    nope. you get her a smartphone (droid or droid eris, i'm assuming) it will raise her monthly bill another $30. no way around it.

    That's easy. Just pay the $30 monthly charge for her data plan. Or is it not that serious a relationship?

    Buy her some lingerie, at least you can enjoy it too and it will be less expensive. :)

    lingerie FTW! but seriously, if you think she will love the phone and be okay with the data plan it might be a good idea :)

    Don't do it! Youd lock her up for two years. what if you nly last for 6 months? She will curse you for the next 18 months. And if one thing starts to go wrong she will try to hold this against you as well.

    Buy her a hamster and a postsecret book.

    Most marriages don't last the 2 years of commitment that you are thinking of getting into. Buy her a non-commitable gift!

    If you buy the phone and it's in YOUR name on YOUR plan and you break up....bad things can happen with that :)
