Those who are friends with me on facebook know that I lost my blackberry recently. Some may even recall that I cried. Yep, sobbed on my living room floor like I had lost a puppy. My blackberry really is my crackberry: I have all of my email accounts on my phone, saved text messages over time, including one from a friend in New Orleans who was at a bar covered in dog photos and thought of me, all of my contacts (not backed up mind you- yes, very bad) are/were on that SIM card, so yes, I bawled like a baby.
I waited a couple of days to see if it would turn up, then went to the T-Mobile store in Wallingford to get a new one. I had pretty much decided on the g1 (google phone), then changed my mind and bought the exact same blackberry I had just lost, but in a different color (to the tune of $285, sigh….). I put my desire for a gphone on the shelf and decided to wait. So now I am debating over waiting until the next incarnation of the gphone comes out, or to go with the iPhone, which, incidentally would cost me $130 per month for the same service I now get through T-mobile for $65 (yikes!).
This is where you guys come in. I asked my FB friends what they thought I should get and it started a firestorm of controversy. Man are people passionate about their phones and service providers!!
What do you guys think I should get? What do you have? What do you like about it and what don’t you like? What do you pay per month for minutes + data? Thanks so much for your advice!
