TO anyone with a postpaid/contract carrier. You need to move to StraightTalk/Net10/TracFone/TMob/etc. Get a Nexus 4 ($300 or $350 unlocked), and grab a prepaid SIM.

I currently have unlimited talk/text/data for $42/mo.

Free yourself. As for Blackberry? Dead. Microsoft? Dead. Move on.

re: Windows Phone Tops BlackBerry In U.S.
Having used all (except the yet to come BB10), i can easily say that WP8 is the best mobile OS out there. it just happen to be born in a sea full of big fish. but if it survives it's young years, it will no doubt dominate. it is robust, solidly coded and extremely intuitive, the user interface of WP8 makes both Android and iOS look like museum material.

of course the WP8 market of apps is no mach for the massive Google Play or the App Store. but it is growing fast and it has all the essential apps, it doesn't yet have 10000 apps that simulate drinking a soda and burping, but that's OK...

I would also say the real fight for first is Apple and Korean manufacturer Samsung.

BB10 sales are beating iPhone sales in Canada and in UK, they are just behind iPhone 5 / 4s and Galaxy S3. WP8 need not apply.
