How is Samsung SCH-A530? and Shared Plans

    My daughter will be porting her Cingular number over to Verizon for better
    coverage at the end of this month when her contract is up. I went to a mall
    store with her this weekend and she likes the size and feel of the Samsung
    SCH-530 phone. Her 2nd choice is the Audiovox CDM8600 that I have - I told
    her the user interface on this could be improved. I'll be getting her a
    data cable and connection S/W on ebay for whatever phone she uses so she can
    have internet access on her computer for nights and weekends.

    1. Any comments on how the SCH-530 performs and how people like the user

    2. Anybody looked at the benefits of having a separate account versus
    family share plan? She'll be living on the left coast with her right coast
    phone number she has had for 4 years. The rest of the family is on the
    right coast. I know only the primary phone gets unlimited In-network
    calling on a shared plan unless you pay $10/mos more. She will start out
    with AC 400 min/mos plan plus $4.99/mos mobile web.

    Thanks for your opinions

    I've had the SCH a530 for about six weeks now and am very pleased with
    it. For the previous several years I had been satisfied with a StarTAC
    7868w. My main reason for switching was to get a 1X capable phone. The
    first phone I tried was a Motorola V60s--took it back after two days due
    to terrible battery life.

    The a530 has been terrific for data use, although it was a bit of a pain
    to get set up. The user interface is fine, but I haven't yet figured
    out a good way to light up the keypad when the phone is in use. Battery
    life is outstanding. Voice quality is okay. All in all, a great phone
    (assuming you don't need analog).
