I never see anyone using a PDA anymore...likely because they use their blackberries or whatever else they have to replace them. Though you honestly have to love the touch screen...plus the internet is free on PDA's, while with blackberries it costs about $100 a month...

I used a blackberry without service, for a while as a PDA. It was practical to have two devices in one for me. You can pick up a older used Blackberry for around $50, depending on which feature you need. Never needed more than a phone book and planner so the PDA would have been redundant.
I did not know PDA wireless was free?
I have Cingular (now AT&T) and only paid $30\mo, for the Cingular BIS feature. I have heard Nextel runs about $50\mo but have not looked into it.

It might not be, I talked with my dad and he said the only reason it was free was because his boss paid for it...sorry for the misleading info...

It's all good. I believed you were just looking for options, that is why I responded the way I did.
It was a good question.
