What Phone to Get?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
So i am on verizon.. have been for like 4 years. I really don't care WHAT service I use as long as its the best price/quality ratio.

Right now I have the moto Q (original silver) but the phone freaking craps out on me every 4-5 months so im done with it. My verizon plan also ends in a month so im thinking of scrapping it...

why?
I pay $110 (that includes taxes, its a 99 bill) for unlimited pics/videos/txts, unlimited data and 450 minutes. Honestly i need a LOT more minutes and i just dont like the email on the Q.

So what phone / service should I get??? I'm going to be using a lot more minutes now and I HAVE to have 1-2 email accounts on my phone at all times. the moto q just doesn't do it for me.

im gonna ask the obvious. should i get the iphone? I do need to use the internet too. I have skyfire for windows mobile 5. (a browser that allows flash videos etc) but it makes my phone lag (processor isnt fast enough).


would a windows mobile 6.1 phone make up for it??

Internet is important, must have great email and of course need more minutes on a better plan. Someone told me tmobile might be good then jailbreak the iphone. said for 120 he has unlimited minutes / txt / data.

3g support is pretty important to me as well, carrier as well as phone.

If you want the iPhone you need to wait till July 11 for 3G support, which I would suggest you do anyway since its half the price of the 2G.


Although I've never really understood why anyone would want so much on their phone. Personally I would just get a simple phone with text and maybe pictures and a netbook.

The new iphone's lowest cost plan also cost $10 more a month than the first gen iphone. Also AT&T's 3g service is spotty.

well im in a band and we're touring like ALL the time. i have to keep in contact w our managers, our label, lawyer, business manager, promoter, tour manager, etc. thats just for touring. doesnt include anything personal so i DEFINITELY need a phone that has internet capabilities as well as a great email management system and the faster the phone, the better.
