I need a new phone....

Mine is currently in a 4 foot snowdrift somewhere behind a Best Western in Janesville, Wisconsin.

Any suggestions? I'm with AT&T. I can't upgrade so I'm going to have to just suck it up and buy the phone. I was sort of thinking maybe it's time for a Blackberry-type phone.

I just picked up the new Samsung Blackjack II. It's pretty sweet. I had the iPhone before this and I love the 3G network ability. No touch screen but you can upgrade the memory to 2GB.

I love my Blackberry Curve. I believe AT&T has the Blackberry Curve 8310 with GPS on it.

iPhone!!!

If I didn't hate Windows mobile as much as I do, I'd say the Blackjack II. It has a pretty impressive feature set.
I don't think any of the ATT Crackberries are 3G just yet.

I am so miserable. I just want my stupid Nokia out from the snow.
You know, I shoveled the back walkway of this Best Western TWICE tonight? I grabbed the shovel form the guy and told him I'd do the best shoveling job ever if he just let me do it so I could try to find my phone.
I'm so hangdog right now.

Blackjack II or the Blackberry Curve 8310 are my suggestions. I have the blackberry for work and had a blackjack for play. Love them both but the GPS on the curve is so damn handy!

I recommend you stay away from the iPhone until it's available in 3G.

The Blackjack II has the Navi now too.

By the way, the iPhone can't get multimedia messages, kind of annoying...

good to know...I was almost going to bite the bullet and get one. I don't have an ipod and so I thought maybe the iphone would kill two birds with one stone.... But I get a lot of multimedia messages, and I'd be annoyed if I couldn't get them anymore.

Ya it was kind of a bummer when I found that out. BUT the iPhone did get me laid one night, so it holds a special place in my heart...

Yes, I borrowed some guy's phone and went back and forth and back and forth for 30 minutes. I tried everything, I swear.
Oh, and when I tried calling home to let them know I was safe, I found out they don't have long-distance calling from this hotel!!!

This has been the day from HELL. I-90 is closed. They are not letting anyone on. People are sleeping on the interstate tonight; I guess I'm lucky I have a hotel room.

Also, I had a minor mental breakdown at a Piggly Wiggly today.

Alison if you havent already you should call your phone and change your voicemail message to let people know you lost your phone and will be checking messages, so people dont think you have fallen off the face of the earth.

with cingular, wait till you hear your voice, hit * then your pin number.
