Sorry for cross-posting. I might have posted to the wrong thread. I will be careful next time.
It seems that several iPhone plans rebate the cost of the original iPhone. However, the contract is for 12-24 months. What do you recommend to those who stay here for only a few months? Is it possible to use the sim card in my HK cell phone on the iPhone? What are the disadvantages of using prepaid sim cards on the iPhone if it is possible to do that?
More details about my case: I am considering to buy the iPhone 3GS instead of the just released iPod Touch because I spend almost two hours on MTR and an hour in green mini-buses on the weekdays. During this time, I want to check emails and browse websites via high-speed internet. Even I have a cell phone now (with prepaid sim card), I don't make phone calls that often (1-2 calls/week for the time being. Don't expect more than 20 calls as I prefer sms/emails). It is good if I could access the internet and make/receive phone calls anywhere. Which company and service plan do you recommend? I do not know how long I will stay in HK at this point. Could be a few months. Could be a few years. Thanks.
