I just want a phone that makes phone calls. I don't need all the fancy stuff. Yes a camera can be fun and useful (when having a traffic accident etc can photograph the damage / person involved).

However, ultimately, I want a phone that has a long battery life, is easily rechargeable and makes calls without having to press a zillion buttons.

I like Nokia phones =D

I love my Sony Ericsson Walkman phone ... it's skinny, black and orange, has a phone, camera, walkman, internet, video calling, games :yadda: ... actually the only thing lacking is a radio .... other than that - it's perfect! orange is my favourite colour and it has more memory on it than my old laptop!

iphone -schmyphone when it eventually comes to the UK it is going to be one service provider too! how silly!

I think we are surrounded.

*whispers* iphone is the best thing since sliced bread. it makes me dizzy and lusty just looking at the things it does. the aesthetics are perfection.

Remember when the Razr came out and people went crazy for it? I think it went for almost $300 depending where you got it. Now its the phone that comes free or really cheap with lots of plans. Not that the iphone is going to come free but I bet after all the hype dies down the price will come down too.

I know! I got a ipod mini when they first came out and had so many problems with it. I wouldn't buy another new apple product until they've been out for a while and the kinks were worked out of it.

I agree, I think that was a mistake. I used to have Cingular (AT&T now) and the service was horrible so I wouldn't get an iphone unless they offered it with other providers.

I'm looking for a cell phone these days and I am SOOO confused. tri-mode, GSM, CDMA, bluetooth, blablabla... not to mention the confusion with respect to the different rate plans. :rollseyes: It's ridiculous. I'm reading dozens of reviews and forums to get a reasonably good phone (nothing fancy, just good sound quality, reception and battery life) and best plans. All the reviews I read contradict each other. Customer service seems to be awful no matter what company you choose. I have no idea what I will choose.

The iPhone does look really cool but... it's not for me. I'm more of a 50$ phone kind of person

As a tech junkie, here is my humble opinion.

1. never buy a first generation - too many bugs & features get better as later generations are created
2. Biggest flaw?? NO QWERTY KEYBOARD!!!

I will stick to my Treo.

did you see people are selling them on ebay for upwards of $1000?!?!?!?!

i came late to the Razr party, but I LOVE mine. I have a more recent release with some upgrades from the prior and I seriously have NEVER loved a phone the way I love this phone, and it does have an MP3 player as well, which I have yet to ever have a use for.

As for aesthetics, I am seriously disappointed in the IPhone. I couldn't freakin WAIT to get one, but then saw it and was kinda ech. While I think the touch screen is a really neat-o idea, I also know what the face of my 2 IPods look like and that TOTALLY turns me off, I can't stand smootchies. If I had no access to the internet, didn't already own 2 ipods, and didn't have a cell phone, AND wanted AT&T service, MAYBE I would consider it, but it's really just a waste if you have any of the 3 other components, IMO anyway.

Okay, I read the reviews and the hype.
