Shopping for a cell phone is hard.
really really hard.
For the record: I dropped my droid 2 in a bowl of salsa today. Still works.
glad to hear a droid can brave the fate of picante torture.
Unlocked Nexus S — works well for me.
I’ve looked at that one. Still unclear about the feature requirements for me, but it does seem attractive.
I’m loving my new HTC Droid Incredible. HTC Sense is pretty. I already dropped (Doh!!!) and it’s still working great!
You know what makes it harder? Not telling us what your requirements are ;-).
You know what’s even harder? Not entirely KNOWING what my requirements are. 🙂
Hehe, very true. Well, I just made the move to Sprint after being with Alltel for just under 4 years, and here’s what I got:
LG Optimus S
My wife and I both got them, and we’re actually getting ~1 month free service after all rebates and credits (there’s a credit for porting your number from another carrier).
If you don’t want a contract, and Virgin Mobile has good coverage in your area, the LG Optimus V looks to be a great option.
I’ve been happy with the Optimus so far (only had it a few days). Very snappy, despite being a somewhat entry-level Android phone. Has 2.2, and LG has promised a 2.3 update (they actually seem to be good on their promises). It runs ConnectBot like a champ, though the resolution is a little cramped.
I did not know what to do with it either, so I bought myself a $20 ghetto phone with $7/mo non-contract from Virgin. Worst comes to worst, I just discard it any time — no hard feelings or termination fees. Coverage not the best, but whatever, it works in urban areas.
