    Default New Phone - Help

    Ok, when i was in the US on holiday i bought an at&t Tilt (aka HTC Kaiser TyTn II 8900) for $70 on eBay. I love it, and i love Windows Mobile much more than all the other mobile OSs, but i think it's a bit too bulky for me and i don't know, it's not that appealing for me at the moment, and trying to get a good internet plan is hard, the only people that do one are 3, and its not unlimited, it's just 2GB a month, so i'm thinking of a new phone. Money isn't a problem, just nowone suggest the Asus Lamborghini phone, that much money IS a problem.

    Phones i'm thinking of getting:

    Samsung Blackjack II (black)
    Pros
    Nice and slim
    Windows Mobile 6.1
    2.0 Megapixel camera
    Nice to hold

    Cons
    Same internet problem as my Tilt
    Its a Samsung

    Rim BlackBerry Pearl
    Pros
    Nice and slim
    Easy to get internet access
    Very cheap to get

    Cons
    Stupid keyboard
    Don't like the OS

    Palm Treo 800w
    Pros
    Windows Mobile 6.1
    Nice keys
    Easy to get internet access

    Cons
    Expensive
    Somewhat bulky

    Apple iPhone 3G
    Pros
    Nice and shiny
    Easy to get a lot of applications
    2.0 Megapixel camera
    Easy to use
    Easy to get internet access

    Cons
    Freezes
    No separate physical keyboard
    Too quiet for reminders
    No word processing applications, only Notes and WritingPad
    Its an Apple product
    You can't develop apps for it unless you have Mac OS X and MacDrive doesn't support Vista Ultimate

    Can people help me make my mind up?? Maybe suggest other phones too??

    I think you should get the iPhone but it`s the most complicated of them all and I think you`ll have problems with servicing it.

    DON'T BECOME A SLAVE OF APPLE! I recommend any phone there except the Iphone. It's a over hyped piece of trash.

    My bloody Nokia N95 has more features then the Iphone. Come to think of it i recomend you get a N95. They are dirt cheap now & have heaps of app's available for them (just like the iphone)

    Well, I admit that N95 is the better phone. So, DriftNismo, here`s a tip - get a Nokia.

    It depends what you want. The iPhones are cool to use, and if the N95 is anything like my 6500 Slide, it'll fall apart and be crammed full of terrible design flaws

    iPhone = junk. Get a N95 or other smartphone.

    I hate Nokia's, and the N95 is wayy too overpriced and i don't believe for a second there are as many apps as the iPhone available. I'll have no problems with the iPhone, i've had an iPod Touch jail-broken and un-jail-broken so many times i know the ins and outs of it as far as apps and problems go. In my mind now is just the Blackjack II or the iPhone 3G right now. Still not sure if i'll even sell my Tilt yet.

    Buy a Nokia n81 (2gb) or the 8gb model. Great phone, looks shine just like the iphone. Has got symbian so there are a lot off aplications. Wifi internet and a lot more.

    I have got one and it's awesome

    btw iphone sucks
    (and yes i got a ipod, but the iphone just sucks. Way to expensive and it got a lot off problems)

    I-Phone is much better than the N95, the who thing is just so smooth, don't care if it can't do all this rubbish you can't do, the GPS accentually works, turn by turn? It can't even find me in England(says i'm in spain). It crashes all the time, the battery cover brakes, battery life is rubbish, wi-fi is rubbish, internet is fiddly, unlocks in pocket ect. ect.

    The N95 is alot better than the iphone. Its got better internet, wifi, gps. you don't have to pay for the symbian apps. By the iphone you have to do that. The nokia's are not the best lookings phone but they are very good. And the iphone has got a lot off problems with: apps, camera, wifi.

    My N95 GPS works perfect, The battery cover has never broke, It's battery life is good (even after heaps of wi-fi web surfing), Wi-fi is great if your near a decent Wi-fi spot, The browser takes a bit of getting used to but is still decent for a phone. Plus the N95 has a accelerometor in it just like the new ipods & there are already app's out the mimic cover flow & allow you to change songs by shaking your phone etc.

    Yeah, i can get one for about 200 pounds out here, but i played with one and i don't like it that much. Right now it's just down to the BlackBerry, the Samsung Blackjack II and the iPhone 3G. I MIGHT consider an N95, but i really hate Nokia's.

    I used to be the same & despise Nokia's but the N95 changed that. The whole point of Nokia's N series was to cram as many features into a phone as humanly possible. It's got Real player, Flash player, Microsoft office file readers (word,Powerpoint ect). ZIP Archive maker, Barcode scanner (WTF?) & more.

    Yeah, my mum has a barcode scanner on her Nokia E71, but it reads mobile bar codes, not normal ones. I've had a N73 for a week and played with many N95s but i really don't want a Nokia. It would be better to keep my phone right now then get an N95 imo.
