Cell Phone advice.

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Well I talked to this one dude, and he said all phones besides Motorola suck (insert a bad word here). So I dunno about him, so I need some adivce!

I have to go with verizon because my parents are paying the monthly fee but I can still get the phone I want.

I have $125.00 as the ABSOLUTE MAXIMUM I can spend.

I am looking at these phones

G'zOne Type-V

Looks cool, but I don't know if casio makes good cell phones?

Samsung SCH-u740 Black
http://www.verizonwireless.com/b2c/s...edPhoneId=2951
Looks good, and has a keyboard going for it.

LG enVâ„¢
http://www.verizonwireless.com/b2c/s...edPhoneId=2694
Dose LG make a quality phone? Has a keyboard too. (out of my price tho but maybe i can barrow some $?)

So out of all of those phones witch one sucks the least amount? Also have some plz?

PS:Yeah I was gone for a while I accidentally deleted my bookmarks and forget about this place till now.

Working for RadioShack and having the majority of our focus on cellular sales I can definitly tell you that whoever told you all phones "suck" unless they are motorola is eithar,
a.) extremely biased
b.)a complete moron

For a fact I can tell you the best cell phones you can get are Sanyos.
They are top quality and durability. The call quality is exceptional and most of 'em look pretty cool to boot.
I'm kinda partial to Sprint, but Verizon can get the job done. The only issue is the fact that Sanyo phones are exclusive to Sprint.
But don't take my word for it. Look around the net and read some professional reviews, beacause to this day I have yet to actually find a Motorola phone I actually like enough to get.

I'd go with the enV.

1. It has the QWERTY keyboard, keys spaced for easy usage
2. The sound quality is great and it uses micro SD cards for music/videos.
3. It's got stereo speakers on it that sound good.
4. 2.0MP Camera
5. It's built at a very high quality, but also is light.
6. It's LG!

do a poll. I like the last two, I'd chose the Env myself.

Short reviews can be found on Cnet

My favorite phones are Audiovox. I had one for 2 years and never had a problem with it. I dropped it, kicked it, threw it across a gym, sat on it, SWAM with it... just about everything that should have destroyed it didn't.

The enV isn't a bad option, but like I said look around. Here is a CNET review I found for it. http://reviews.cnet.com/cell-phones/...-32160881.html.
I did get a chance to play with one of these the other night and they are pretty nifty, not sure on the price though. Not sure if it's in your range or not.

Ok thanks everyone, I have made my decision!

I am gonna get the samsung, it is in my price range, it has the keyboard thing going for it, the SD card slot and stuff is cool. The LG is nice but costs too much. So I am getting the samsung w00t!
