for the BlackBerry Curve 8520:
At the moment, this phone is superior to all!!
This is only the second review? I'm sure more people than this have this phone. Anyway, I've sampled and have used the 8800, 8320 both sunset and titanium (I have T-Mobile), 8100 red blue and black, 8120 silver, and 8220 red and bladk(not counting other phones I've used). I had my eye on the 8900, but decided to save $20 plus tax and go for the 8520. Pros: Touchpad! No Rollerballs anymore! Sweet camera and video! Same great e-mail as always Tons ...

for the HTC Touch Pro (CDMA):
I'll have my PPC 6800 back, thank you!
I've had more PDA phones than Paris Hilton has had lovers. With that being said, I'll dive straight into this: Pros: 3.2 megapixel camera and video. 300MB of onboard memory. (Had it not been for pics/vids and music, I wouldn't have needed a memory card). Lots of RAM. More than I've seen in any phone ever! Unlike other Windows Mobile phones, it can be viewed on my laptop or desktop WIHOUT using Active Sync. Cons: Fingerprint magnet! STILL slow! Even with all the extra ...

May 1, 2009, 10:33 AM
for the HTC Touch Diamond (CDMA):
Call me crazy...........
.... but I prefer the Original Touch MP6900 over the Diamond. Pros: 3.2 Megapixel camera. It's in a class of its own. Not very bulky. Big, bright screen. No's: Limited to 4GB of internal memory, no expansion slot. Phone heats up after charging for 10 minutes Battery life sucks (and yes, I know how to close what I'm not using). It took me FOREVER to get past the initial setup (it's not me because I've used many Windows Mobile phones, and know what I'm ...

Feb 9, 2009, 7:54 PM
for the HTC G1:
The death of Blackerry and Windows Mobile is near!
If you're looking for a phone what shatters Windows, feasts on Apples and Blackberry, and shatters Palm, look no further than the G1 Android from HTC, for T-Mobile. I'm a phone junkie, and moreso, an HTC junkie. I've used the SDA, MDA, Wing, Dash, etc... but this takes the cake. Cons (few, but still there): Battery life (thank goodness for a spare wall and car charger, huh?) Must have memory card in it to use the camera (I always use one, ...

Jan 21, 2009, 9:22 AM
for the BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220:
No, thank you.
I go through phones a lot. I got it, then got rid of it the same day. What made me ditch it? The charging port. I don't like this type. I've had problems with this type of charging port on two other phones (The Q Global and the Treo 800w), and didn't want to deal with it. It power cycled on me three, yes three, times in 60 minutes. The battery is crap. Yes, I use many features, but ...

Dec 21, 2008, 9:55 PM
for the Palm Treo 700p:
It'll do for now.
I'd love to give it a 5, but I can't. Pros: Sturdy Awesome keypad Can create and edit documents. Decent camera Fast web and e-mail. The battery is very good (I use many features, plus the stuff I added to it). Cons: Reception isn't all that great. In fact, it sucks at time. It's power cycled off on me. The phone portion has turned off on me without my turning it off. It's not good if you need to make an important call. No Facebook app or ...

Nov 8, 2008, 12:59 PM
for the Palm Treo 755p:
Had better, had worse.
Although i'll miss Picture Mail and Sprint TV, I had to go back to the Treo 700wx. The Pros and Cons'll tell ya why. Cons: The phone power cycles in its own. Doesn't support Hotmail. Has limited camera/video features. Uses mini SD cards, which are harder to find, nowadays. Although I chose autosync, the e-mail didn't autosync. Pros: No dropped calls. Pretty good battery life, for being a PDA phone. Sprint TV Picture Mail Allowed 3Gforfree.com ringers, whereas most Sprint Windows Mobile phones don't. Palm is getting better, but still can't beat ...

Oct 19, 2008, 10:52 AM
for the HTC Touch (CDMA) / XV6900:
Good phone
I'm reviewing this phone. I bought it for my wife, and I almost wish I had one (the lack of a keyboard is the ONLY thing that stops me). Cons: Adding phone numbers seems to be a pain in the butt. Pros: Over 100MB of user memory! Can handle SDHC cards (i.e. 4GB and more). Awesome camera and video. Endless goodies Good call clarity. Texting and e-mail are easy, once ya get the hang of it. Windows Mobile 6.1 is a pro, in ...

Oct 13, 2008, 10:18 AM
for the Palm Centro 685 (GSM):
This is the Scrappy Doo of smartphones.
It's tiny, yet does so much. Cons (some are my own, but some are legitimate): Can't download games. Battery llfe stinks. Tiny Keyboard. Hard to text and e-mail on. No stereo headphones included, as with other Palm cell phones. If I put an 8GB card in it, it only sees 4GB. It has a cheap feeling stylus. Pros: Palm's OS comes with Facebook Application (MySpace application is to come) Decent camera. More compact than the Treos 650 & 680. It comes with ...

Aug 14, 2008, 4:04 AM
for the BlackBerry Pearl 8110:
I never thought it could be that good!
I've used many smartphones, but this beats them all. Why? 2mp camera and video. Bar phone Can handle sdhc cards. Sturdy Crystal clear calls Real-time e-mails Speedy internet (I'm doing this review from my phone as we speak) Strong battery life. The cons are too minute to even mention. This is a phone I'd even recommend to my enemies! Go get yourself one!

Jun 7, 2008, 1:57 AM
for the Pantech Duo C810:
The Duo's not for you, Bro!
I'm a big Windows Mobile fan. I've had the SDA, Q, PPC and XV 6700's, Treo 750, and many others. This is the WORST of all of them. It's bad enough to make me reverse and go back to my HTC Cingular 2125. Why? Read below!: What made me like it: Two keypads. Windows Mobile 6. Small and slick looking. Good enough camera. Strong reception everywhere. What made me ditch it: It's such a slow phone, man!! Ironically, it's a 3G phone. You can tell that Pantech ...

May 24, 2008, 9:43 AM
for the BlackBerry Pearl 8100:
Nice Phone, overall.
I got this phone for a friend (The T-Mobile one); and before I give it to them, I wanted to play around with it. I'm a Windows Mobile kinda guy, but this phone is impressive. Cons (few, but still there): No video. Can't sync and do other things simultaneously, like you can on Windows Mobile phones. It takes a while to load when turning the phone on. I may never get used to the keyboard. Who really can?! Pros: Scrollball. Camera, despite ...

May 11, 2008, 7:42 PM
for the Nokia 6230:
Too bad i can't give this phone a 6!
This is the best mid-end phone since the Nokia 6255 that I had during the short lived time that I was with Alltel. If att didn'd cripple their Nokia phones, then I'd buy another one! Pros: Strong Signal Awesome battery Good camera/video for being VGA Very compact. Is NOT a flip phone, like recent Nokia phones are. Has a built-in sync feature. FM Radio (Which att needs to stop removing from their Nokia phones). MP3 format. Bluetooth and Infrared, uncut. It has Edge, which allows me to access ...

May 6, 2008, 11:36 AM
for the BlackBerry Curve 8310:
Blessing or a curse?
You tell me! I gave up my Tilt for a Curve; the Red 8310, to be precise. I'm partially wondering why I did that?! I mostly like it, but there are a couple deal breakers , as you'll see below. Pros: Strong signal. Trackball is functional. It's a bar model, not flip or slider. Pretty good camera. Many downloads are availble, and more are to come! Can take the SDHC cards. Not big at all. Full qwerty. Compatible with Facebook. It accepts all my music files. Internet is ...

Apr 19, 2008, 4:42 AM
for the HTC Tilt 8925 / TyTN II:
Palm, Blackberry, and Apple need to take notes.
I change phones a lot. I traded with someone I know to use this phone. I'm infatuated with HTC's phones. I have used the 8125, 8525, MDA, Wing, 6700 (Branded by UT Starcom) Mogul/6800, and now this: the Tilt. As no phone is perfect, this comes mighty close. Cons: No headphones or case, like all of HTC's other current models. No pocket MSN. Pros. Windows Mobile 6. 3MP camera/video. The best I've used, to date! Over 100MB of usable memory. I get signal everywhere. Instant Messaging. The ...

Apr 7, 2008, 10:25 AM
for the Motorola SLVR L7:
The original SLVR is the best
What can I say? I have a thing for older phones. I have a Treo 650 (only because my 8525 bit the dust) and I have a SLVR as a second line. I change phones often, but this one may be a keeper! I've tried the SLVR of Sprint and Verizon (there was a brief time when I had both companies last year), and they are neutered as ---- {i.e. 15 second videos, NO Bluetooth OBEX (object exchange), no ...

Apr 5, 2008, 9:13 AM
for the Palm Treo 650 (GSM):
Ya know, it's not that bad.
I bought this as a temporary phone, until I can afford the phone that I really want. Pros: No dropped calls Unlike Windows Mobile (My OS of choice), the Xpress mail lets you put many e-mail addresses in. Liveable camera/video. Takes full SD cards (which are dirt cheap). Cons: Music blows, as I can't include WMA files. I'm not paying for real player. (Gosh I can't wait for when I can get an HTC phone). This'll do for now. That'll teach me to lose my ...

Feb 27, 2008, 7:44 PM
for the Palm Treo 680:
Treo 680.
Truth be told, I bought this phone for the sake of saying that I've had it. It's not too bad. It's much better than the 650 was, CDMA or GSM! Like: Reception: I gets it everywhere! Comes with instant messaging (after download from palm.com/us.) Not bad camera/video. It works well in the dark, unlike my 8125. Internet Explorer. Dislike: Battery life sucks, but what PDA has a really good battery life. The signature doesn't stay in the threaded SMS. It's only there on the first ...

Feb 13, 2008, 11:56 AM
for the HP iPAQ hw6510 / hw6515:
AT&T needs more Ipaq phones.
It's way old school; but good; overall. Pros. Good reception. Livable camera/video. Two memory card slots (SD and Mini SD) Good sound. Easy e-mail set up. Sturdy. Cons: Low, low memory. No pre-installed Pocket MSN. Xpress Mail wouldn't allow my e-mail addresses. I'm waiting for HP to give at&t a new Pocket PC phone. Question is: will it be as good as this one?

Feb 2, 2008, 2:07 PM
for the HTC Mogul / XV6800 / PPC6800 / P4000:
The Mogul was alright.
I had this phone during the short time that I had gone back to Sprint. Pros: Excellent 2MP Camera and video. HTC never fails with that. Decent reception. (You see, I live in Mesa, Arizona, and Sprint kinda sucks out here, regardless of the phone.) 160+ MB of internal memory, which provided lots of room for third pary applications. It came with 512 MB memory card, earphones, and all the trimmings. Decent battery life. Bright Screen. Windows Mobile 6. Cons: Same amount of Ram as other older ...

Feb 1, 2008, 2:33 PM
for the Palm Treo 750:
Better than the other Treos.
I've used many phones (click on my name to see all of the phones that I've used). Well, Let's get right into it: Pros: Windows Mobile 5 (Capable of 6, but 5 was good enough for me). Good battery life for a PDA. Threaded SMS, like the Palm OS phones. Unlike the 700wx and 650, the charger didn't need to be attached to the USB cord. Cons: My signature wouldn't stay in a threaded SMS conversation. Not-so-bright screen. The volume gets low after ...

Feb 1, 2008, 2:05 PM
for the HTC TyTN / 8525 / JasJam (Hermes):
Another fine HTC product.
Although I changed phones, this phone, overall was phenomenal. Pros: Clear 2MP camera/video. Good reception. Loud volume. Could handle all applications applied. Wi-fi capable. Sturdy. Not too big. Stereo Bluettoth capable. Cons: The PTT (push to talk) button was constantly pushed, no matter if it was in my pocket, case, etc..... Micro SD, which meant that my 4GB Mini SD was useless. It's hard to find replacement headphones for that phone that works. If you lose em', you'll have no choice but to but Stereo Bluetooth Headphones. Overall ...

Feb 1, 2008, 1:36 PM
for the HP iPAQ hw6920 / hw6925 / hw6915 / hw6945:
They need more HP phones out there!
I've used The Mogul, Wing, 8125, 8525, Treo 750, and a bevy of other smartphones, both Windows Mobile and non-Windows Mobile; yet the HP Ipaq 6915 is the best off all! Of course, no phone is perfect, but this is darn close! Cons: Battery life sucks, but then again, I do use many features, as well as my added on crap. The internet is kinda slow for the processor that it has (416 mhz). Whoever said that size matters was ...

Sep 28, 2007, 9:18 AM
for the HTC Wing / P4350 (Herald):
The Wing didn't fly high enough for me.
This phone was fun to use, and a pain, all at the same time. Where it soared: Windows Mobile {be it 2003, version 5 or 6, I just love Windows Mobile Phones}. Pretty slim for a Pocket PC [i.e. Professional (damn political correctness!)] Amazing 2mp camera/video. Where it floored: Like the Dash, it suffered the same ANNYOING fate: when you set an alarm or appoinment, be prepared to ring many times. Now, the last time I checked, snooze is supposed to mean snooze. T-Mobile's ...

Aug 13, 2007, 2:40 PM
for the HTC Dash / S620 / S621 (Excalibur):
I Dashed to get it!
Okay, so it's a corny title. I went to many places to get a good deal on one. Here's the roll call on my Windows Mobile PDA/Smartphones that's I've used to date in order: SDA [Still have it], Q, VX6700, Treo 700w, Treo 700wx, 3125, MPx220, Blackjack, 2125, MDA [still use it], and now a Dash is on my main T-Mobile line. I got the Dash because my SDA [although it still works, and makes a great second line], ...

Aug 4, 2007, 9:19 AM
for the HTC 8125 / 8100 / MDA (USA) / K-JAM / P4300 (Wizard):
Just what I needed!
I've had many Smartphones/Pocket PC's: SDA [I still use that one on my emergency line], Q, VX6700, Treo 700w and wx, 3125, MPx220, Blackjack, 2125 [and a couple Symbian and Palm ones, here and there], and now I have the MDA. Pros: Awesome camera/video (can be changed to 2MP for pictures). Durable phone, as long as you don't drop it on the front. Easy-to-use keypad. I always have no less than 3-4 bars of reception. Go, T-Mobile!!! Good battery life. Windows OS. Many programs can ...

Jul 23, 2007, 1:58 PM
for the HTC 2125 / 2100 (Faraday):
2125 Is decent, but I was excecting more.
It averages out to be a good phone. Pros: Compact smartphone. WM5 OS. Bubble Breaker Nice camera. No limit to video recording. Many programs can be downloaded to it. CAN do MMS, unlike my former MPx220. Takes Mini SD cards, which are cheaper. Windows Media Player plays excellently. Cons: Dropped calls in my house. Whether it's the sim or this phone, who knows? 19MB of internal memory [I always have a memory card, but still..........] No wi-fi {Blame at&t on that one. It's cousin, the T-Mobile SDA [which is my ...

Jul 5, 2007, 1:45 PM
for the Samsung BlackJack SGH-i607:
Pocket PC abilities in a Smartphone package!
My 3125 went haywire shortly after I worte the review for it. Go figure, huh? I got the Blackjack, since Best Buy was out of 3125's. I'm no stranger to Smartphones, especially Windows Mobile smarthphones. I've had (in order) the SDA, silver Q, 6700, Treo 700w, treo 700wx, MPx220 {Which my fiancee now has, it works excellently [even better than the Q]}. I like the Blackjack so far. Pros: Not a single problem w/ call quality so far. Camera/video ...

Jul 4, 2007, 8:01 AM
for the Motorola MPx220:
I just got my MPx220!
For an older phone, it sure holds it's weight. It's definitely better than the Q. Not an iPhone killer, but it does what it needs to do. Pros: Windows Mobile. I can try to use other programs, but they all fall short. Clamshell Smartphone. Not too many of those exist in America {Except for my 3125 that I needed to get rid of}. Okay Camera and video {What made it stay out of the "Cons" is that the zoom is ...

Jul 2, 2007, 10:28 AM
for the HTC 3125 / Smartflip / 8500 (Star Trek):
So Far So Good.
I've had this phone for 4 days now. I got it because the 6682 has failed me in many ways. I opted to get this phone over the Blackjack. I'd really rather have an 8525, but not for that price, ya feel me?! Pros: Great Reception. {Many times better than the 6682 [which I wish that I could destroy.]} 1.3 Megapixel camera/video. Truly awesome, to say the least. Clamshell Smartphone. Not many of these exist in America. Nice loud ringers and music. Can accep BOTH ...

Jun 20, 2007, 12:44 PM
for the Nokia 6620:
Oldie, but goodie!
I finally got my hands on a 6620! So far, I like it. Cons: Only 10 minute video record {but who of us that takes videos on their phones will really take more than 10 minutes on their video, except for the freaks?!}. Uses real player. I'm still a fan of Windows Media Player, but to each their own. Wish it had: FM Radio Video editing, like the 6682 does. Instant messaging. Pros: It's Nokia!! Great call clarity. Don't let the VGA fool ya! The camera works ...

Jun 20, 2007, 8:46 AM
for the Samsung SYNC SGH-A707:
My day with the Sync
This is a pretty awesome phone. Although I didn't keep it, I don't have many negative things to say about it. Cons: A little time consuming to get through menus. It only came with the phone and charger. Pros: Looks nice Call quality is good. Camera/video is good. Music sounds good. It wasn't a bad phone. It's a good replacement to the 6126 {I really tried to like that phone}. I just need a phone that has more, but is less time comsuming to navigate through.

Jun 16, 2007, 11:58 AM
for the Nokia 6126 / 6131 / 6133:
This may be a keeper.
While my fiancee is sampling my 6882, I'm really diging this phone. Although it's not the Smartphone that my 6682 is, it still rocks. Pros. Camera/Video. I like it! Nice & clear. Loud ringers & music Takes the formats of Music that I need it. It kills my EnV, as far as I'm concerned, because of the un-neutered Bluetooth OBEX. Good reception {for now, anyway} Cons: No accessories came for it. {Howerver, as a WSc warranty rep for at&t, I took this phone over a ...

Apr 11, 2007, 3:50 PM
for the LG CE500:
An Okay Phone.
I had this phone for a short time, also, during my short time with Cingular (the new at&t, or whatever). Cons: Low video memory VGA camera Small memory Pros: Mp3 Video/Camera Not too big or small All things considered, it was a decent phone, but I also see why it didn't last long.

Mar 23, 2007, 1:25 PM
for the LG enV VX-9900:
This the best phone I've used to date.
For people that want ONLY a phone, I'd advise you to choose something else, as this is much more than a standard phone. This phone has almost everything a CDMA phone could ask for, and was worth leaving the KRZR for. It's a PDA without the bullshit of a PDA. What exactly do I think of it?: WEAKNESESS: How come Verizon can allow full Bluetooth OBEX on this phone? Supwidat?! It's powered off on me a few times, but nothing to major ...

Mar 16, 2007, 12:03 PM
for the Samsung SCH-A930:
Great as a secondary line!
This is my first samsung phone in forever! My fiancee gave me this phone as a second line (I got her a Samsung a740 as a second line. It was only fair). She hated it. I like it. It gave me problems with the camera at first, but a hard reset fixed it. Cons: I can only zoom in on videos, not pictures. It falls prey to Verizon's OBEX disabling. No other cons that I can Pros: Excellent reception. Decent camera and video (even better ...

Mar 10, 2007, 5:53 PM
for the Motorola KRZR K1m:
The KRZR is sweet!!
What a cool phone! After 3 Q's in an 11 day period, I was itching to get into something else before my 15 day period ended (Verizon is quite strict about that), but wanted to stay with Motorola. Thank goodness for the KRZR (Fire Red, to be exact). I don't have too many cons about it so far. Cons: Verizon OS neutered the phone's natural functionalites! (They cut the internal memory nearly in half {19.51 MB, to be exact}, reduced ...

Feb 17, 2007, 10:04 AM
for the LG Fusic / LX-550:
What a phone!
I left my Red Razr for this phone. What do I think?...... Cons: Cant send pics & talk at the same time, as it will power off the phone. Can only send contacts via Bluetooth (There may be more bluetooth functions, but I can't find them). Pros: Sweet Camera/Video. 15x zoom. Pretty cool! Sprint TV is flawless in most areas. Sturdy; which is good because I'm clumsy Different colors The pc reads the phone easily Can receive Bluetooth files (couldn't do that w/ Red Razr Super loud ...

Feb 9, 2007, 7:07 PM
for the Motorola SLVR L7c:
I had to get this phone!
Since Verizon isn't gonna carry this phone until goodness knows when, I got this on Sprint, because Cricket doesn't go everywhere & Sprint includes a 64MB card (altough I already have one, but it's good info for those that didn't know). I still have time to decide if I will keep this or take a Fusic. Pros It's Motorola and it works good. Easy to use keypad Excellent Camera/Video for being a VGA Loud Music Plays Sprint TV well (only had minor problems) Good call ...

Feb 2, 2007, 4:02 PM
for the Motorola RAZR V3m:
I've been wrong about phones before, but.....
..... Motorola may have make something that works for once! This phone is pimp! Pros: Fits nicely in my pocket. Good Camera/Video It's not a Cingular RAZR. It plays both WMA & Mp3 formats! (Which is why I took my w300i back) Sprint TV works almost flawlesly Loud ringers. Call clarity is phenomenal (Except for my house {But then again VZW My Treo 700w & Cingy/at&t Sony Ericsson z520 that I use aren't they great in my house either.}) Cons 30 sec max (It's not the RZR's ...

Feb 2, 2007, 2:21 PM
for the Sony Ericsson Z520 / Z525:
Not as bad as people say
As a Cingulat WSC rep, you'd think that I'd stay away from this phone. But I use this as a GoPhone occasionally and it works just fine. Pros. Small Sony Ericsson Brand Good Sound Lotsa Bars Plays Ringers as cleat as hell! Camera/Video are okay. Cons. No Mp3 No Expandale Memory Video is 30-60 maximum. (Can't win them all.) For a basic phone, it's pretty cool; but when I can get a Sony Ericsson K750 or a W810i, then it's on like Donkey Kong, ya feel me?!
