    Default Lets talk phones

    iPhone or Blackberry?

    This is strictly for personal purposes. Personal email, web surfing, etc. I currently have Verizon and love their service/reception. Tell me how you feel about your bill versus your satisfaction. Size, usability, cost, etc.

    Not sure if I can mention the Palm Pre Plus on this thread, but I got one a couple months ago and I love it. It still has a few bugs to be worked out by Palm and Verizon, but overall, it's fantastic. The best thing about it is the multi-tasking. I can move around and do things just like a PC. And I am totally satisfied with Verizon's service and coverage. I played with the Droid at the store and it was very impressive, but the Pre's multi-tasking was what sold me.

    I'm a die-hard iPhone fan. I've got a 3GS and love it. The GPS works great, paired up with EveryTrail app and you've got a great tool for hiking. Also if you geocache there's great apps for it.

    I am very tempted to get an iPhone when I can update. (I'd have to...my bf converted me to the ChurchofMac)

    To sidetrack a bit, my bf is getting the iPad.....we may trail test it in May when we go up Washington

    I recently got the Google Nexus One. Gotta love a phone with a 1ghz processor.
    This thing has more power than the first 3 desktop computers I owned combined.

    quick answer is that I'd go with the blackberry as I'm very happy with mine

    But, but but nowdays plans cost to much ($30 for blackberry plan + voice plan cost of $40+ish).

    However, laptops are getting so small and cheap that I'm leaning to having a basic text/voice paln (if not just prepaid voice minutes) for the basic cell phone (of course home phone was gone 10 years ago), and then going with the wireless card ($39.99) for the laptop/web access. Probably saves few $100 per year

    My Lenovo laptop has the AT&T cell card built in. So, I have multiple profiles to connect at different places. One of them is to connect to AT&T.
