I have been shopping for a new phone lately, and am not sure what to go for. It must be on Verizon, so no iPhone. I would prefer a smartphone with a physical or virtual qwerty keyboard, and I don't really have a preference between those. I currently have a Samsung Glyde, which I really tried hard to like, but lately, it has not been holding up its end of the bargain. It has been answering calls in my pocket, not ringing even when on full volume, and dropping calls. I know it is not a bad signal because another Verizon phone I have holds a signal in the same places fine, and I almost always get full bars where I am. I have been attracted to the Samsung Omnia, Blackberry Storm, and Verizon Wireless XV6900 especially. The HTC Touch Pro, while it is VERY good looking, is too expensive for what it does. (The Omnia and Storm both come with 8gb of memory for $200-$250, and it comes with 512mb for $300). I recognize this is an Apple-related forum, but I would really appreciate it if the "get an iPhone" comments would be kept to a minimum. As much as I like them (I am an iPod touch owner), I cannot leave Verizon, and I don't know if I want something as buggy as my iPod for a phone anyway.
