So my contract is up and they’re trying to lure me to re-sign by dangling a bunch of free phones OR discounts on existing phones.  I hear also a new Android-based phone is in the works and should be out next month.

Anybody else on Verizon / got recs for a new handset?  Dunno what to get, though I use my phone a lot for:

-Phone calls (duh)
-Texting
-Pictures (taking blurry ones)
-Music (when my iPod battery runs out)
-Alarm clock

Hmmmm.... the Blackberry 9630 Tour? It has eveything you ask for but the sound quality for your music is terrible compared to playing them on your MP3 player. The phone call quality is the best from my other phones I had in the past. Picture quality is pretty good --- 3.2 MP. Good for texting and Alarm Clock is cool since you can use your music as alarm.

But smart move is to wait until the Android-based phone(s) are released.

I’ve been waiting for a decent android handset with a keyboard, for ages.  I’ll probably get the droid when it comes out, I think it’ll be officially announced at the beginning of Nov, and probably available for purchase then too… i hope.  It’ll be the fastest android phone, 5MP camera with 2 LED flash, music, gps, wifi, and it behaves as an alarm clock with a dock.

I’m guessing it won’t be cheap.

Tmobile is going to have some pretty cheap plans coming out soon though (googlefor Project Dark).

Wow. The recent Android phones are quite impressive. The only major downside is that the radiation level is way too high.

So whose getting the iphone for verizon?  I’m probably going to wait until the summer.  You know Apple will have a new phone ready to show off then.  Hopefully one that uses 4G

The LTE chipset is something that prevented the iPhone 4 from being 4G on Verizon.  It all depends if Apple has had enough time to incorporate it into their design.

I want the LG Optimus 2
