CDMA Phone for Me

Post by dicecca112 » Fri Jun 05, 2009 12:25 pm

I need a new phone, I have a Samsung Sway, and its just horrible. I need something unlocked and that works with Verizon (ie needs to be CDMA). I'm looking at the Blackberry Storm, Samsung Omnia and LG Dare. Anyone else have any recommendations? I am looking on Newegg right now, anyone else know where I can get them. Not to sure about Ebay

Don't get the current BB Storm...the new one is coming out in about 6 weeks. The current one has issues and a lot of people have reported dust behind the screen etc. My wife is waiting for the BB Storm 2

This phone is terrible. I am constantly texting people from my butt. The lock can be overridden by hitting the OK button 3 times.

I heard the new software upgrade for the Storm should solve a lot of issues. I have a Storm and can confirm that it's current software is poo. :vom: I might just switch back to my old razer if its still poo.

I like the HTC Diamond, but I can't find one from a reputable retailer

Dust isn't an issue, but I'd wait for the Storm 2.

I wish I did, but my phone was an inch from death.

Just to let everyone know. The I.R.S. is thinking about charging users that use their work phone for personal use. Unless you can prove that you have two phones, one for b. and one for p.. You maybe will be taxed. Word.
