  • Cell Phone suggestions

    I've got a Samsung BlackJack that's served me very well but has recently been causing me some issues with sending/receiving texts and phone calls. I might just go with a big factory reset and update to Windows Mobile 6 but I always like looking at new phones too. Anyone got anything they want to share?

    I like the samsung i760 but unfortunately it's a verizon style phone.

        Well are there any good gsm phones with wifi on the market at the moment? I'm not a huge fan of the iphone. I've always had a massive soft spot for the Sony Ericsson's on the euro market, the k850i being a really cool phone. The older Sony's also only used to be tri-band rather than quad band, doing all their broadcasting on the T-mobile range.

        The N95 seems like a good one, unfortunately it's rather expensive. I used to spend alot of time on howardforums back when I had my L7.

          Bump this up. I need to upgrade but Cingular has a very limited upgrade choice. My main concern is my ****ty signal and by nearly all accounts, the iphone has pimping signal.

          Ideally I was planning on the Blackberry 8820 because I read that it would use wifi networks for increased voice coverage. Something that would have been ideal for both my parents home and my own, where AT/T traditionally struggles but we have wifi networks going on. Unfortunately it seems that feature is only offered with T-Mobile.

          Why is it all the phones offered on the cingular website are so bland? Would there be a difference in upgrade options if I went to an AT/T dealer?

              If your contract is over, what about looking at the G-1?

                Unfortunately, no. The AT&T dealer might have a couple discontinued models that you might like.

                About the iPhone, you mentioned that it has "pimping" signal, IMO, it's no better then any other phone that I've owned. I find the PDA's to have a weaker signal/poor battery life due to the capabilities of the phone compared to your "normal" phones; Razr, Krzr, L7, etc.

                  Maybe I should make mine something long and complicated and see if you try to reference me by it :lol:

                  Anyway :)
                  I just got a Samsung a737 and it's pretty nifty so far. I'd always had Motorola phones and thought i'd never get something else, but this one is nice.. and small.

                    The a737 is a good phone.

                    What features are you looking for in a phone Jack?

                      I would avoid Windows Mobile if possible.

                          But on the whole cell phone thing..
                          Since SOMEONE hasn't activated my new IPhone yet, I've had to go back to my old Razr. And I must say, I actually get better service with the Razr..

                            Hey punk, you know I've tried getting it to work again. Just jailbreaking/activating 2.1 on the first-gen iPhone isn't exactly as easy. My software keeps crashing right before it completes the custom .ipsw file. :( I will try again for you tonight but I get something in return. ;)
