPS, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi, enabled. I pay -0- extra to use the Wi-Fi.
I am currently looking for an upgrade to it (the call quality can be poor, and its been through hell). I will not be looking to the iPhone as a replacement.
I would be interested though in hearing reviews of the Treo 755, Blackberry RIM, 6800 Mogul, or the MotoQ. I haven't decided yet. I might actually wait until there's more options.

I have a Treo 700wx through Sprint (the Windows version). I got it at the beginning of the year, and I love the thing. The OS on it is FAST!
