I have to agree with jinx as far as tha blackberry goes! Not only does it have all of the features he mentioned but it also has the pin# which allows free messeges if you don't have unlimited texting and lets not forget about the blackberry messenger!

thanks everyone! I was kind of leaning toward a blackberry curve 8900 but with no personal experience with one I wasn't for sure.
I've always had either motorolas or nokias both of which are good phones my biggest problem now is although there is nothing wrong with my razr I can't see the display.
It's been a sturdy phone even though it's a 1st generation and the reviews weren't that great for it I've not had any problems with it, my vision is just getting worse..old age lol
The only thing I don't like is no memory slot and can only have a limited # of ringtones

I have a Sanyo pro700 its a military issue bare bones no camera phone. Its rough and tough and takes a beating. It has the best antenna for better reception and that is what I was looking for. It has GPS plus an excellent speaker and microphone. It has one of the best battery life as welll It does get the Internet but I don't use it or text messaging. I wanted a phone to get and make calls.
We are in the boonies so reception was my main goal. It hasn't let me down yet.
To bubblegum- I rarely hear them called "mobiles" anymore. Most people call them either "blackberry" if that's what it is or just "cell"

Mine looks exactly like this-

the phrase posted by the poster that said "the fancier the phone, the crapier it will be" is totally not true. I have the LG Dare from Verizon. It's a full touch screen with QUERTY keyboard and the upright format. As well as Bluetooth and an actual built in 3.2 megapixel camera with a flash feature. The internet is great on it and I would recommend it to anyone.

I had the LG Chocolate (the second version) and it was great, except for the fact that the lights on the outside went out within the first year :/

BUT I totally recommend anything from Verizon. It truly does have service everywhere. I have yet (in my 4 years of having the service) to get the "no signal" sign
