In your case it is great that you have ATT, because they use GSM, which will allow you to buy an unlocked phone and use it at 1900-2100mhz (if you actually decide to get data plan).

T-Mobile phones fit the bill.

The problem with unlocked is I dont have the money for it. Also, Unlocked works like this correct- buy a regular phone, free, etc. Take out the SIM card and put it into the unlocked phone. Thus you can use a smartphone without having to pay for a data plan and use a regular one.

Thanks for the comments. Money is the number one concern, I had lost my previous cheap phone which is the reason why im trying to get a smartphone so that I dont have to carry lots of different devices around. Either way, ill be spending 106 to cancel the 2 year contract, an extra 360 dollars over 2 years for the data plan on my existing plan, and 50-100 for the phone.

just one side question, Is there any way ATT can find my lost phone when its out of battery? This would help a lot because then I can take out the SIM card and buy an unlocked phone, saving me money if kept for a long time.

Edit** What I meant by finding it is the general area of where it is. It was in one of my short pockets but the next day I went to that pocket and it was gone. I tend to sleepwalk a lot, so I figured I probably did something with it in my sleep.

^ I don't think they can locate your phone, especially when it ran out of juice. Unless though there's a way to ping the last known location of the phone before dying, either via radio signals, IMEI, etc.

It sure does, I use it myself. But the 3G-4G data is limited to 5GB, then they throttle your speed to EGDE. This kills my horny every month, because I use 5 GB in less than 2 weeks. Another thing I hate about t-mobile is that they are the only effin provider that runs high speed data in 1700mhz UP and 2100mhz DOWN, which makes all of the phones in the world incompatable with their service, because all normal providers use 1900-2100
