    I really don’t get why Americans always talk about the price for a cell phone WITH a data plan. If I take an expensive enough data plan I can EVERY phone for 1โ‚ฌ in Germany… But what’s the point? As an technology enthusiast waiting for a contract to expire is far to slow, so I always buy them and then later sell them.

    1. Will the current phones work when Mango gets released?
    2. Would you advise to buy now, or wait?
    3. Can you develop apps without the app store?

    • 1) Yes, current phones will continue to work and will update automagically
      2) No need to wait
      3) Yes. You can even give them to friends to “side load” onto their phones (for testing, etc.). But I believe you can’t sell them except through the store. IANAL, please check your license ๐Ÿ™‚

        Thanks Jesse, a STRANGE thing happened. Management forbid us from developing any WP7 apps, but our company issued phones are almost 4 banger calculators.

        All of a sudden, now that the phones are basically FREE, management has decided that we ALL need Windows Phones, and we’re going gung ho in the app business(well, it will take a bit of time, but…).

        You don’t know how happy we are to be moving from dumb phones to the smart ones. BTW, we’re already with AT&T, so we can just switch out the phones, keep the current plan, but sign up for a data plan.
