which cell phone to buy?



I currently have an i phone that I smashed for the second time.
The first time I fixed it myself with ebay parts but this time I can't because I super glued it back together haha I don't like cases for the i phone because I never feel it vibrate throught the case.

So I need a new phone. I need the same capablities as the i phone but I have no idea what to get. I was thinking the new 3gs but it's hard to justify buying almost the exact same phone.

So the question is...what is the best phone?

I currently have a 3Gs but I would have had the Palm Pre if they had it on Rogers. Its pretty hot with nice screen and multiple apps. I had many Treos and they were tanks, big but they never let me down.

wait, so you have a case, which doesn't protect it from breaking apparently, and yet the case is the reason you dont want the iphone?

Rediculous.

The iphone 3gs is the best phone on the market now. The google phone wont work properly with rogers bands, so you'll need to get on telus. Which means you gotta buy a telus 3G+ smartphone (they wont sell you just the sim).

Ditch the case, keep the iphone.

BTW i part out iphones, so if you decide you wanna sell your broken one lmk.

Look around, there are only two phones that people have.

Blackberry and iPhone


If you want cool apps, and toys, get iPhone

if you constantly need to be in communication with other people and need more of a tool than a toy, get a blackberry.

iphone is not a toy. More reliable and practical than blackberry imho. It's just ppl like to hate on it without even trying it b/c it's an apple product.

propr'one,
I took the phone out of the case because I couldn't feel it vibrate then i dropped it which cracked the phone. The glass is cracked and the black back case is cracked. It is still fully functional. How much is it worth to you. I will likely try to sell it

i actually think that there is too much hype over the iphone because it is an apple product and that there are better alternatives that can do more, but people who think the iphone is the best thing out there are missing out.

have you actually USED the iphone? This is more of a personal preference, but I think iphone is wayy ahead of ANY other phone on the market today. And no I have never been a hardcore Mac fan, I tried my friend's iphone and I was blown away,, then I got one for myself and never looked back since! my first apple product, ever.
