I love cell phones. It’s no secret. My friends know this and make fun of me for it. It’s how my love of gadgetry started. When someone tells me they got a new phone, I HAVE to play with it. Yea, it’s rude, but I am a junkie looking for a fix. Nothing annoys me more when people say “it’s the blue one, by T-Mobile”. NO, it’s SO MUCH more than that.
Let us start from when I first signed with T-Mobile in June of 2007 shall we?
The Sidekick ID
This phone was, well, crap. Hard to use, bad reception. I was disappointed with it all together. It was my first phone with a QWERTY keyboard. It was good for texting and that was about it. I never understood how Perez Hilton ran his site from that damn thing. I took it back within my 14 days. Which leads us too….
The HTC Dash
This phone was also crap. I am rough on phones, but not so rough that I go threw T-Mobiles “3 chances and then a new phone” policy. Every phone had a different problem. From the screen just going out, to constant errors to draining the battery. I told them to keep it.
The Blackberry 8700
This is where my love affair with BlackBerry started. I LOVE me some RIM. This was a GREAT phone, no it didn’t have a camera, but I had a digital and it was easy to load pictures on it. I was about to get on the internet, and pretty fast. It was a great happy little phone. So much so someone had to steal it from me, out of my purse at Space Center Houston. ON the day of J’s surprise birthday party. Freakin A.
The Nokia 6131
If I ever go back to a standard phone it would be this one. Had a great camera and battery life. Was very easy to use and had a tough outer shell (rubber). When people are looking for non-PDA phones I will always recommend this one.
The BlackBerry 8900
It’s a good little Berry, not my favorite of the bunch, but still good. I have issues with the roller ball, I have hyerhidrosis of the hands (sexy huh?). And that caused some problems. The screen resolution is great, AWESOME camera. I only needed my digital for those far off shots. And it has an external memory.
Yea, that’s a lot of phones! And if the rumors are true about T-Mobile filing bankruptcy (I haven’t had a chance to research this yet), chances are I will be getting another new phone. We have been looking for an excuse to go to AT&T since J get’s a discount. If T-Mobile will go to Verizon, I will make that jump. I love Verizon, they have some of the best CS and I am kicking my butt for not staying with them!
So, tell me about your phones, like I said, I am a gadget freak so I LOVE this kinda talk.
