Phone help anyone??
« on: June 25, 2010, 10:00:47 AM »
im trying to figure out what phone to get but im having trouble with how to choose. not to mention my carrier is us cellular which um yea youve never heard of im sure.

ive got it slightly narrowd down but still cant figure out which one.

heres what i NEED as a function on the phone:

qwerty pad,( that slides out not just touch qwerty)
online capabilities so i can check fb and other sites ( like this one)

and id prefer no touchscreen but in this day in age not possible unless its a blackberry and i sooooo hate blackberrys damn keys too small.


well those are the parameters any ideas???

Wait for the android phone like I said on Facebook lol

Android is a great OS with a ton of apps,  think iPhone kinda like.

Was it the Samsung Acclaim you recommended Master X?

That sort of fits your needs Isntmenttolast and Android does have a Facebook app and the Android web browser but you wouldn't be able to avoid using the touch screen sadly.  :(

I can't view US Cellular's curent phone offerings as you need a zip code to access their phone selection.

yes you are correct he did find it i had no idea what phone they were getting, and he found it. master x told me the same thing wait for the android, i still have no idea what that means but at least ill have you guys to ask questions because lets face it me and a "smartphone" is just going to be hilarious!

im excited now, the hubby will be thrilled that he wont have to pay 300 bucks for a phone for me.  ;D

No problems for the help! I did see that US Cellular were getting the Samsung Acclaim and the HTC Desire (whch is fantastic but doesn't have a hardware keyboard.)   :-[
I don't know what the internals are in the Acclaim but it's got Android 2.1 which is perfect! Hope you got a good deal on it. 8)

they wont have it til the middle of july which is perfect because we cant renew our contract til the end of july. theyve got it at 169.95 with 2 yr agreement then a 70 dollar mail in rebate, to 100 bucks, i can sooo deal with, it better then the 400 price tag on it if you dont renew ur contract.  


* 4 new phones??? why dont they tell anyone this when they looking at phones???
