In a few days I'll be eligible for New Every 2 with Verizon. I want a phone that will help me keep myself organized. I'm not really interested in having the phone do work that I would do on my computer, I just want to be able to keep up with my contacts, my schedule and have a phone that works.

Don't get the 700P! It is a waste of time and money. It will only give you problems. I've had 5 replacements all year. So have a couple of my friends throughout the country. Check my negative user review for it for more details!
