Im wanting a new phone. My Razr is so outdated its beyond pathetic, but Im completely lost as to what to invest in. Im with AT&T. I really want a smartphone, something with a good screen size, great internet, and one that can actually play some games like from Facebook. I dont mind a touch screen, but I'd want a keyboard to text. But problem is, Im not wanting to spend an arm for it either. Im not under contract, so I really dont have any loyalty to them. Oh, and as Im pc-less, cant need a pc to use it lol

Sign a contract and get your free/discounted phone. Those early termination fees don't hold up in court for the same reason Comcast cannot charge you for switching to WOW. I haven't paid for a phone in over a decade. If you can find a decent major service provider, they'll give you a free phone when you renew the contract as well. I just did it w/Sprint 5 months ago, and it isn't something they offer customers who renew.

These carriers now have a lot of competition, you should be able to get that phone for 100 bucks or less on a 1 year contract...maybe 2 if it's a $500 retail phone.

If you're stuck with AT&T, get an iPhone.

I would say to get a Android.. but ATT forces you to get a metered data plan..


If you want to switch go with Verizon and get yourself a Droid considering they offer unlimited data.

Iphones are Iphones. You know what you'll get with that. My dad got a Blackberry Torch almost for free a couple weeks ago (though that was due to him being due for a phone upgrade within the contract or something). That's a solid smartphone, at least from what I've seen. It's touch screen and it has a keyboard, but that's about all I know about it.

Verizon has shit reception where I live. But I think Sprint works. Problem is, just dont know about the latest phones on the market. Iphones may be > than all, but dont you need a pc to use it properly? Droid is what Im thinking, but gotta figure what Droid to get is the problem.

If that was the case, I'd get an iphone lol. All I know is this phone is dying, and as its my only source of internet, which is equivalent to a Webtv, its time I upgrade.

Honestly.. dont bullshit yourself with iPhones.. I know 6 people that switched from iPhones to droids and never looked back..

all up to you.. the new droids have dual core processors so incredibly fast.

Droid incredible? Different name lol. I know it'd have to be an android at minimum, so I'll be on the hunt. I just wish more phones could use a 4gig mem card. I wouldve thought it'd be standard by now and not just 2gig.

lol. My gf also just switched from ATT to verizon last week and got the new droid X2

I'm pretty sure you could put any microSD in the phone.

It really depends on what you want for an OS imo. I would say apple has more apps. I think androids os runs pretty smooth overall. I have the htc evo 4g and i love it. Before that I had the htc hero. As long as it isnt a simple flip phone or something like that then I think youre fine.(no offense to people that just have flip phones,they are simpler and get done what you need to get done.)
