I need a new cell phone!

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
It's time for me to get a new cell phone! (Some of you may remember a few months back when Fosters destroyed my pink razr) Anyways, i've been using my really old blue nokia for a while now and it is time to replace it and also i'm now eligable to join my husbands cell plan. We're going to do My Favs. from T-mobile- so it needs to be a phone compatiable with that.

Any recommendations???? Only requirements for me is: Camera, My Favs. Capable, and decient amount of talk time also. I'd like a music phone too but it doesn't have to be!!

You could go blackberry (I'd love one! that is my "wish" phone for the internet usage). I have two phones from two providers, but they are both Samsung flip phones with camera, nothing fancy, but they get the job done .

You could also go Apple I-phone? or a new razer phone, I'm just throwing out names... I know little about phones. Usually by the time I learn all the phone's cool features, the two years are up and I get a new phone. But good luck!

I have the Blackberry Pearl & I love it It has everything you'd ever need from a phone. It has a great camera, music downloads, internet, it comes pre-loaded with Yahoo Messenger, MSN messenger, Facebook & a lot more!

That must just be your company because I have a blackberry pearl and it doesn't come pre-loaded with any messengers you have to download them all.

I would not recommend a blackberry pearl. I am on my third one since March. I do love the camera in it, it works really well. I am thinking about getting an LG Rumour.

I would also recommend the Apple I-phone. I have one and I love it. It has a touch screen (which is much more easy to navigate than those tiny buttons).

It has an awesome camera - SUPER clear and easy to use. It also works great as a music phone because its a combined phone/ipod. It comes with headphones and I listen to it everyday on my way to work.

The contact list is really organized. You make a list of favorites (the people you call most) a co-worker list, family, friends, etc.

Its a little expensive but now that the next generation has came out, a lot of people are selling their old ones gently used on ebay. Just a thought, if you're on a budget.

Good luck!

Thanks for the suggestions everyone!!! I'm planning on stopping by the local store tomorrow to check out a few in person and see which ones i like best. We're going to order which ever one i decide on online so we get a better deal though. The iPhone looks neat- but it's more costly than i'm planning on spending right now so i'm looking for something i guess under $100.

I most likely will not get another Razr as i had tons of problems with my old one (before the Aussie ate it even). I loved the size and thinness of it- but it was overall just crappy. I went through 3 replacements.

I love how reliable my old blue nokia has been- it've had it for YEARS and it has been the most reliable phone ever -so i definitely am a nokia fan- but i'm interested in other brands as well!!!

I think i found one i like!!!! It's the Nokia 5310 Xpress Music - does anyone else have this phone? Do you like it???

(i know in the reviews it says the talk time is only 3 hours, but if you don't play music constantly- it should be considerably longer according to some of the good reviews i've seen.)

it has really good ratings too! http://www.phonescoop.com/phones/use...php?phone=1342 http://www.letstalk.com/reviews/revi...Id=1448&rNav=2

I really like that it's affordable with the plan we have, has a similar lay out to my old Nokia that i like a lot, has a camera and speaker phone setting, has a lot of other features too!! What do you guys think???

A quick tip, when buying just about anything - go to google and type in the name and model of the product and "problems".

Well, after reading a bunch of reviews and looking in the store- we decided to order this one: Nokia 5310 Xpress Music (the one i was origionally looking at). I really like it! We went back home and ordered online yesterday. It's supposed to get here today. I liked it a lot because of the features and also the price.
