ANY NEW PHONES
There are always new phones coming out, although I think from a marketing point of view there might be something special happening at the end of the third quarter when school goes back into session. I couldn't decide on an Alltel phone myself, so I ended up with Verison's Samsung Renown that I purchased outright and had a rep keep my Alltel plan intact by reprogramming my handset. Now, I'm out of contract and have my 11 (10 + 1 bonus) My Circle numbers available to me.
If you are still in an Alltel market that Verizon takes over soon, and you want to keep your Alltel plan intact and get a phone at a promotional price, you're probably going to have to decide which Alltel phone availab...
Do you use internet alot? Is 3G imporant to you?
I am currently out of my Alltel contract and want to take advantage of locking in a new contract before I have to switch to Verizon.
Just make sure you get a desktop charger, several ideas can be found in the Touch Pro section of the www.pocketpcgeeks.com forum, and an extra battery, or two.
In fact, out of the top 5 smart phones in North America, Blackberry held 3 spots.
You would need a WINMO device and Skyfire, Opera Mobile, or Fennic for that. Skyfire being the best all around, but I use Opera for 99% of everything.
Now when Skyfire comes out for all Blackberry devices, it is in Alpha testing right now on the Storm I believe, I will try it out and more than likely use it as Flash will work on it so I can watch hulu etc. on it.
My Sister has the Storm on Verizon but I wanted to stay with Alltel another year hoping the Iphone would come to Verizon next year. No way, I am willing to move to AT&T's crappy service for a phone !!!
