Verizon Suggestion For New Phone?

so i'm sick of my lg slider phone and need something new. my biggest issue is that you can unlock it w/o sliding open the phone. i frequently dial, edit, and download dumb shit when my phone is in my pocket. i'm looking for something with a qwerty keyboard and i'm not too picky about whether it's digital or not.

what i DO want is a physical lock so i can't just push a button by the screen to unlock or at least something more difficult to unlock. i would also like something that can still fit in the pocket of my jeans. suggestions? unlocked phones on ebay? where should i look?

Well I am starting to realize that teh Verizon BB Storm is somewhat a pain in the ass. I text and BB IM a ton and the key board is not as nice at other BB's. But everything else I love. It does have a lock on it that is nearly impossible to unlock when it is in ur pocket.

I have a BB 8330 and I love it... You can lock it with one touch of a button and you have to hit the call button and * key simultaneously to unlock.

I'm looking for a new verizon phone too. I'm looking towards the blackberry too because I like the fact that there is texting logs. but I donno which to get I see the pearl is cheep but it might be because its small and the keyboard has two letters per button. or I'm thinking about the black berry curve but its kinda big... so not sure which I want yet.

Anyone with internet on their phone can, but Verizon disables the wifi so you can't hope on your wireless and surf the net faster using wifi. Unless they changed this and you can't get WiFi on Verizon phones.

I had the older version of this and loved it. I beat the hell out of the phone and it took everything I had. Only reason why I ended up with a new phone is cuz I lost it and my insurance paid for a much more expensive phone cuz they didn't have my version anymore.

What g2g is trying to say is as long as it has a camera he is happy

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .
