    Running $ total on your setup.

    I'm just about ready to order a PPC 6600 from Sprint. I will probably wait til next week because tomorrow is my wife's b day and well.... her present was a little less than $629 (retail), and my birthday was back in Jan. Anyway, my question is, How much has everyone spent to feed this little addiction? I can get out the door for $512 after rebates and stuff. But what are yall spending for cases, chargers, headsets, car mounts, software, and etc? Hopefully, this will help give me an idea on what the "true" cost of ownership of one of these is.

    BTW, found this on ebay. I think the guy's on crack.

    HobbesIsReal did a few nice threads for minimal stuff you want (software and hardware).

    Most stuff is optional, nice to have.

    You cut down on monthly cost I talked Sprint into the $10/mo data plan (no picture mail, no business connection etc.). It is not listed. But it's pure data only.

    Bare min.

    SD Memory Card (1 Gig around $80).
    Voice Command

    You may want a BT headset (see Sticky Poll on which ones work).

    GPS is, a nice to have you can wait on. But starts at around $180.00

    Probably expect to pay another $100 or so for you favorite apps.

    Most cases average around $40.00, I run with no case.

    A must have for both is screen protectors. There are cheap ones very few like and expensive ones called WriteShield and some other similar names.

    See the Sticky FAQ for some info.
