For the price, Nokia E62 is the shit (doesn't have a camera though), but the E63 does. Email ready, full QWERTY, big screen, AIM capable, music, pics, voice recorder, FLASH player, Real Player. You can create Presentations, Docs. The best part, you can be on the phone, text, surf the net, create a doc, listen to music, all at once (there's a button you hold and press that allows you to switch apps without losing your work). Not sure if VZW carries it though.

cons of the phone: It's wide, but fits perfectly in the palm of your hand.

I used to own the Q, and maybe my opinion of Motorola is just tainted, but I didn't think it was that nice (the Blackjack from Sprint blows it away). I currently own the xv6700 and would advise against it. The battery life is terrible if you do much of anything on it. My dad has the blackberry 8703 and loves it. just my

Shit, I have an old Treo 700 P you can have but it is a Sprint Phone - Find someone to unlock it and its yours - I loved it when I carried it for work and now the new gig has me on a Verizon Blackberry which I can't fuckin stand

Gotcha!!!!!! I'm with Verizon too, I've had the XV6700 but used it for a week only....I liked it but didn't want to go with the data plans. The best phone i had with them in the past was the V or LG VX9800, it was great for texting and media. I now have the TV phone but i miss the keyboard from the V. If you're thinking of the Samsung SCH-u740, i would jus get the enV instead.

I have carried sooooo many BB's that I have lost count - I hate the track wheel and loved the touch screen of the Treo

That is the one I have now...but the old one. Mine is almost 2 years old...so I waslooking to get something different.

If you want something really different from Verizon, do what i did and try out the LG VX9400. It's a pretty cool phone and you'll never get bored with it

I have the Q and it won't send or receive picture messages-not at least without having to turn the phone off and on like 3 times over a 24hr period and that's just to get the picture messages. I can't ever get it to send the picture messages anymore!!! Stupid Motorola phones... But Meech has or had this phone and I know she was having better luck with hers then I have had with mine!
