... but not at AT&T plans are available coast-to-coast.

I was looking at plans last night for someone on the list who lives in 
New Mexico, and there were fewer voice/data plans available than there 
were in the Los Angeles area.

My Samsung Blackjack 2 has been doing all this since December 2007. Of 
course, I sync everything through plaxo.com as the Blackjack 2 doesn't 
have MS-Exchange sync'ing capabilities built in. (It'll sync Email 
through AT&T's XpressMail service though)

I'll much prefer the Freerunner over my Samsung once the software is 
solid, as having a true-multitasking environment will be a giant leap 
forward for how I stay connected.
