Help me find the right phone!!!

I currently use an LG Lotus. I can sync with my outlook email at work, but not the calendar.

I need a phone that will do the following:
1) Sync with my outlook calendar and email from work
2) Go online to read Facebook etc...

3) I do not need to download music etc..
4) I do not need to watch TV or Movies on the phone.
5) I need to be able to adjust the fonts to larger one as I have problems with vision
6) I am a heavy texter and it doesn't matter whether its a ful lkeyboard, querty or otherwise. If the phone is a touch screen, I need for the screen to respond to fingernail touchs vs. finger touchs.
Thanks for your help!!!

Frustrated with Android!!!

So first off I've had my EVO since may (i work for Sprint) and I have loved it. I'm getting more and more annoyed with Android every day tho.

First 2.2 turned the battery life to crap because no task killers work anymore. Eveyone that's gonna tell me task killers are bad might as well keep their comment to themselves, the fact is the battery life is better with one than with out. Now my phone gets so laggy tho its ridiculous. I can close every single app, and turn around and go back in 20 seconds later and there are 15 things starting up.

I'm sorry but if random ass programs starting up whenever they want without a way to close them and without some sort of option for the user to control that was done on purpose by Google, than that i...

Lotus Notes on ATT or Verizon devices

I have recently joined a company that uses lotus notes for their email server, and the only immediate options given where all Blackberry devices. I have had a blackberry for the last couple of years, and really would like to try a Driod's or Iphone's. Do any of the these phones come with the ability to upload Lotus notes email server? Or have a way to use Lotus notes? I went to ATT and Verizon, and they couldn't tell me an answer.

Grasping RAM, ROM, Flash, User, Built-in, and External Memory


I’m doing a report about Smartphones and the carriers for a non-profit organization called UCAN ( I’m finding your site to be very helpful.

I’m trying to understand the seemingly interchangeable terms for memory that I find at different sites. I see RAM, ROM, Flash, User, Built-in, and External. The first and last a clear. Some phones don’t show a ROM spec but they show a Flash spec. I know that Flash memory is not RAM because it’s slower and I gather that it usually contains the OS + apps. Do some phones have the OS stored in a EPROM (i.e.ROM) instead of flash memory or are ROM and Flash the same?

Some phones show internal USER memory. I assume this to be part of either the flas...

Three Quarters of You Are Using Your Phone in the Bathroom

Samsung passed along these survey results and I thought you folks might find them interesting. Of course, I would NEVER use my phone on the commode, but apparently a lot of people are okay with that :-)

16% use a phone during a funeral. 10% during the throes of passion.

Cell Site Activation - Upstate NY

I know there are many factors that go into determining this, but what's the average amount of time it takes for a carrier to turn up a new cell site? A new 4 panel array went up over a month ago in the Albany NY area, and no service yet from it. The only carrier in the area to use 4 panels per cell (2 long, 2 short) has been VZW due to their 850 & 1900mhz service. This is a shorter site and it's being used to fill a small, but densely populated area. How much reconfiguration is usually done to neighboring sites? I'm guessing they're running fiber ethernet to this site for their 4g push. These two things would probably lengthen the amount of time it takes to put it into service. Does it normally take a while to turn these up?

Also - some ...
