    I'm sure attius will post about his affinity for Blackberry (NOT) cussing But he has some clients that are continually pissed about their blackberry. He's a much bigger fan of the windows phones. I personally have a crzr...course I only use my phone for (wait for it) A PHONE. Okay occasionally I send naked pictures to attius' phone, but that's it. bootyshake

    I have AT&T and the iPhone. I love my phone. One of my best purchases ever. I hate the coverage though. If a majority of my family and friends weren't with AT&T and I didn't like the iPhone so much I would go with Verizon.

    Just make sure he doesn't leave it in a McDonald's Wink : BBC News: McDonald's sued over nude photos


    Anyway, I have Verizon. It's nice because my in-laws (whom I actually love and get along with very well) have it too, so calls home to them are free. And I get great coverage compared to other providers I've used in the past. My phone is an LG Chocolate, just because it was free with my plan. It's fine, but the touch screen acts a little funny sometimes and I don't really use it for the features it has (playing music being the main one--I'd rather just use my iPod). But it's a vast improvement over my old phone, which died after about 2 minutes of talking on it, despite being fully charged. Razz

    I have an LG chocolate too! Also only because it was free. I really don't like it much. I wish I went with something else now. I've only had it a few months so I can't really get a new phone right now without extending the damn contract or paying a bunch of money. Razz Not a good idea right before the holidays.

    AT&T - Blackberry Curve 8300

    Waiting to see how the reviews are for the Storm before I make my move. I am most interested in the battery life. I need only charge my Curve once every 5 days or so.

    I have personal cell phone that's an LG something or other. Does web, pictures and a punch of other junk that I don't need or want. I just wanted a phone but this is the lowest end I could get.

    I also have a Blackberry Curve 8300 that I got when I took my new position. cussing It was not an option. I had managed to avoid being stuck with a Crackberry for the last years. It's not a phone, it's an electronic leash.

    Both are on Verizon.

    Fortunately, I get within a couple of miles of my home and getting a signal is like winning the lottery. I can three bars in one spot of the house, move 6 inches and I get zip. Move back to the original spot and I might or might not get a signal again.

    I Have Verizon, with an i760 as well.

    I have absolutly 0 complaints about my phone, it is simply awsomeness...

    I take it you do not have to make the blackberry shit work, or your company has a BES server.. Blackberry's are a complete piece of shit to support.. I know I hates them so much...

    Windows phones work like Awsomeness...
    I won't give up my phone unless they come out with a 640x480 phone display for verizon so I can run Citrix session in a native resolution without a pan and scan..

    Trust me sir, You have perfection in your hands for now, there is simply nothing better in verizion, or the major carriers at this time. I am excluding the Iphone, it has so many issues, and I don't live in a Mac world, I live in a world where business gets done. It aint pretty but it gets done.

    I do have some things you should get for your phone if you don't already have, like SPB+.. its awsome.

    Yeah, that was the link I posted. They left it in a McDonald's and then blamed whatever employee got the photos (or something like that). Lesson is: if you're going to have nude photos on your cell, don't leave it anywhere, and if you do, make sure it's password-protected!

    I'm waiting for the trojans to go out on PDA cells. I'm sure there have already been some, but now with everyone connected to the internet via hot spots, I'm sure there is an individual waiting for you to browse to his site so that he can upload your contact, picture, and other information to his own personal database.

    I am not sure about the google project yet, give it time..

    As to the blackberry.. I fully expect that to be a dead technology in 5 years time..

    Seen any palm pilots lately? How about PDA's that are not phones?

    Yep that will be blackberry.. They have nothing unique going for them, one of the most difficult solutions to impliment more then one of.. and ohh yeah they want 10-20$ for month to use their network to send you your email. I could go on and on for sure but this is the future as I see it

    1) Windows phones
    2) Iphones
    3) google phones if it kicks off very slow start in my opinion on the 2nd worst network in the country not a good start..
    4) the rest..

    Iphones may beat windows phones but there is a 0% chance of that so long as at&t are the only carriers..

    I know the I760 is almost 2 years old but there just aint nothing better atm, and nothing better coming that I have seen or heard of for the next several months...

    I just downloaded divx mobile, a buddy of mine coppied wanted, and the Xfiles Avis over to my micro sd card, and OMG the movies play crystal clear, nice wide screen format.. there is some stuttering but who cares.. Do that on a blackberry... oh you can't!!...

    This brings up my only gripe with the iPhone...the download and load times on the supposedly fastest 3G network in the world. /ranton...Just ignore the fact that they are one of the only truly global cellphone companies out there. And use that to pad their numbers in a very deliberate way. They talk about having the best coverage in the world, but they fail to mention that their service in the US is shoddy at best. I really do like the fact that I can use my phone almost anywhere in world, but the only reason I even got AT&T was by default when they bought Cingular. My family was all on Cingular so I went that way too for the free moble-to-moble. Anyways..../rantoff

    Anyone know what carrier has the fastest 3G, or mobile broadband, or w/e you want to call it? For the iPhone to get as big as it can, it needs to move to a faster connection. At least until WiFi is everywhere.

    I hate to say it because I don't want to sounds like a fan boi.. but Verizon has the fastest, and most available networking in north America.. I am not speaking from watching tv, but as the guy that always gets a signal (Except at my house WTF!!! cussing ) when others do not.

    I know that the EVDO network was giving out up to 3mb of speed 2 years ago before they locked it down to 1.5 max. I know people that have net-gear routers with a verizon PCMCIA card in them that use it as their soul Internet connection, and they get 750-T1 speed connections all the time..

    EVDO 2.0 is much faster, of course I believe they are still rolling out 1.A.. but none the less Verizon has the best network

    at&t: Most common network type on the planet, sim cards, Iphones.. shitty network
    sprint: super shitty network, similar technology to at&t actually.. Cheapest plans cause they have the least to offer
    T-mobile: lol wasn't this part of sprint? hardly a step above sprint barely a national carrier..
    Verizon: its Network technology is used almost no where else so nearly no international appeal, unless you have very specific phone models. Prices are higher then the other networks imho, not a lot but enough.. their full data rate plan for my I-760 hurts.. They also have some the poorest phone model selections as they seem to get them about 1 year after other carriers, (I am thinking of things like the HTC Mogul, from att, and Verizon) probably because make 1 phone cover off sprint,att,tmobile by changing the color of the plastic case, Verizon all different radio guts.

    So depends on what you want.. Cheap ok coverage, sprint... Wear a lot of mach turtlenecks, numberless watches thin framed glasses, greased back very short hair with ugly comfortable shoes, and like macs.. att... Speed network everywhere, willing to pay more Verizon..
