    Cell Phones

    Ok so since we are all talking cell phones and techonogy lately what type of new technology are you all using?

    I currently have two phones that I switch between the LG1400 and the LG9200 which are no longer sold by Cingular.

    I am thinking about going to the Razr and doing the Bluetooth thing.

    I've had mine for quite a while... and probably won't get a new one for at least another year or so. I have the i860 from Nextel (I, by chance, got it like 3 days after it came out)... as far as new technology... I have no idea... I never use my phone for anything other than talking on it... I pretty much abhor text messaging... so I doubt I'll ever have IM on my phone. I figure if you don't want to call or direct connect me... you don't want me bad enough for me to respond to you.

    No cell phone here. There is no service where I am.

    I had US Cellular for years. I renewed my contract for 2 years and I dropped my phone w/ 10 months on it. I was SOL and was told I had to pay full boat for a phone. I told them to go screw themselves sill and went to Nextel.

    I got the i560 w/no frills. I wanted a cell phone that will LAST and couldn't give 2 sh!ts for a camera phone. This phone is built to military specs for abuse and is built like a tank. But I did get the insurance just in case!

    I have Verizon and a Motorola phone. Not sure of the number but it has a camera and speakerphone. At first I thought speakerphone was a frill that I wouldn't use, but it has been great. If I'm on hold or trying to get instructions for computer work, I can just set the phone down and apparently it sounds perfectly fine to both of us.

    That's the one I used to have... and often wish I still had. Mine got all messed up... it dropped calls like crazy! I did consider recently getting another one and switching back.

    I use my barnd new Sagem My-Z5 that I got for Xmas.

    I only use flip and slide phones so no accidental calls and the like. This time I went for this phone because it has video calling and is USb capable.

    Well, Bear, you're special. You don't even have to text message me to irritate me.

    I take whatever one T-Mobile is giving me for free. I use it as a phone, not a frigging camera, email machine nor do I want to listen to music with it.

    I've had no problems with T-Mobile in the 4 or 5 years I've had them. A local news station checked with the state and found that they had the fewest number of complaints by far than any other service provider. Cingular had the most.

    I have a Nokia phone through Verizon. It's a couple of years old, no camera or music capabilities. It does the job for me and has held up to a lot of abuse.

    I have a Motorla V557 and, well, it's okay. It's a bit quirky and annoying at times, but on balance it's a decent phone. I was much more pleased with the battery life on my old Nokia. Though I don't care much about having a camera whatsoever, I would jump at the chance to get a nice phone with large enough storage capacity to hold a good number of MP3s. I carry my cell phone with me everywhere I go, and since I like to listen to music while I'm walking, it would be nice to not have to carry a separate MP3 device.

    My phone has speakerphone and I wouldn't buy another one without it. I use it much more often than I ever thought I would, especially when driving or if I'm at work and don't want to make it obvious that I'm making a quick phone call.

    Bearcat, I have Cingular and it works well in DC. Verizon offers signal in metro stations, which seems to appeal to many.

    Nextel I860. Had nextel for 2 years and love it. Recently got the office to switch to them and we have a Direct Connect console in dispatch. What i love about nextel is it either works or it dont. No static and very rarely does it cut out. The I860 takes great pics. I always thought camera phones were stupid but I love it. Take pics of accidents all the time now
    My only complaint is that the DC cut off for local service is like 5 miles west of my house so if I DC someone in the next town it costs but I can DC someone in Virginia Beach and its free
