Recently switched to ATT and got one of the free phones, a sonny ericsson. I can call people and they can call me. It works well with my 10 or so text messages I send and receive every month. Thats about all I need.

Same with me Deac - I don't have text messaging enabled on mine, so I don't even get those.

Another vote for the iPhone.

not only is it the best phone Ive ever owned ints the best hand held electronic device Ive ever owned.

9.5/10

Wish I could email in landscape, wish it supported flash, wish it could do video.

Check out EasyWriter free app. for emailing in landscape. Not sure on the other two.

I'm looking at getting rid of my nextel and moving over to alltel. Anybody have the Blackberry Pearl??

Do you like it ? Is it worth the added service?

Alltel will sell me one for 19.99 and let me put it on the family plan with my wife and kids for 10 bucks a month

Pearl is a very nice phone, if you don't mind the way the keys are set - has 2 alphabets per button. So, it may or may not take a little while getting used to typing on the phone.

The other blackberries, except for the flip phone one, has a full keyboard and the Curve is probably the smallest for a full qwerty keyboard type bb. Alltel may have a deal for that one as well; check.

...

For AT&T users: Amazon runs a few deals on blackberries - cheap if you agree to extending your contract, as long as you're past 18 months on the contract you're currently on.

Blackberry 8830 World Edition...work bought it for me and I love it. Has enough toys on it to keep me happy and works everytime I need it. Only one small complaint is that people I am talking to say that the microphone on it is really sensitive and it picks up lots of background noise....but that is there issue!!!! 9/10

I just got the Titanium Voyager a couple weeks ago. I like it a lot so far. It comes with the USB cable which also charges the phone, it is easy to put media on using Rhapsody, takes great pics and video. I haven't used all its features yet, but it does have visual voice mail, web mail, and all the stuff that is with Vcast. The browser is a little frustrating though. I am only using it some because Vcast is free for a month. Full qwerty keyboard was the main reason I bought it...and the fact that it only cost me $30 with my new every two credit. 8/10

Silver samsung Alias. I bought it in May. For someone who doesn't need all that PDA crap integrated in their phone or can't afford it like I can't, the Alias is a great option.

My favorite feature, which was also a big reason I bought the phone, is the double flip. Flip it to the side and I can text as fast as the next person. I hated the standard dial pad way of texting. Before this you had to do that crap with mashing those damn buttons that accounted for 3 letters each.

Camcorder is a cool feature. you can actually record something and set it up as your wallpaper.

My only gripe about the phone is that it doesn't have a good camera. You can't zoom with it.

9/10.

if you're into multimedia messaging, alltel's version would not allow you to send anything but text messages. other than that, it's one of the best phones you can get once you get used to it. but you do need a data plan, but the benefit to that is everyone on the family plan gets unlimited messaging. everyone wins. personally, i like the touch pro or the new palm, but you can't go wrong with the pearl.

speaking of the htc touch pro, does anyone have that phone?

    • Hello fellow huddles. I've been a Panther fan since 2003 and usually have had the ability to watch all the games until I started at a major retail chain store in 2016.  I'm also at the bottom of the totem pole there so I have the worst scheduling hours  (ex. I have to often do a late shift one day and be back at work for an early shift the next morning , always work weekends) and 99 percent of the time I'm scheduled to work on Sundays. Apparently there's already a bunch of people in my department and elsewhere who already have Sundays off as part of their availability, so I'm guessing this is one of the reasons why I'm ALWAYS scheduled to work a late shift every Sunday it seems which is pretty much a guarantee I will miss the games this season. I've got maybe 4 days of paid time off accumulated so I guess I could pick a few games out of the season to be off on. Logic tells me that I'd probably be better served to let that keep stacking and just take a week of PTO vacation in July or something but it just sucks ass being a huge football fan and miss most of the action for the first time in my life.  I pretty much had to take this job at least in the short term last year, or just take the job that was willing to hire me the soonest honestly.  Its most certainly my fault for majoring in a dumb ass unemployable field of study in college , so I won't waste time bemoaning my living situation at this point. I'm just trying to figure out of theres anyway to at least have Sundays off. I'm guessing I could actually change my availability with the company but that's going to murder my weekly hours , I'm already part time if I miss any given day during the week I get significantly less money for rent/food/other poo I need.  I live in a small ish town in eastern NC right now. 95 percent of the jobs out here seem to be at retail/fast food oriented . I've applied to alot of jobs closer to major areas like Raleigh , Durham for the past half year but no dice so far. At this point, I'm not even sure if its possible for me to get a non retail job. Its pretty much the only thing that I have experience doing and I'm 26 so.. part of me wishes I just went to a branch of the military like alot of my high school classmates did, or gone to some trade school, or did some on the job training for a technical career out of the gate from high school, but you can say hindsight is 20/20 as the cliche goes.  The immediate suggestions would be to DVR / Record the games which isn't an option for me , can't afford expensive  100+ dollar TV packages when thats  ten percent of my monthly income , I make ends meet with this job and thats right about it.  For whatever reason I just assume that the average huddle is middle aged with a decent steady job and income living near a big city haha. Its just my imagination obviously, and what I observe through looking at pictures people post and stories they tell. Even if you don't really have much input on my senario, let me ask you this, was there ever a time in your 20s or just a time in your life where you just didn't have the ability / means to watch the games even though you still considered yourself a fan at the time? 
    • What can I make of Cameron Artis-Payne? What I don't think I can make - barring injuries - is a spot for him on this year's Panthers roster. He may surprise, but I'm not expecting it.
