Gonna need a new phone soon, advice please....

After reading this article, it seems the storm is a very impressive phone. The other phone I was looking into was the LG Dare...

The thing is I am in professional school and will be scheduling patients, making appointments, and needing to access my email on my phone

Bottom line I guess I need a more "grown up" phone than my current enV #1, which was an awesome phone.

Just looking for some advice on the Storm vs Dare vs waiting for a better phone to come out, if there is one on the horizon ( I am probably like most on this board wanting/looking for the next best thing Very Happy )

Nothing will come close to approaching the Storm for any use whatsoever. It is the culmination of what anyone could ever want in a phone.

To be more specific, it combines the user-friendliness of an iPhone with the functionality of both a traditional BlackBerry and a PC.

To touch on the Dare a bit, the Dare is a great phone, but it's child's play in comparison. The Dare doesn't have as much functionality, and the main difference everyone will be talking about is the fact that the Dare has the "other kind of touch screen" that is not capacitive like the iPhone's.

Hope this helps!

Do you need a Data Plan? Because all Blackberries require a data plan. If not and you want a PDA with a touchscreen, the Samsung i910 Omnia is coming out. All touchscreen windows mobile. You can sync it with your calendar and you dont need a data plan

Yea I figure theres no point in getting these new phones and not using them to their full functionality ya know? Even thought it is expensive, I'll bite the bullet and get the data plan
