Staniaszek's father, also named Piotr Staniaszek, said his son thought he could use his new phone as a modem for his computer as part of his C$10 unlimited browser plan from Bell Mobility, a division of Bell Canada.

My original V190 Motorola is falled in water and since it doesn't work properly. I bought a nes one Unlocked but it's defectuous. I called to motorola Canada and they said to may they will not respect the warranty because ebay is a third part and an official supplier. As already pay about 50$ CDN for manutentioning the products I look for a better solution.

I am looking at these phones:
Palm Treo 600
I have read really bad things about the treo...
If you had to choose, which one would you pick and why?
Would they all have the same coverage in Atlantic Canada and/or the rest of Canada?
