i need to get a new cell phone fairly soon. i would like it to have the following features:

qwerty keyboard.
bluetooth.
pocketability.
not ugly.
unlocked and obtainable via ebay.

also, my contract with Cingular is up and i could potentially switch providers. i will have to get a new number soon anyway due to moving.

which providers are good in Southern CA? LA and OC area are most important.

does anyone know anything about Helio phones/service?

edit: i am not getting an iphone.

I have a Motorola Q with Sprint and I love it. I've had 2 Treo's and a Blackberry and find the Q to be superior.

Yeah dont get an Iphone. A Treo would be a cool phone to get. Or an 8125, those would be my only suggestions and they provide what you want. And Blackberry has some nice phones too.

I dont think she wants to be "trendy" like any idiot who is buying one right now. I really like it, but I wouldnt buy one at this point, first generation products have lots of bugs in them and they will have a superior more affordable version within a year.




nokia e70

YES.

you can get them unlocked

ewiggy
07-23-2007, 06:10 PM
yeah, but generally the phone would be cheaper if i got into a contract with the original carrier. and i can't figure out who that is.

I have that phone, and I like it. The only problem is that It's somewhat bulky in your pocket. Still, really fast texting.

This is the closest I could find to a cell phone thread... I hate making new threads.

I have the Cingular 8125. It's a life saver. Except the battery dies sort of fast.

I used to have Sprint. T Mobile is a definite improvement.

My company is giving me a Blackberry next week. I'm not sure that I want it. Won't I not be able to hide then?
