Uggg.... it's official, I need a stupid fracking phone.... suggestions? Keep in mind I hate touch pads and don't want a Black Berry. I'll likely end up buying an extension qwerty for whatever I get so whatever..... I think I'd rather go droid than Iphone??? I donno... I want something I wont be embarrassed to have for at least another 3 months but is currently supported (so yeah, no iphone 5) also I'd like to keep it as cheap as possible too..... but we all know that's not gonna happen so...

HTC evo shift is nice but it may not get Android 4.0 but you can get it for cheap.

Verizon

Samsung Stratosphere not Android 4.0 but it's cheap also.

At this point in the game it's gonna cost me roughly a bill a month for service anyways so I may as well go big or go home.

Yeah while the windows phone does have some features I like (mostly being able to customize my "start screen") I don't think I dig the Windows 8 interface in general. Plus the lack of support for it (currently) doesn't help.


The Photon you showed me earlier so far is winning, but more research needs to be done.

well all deprends on what you wanna pay, remember smart phones and their data plans i now verizon wanted at least 30 bucks a month for the small data plan. thats the only thing  dont miss about a smart phone.
