Looking to get first smartphone (Canada)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey all so i am currently using a razr v3 and i think its about time i upgraded. Right now I am leaning more toward an android phone. Also I will most likely be getting a contract with rogers or telus. Please leave any suggestions here

I highly recommend staying away from Telus. Rogers is the lesser of two evils here. I personally have used Telus, Rogers, Solo and Virgin. I recommend Virgin as long as you don't mind not having the very latest phone (and by the sounds of your v3 you don't. )

I have been with Virgin for a little over two years and I have had nothing but positive experience with customer service. Check out the Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant. (Yes the Galaxy SII is coming soon but it won't be available on Virgin at first.)

If you do go with Rogers, I recommend looking at the Xperia Arc. My sister got one a few weeks back and it is running 2.3.1 right now. It has a gorgeous display and is very responsive. The media player is lacking a bit if you are used to the user interface of an iPhone/iPod however.

I know when I am looking for a new phone and provider I always get so flustered. To many pros and cons for each provider, so I wish the best of luck to you. Hopefully I have helped a little bit though.

Good choice, although pretty much anything out there will blow your mind compared to your current phone. O_o

odd, rogers(fido) and bell(virgin/solo) are terrible in ontario, telus is like the golden goose at least from my experience with the bunch. but either way there's a lot of nice phones about to hit here lg optimus black, atrix is already out, galaxy sII great options all spread across the board.
