    Cell phone

    What kind of cell phone do you all use?


    I just got a blackberry pearl last week. I am pretty happy with it, just having to get used to the Qwerty board. Can't find the smilies for text (thinking maybe i dont have them) and not sure what the Blackberry messenger thingie is. Maybe just for one BB user to another??

    There is so much to figure out though......and look forward to testing out the GPS on it.

    All in all, I like it. I don't like the offset numbers. I dialed a few wrong numbers because of it.

    I agree! We had Sprint about 6yrs ago and could never get service in my house and constantly dropped calls. Have had Verizon ever since and not a single complaint!

    Being the best is not what always counts. What counts is always trying your best.

    Remember who you are, and where you came from. That way you never get a big head.


    May those that lost their lives in 9-11 RIP, for the things you did not many could do. You left so many behind so that you could save so few. For now we stand strong as one, and will not look back till the fight is done. (me)

    My "company" phone is a Motorola V361 with Centennial service, and personal is a Motorola Razr V3XX with AT&T.

    Both work reasonably well.

    One of my coworkers has a Krazr, so it's on this side of the world as well.

    I have an LG enV through Verizon. I'm pretty happy with it.

    It's the mini Razor or Razr however they spell it. It's a motorola. ACS is Alaska Communications System.

    I have a Blackberry 8830 World Edition through Sprint. Best phone I've ever owned. Incidentally, I also have Sprint and have never had a problem with them here in Denver. Good reception, fast internet (I connect my laptop through the phone), etc.

    There is definitely a lot to figure out on the blackberrys. The BB GPS program is pretty good. Also check out Google Maps for Blackberry too. It's free, and also utilizes GPS. Very good program.

    And you are right about the BB messenger...it is for communicating with other BB users. I've never used it myself because I really know anyone else with one. We should exchange BB PINs!

    Um, I just switched to, er, Sprint. Yeah, Sprint. That's what I did. It's a shame I don't have Verizon anymore.

    that's not what Verizon told me the other day when I called them to confirm your number?
