It was my understanding that quality of voice and data service is likely to be lower on plans provided by the resellers/piggybackers than on plans from the four network owners (AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile). The big 4 may have a different marketing name for their prepaid plans, which are of the same quality as their postpaid/flagship plans, but any reseller will involve a quality tradeoff.

Yeah, T-Mobile is an exceptional value if you mostly stay in the city. Decent coverage, great price, and no middleman.
> 3. Who's got a favorite calendaring app? I need to be able to connect via CalDAV to servers I've set up, so something that just works with Google Calendar isn't useful for me. Right now I have SolCalendar (http://calendar.sol.daum.net/calendar) which is ok. One thing I cannot get it to do is ignore alerts from one calendar, while providing them with another. That is, you choose what type of alert notification you want (beep, vibrate, on-screen notification) but the choice is systemwide, not per-calendar.
A former coworker always spoke highly of Business Calendar. I never tried it myself because the Google Calendar app fits my needs. It might be worth checking out.
