Phone to travel with !


Aug 6, 2007, 9:34 AM
Hey All - I'm going to be 6 weeks in Europe, and want to replace my old Nokia with something around 200-300 bucks. I'm a AT&T guy from WAY back, and will be using it with them on return. Been reading a LOT and know just enough to be dangerous LOL ! Heres the phones I've liked - any thoughts:

SamSung Black Carbon/SGH D900

Sony W580/S500(that AT&T contract ends JUST after I leave .. might get this later once it's got the 2 yr contract discount)

Can you tell I want a slider? Or a candybar...
They just feel more durable and my phones normally last me a cpl years.

Also - whats a good sourse for buying .. ? I've read a few horror stories about tech support if you don't buy through a carrier. NEWa...

Just make sure the handset you choose is either triband or better yet, quadband and you'll be fine.

Let's don't forget to make sure the quadband is unlocked so if you want, you can pick up a few prepaid SIMs from the various wireless carriers overseas in the countries you'll be travelling. Beats having to pay at&t's monthly international roaming and dialing fee as well as the at&t rate per country for roaming.
