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 ( 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.
