    Nexus One Contract Vs. No Contract?

    Hey what's up everyone, I've been doing a lot of reading of blogs, youtube, forums etc etc. Trying to figure out if I should by the phone straight out with no contract or to get a 2 year contract. I know that buying it straight out is least expensive, and I know for those of you that got no contract probably got it so you won't be locked in also. I'm sure some of you did did if for the pricing too, but i'm trying to see if I should do the 530 up front, or just go with the least expensive way up front because I'm only saving $130 dollars for that year. So I'm torn between what to do AAHHHHH! I've been hearing a lot of good things about the phone...so i'm not worried about wanting to switch anytime soon. Here's the math for you guys, what would you do? For the Individual 500 minutes Talk/Text/Internet Plan with Contract it's $79.99 per month x 24 months = $1,919.76+ $180 (the cost of the phone) =2,099.76 for the year. For the individual 500 minutes Talk/Text/Internet without a 2 year contract it's $59.99 per month x 24 months + 530 for the phone = $1,969.76. Like I said I think I will be with Nexus One for quite a while, I was with Iphone for a full 2years and to me this seems a little better than the Iphone, so the question is, do I really want to save that $130 for the year, and pay that $530 up front, or pay least and save money now.....hmmmm....HELP
