I'm Not Pleased with AT&T

So I was pricing upgraded phones from AT&T. I'm resigned to the fact that I have to automatically go to a $10/mo more expensive plan, because my plan is ancient and they only offer it to senior citizens (450mins for $29.99/mo). Every Single Damn One of the QWERTY cell phones available required either a $20/mo data or a $30/mo data plan IN ADDITION to the extra per month cost. This is Unacceptable. I will not be raped by my cell phone company. I also looked at buying an unlocked phone and just plugging my SIM card into it. And then found on the forums that when AT&T detects a smartphone on the other end of that SIM card, they tack on an extra $30/month "for my convenience." Ha de friggin Ha. Also Not Acceptable.

Now my options are: buy the unlocked phone anyway and try to browbeat AT&T into upgrading my plan WITHOUT the stupid data or messaging plan, or go with another company. Folks who use Sprint: what are the per-text fees if one does not buy the plan that includes text?

I use Sprint, but I have unlimited everything and a smartphone. Not directly useful, I know.

However, I wanted to say that Sprint was wonderful when I underbought on my plan and after a month they waived all charges and let me change my plan. I recommend going with a low one and trying it for a month. Then, if it's an issue, you should be able to adjust.

I love T-mobile and am planning to add on internet. I have unlimited talk to everyone anywhere plus 400 text messages and if I tack on full 3G internet I can discontinue cable and save $50
