    This is getting sadder and sadder everything I see it.

    I like the Yanks logo detail on his sign [​IMG]

    Too fucking much money for me to even consider it. Especially since a newer better model will be out probably next year.

    Compare the Blackberry unlimited web/email:
    regularly 49.99 per month
    Special.. only 39.99 per month when you also sign up for a 2 year voice plan!
    Cheapest voice plan = 29.99 per month
    so the total would be 70.00 per month x 24 months = 1680
    add a Blackberry to the plan... 200.00

    Total cost over 2 years of crappy Sprint service = 1880.00

    add activation costs and whatever else they decide to nickel and dime you on, and it's actually pretty comparable.

    Me, I got a free phone and 29.99 a month voice only service, cuz I can't afford all that crap.

    edit: ...and it's still too damn expensive if you ask me.

    So, can you use it without the phone service, like as a PDA? Just release a damn PDA with all of this crap, then I would be a happy camper.

    This mother fucker is outside waiting for a fucking phone and he has the nerve to ask for donations?! He's about to blow over half a grand on a phone and he wants people to cover cost of food during his wait? Fuck him. If you are concerned about paying for food for the next four days, then you shouldn't be buying this shit.

    Back off, get your own sandwich you stupid ass mother fucker.

    I think he's kidding, I mean...he's taking Metrocards donations too [​IMG]
    And he doesn't look really starving.

    On a side note: I was watching the local news, and they mention that the iPhone doesn't have a replaceable battery...WTF?

    lmao. Do geeks really need google maps in their pocket? I mean, they know where the local gamestop and comic shop is. They don't need much else.
