I Want A New Phone!

6 10 2007

So, it’s been a few months since my brother Pete lost my beloved, SLVR and I’m finally eligible for an upgrade. Now, a couple of months ago, I wanted a Blackjack but thats the phone that Nathan has and to be honest, I’m totally over that phone. Since I didn’t want a Blackjack anymore, I’ve been looking around for other phones and I’m not a fan of the RAZR, I’m not a fan of the CRAZR or whatever you call it…but after searching and searching through the AT&T website, I’ve narrowed down the two phones that I want.

It’s between:

The Curve..

Here are the features for the Curve:

Overview

AT&T Exclusive! The BlackBerry Curve is the smallest, lightest BlackBerry ever with a QWERTY keyboard. It features a liquid silver finish with clean lines, curved edges, and easy-to-use trackball navigation.

The Curve is the first BlackBerry to support AT&T Mobile Music, an enhanced media player, and stereo Bluetooth® headset capabilities. Snap crisp photos on the 2 MP camera with 5x zoom and flash.

What I like about the Curve is that it’s got lots of features and I’m a features junkie, there’s a LOT of features in this one and I’m pretty sure that I can do without most of the features, which is why the Treo is looking pretty good to me. I’m liking the Treo because the Treo has iTunes capabilities and that is what I really like…haha.

So if the choice was up to you guys, which phone would you get?

Umm, I choose the first one, the Curve. I’m not a fan of having any kind of blackberry-type of device, mostly because I will never be able to escape the emails… but hey if that’s what you want, you’ll have everything you need in the palm of your hand. So yah that’s my pick. It’s mostly b/c I like the way it looks…

I also like the push to talk feature and 4 hours of talk time? Yah I think that suits you. Maybe ask how many hours talk time the other one has. Hope this helps!

Hugs,
Daph

Daphne and Izzy,

I don’t have much emails to hide from unless its from you guys so I’m cool with that..I like the Curve too, the only thing holding me back is that it’s not iTunes capable, the Treo is so I’d have to download another thing to upload music to my phone, the Treo I can just add songs from my iTunes. But I do like the Curve more.

Thanks guys for your input, I’m looking at the Curve right now.
