Help me pick a new phone =)

Help me choose a new phone lol

April 13th is my bday so I am going to be asking for money for a new cell phone.  My plan with shitty sprint is over April 16th.  Here are my options as far as phones go so anyone with these phones or know anything about them can you please give me your .02?

if I choose AT&T:
If I get internet - Blackberry Curve Red or the Iphone (if I get enough money)
No internet - the new sony walkman phone in pink

If I choose verizon:
Internet - Voyager
without - Venus

I am sticking with one or the other services.  My boyfriend has an iphone so I dont really need info on that, I love his phone.  I would like a good music phone if I dont get internet thats why I chose the walkman.  I never had experience with sony as a phone so anyone who knows anything about them please help me.  Also for the internet how is it on the blackberry and voyager.  I love the browsing on the iphone and I want something like that, how do those 2 phones compare to the iphone in the internet aspect.  Thanks for the help!

if anyone has pictures of any phones can you post them? 

Also picture quality on these phones how are they?

Re: Help me pick a new phone =)

i can help a good handfull... if your gonna compare iphone and voyager for the internet... iphone is way better...browsing wise...voyager is pretty good.. but iphone is just the little bit better...


+1 ATT cuz of the rollover.. if one month you dont talk all that much... it rolls over to the next over... all the minutes you pay for ... you get to keep...

+1 for verizon because the voyager flips open to txt... im more txt than internet... thats my reason... my friend has the iphone and txt is a [email protected]#$H compared to my full keyboard...

i like the iphone for the easy access to maps.. and youtube.. thats koo

I have a BB Curve and my mom has the Walkman. I love my BB and hate her Walkman, even without internet, if you go with ATT.

is there a reason you dont like the walkman? If you dont mind sharing?

For the Blackberry on the website it just gives you the $35 monthly pay data plan, do you just add that on to whatever minute plan? I will find these all out soon enough from the saleperson but with my experience those people dont know shit about what they sell and rip you off.

What does it look like on the voyager? Is it just text webpages or do you get what you see as if your on your laptop like the iphone does?


the only thing that would keep me from internet is if I can afford that extra a month, if I cant I dont want to commit to a BB or voyager and I would stick to a more basic phone.

Pick the phone that can make phone calls. All the other stuff is crap and just one more distraction while driving.

Hold the voyager and iPhone side by side. The iPhone is so much nicer. I'd go for it just on design alone. Also, they keep adding updates to the iPhone that keep making it better. I'm still impressed with the google maps update with turn by turn navigation. Web apps, iPod and so much more make it the way to go.

Re: Help me pick a new phone =)

Hands down you choose AT&T and the internet then get Blackberry Curve. No internet I would say the blackjack II. Blackjack II and Blackberry Curve are good phones without the internet. I don't know how good the Blackjack II would be with the internet. I've seen R/E houses pulled up on Blackberry's in seconds and they have great detail. I have some friends that are R/E agents.

Re: Help me pick a new phone =)

I think the IPhone is more of a phone to say hey I'm better than everyone else with this phone. I have prejudice towards the IPhone though. I say get the IPhone if you can't live without checking and updating Facebook and Myspace on a hourly basis. Blackberry and Blackjack are much more PROFESSIONAL phones.

^^ I'm already a professional. I don't need a phone to make me enhance my appearance.
