Need to get new mobile phone! help me pick!

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,
I currently have a Motorola Razor V3m. It's more than a year old at this point and is starting to crap out on me. It serves me well, I'm only a senior in high school, so I only need the basic stuff. Verizon compatible please...
I do text a lot, but i dont really use the web at all. A longer battery life would be great. Let me know what you guys think of.
Links would be useful!!

Thats funny, when I saw the title I was going to recommend a RAZR V3 (I've got Verizon too). I just got one, and I'm pretty happy with it.
Before that, I had a Samsung SCH-A670, which was amazing. I dropped it from over 10 feet onto hard ground at least fifteen times, and it never had a problem. Unfortunately, it was no match for the washing machine. They are not made anymore, but it is not too hard to find used ones.
At the Verizon store, I was actually amazed at how much the quality of phones has dropped since I got the Samsung around 4 years ago.
The only other one I saw and likes was the Samsung SCH u-740. It is a little more expensive than the RAZR, but my friend got one at the same time I got a new phone, and he loves it.

How do you drop a phone from a height of ten feet on more than one occasion?

I do tech work for a couple of theaters when they put on plays. Poorly designed fly+old ladder+wobbly scaffolding+cell phone clipped in cheap holster= not a great combo.

Oh sweet.

I am videoing for a play here for my school. The theatre they picked is not very big at all and has no scaffolding at all, so the only option I have for a shot is from the perspective of the audience... =\\

Yeah i've heared good things about the SCH u-740, a couple of my friends have it. I like the setup. I'll seriously consider that phone. Any other suggestions?

And please stay on topic, dont spam my post...

Check out some Sony Ericsson phones. W810i, K550i, K800i are all about 200~ unlocked on ebay. I have the W810i now and it's just a awesome phone, dropped it many times and it's still working perfectly. I'm getting a K800i soon, such a amazing phone!

I have had the Samsung u600 for about 5 months now and it is a great phone.

It is a super slim slider and has a micro SD card slot and a great mp3 player - it has all the standard features as well. It seems to be pretty durable as I drop phones like its the cool thing to do. Great reception and UI.
