What kind of phone should I get?
 
So for my birthday last year I decided to break down and get a CUTE phone for once and I ended up getting a Motorola Pebl. Very fun phone! My friend and her mom both had them and loved them.... until the screen broke. Then my screen broke. And no one in town will fix them because they break so frequently. Sigh.... it's technically still under warranty but it'll take Motorola at least SIX WEEKS to get it back to me!! (no thanks)

SOOooo... I'm back on a hunt for a new phone! Any ideas anyone?

Here are my requirements:

1. Not wanting to spend an arm and a leg. Seriously, I'm not looking for something fancy..

2. Must have a calculator and calender. (I have weird phone needs)

3. Must be able to fit comfortably in the pocket of my breeches while riding (unfortunately RAZRs are too wide)

4. Camera is nice, but not required.

5. I'd like for it to be cute, but not required.

6. I have a sim card

7. MUST BE DURABLE! (it's going to get dropped in the sand or barn aisle a lot)


any ideas? advice on what or what NOT to get?

I have the LG Shine in red, and i LOVE IT!. It has a calculator (even a tip calculator), a calendar, and it looks great. The screen turns into a mirror when you arent using the phone, which really does come in handy. It has great battery life, even for a texting fanatic like me. It has a 2 megapixel camera, which is a lot better than most phones I've seen/had. It's not as wide as a razor, its a pretty good size. It requires a sim card (I have AT&T) and it doesnt look to durable but IT IS! I cant tell you how many times i've dropped it and screamed lol. It still looks brand new and I've had it for 5 months! here is a pic:

Don't get a RAZR... I have one and am almost literally counting down the days until I can get a new phone with a new plan.

Yeah i have heard that Razrs are crappy phones and they break easy

IPHONE! Do not settle for anything less. You just can't beat the iPhone. I am going from my current carrier to a totally different just to get it on the 11th.

Yes, IPhones are very cool but I believe they're a little higher then what I'm looking to spend for a hopefully cute phone/calculator/calender with a possible camera. I'll look into the Shines! And I hear Razrs break a lot too. Anyone else have any other ideas?

I do prefer the flip phones as well, I tend to scratch screens easily (i'm telling you, i'm tough on phones!) but i'm not opposed to a non-flip.

whatever you do DON"T buy an LG Shine. they break and scratch easily so if you are planning to drop it in the arena its not worth it.

I would stick with the motorola. Best quality phone out there. I have gone with different makes and have had one problem or another but every time I go with motorola I have no problems.

I have had different motorola phones over the years and currently working with the Rzor. I have no complaints about it. The camera quality is good, the speakers are fantastic-one of the few phones that has a loud ring as well as loud speakerphone.

The battery life is quite good and the phone itself is easy to use. My only complaint is the look of it. Never liked it. It can't be perfect :lol:
