  • Need to get a new cellphone

    I'm getting a new phone in the next couple of days. Does anyone have any recommendations as to what phone/features to get. I still need to buy some stuff for my carputer so the phone can't be too pricey (don't want/need anymore financial setbacks to the project). I want to be able to hook the phone to the comp for internet, but I don't know whether that should be by bluetooth, usb or what. Anyways any opinions you guys have would be greatly appreciated.

    BTW I have T-Mobile

    How willing are you to switch providers? Because AT&T has the Nokia 6820 (the fold-open keyboard phone). It's like the 6800, only improved with tri-band (you can use it anywhere in the world), a camera, infrared, and Bluetooth. If you're a student, you can get it for half-price with service, so around 75 bucks. If you're willing to sign a 2-yr contract, you can have it for 50. Keep in mind, AT&T will become Cingular within a year or so.

        It is posted by kessler because I bought it from him but then I realized that it won't work in my area with cingular wireless.

          I would prefer not to get a used phone. Especially since you already have had problems using it in your area. I don't want to be stuck with a phone I can't use. I'd rather shell out a little more cash and get a new one + peace of mind. Thanks though.

                      I've had a P900 for about 4 months now. It took them several firmware updates to get bluetooth working right - but once you do that, the phone rocks.

                        Well, if you want to switch to AT&T or Cingular (keeping your current phone number obviously) you can get the new Moto V600 for only $149 after rebate from Best Buy. It's got all the latest stuff: Java, Bluetooth, etc. plus it's quad-band and comes unlocked (only from Best Buy). That means if you travel outside the states you can switch out the sim card without worries. My brother got it and loves it. I checked the phone out and it really is a nice phone. I'm planning to get it when my contract is up in a couple of months. Either that or one of the new high-speed Windows Smart Phones coming out soon.

                          Good choice... that's what I was going to recommend. I originally got a T610 with my T-Mobile plan, then swapped it for a Nokia 6610, then swapped that for a Siemens S55. Now I wish I had kept my original T610, because it had better bluetooth support than all of them, better signal, and good battery life.

                          BTW, that link for unlimited internet is only for prepaid service. If you sign up for a normal T-Mobile plan, you only have to pay $5/month for unlimited internet and you don't have to do all that garbage about refilling your card every month, etc. I use it all the time when I travel for free (slow) wireless internet access.
