Whether you get the iPhone, a Freerunner, a Nokia, a Samsung,
whatever... you still need to pay for the cellular service.
Yes, it's cheaper if you buy pay-as-you-go service, and yes, if you buy
the 'locked' iPhone (retail box from AT&T) you *must* buy into a contract.
My point was basically that if you want to use a lot of voice/data on
the Freerunner, you're probably going to spend the same dollar amount on
the voice/data plan as you would with the iPhone, so in that case, yes,
the iPhone is cheaper.
If you can manage everything you do only on pay-as-you-go service, then
it's possible that the Freerunner will be cheaper after two years.
