Looking for smartphone compatible with verizon.

I'm looking to purchase a smartphone or something that is very compatiable with outlook. The best one would be a small flip phone - have a speakerphone and bluetooth. I am currently using verizon and would like to continue but the only thing I see is the cingular star trek phone. Are there any other alternatives coming out?
look at a Samsung i600 on Ebay.
I think this is still coming: »

No mention of the MOTORAZR V3xx or Max???

I just wonder since they were suppose to come out the fourth quarter of 2006.

Motorola was not even mention other then using the Razr as a comparison.

I think the preview is faulted; in that they did not cover all the manufacturers and to leave out Motorola; the leader it pretty biase review in MHO.
I tried to phrase the headline in a way that would make some sense to consumers, but basically it's a report from Pepcom's "Holiday Spectacular" press event in NYC. Only certain companies choose (pay) to attend such events. Motorola was not one of the...

Boring, lackluster phones with 4hitty 176x220 screens.. YUCK!! Come on, we're going towards the late 00's now people. Most phones should be QVGA by now. Honestly. Rolling Eyes

The only one that caught my attention was the D900. Otherwise the rest is garbage. Even my beloved Sony Ericsson failed to grab my attention. Sad Sad Where the hell was Nokia?
Agreed. When in the hell is Sprint going to come out with a slick slider phone? No more of these fat phones. Damn, Sprint. Always a few steps behind.

Other coming phones... Need info!

Rich, or anyone, I am wondering if anyone has info (specs, features, etc) on any of these handsets possibly coming to sprint:

Samsung M610
Sanyo 7000
Sanyo M1

Also, any better pics of the ICY phones (hybrid cdma/iden phones) would be good too.

Lastly while searching for skus, I found these, listed as current models, wondering if they are anything:

Samsung A500i
Samsung N400i (both blue and silver)
Man if that M610 has a 320x240 screen and can do mp3 thats the phone I want and badly ! Hopefully they can improve on the a900's battery life!

its about as perfect a phone as I could want save one thing. I hate flip phones :-( but I can live with i...

Pre-Preview? When is the holiday preview?

How can this be a pre-preview, does this mean that there is a Holiday Preview coming before Mid-October?
Just curious.
Mostly I just feel weird talking about the holidays a whole month before Halloween. It seems early to mention holidays, hence the extra "pre". Wink

There is, however, another nearly identical press event coming up in about a month, so yes, there...

LG LX-350

the side view where the headset jack is looks like theres a door below it for a memory card, and the button on the other side looks like its a memory card button. Any info? Seems strange that such a low-end phone would have a card slot... not that its a bad thing just strange...
my bad this thread should read "LG LX-150" not 350... Shocked
I'm not sure, but I think that's just the accessory / data port.

Samsung status LEDs?

It seems that no new Samsung handsets being released from this point on have status LEDs. Is this a cost cutting measure? How expensive can a few LEDs cost...?

Sep 23, 2006, 12:28 PM

D900 which carrier?

who's going to carry the D900? t-mobile?
cingular?? or is that going to come out as CDMA? probably GSM right? so t-mobile or
cingular?? wow... i'm trying to buy the t629
but if d900 comes out pretty soon i'm changing my mind!! well you can buy the unlocked ones for about $350 shipping included but too expensive for me... so please if anybody have info on the D900 release date and carrier please reply to this thread please.. THANK YOU
It won't be coming to a carrier. Samsung will be selling it direct, via

That was sort of the point of the whole D900 part of the article. Sorry if that wasn't clear.
