Default New phone advice!

My cell is almost 5 years old. I have a huge hardware upgrade credit with my provider, so I'm going to take advantage.

My current phone is a cheap Samsung (think $30, with nothing extra), so I'm going to be moving WAY up LOL.

I am looking at iPhone and Blackberry, I haven't really considered anything else. What do you have, and what do you love about it?

I had a Blackberry, and I loved it.
I now have an iPhone, and I love it.

Before either of those, I stuck with Nokia phones. I really liked them.

I had a Blackberry and loved it. Upside: it did everything I needed and more. Downside for me: I thought the OS was a little tricky to get used to until I figured out how to run it. I didn't feel like everything was intuitive I guess.

Now I have a Motorola Droid and I love, love, love it! It does everything, there are tons of free apps for it, it's FAST and pretty user-friendly.

Have fun deciding!

I'd check too on the hardware upgrade credit..here you have to pay for the iPhone even if you have an upgrade credit, etc but the blackberry is covered..go figure. If it's a $$$ thing i'd make sure the iPhone is covered first

I'm no help, I just wanted to join the others with ancient phones.

I desperately need a new one, mine turns itself off, the wireless always turns off, and it crashes if I try ad use the camera, not that I do use it much, lol. I want an iPhone, but don't do contacts and it's far too expensive to buy on pay as you go.

LMAO ditto...mine doesn't have a camera, it texts, but it just has the old T9. It does not get on the internet, does nothing special.

Meg, I'll check on the hardware upgrade, I was just assuming it would work no matter what. I will have a hard time convincing DH I need an iPhone if I have to pay full price for it.

My husband brought me home a fancy phone from work to try out and I refused to use it! Mine is constantly getting wet too, even my battery pack was a bit corroded from getting wet I just scrapped it off and popped it back in and it still works fine. LOL

I'm getting an iPhone next month. My upgrade gets me a 50% discount on one instead of being applied to the whole amount (which is super cheesy if you ask me, like AT&T hasn't been getting loads of money from me for years). I need a new mp3 player as well as a new phone since they have both developed battery charging issues among other things & even if I have to pay $100 it just makes more sense to get one device rather than 2 and I'd have to pay at least $100 toward the mp3 player.

Plus I'm looking forward to being able to say "Oh I have an app for that!"

that's new..when i got mine last year I had to pay for the phone even though I was upgrade eligible (well I wasn't but a line on my plan was) It wasn't a big deal to me since I had planned on buying one anyways but nice that you can get a discount on it!

We upgraded to Blackberry Curve 8900's at the beginning of December and I do love mine. We really wanted iPhone's but even though we've been with AT&T for like 5.5 years our upgrade price was still $199ea which is ridiculous since that's the same price my younger brother paid for his when we added him as a new line on our family plan in January. We were able to get our BB's on a Cyber Monday deal for only $.01ea so we paid a whopping $0.02 vs. $400 lol! According to my account my line is eligible for a "full discount" on an iPhone upgrade on 12/1 so I guess I'll see what their idea of a full discount is then!

DH has the newer Blackberry Curve (just upgraded from an older BB curve last month I think). I know he loves it. I have an LG Lotus that I just got about 6 months ago. It's not a smart phone but I can look stuff up pretty quick, check email, google reader. Not a lot of apps out there that I'm interested in for it so that's the biggest downside I've found...but it was a "free" upgrade option that did what I needed....plus I love the keyboard on it. I really really want a droid phone so I'm hoping next time I'm eligible for a phone it's in our price range.

I just got the BlackBerry Bold 9700 and I LOVE it. It's a HUGE upgrade from the Curve 8310. 3G, WIFI, lots of internal memory, 3MP camera, new slick trackpad (vs trackball). It just works!

I have a Motorola Cliq (TMobile) but ATT has a new one that's essentially the same thing, the Motorola... Flip? Backflip? Something like that. Anyway I LOVE my phone, and I love that almost all of the apps are FREE on the Droid network!

I have a Blackberry Storm upgraded from the 8330 that I love. DH has the new Curve and he's totally addicted now too . Anyway, there are some cool apps for the bb too. You can check out Blackberry App World to get an idea of some of what's out there for it.

I think it is because the phone that is eligible is the one we've had since we got the account 4-5 years ago. The other phone (that we have had 18 months) is eligible for an upgrade also but with no discount applied on the iPhone though a bunch of others are free.
