for the BlackBerry Bold 9650:
Simply just works
First of all I reccomend the Seido holster for any Blackberry purchase, it extends battery life, and automatically changes profiles (built in magnet) The trackpad was a huge improvement from the Tour, has a sharp screen, and has a very sophisticated look and yet feels absolutely sturdy. With the BB OS 6 update, the universal search is great, but I have noticed my battery last much less than before. So we wait for the plugin to fix whatever is causing ...

for the HTC EVO 4G:
Well done HTC
This unit operates exactly how a Android should. It's responsive, has a super large, nice res screen and it's easy to learn. Now that it has SWYPE, it's complete.

for the BlackBerry Tour 9630:
Not Bold enough
Switched from the Curve 2 to this. I like the weight, screen and speed of the phone, but like the trackball less than the Curve 1's trackball. (seems smaller)

for the BlackBerry Curve 8530:
Another Good Blackberry
Similar to 8330, newer OS and lighter Pros Sleek TRACKPAD!! So much better than Trackball Keypad is easy Con No Flash Thin Lense

for the BlackBerry Curve 8330:
Now a fan of BB
This has got to be the most functional PDA phone I've ever used! I'm use to some lag with WM phones and poor battery life with every other PDA. I can have my e-mails sent instantly to my phone, and go without charging my phone everyday! Yeah it does not have touchscreen, but the trackball is intuitive for every day use. Hated my pearl, but this is awesome, and I have no problem paying more just to have it!

for the Palm Treo Pro (CDMA):
Best WM phone yet!
I've have had several windows mobile phones, and have come to a general understanding on what to expect on them, low signal, short battery life, freezing, and overall cool OS and great customizing options. When I learned that it was actually HTC to manufacture the phone, I cringed a little bit. I actually really enjoyed my time with it! Pros Much less than normal crashes for WM Sleek housing, phone looks really cool Thin! Good battery Nice camera Fast Internet Cons Weak signal (as of most HTC manufactured ...

for the HTC Touch Diamond (CDMA):
Very, very cool
I did like this phone a lot, getting use to a touch screen only again came easier this time since I had the Touch about six months ago. The screen was nice and crisp, I texted with the phone XT9 keypad which worked fine, but then I upgraded the firmware then installed a gyrator program which enabled a horizontal keyboard. The phone had a lot less issues than previous HTC phones as well, even my co-workers Touch Pro. The ...

for the Motorola Renegade V950:
V9m to V950
This is a heck of a phone here ladies and gentlemen. This is the first direct connect phone I've had since March 06 and I'm impressed. I've had a few quirks but other than that it's been a great phone. Pros Military Spec Camera zoom is better than any other I've seen Bright Flash, very bright LOUD music is crystal clear too Direct Connect or not your choice Able to go through call log without opening Application manager Cons Different way of going through contacts Battery life no use of ...

for the Motorola RAZR2 V9m:
Nice
This phone was crazy! I showed it off all the time, but it did have some drawbacks. Pros Camera Looks (very very sharp) HUGE outside screen big buttons Loud musiz player good vibrate quick charge Cons Low batt life Motorola software issues Price (I wouldn't of forked out $280 for it) No application manager (Sprint)

for the HTC Touch (CDMA) / XV6900:
Great phone for HTC
I loved this phone, I still have it even though I trying a RAZR 2 right now. I will switch back when Rev. A comes out. I switched from the Mogul to this and am happy Pro's Small size Loud speaker, way louder than mogul WM 6 is a lot better then 5 Smart XT9, predicts commonly used words Very customizable, I had vibrate keypad, opera mobile, Guitar Hero 3, Tetris, Dashwire, and multiple video players. Sprint TV Con's No Sprint Radio Keypad is difficult at times, no ...

Jun 17, 2008, 5:31 PM
for the HTC Mogul / XV6800 / PPC6800 / P4000:
This is not a phone, it's a machine!
I only ran into one problem, the size, everything else is ridiculous! Sprint had the best network for it too with rev. A! All the programs I had on it made it a power horse too. I can't believe how flexible Windows Mobile is. Just too bad I got switched to a pearl before WM 6.1 got released for Sprint.

for the BlackBerry Pearl 8130:
Not a fan of Blackberry
This phone made it two days with me, I guess I truely am not a blackberry fan. Pros Small size nice screen Great camera trackball Cons Keyboard made my eyes hurt Battery won't charge off of any mini usb charger Required blackberry pack

for the Samsung MM-A900 / SPH-A900 / Ace:
Decent for the time
This phone was good for the first in line of MP3 player phones/thin phones. Samsung's programming is smooth but tends to hang up a little when accessing the Internet. The main drawback on this phone is the 40Mb of internal shared between pic/video/MP3. Overall great use of a phone.

for the Samsung M520:
I like it
This phone was great, I missed the slide form factor that I had on my Drift and this worked actually a little better because it hid the camera. Getting the body glove skin for it was the best thing I've could of done too. Internet was a little funny though.

for the LG Muziq / AX-565 / UX-565:
Great for Music
This phone worked great for music with a designated music button, and with the capabitiblity of Pandor Music through Sprint. Quick access to transfer music and download from Sprint's online site. Phone also looked cool and recieved many compliments. Outside music pad lights up red when shut, very fancy I would reccomend this phone to anyone who is looking for a great media centered phone!

for the LG Fusic / LX-550:
Cool phone
I switched from a Samsung a920 to this and I'm liking it, it's thinner, and better looking, but signal is sketchy, and it's not as loud. FM transmitter is king. I'm not a fan of LG at all, but I made an exception for the fusic and am not disappointed.

Jun 14, 2007, 11:01 AM
for the Samsung SPH-i330:
Okay
This was my first PDA phone I've had and also was my last. I loved the screen, but I got it after it was discontinued and it was hard to find a replacement stylus. I know at the time the technology that we have today wasn't out, but I'd never will get another PDA phone without bluetooth, camera or removable memory. Hated Palm software too.

Jun 14, 2007, 10:57 AM
for the Samsung MM-A920:
Good phone
This is a very nice phone for Sprint, I switched from a Sanyo 5600 to this, then recently to a Fusic. This phone is the loudest flip phone that I've found yet and the voice activated dialing is awesome. The phone looks a little odd, but put the OEM leather case on it to fix this. There is only one defect I've found with this phone and it happens when you make a call and at the same time ...

for the Samsung Drift:
Hold On To Your Seat!!
I'm use to having to go through sprint to have a decent EVDO network in my area until I saw Helio. But I refuse to get a Pantech or VK phone no matter how many features they have. But I'm so geeked about my new drift. The screen has the best resolution that I've every seen on a phone, The camera quality is unmatchable, and the GPS is a nice touch. Battery life does go down quickly with internet, ...

for the Sanyo MM-5600:
It's a tough phone
I traded my brand new 8300 for this hoss and I do not regret it. Even though I loved my 8300, this phone took it to school. This phone does come with more goodies than other phones I have went through like mini-sd cards, multimedia, and powervision. But it does have a drawback due to it's size, and also there is no blue tooth available on this or the 9000 which really concerns me. But if you can get ...
