I don't have a cell phone, I have Onstar. And for the amount of time and ability to use it Onstar'* 39 cents a minute is way cheaper than any Plan. (no cell coverage around my house, or for almost 20 miles actually. I live in a hole)

And I like being able to just say a name or number and it'* dailed. Not to metioned clarity is better than any handheld I ever owned, And it comes through my stereo. Don't even have to turn down the radio. It cuts out when you push the "Phone Button"

I've got a Blackberry Storm 2 that I connect via bluetooth to my aftermarket touch screen. I just turn on bluetooth on my phone and it instantly connects and has all my contacts stored. Even brings up dialed and received calls. Voice dial works.. kinda. The phone voice dial kinda gives up right before you place the call, but normally people call me while I'm driving anyways. It mutes radio and switches to phone when someone calls. I shoved the aftermarket mic into the onstar mic on the bottom of the mirror, I've been told it sounds great. I didn't know it was the onstar mic location when I decided it was the best place to use.

Storm'* plan is a bit pricey, I'm splitting a family plan with someone who has a 15% discount, and it still runs me about $80 per month with 750 minutes per person, and unlimited SMS, MMS, and data on the Verizon network.

NP, been distracted with all the chaos of the Circus that came to Boone town, and a normally maintenance free wife who decided today was time for the 75,000 mile full inspection and service.........

And, hahaha. Ya, I usually have the higher end of the spectrum w/things. But after I bought the GXP w/the Onstar phone, I let my 'Plan" phone expire. I'm just plain hate talking on the phone to begin with. I can't tell you how many times I'm in town and just want to rip BlueToooth;* out of people ears. LOL. In the old days you knew who was crazy and talking to themselves.......
