  • Looking to get a new cell phone

    I've got a Sony Ericsson T226 thats been really good to me over the last 2 years. I've got tons of ringtones and I have been able to have many custom images on the phone. I haven't had many problems at all with the phone but since I am finally eligible for an upgrade, I've been looking for the hell of it. Theres so many phones out there, I'm not even sure whats the best. Some things I'm looking for in a phone:

    MP3 ringtones
    Speakerphone
    decent battery life (talk time)
    wireless internet

    camera phone isn't necessary but I'm sure I'd use it if I had it.

    any recommendations?

    BTW, I've got cingular if that matters.

        Holy skeet batman!!!

        Does anyone have one of those things?
        I know maybe not that one, but one of the phones where you can do the web, and all the shit that one can?
        I'd love to hear if they are worth it, and what they can do.

          i have some friends who work for sprint. they have tried this phone. some like it, some don't. it depends on what you use it for. From what I understand - its a good phone especially considering it has WiFi included.

          It is expensive though. My wife has a blackberry under Sprint PCS and their internet browsing is great. Good download speeds etc. However coverage is sporadic here in Vermont for Sprint. I am sure coverage is far better in Missouri and midwest area.

            I'd love to be able to browse and post from work, I think a blackberry would be enough, but is that phone that much more than a blackberry?

              yeah i think that phone is miles ahead of a blackberry.

              blackberry is quite frustrating for me in many ways. 1) lousy email setup. 2) no free AIM software. If you want one - its complicated and cost money.

              Blackberrys are great if you work for a company that has the enterprise server behind it and has the money to support it.

              if not - then forget it. too cumbersome and expensive for private use. hence its popularity with corporations.

              that phone looks ideal for home use. it just came out (Monday the 19th) so its still a bit early. My friends who all work at Sprint have said good things. There were a few negative comments but I can't remember off the top of my head right now.

              I would wait a little bit - 2 to 4 months and watch the reviews come in and see.

                If you go to Print, and just go to the phone list for my area under personal, and not business it doesn't show that bad boy [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/sad.gif[/img]

                I am going to go into the office tomorrow and check on it.

                I have been "out of contract" with Sprint for some time now, so I can sign up for a new plan and get the discount on new phones, I just wonder what service on that sucker is gonna cost.

                But it looks like a bad ass.

                  well it is slated to be released on the 19th which is now.

                  so it'll show up eventually over the course of the day I am sure.
