Calling Your Advice

image by Mark Shaw found here

My Verizon contract is up.  I'd like a new phone.  Any suggestions?  Blackberry, Droid, iPhone?  What kind of phone/carrier do you use?

  1. Ooh, I posted Audrey today too!! :)

    And I use Verizon...I REALLY want an Iphone, but I love Verizon too much to give it up (crossing my fingers for them to make a new marriage :)

  2. I LOVE my iPhone. Like, may never use another phone LOVE. Which is very odd for me because I'm usually a commitment phobe when it comes to brands and technology.

  3. Verizon is getting the new 4G iphone in the summer if you stay with them.

  4. I like Verizon but that is b/c my whole family is on it.

    Hey what day do you teach the girls from our ward?? Can I come and observe one day?? I just think it would be fun. Or even maybe teach one day???

  10. No question. IPhone. If you are quite a visual person then you'll love it. You'll be able to do everything on the iPhone that you could do on your pc and the contracts are not that expensive. Make sure your carrier has great coverage though.

  11. I use AT&T and my contract has been up for a while, but I just hate all the phones out right now!

  12. I have a Blackberry Storm. I would advise that you NOT get that phone -- I've had a lot of problems with it. If you want a Blackberry, get one with a keypad. I love the iPhone and I haven't played with the Droid yet. I think one big decision is who do you call the most and what carrier has the best plan for you. My entire family, my boyfriend, his family, and most of my friends are on Verizon, so it seems silly for me to get anything else (I'm also currently on my parents' family plan -- a grad school gift so I don't have to worry about cell phone bills each month).

  13. I use verizon b/c my family has it, too. I have a blackberry AT&T phone for work, and I love it. But of course the iphones are pretty cool, too.

  15. Whatever you do, do NOT turn to T-Mobile. I'm about to say bye bye to those suckers and also on the lookout for a new company.

  16. I LOVE my I-phone! For me the best part...never having to go to a verizon store again! (equivalent of the dmv)

  17. I've got the same problem - iphone or blackberry. Everyone who has an iphone (including commentators here) say they LOVE it; but my family thinks the iphone wouldn't be for me. (Or are they just trying to save me from spending money?!?) In any case, I'm stuck with my 15 year old Nokia.

  18. found your blog over at Wild and Precious, and it's fabulous! Dancing once was a passion of mine as well...

    And as for the phone, please let us know which kind you get and give us an honest review! I'm *almost* up too, and have yet to decide on a new phone, though my Env2 proved faithful until it got ran over by a car. sad times.

  19. I'm not a huge fan of my service with AT&T but my iphone is to die for. I love it.I can't imagine having any other kind of phone every again. Even my 13 month old can unlock it, open an app and play her game. It's just the best!

  20. iphone all the way! And At&t is GREAT , especially if you stick to them. IN last 10 years we've been with t-mobile, sprint and at't, I love at't the most because not only they have a GREAT coverage - I've NEVER been in place where there was no reception, which I cannot tell for either t-mobile or sprint , especially sprint, since we've experienced the "supposed to have " coverage, but absolute blank on the phone. ANd PLUS at't has wonderful customer service. I've saved a lot of money on the phone bill even at the times when it WAS my fault that bigger then I thought it should be ( like not paying attention to what plan I had over what i THOUGHT I had :) ), and the plans that they have are awesome. And then the whole part of Iphone - don't even get me started on that :) I was mac converted with my macbook , but with the iphone ( and i started from the original) , I am a complete mac lover. ,Iphone is THE BEST thing out there. I would not be able to function. IF you are busy, on the go, want to stay tuned - it's for you. THis was the only way I could do modeling, dance and shows while on the go. I don't do "phone conversations, but email is the way to get everything done properly. Plus, all the agents prefer emails over the phones. So, definitely , Iphone.

  25. OH GOD. i am using a phone from a former boyfriend. he gets it for free, so he just lets me use it. i know that isn't the best situation, but it is nice to have a free phone. and every time i sit down and think i should get my own phone, i face the same annoying decision you are trying to make. i HATE this kind of stuff. i don't want to shop around. i don't want to go into those AWFUL stores where they try to sell to you and upgrade packages and blah blah blah. and i really don't want to pay what they charge now-a-days.

    and i am sorry -- this comment is 100% useless!

  26. iPhone. Can't go wrong. Just don't drop it like I did recently -- shattered the screen and had to get a brand new one. Sigh. And yet still, it's worth it...

  33. I absolutely ADORE my iPhone but in the northeast the AT&T service is spotty at best.... Most of my friends/family have Verizon w/ their Blackberries. Heard that Verizon might get an iPhone though?

  34. iPhone, ATT. I cannot be without it.

  35. I got a Blackberry Tour from US Cellular last November and LOVE it!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. I have a BlackBerry myself. I've heard great things about the iPhone, but I don't like touchscreens - something about all the fingerprints bothers me. Also...AT&T is honestly the BEST carrier - amazing customer service!! :)

  37. That picture of Audrey is gorgeous!
    I don't quite know what to suggest to you. I usually take whatever comes in my plan.

  38. I have a Blackberry with AT&T and I love it! Lots of great additional features too!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Hmm good question! I love my blackberry- its my baby, but I've always always wanted a iphone too. Too many good apps on the iphone! But I also like to have my phone not be my WHOLE existence and life and I think I'd just get way way WAY too carried away with the iphone. Haha!

    Let us know what you decide!
