The PEBL or the Neo?

The PEBL is a darn nice phone too. A pretty good 'no frills' phone. Got this one recently as my old one got a busted camera :-( luckily it was replaced through the warranty :-D Syncs with osx wonderfully, and the nice VGA camera is good for quick shots to send via sms or email.

SMS is a little hard to send as the buttons are weird... but I want a QWERTY pad anyway and the Neo will satisfy that.

I was talking about the Neo....PEBL looks nice too, but not on the same field as iPhone, Neo1973, Treo etc

Mine is a Motorola v635 until a few days from now.

Owned the phone for 2 years (as of Monday) on Rogers Wireless in Canada.

I'm getting an HTC TyTn, while I'd love to have an iPhone.. Rogers doesn't have the iPhone on their product list yet.

Recently upgraded to Windows Mobile 6. WM6 > *

If Windows XP was this good, I probably wouldn't be using a Mac. Kinda wonder how MS can do one thing amazingly right and then something else that's similar sucks so bad.

I heard theres a replacement coming tho, the i620 but it looks awful and I really dont like sliders. I was thinking about gettin the Moto Q 9h but damnit I cant make up my mind.

Good choice except for 1 issue.
Text entry directly into M$ Live ... it doesn't work unless you type in Notes and copy & Paste into M$ Live. This is on the Dopod C730 device that launched first or HTC's branded S730. I'm still considering this really as the specs on a beautiful SGH-i620 doesn't have GSM/EDGE on 850mhz band - not even voice. and NO WiFi .... but maybe like the i607 vs i600 it'll have a 2nd version WITH said improvements (hopefully this time with 850mhz gsm band). Man such a cunnnig device.

Until then I'm waiting for T-Mobiles (RIM) Blackberry 8320 Curve (it has WiFi on a/b/g) ;)

Is the i620 supposed to be an upgrade to the i600? I mean the i600 has HSDPA and WiFi but the 1620 doesnt have WiFi. Im really thinking about just getting the i600 or the Moto Q 9h

Its supposed to be!

I see conflicting specs regarding specifically & only whether or not it has WiFi! I cannot find any screenshot that has it and no review just yet. This is an annoyance at best.

Pure details should surface as expansys.co.uk is ALREADY shipping it before Vodafone UK - which is supposed to have exclusitivity on this - can.

I believe it happens on N91 and not on N91 8GB. My91 8Gb doesn't crash nor reboots while receiving calls=) I am very happy with my first Nokia phone. I am using Sony ericsson before i decided to try out the N series.

Same as you lol, got it off the SE site. IMHO, i don't really think its a large problem, although patches from SE would definitely be appreciated.

I complained to customer care long enough that they were going to send me a warranty, but it would've taken three weeks to get here, and I already cancelled my service.

I'm still wondering if it's worth it, though, because I'm apprehensive about selling on craigslist, and Apple 'forgot' to charge me an extra $200 anyways.

Yes, I love the 8300, but I am getting the Voyager because it has that internal QWERTY keyboard, easier to text then T9 . Yeah, if I was on AT&T, or my company switched, I'd buy an iPhone. But since I'm stuck on Verizon for the foreseeable future, the Voyager's the way to go for me.

Most likely my next phone will be the recently announced SE W980i ... all metal (3G only for Europe's 2100Mhz, but it has GPRS/EDGE on Quadband).

3MP cam (no auto focus - but its fine by me: unless SE makes a UIQ Smartphone - non-touchscreen).

Watch out though, losing autofocus makes the camera quality that much worse. I had a W810 and tried to go to a z750 and I couldn't stand the camera because it was HORRID. Just like the iPhone cam compared to the w810: it's lacking autofocus.

it remembers the last sim you used, or if in doubt, uses sim slot 1, its pretty easy to switch, just like turning the phone off and on again only much faster. I will warn you, battery life isn't amazing...

Does yours exhibit the same situation? Even on the 8100 on BIS my BB on Rogers Wireless (Canadian GSM network) had this available. I'm just wondering if this is a trend on Verizon. I'm gonna check out Telus Mobility's 8130 to see if the same situation is there.

N73+N95.

Love them both, but the N73 has been through the wars, as you can see the top half of the fascia is missing, this happened while in Spain, I dropped it from a 3rd story balcony. Also I flashed it with the Music Edition firmware and this unfortunately wiped out the bluetooth. I do plan on fixing both of these problems. It is locked the 3UK (Hutchinson?).
The N95 I received yesterday on my new o2 contract, 400 minutes 1000 sms free phone 25/mo for 24 months. So far I love it, more than the iPhone I have used in store. Although the web browser on the iPhone is supriorior I do not find the one on the N95 is bad for how much it gets used. The N95 also works with Salling Clicker, I love this software the thing I like most about it is that it pauses iTunes while you are making or receiving a call. This phone is simfree.

Yea i don't have it on mine either. Must be the "Big V" doing what they do best lol ;)


How do you like this phone?
Yea, I love it. I hate the voyager with a passion so that wasn't an option for me. My dad has a blackberry and he hates it causes everyone from work can contact him whenever, but i like it that i can have my email. Set up was a snap with dot mac and my school email. I just had to type in my user name and password and it was done.
I love the size of it. I'm not writing huge long emails, just a few sentences so i don't mind the small keyboard. I hate suretype so i just use multi-tap. I'm getting quicker and quicker by the day with it. Haven't used the music/video player yet as i have my ipods for that. The camera is decent quality. (2MP) I think the reception is better then my old Moto e815 along with better sound quality. The browser is decent. It not full HTML like the iphone but i can still kill time check MR using the mobile edition.
I downloaded the facebook app which is really cool. I can upload pictures from the phone directly to facebook and do everything else facebook can do.
Only negative i have so far of this phone is that being on a mac you can only sync a handful of things like contacts/addressbook, ical, stickies, mail. If you pay for the missing sync you can sync music etc. Also some of the themes and apps are for download to computer only and they are zip files and require the blackberry app for Windows to install. To get around this you need to find games/apps/themes that are OTA- over the air download.
Hope this helps

Yea i don't have it on mine either. Must be the "Big V" doing what they do best lol ;)

I figured out that the missing Enterprise Activation is a two-fold issue.
1> Your on a BIS plan.
2> Due directly or indirectly to above (as per my 2 users on our BES) the issue is VZW did NOT send the Blackberry Enterprise Service CLass to the 8130 and thus no Enterprise Activation icon on Home Screen nor listed in Adv. Options.
I got it resolved in 24hrs. And yes I'm a Jr. HD BES Admin; I figure this ALL out without direct access to the BES as well. Time to get certified and make the BIG cheddar.

Yea, I love it. I hate the voyager with a passion so that wasn't an option for me. My dad has a blackberry and he hates it causes everyone from work can contact him whenever, but i like it that i can have my email. Set up was a snap with dot mac and my school email.

I love the size of it. I'm not writing huge long emails, just a few sentences so i don't mind the small keyboard. I hate suretype so i just use multi-tap. I'm getting quicker and quicker by the day with it.

Sheesh. Sorry I hear "I hate suretype" ALL the time by new users ... less than 1mth of first time using ANY BB (BlackBerry) unit. Sure there IS a backwards learning curve if you've used a BB (individual key) qwerty model before for some time, as these users cannot adjust in their heads. However SureType is SUPPOSED to LEARN your typing habits, and does an AMAZING job at it if you JUST let it do so. Just like the instructions say ... just KEEP typing the word you're after, EVEN if the letters just do NOT match. Then you backspace just enough to have the correct letters in order and type 1 letter at a time, scrolling to get the exact match. after just 2 times doing this the word/name you're after in a full sentence will be either the 2nd/3rd match and within a few repetitions will be the first. Sure there ARE a few mistakes that needs to be fixed ... almost insulting and embarrasing combinations but its VERY good. Using the TAP method is just way to slow in a paragraph. I'd be able to type 40wpm on a Pearl just after my first month. No longer have the Pearl because data was catastrophically high here in Canada but just changed 1.5mths ago so I'll probably get another Pearl (Pearl 2 for GSM) or Curve 8310 shortly.


ps - also a good resource for more info is on howardforums.com

YIKES! Gads NO ... not for Blackberry's! Everyone that SEEMS knowledgeable there is just regurgitating original information posted on Blackberryforums.com - with one exception ... myself (prom1) and Mark Rehjon, and a handful of others. Mark is a major catalyst of why BB's are so popular with consumers and why so many migrated from the Sidekick to a BlackBerry - just like he did. Btw he runs his own business - and I swear RIM is STUPID for night contracting his knowledge and insight for consumer marketing/positioning. Also he is deaf. You can only IMAGING how powerful the BlackBerry is for him that most of us overlook.

On the other hand .... for END USER applications especially for MEDIA ( My test is to view pictures WHILE playing music - I could NOT acheive this on the Pearl 8100 or the first 8800 or 8300 Curve), I need more ... and thus the Nokia N82 offers just that much more.

Actually I'm not sure if it has to do with my work thinking we're all stupid or their desire to continue to control us, but my 8703e did not have the icon on the home screen either out of the box. When they decided they needed to move servers i had to reactivate it. To do that they gave us instructions on where to find the icon. This is on the Sprint network but people with a BB and no phone # tied to it in the company sit on t-mobile and also have the icon hidden. fwiw. ;)

Its nice, but the software is a bit slow. Firmware, I wouldn't even want to tell you how to reflash it with how I messed mine up. Personally with the price of the N73 I would rather go for the SE K800i. They're about the same price iirc. My fathers girlfriend has one and it's an exellent phone.

OK, I found out how to flash it and it seems easy enough, just change the product code and update it by the looks of it. I dont like Sony Ericsons TBH, and I like the S60 platform because there is LOADS of software for it out there. So I will get a N73 I think... But can you tell me what went wrong when you flashed it?

That's not MY phone, but that's exactly what I have.

Why do people not take off the blue plastic cover thing from the Motorola logo above the screen?

Actually I'm not sure if it has to do with my work thinking we're all stupid or their desire to continue to control us, but my 8703e did not have the icon on the home screen either out of the box. When they decided they needed to move servers i had to reactivate it. To do that they gave us instructions on where to find the icon. This is on the Sprint network but people with a BB and no phone # tied to it in the company sit on t-mobile and also have the icon hidden. fwiw. ;)

lol its to further control you. I recently just took another course to update my skills. IT IS possible for a provider to PRE-configure a BlackBerry with certain settings (like the hidden icon) and such and even restrict personal email setup for a company ordering a large lot of BlackBerry units without ever having to open the box. HRT initiates when first connected the network (either on GSM networks when a new SIM is inserted, or CDMA type units connect to the providers network or an authorized roaming partner). That said NEITHER is the situation in this case. If you read my initial posting you'd see that a HIDDEN Enterprise Action icon wouldn't stop ANYONE from going to OPtions> Adv Options> Enterprise Activation. You cannot HIDE this function here. ITs there EVEN if activated on the BES. Fact was the 2 users I troubleshooted did NOT have this option - which concerned me that something else in the OS was pre-configured this way. When Verizon was contacted by user (no firmware upgrade or re-install was done); our Admins most likely resolved it with Reinstall of the firmware. Thanks for the tip though as it will help others just in case.

@ idesign245 (you mentioned don't deal with Rogers, lol ). Is you Shine unlocked? I may be PM'ing you in the next 30days for all kinds of questions on how to set this phone up. I Gotta purchase one for my wife .... she is fixated on this phone. I call it a vanity mirror; just my view. Is that a joystick under the screen? Did it come with a velvet like case that self polishes smudges and finger prints upon insertion & removal?

Thanks.

The K850i is a fantastic phone and i think you're gonna like it because your previous one was a SE.. I switched from Nokia N73 & i needed some time to adopt, but its still easy to use, it has a great 5MP camera.. the only thing i hate is the speaker.. its not loud and clear like the N73
Norways network is 3G right? so its better to wait for the 3g iphone,if you're going for it ;)

Norways network is 3G right? Mostly... at least in the main population areas
so its better to wait for the 3g iphone,if you're going for it ;)My thought exactly... which is why I just as well can get me a phone for the next year or so... :)

Now if only I could get a reasonable plan with lots of data and less talking and texting, I'd been extremely happy. There are only two providers, and both charge NOK 499,- per month for unlimited data, almost $100. And that's on top of regular calls (out) and SMSs. Even my 5mb ADSL line at home is a lot cheaper (and DSL is also traditionally expensive here in Norway). :o

Just read a rather iffy review of the new SE W960i today, too... and it might just be stricken from my short list of phones which seems to come down to the K850i vs E61i vs N82.

Haven't used a Nokia for years (except for when the Z520i was in the shop, and since that was the same phones that I used all those years ago it hardly counts... ;)), and read much positive reviews on the S60 system... so I might just give them another chance, since SE - for some INSANE reason - omitted WiFi from the upcoming K660i...

Well Forget about the Nokia E65 - its the adopted and ignored redhead of the Nokia S60 format. That finish rubs off VERY quickly just like the nice N76 (razr copy). N72 runs on an old S60 platform - sure lots of apps but all except for a few have been updated. For some $250US more you're better off going for the E61i - size is the killer on this. BUT if you still want S60 expandability and STILL want a camera to match what the K850i has .... consider the Nokia N82.

For roughly $75+ on the K850i's current price or cheaper you ONLY loose the esquisite OS & Triband 3G. But you get WiFi, VGA video recording @ 30fps (vs qvga same fps), TV out & Audio from the 3.5mm jack (same as the N95)

But if you love the flip of the Z520a (very solid phone keep it as a backup, trust me on this) > then go for the SE Z750i (same platform as the K850i, you still get Triband HSDPA 3G, same Media Manager, but you ALSO get A-GPS built in. Video callnig there as well (but you loose the AF & 5MP camera :( ).

No you wouldn't lol. By your own admission that you hate WinMobile you also contradict your moral with emotion that you love it. You've already stated that you use more features than you expect (browse the internet, sms more, etc). Now, for the moment there are more compelling applications for the WM. Lets hope that all that changes when Mac OS X coders really get down to business on the iPhone. Fun too.

The only problem is that I was actually out in shops, browsing and trying to get a feeling for the different phones this weekend, and while the E61i feels like a tank and the K850i (and te W960i for that matter) feels fine, despite of being "all plastic", the N82 was kind of dissapointing: The plastic front seemed extremly flimsy, and had broken off one of the displayed phones and was loose on another... not all that comforting... :o

But on the other hand: It does everything...

So I guess it's still a three horse race. ;)

I have the 8gb iphone. Got it the day/night 6pm it came out. Only phone I use. Forget my house phone, I have it set-up to transfer all my calls to my iphone. It is so easy to use, I only wish it had a bigger drive, 8 is not enough for me but I'm spoiled by my 80gb ipod video. I carry a lot of Sci-fi TV around with me. I ripped my DVD collection of Farscape, Firefly, SG-Atlantis, SG-1 and some B5. Thank the Goddess for my 2TB MacPro. Right now I'm at work listening to music on my iphone.

So I am pretty sure I am getting a new phone on this friday, and I need some help.. I want a smartphone and I am looking at either a Black Berry Pearl, Curve 8300, Blackjack II, or Moto Q. I am not quite sure what to get, the only thing I know is that I need unlimited messaging and that the BB data plans can get really expensive..

Does anyone have any advice (on the phones), please? :confused:

Basic LG phone from bell. Nothing special about it. Had to buy it due to me jumping around in a puddle and my good samsung falling out. So I had to buy this one out of contract and it was the cheapest. If you consider $180.00 for a plain phone.

...you're better off going for the E61i - size is the killer on this. Guess what... I caved yesterday... :o

Went out and got me - exactly - the Nokia E61i :cool:

96273

As I was saying to my girlfriend: This might actually turn out to be the coolest gadget I've ever had...

It found and connected to my WPA protected WiFi network without any problem, and I even tried a bit of surfing last night... was a bit sceptical since it only has 320 x 240 resolution on the 2.8" screen, but it was surprisingly usable... though I think I'll stick to WAP pages when I can, especially when I'm only on 3G (or even worse: Edge :D).

Now if I only could get MobyExplorer (http://www.bermin.net/support.html) (or another s/ftp-client with text editor capabilities) to work with the login our own ftp-server (and not just the anonymous login at ftp.sunet.se) I'd be a very happy puppy... ;)

And with a 12 month contract, I'm in line for the 3G iPhone next Christmas, if Panic (or someone else) makes a nice Coda'esque sftp-client/text editor for the iPhone in the mean time.

Nice choice! I had the "old" E61 until a few months ago. Sadly the speaker went south on me (everybody sounded like a robot). I was very pleased with the phone. The build quality is great and the keyboard is very good use. The only downside (not really a problem, but still) is the size of it. For PDA use its fine but as a phone I got a lot of weird looks holding it up to my head :rolleyes:

I replaced it with a Sony Ericsson P1i which, in my opinion, is a slighty better phone overall.

Nice choices all.

Keep an I out for CES cellphone announcements - as future upgrades WILL be immenent.

ie.

Nokia E71 (its rumored E61i upgrade) : improvements ... 3.2MP camera, slightly slimmer.

Motorola Z10 - upgrade to that Kick-Slide Z8.

Currently I now rock the Motorola Q9h (but the AT&T version), which I cannot stand atm. No WiFi. I wanted the Rogers version as I believe my Q9h may NOT have GPS built In.

Still nice choices everyone.
@Mitthrawnuruodo; check out HoFo S60 space or even Symbian-freaks.com for LOTS of information that MAY help you get what you need for your E61i.

Samsung Blackjack, hacked to Windows Mobile 6 since ATT is deciding to just dick around with the upgrade.http://alysonstrother.files.wordpress.com/2006/12/blackjackofficial.jpg

The quality of either the phone or ATTs network is questionable. Dropped calls, slow as hell data.

I owned a Samsung Sync before this, and it seemed to work a wee bit better. I upgraded within my first month to this due to texting/IM was a pain in the rear without a keyboard. I hear ATTs network is poo, and I hear Samsungs GSM is junk. Dunno.

I wish the letters were spaced out a bit more, because I have fat fingers. I also hate the interference with PC speakers and such, but I hear thats all GSM phones. Meh.

I might make my next phone an iPhone, way down the road. But it'd have to be at least 16GB, and allow me to make my own ringtones without purchasing them, since iTunes doesnt carry the music I would like to make ringtones out of.

Glad at least some solution was found by my pointing in a direction. Yes those sites all jocking for "who's got the latest information or scoop " doesn't help in design. However to Apoc's credit symbian-freak is done ALL by himself even remotely on his N93 or N95 when out of country on announcements or exclusives. E71 rumor is nice.

Well I got my AT&T working on my PC and on Rogers Data (MMS still alludes me to death). I'm still digging for a reg-hack to enable a "possible" internal WiFi.

But entering appointments, trying to create new playlists (because of the horrible AT&T ROM) is driving me UP the WALL. Everything I was supposed to gain - although painful - above a Curve seems so minimal now. My old 8100 was superb for data input (work hours, notes - 4 days I STILL cannot enter a NOTE even with MS Mobile Office 6 installed on top of Docs2Go, Spreadsheets) is so arcane ... it doesn't even SEEM like Windows for cheaps sake! I'm still going to give it a full 30 days chance though.

If ANYONE has a WiFi enabled WM6 Professional HTC device ... can you PLEASE post your default Registry settings in the following:

(BTW, I'm using PHM Editor )

HKEY_Classes_ROOT > WiFi > CLSID (values): Default: Valuedata: {EDF83936-F42FA-43e2-A278-DB67EF7E90B8 (value type REG_SZ)

HKEY_CURRENT_USER > ControlPanel > WiFi >

EapFlags (value)> Value data: 0 (value type: REG_DWORD)
EapType (value)> Value data: 25 (value type: REG_DWORD)
EapolParam2
EapFlags (value)> Value data: 0 (value type: REG_DWORD)
EapType (value)> Value data: 13 (value type: REG_DWORD)

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > ControlPanel > WiFi
Timeout (value) > Value data: 0 (value type: REG_DWORD)

NOTE; Under the following I ALSO have these listings:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > Comm >
WiFi > Comm > ScanInterval (value)> Value data: 60 (decimal) (type:
REG_DWORD)
also (amongst: AutoCFG, AutoInterval, DefaultGateway, EnableDHCP, Subnetmask, and UseZeroBroadcast, I have the following)
(HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > Comm >)
RNDISFN1 > Parms > TcpIP > IpAddress > Value Name: IpAddress > Value
data: 169.254.2.46 (value type: REG_SZ)

So what should I edit IF IN FACT this Q9h has WiFi?

Thats EXACTLY what I've been thinking ALL day long. SO I went back to my OL' Faithful the SE K790a ... thanking the angels that I haven't sold it. SE W760i (sry W790i was a typo) will most likely be in my repertoire late summer.

Right now I'm on the hunt to go BACK to BlackBerry. I'm just praying more consumer applications that allow backing up information to the MicroSD card, and less focus for web connection/services to use apps is needed. Keeping an eye out for the 8120 or 8320 in grey now.

I don't like this steady state that in order to enjoy a smartphone & utilize its abilities for rich/powerful applications a user must have a internet connection to use these applications.

@7on - thanks for your efforts ... but I cannot just import your backup of registry settings > your's is a WM6 Pro device (touchscreen) and my Q9h is a WM6 Smartphone device (non-touchscreen). Also I cannot read that file & determine whats in there .... I was looking as a direct comparison of specific registry listings. I'm glad you tried to help, and its appreciated. However I'm getting nowhere, not your fault. I just fell for the eye candy shell. First time for everything I guess.

I have an iPhone - here's a link for those of you who don't know what it looks like. (http://www.apple.com/pr/products/iphone/iphone.html)

I use this piece of ****** (Moto C168i) for when we have swimming during gym at school. I don't want the iPhone to get stolen from my locker (obviously), but they can have this $15 phone. It really sucks for texting during class, though - the buttons are too small and there's no full keyboard :(

So you pay for two cell contracts just so you can have a phone during swim class?

Yep, no need for 2 contracts.


I have a Nokia 6030 that I put my SIM in whenever I go to the gym so my good phone doesn't get broken or stolen. My brother got the 6030 for free when we signed up with T-Mobile, but already had an unlocked Sony Ericsson phone so he gave it to me. But I could've just as easly bought the 6030 from T-Mobile as a prepaid phone (and would've only paid around 30 bucks) and use it.

If someone wants to steal that piece of junk, they can have it. The bolt cutters or lockpicking kit they would have to buy to get into my locker are probably worth more than the phone itself.

Should be the same for At&t (or at least cingular). In SE Missouri I still roam on Cingular towers. I haven't seen an AT&T towers yet so I didn't know if the old deal extended to them with the acquisition (but I doubt it).

Also depend on the the phone. A lot of tri-bands lack 850Mhz reception which is a large chunk of Roaming here in the US. I know the pay as you go phones will only use T-mo's towers and won't roam.

T-Mobile pay as you go will roam. I don't think the roaming coverage is as wide as post-paid, but I know for a fact prepaid can roam in some parts of the country. Their prepaid roaming coverage map is at http://www.t-mobile.com/coverage/prepaid.aspx

T-Mobile will also roam on AT&T towers. I think the reason yours shows Cingular instead of AT&T may be because they haven't switched the names on your towers. But whenever I roam in Missouri, my phone shows AT&T (if you're ever out that way, on highway 63 between Jeff City and Rolla, you'll be roaming, and your phone should say AT&T)

Just got this today. Awesome phone :D

I love SE phones as well. I went from an SE w810i to a Blackberry Pearl, didn't like it a whole lot. Then I moved on to a Windows Mobile PocketPC which I liked, but it was just way too bulky and WM6 did have it's decent share of bugs, still a good OS though. Then I moved onto a RAZR2 which I had for about 5 hours. I realized there was no Mac compatibility whatsoever, not for syncing, not even just to load music on it, plus the interface absolutely sucked (and it's their new Linux based OS too, what a disappointment). fortunately Motorola has a no BS return policy. So now I ended up back at SE and couldn't be any happier. I love this phone.

At first I thought I'd miss a smart phone, but this does web, e-mail and Google Maps, the only things I used my Blackberry and PPC for.

Well my trusty ol' RAZR finally died... the screen randomly blanked out and sometimes I had to reboot the phone several times to fix it. Alltel was nice enough to upgrade me to the phone Verizon customers know as "The Chocolate Flip" (aka the LG AX8600) It's a really great phone, and I've even bought a microSD card and loaded up some music. I had an old LG LX5450 and that phone was a brick... it refused to die. Reception sucked on the 5450... but this phone is much better. I like how I can read text messages on the front screen :D

I had to replace this thing twice. The first time it just stopped turning on unless it was plugged in and when I would take it out it would just turn off. The second time it got really bad reception and would drop my calls all the time. My dad is thinking about switching to at&t so he could get an iPhone and I hope by then I would have a job so I can get one too...

Excellent choices for a feature phones!

Somebodies got an HSDPA (US & EuroAsian compatible) 3G modem in their pocket.

Hmm .... 3.6Mbps (not real world but I've seen USB tethered speed tests - also not consistent over an hour of surfing/streaming/downloading) of 3302Kb/sec = 3.3Mbps. If you manage a consistent 2.6Mbps all the way until the battery lasts, you'd could still enjoy roughly 2.8Mbps over BTv2.0+EDR (which comes in the K850i) !!! :O :D

Best thing is SE's world renowned Battery life. Since my old T18z (4hrs), T39m (6.1hrs), another T39m (6.5hrs), z500 (4hrs), z520 (5hrs), K790a (6.8hrs - 26hrs flight mode for music only); I've always gotten continuous & regular talk times! :apple:

To me ... SE is the Apple of the phone world, while BlackBerry is the Palm of the cellular, mobile email & corporate wireless applications of the world .... when Palm was doing great (around the time of the m505/m525; or just before Sony dropped out).

You said it. One reason i got the iPhone in the first place was that i would be on a GSM network so i can get my SE phone when the iPhone hits the hay. A note on battery life, i hope you are right about SE phones getting great battery life. One reason i still use my old NW-HD5 MP3 player over the iPhone is that i have to charge it about once a month here at school, and that is with using it every day. Sony knows a thing or two about battery life, unfortunately Apple hasn't gotten that far yet. I hope that when the iPhone is done SE will have something very special waiting for me. :D

eBay is your best bet. However, just a word of warning, many on the phones that are on eBay are band new, but they're not supposed to be sold in the US so you may not have any sort of warranty. I got mine from Sony's online store so I'd have a warranty.

Also, if you have AT&T, make sure whatever phone you get has 850MHz and 1900MHz for GSM. This is an absolute must. Especially 850MHz (which only about half of the Sony phones have) because that makes up most of AT&T's network. I think all of the phones sold on SonyStyle are quad-band so you'd be fine with those.

I agree LG does not know how to make a touch screen.

However, most of their phones are very good in quality as well as design. The phones you mentioned in your post don't do a good job of showing that.

Still, 850mhz is nice because you'll use the the most on highways and small towns. When I went to college last year all they got was 850Mhz around there.

I've had my love affair with Blackberry ... I may yet again go back; I left because data pricing here in Canada as hurting me bigtyme. Its one thing to Troubleshoot users from the BES; its another to pay for those data rates when income wasn't justifying it. IF I ever get a career over at RIM I'll let you guys know.

My biggest issue with RIM calling the Curve or the Pearl a "consumer" device is that you cannot listen to music (either thru the speakers or via 3.5mm Jack) and view photos from the phone/MicroSD (not attachments in email) at the same time. This to me is asinine. I've been able to do this with SE phones for ages.

You can order directly from SonyStyle but you'll pay an arm & a leg. There are a few reputable sites online ... (I've done business directly with) hi-mobile.net, SNTraders.com, etc etc .... just make sure you get a 3rd opinion from those here you would trust; or haven't wronged anyone before. Also do a "whois" search. If it lists a solid contact information, email address; and registered owner of the site (not another company, who's whois report is vague) then you should be alright. Checking the contact information as well helps even calling during & off business hours to see if its somebody's personal cell or a true business.

I've read about the data rates up there. Like $100 for 1GB? Less than that? That is insane. I'm happy for my $30/month 5GB EVDO coverage. :D

You got to rub it in, don't you ;) . Prior to 4mths ago it was $100/mth = 1GB and it was "soft capped". Rogers version of "unlimited data" if you went over you wouldn't get a call, nor even an sms to inform you, you'd just be billed incredible overages ($3/MB). Now its $65/mth = 1GB, and it throttles upwards in increments, $75/mth = 2GB, etc if you go above your oringinal 1GB. Its getting better, but way WAY too slow. February 8TH regular cellphones will allow on the phone itself (no BT/USB tethering) of True unlimited surfing - using the phones browser for $7/mth! But I highly doubt Blackberry's will be included. I pray but I don't think our Wireless Deity is listening ;)



On the 8130, I just tried that. Playing music through headphones and then went back to photos all in the Media application and the music kept playing. Could you be using the 8100?

DUDE! You've just made my month! I'm GLAD to see that OS 4.2 allows for this! You are correct that the 8100 didn't allow this, hence why I used it for only 3-4mths and sold it.

I already got rid of my unlocked AT&T Motorola Q9h .... back to my SE K790a. I'm considering the K850i for night on the town usuage ... but with OS 4.5 coming for BB's with HTML (limited of course) Email support .... the 8120/8320 just might get my hard earned cash!
