Cell Phones

Postby myturn07 » Tue Aug 18, 2009 5:10 am

Hey all!! Ok, so I am ready for a new phone, old one has had it . . 2 years old etc....

I have been with Alltel forever, now we are Verizon. I do not need a Smart phone.....don't! Plus, I let my kids have one so they have got the bill high enough!!!

I am debating on these 2 LG's....LG Dare and the LG Envy Touch...

Any comments? I really like the Dare, but it has worse on-line ratings, and then of course my DS says do not get the other one!! Basically said touch screens suck!!

I am tired of flips!!

Any insight from your experiences would be appreciated! :lol:

Thanks for the input. (Tina give Annie a kiss and hug for me tomorrow!)

I am about to order one, my DH cannot believe I have waited this long, I was eligiable on 8/4, and my current phone is crapping out!!! It is a flip and the hinge is basically broken!!! I hang up on about 2 out of 5 call that I try to answer!

It just sucks though, my 2 kids are on my plan and both got new phones in April (still Alltel then)....they will null there Alltel contract and let all of us go to a Verizon contract *(which surprisingly is a tad cheaper)....BUT, and this it the big thing.....they have to pay FULL PRICE for Verizon phones!!! WTF??!!!

OK, finally got them to see my way and are giving all 3 phones to us at the 2yr price.

Oldest DS has a BB Curve, wants the new BB World. So they tell me that if he gets the World, I can get a Curve for free :roll: :? I don't want a BB!!! Free, ok...but extra $30 a month!!! ggrr!! I do not need all that stuff, although I am sure I would grow to love it!!

Youngest DS wants the Envy 3...(only because I told him he could NOT have a BB!!!)...

So, I can get all 3 phones for only $300 out of pocket, and then $175 in rebates....what to do, what to do!!

I am getting something tomorrow afternoon, period!!! If I do not get the free Curve, most likely I am looking at another 100 out of pocket, which sucks!!

Maybe I will like my lil Pink Curve...oh lord, I will ALWAYS be connected!!! That is scary!!!

Oldest DS is the techy...he says they are giving the Curves for free b/c they are lst yrs models and every other carrier has a newer model of the Curve.........so???? I'm not in it for the technology!!

I have seriously spent too much time stressing over a flippin phone!!! Just goes to show how much the world/society has changed!!!

Later!

K what did you go with?

I dreamt I had broke my phone last night and had to go back to my pink razor flip that has been tucked away for sometime now, need to donate it, DH wants my now phone and I like you do not know which I would prefer, or need???

A friend of ours just got a BB and loves it, getting my last phone, I wanted one but talked myself outta it... :roll:

Too many computers, and too many phones, huh? I sit in my office now and 3 computers on my desk, DS walks in last week, sits in chair and says " most people have spare pens, you have spare computers" I have 3 laptops and 1 desk top, now how sad...

OK must share what you went with and what you think about it... :D

C-ya,

Nothing yet.....may go get tonight, but most likely Thursday night, oldest son is coming home from college for the weekend, we are afraid if I go and change over off of the Alltel plan to the Verizon plan, his Alltel Blackberry will not work.....so will wait for him to get here and all go to the store and get everything transfered.......

Still leaning toward the dreaded Pink Curve BB. (funny, I am used to typing BB on here and it mean belly button!! :P )

Keep me posted, I too looked into the BB curve, like what I see this far --- tell me what you think about the keyboard and the battery life on it, that is IF you go with it...

I went to get the BB way back and was talked out of it, I hear a lot more + than - about them... 8)

I like the pink as well, my fav color to wear in clothes, sunglasses, eye glasses ( even tinted lenses, so I see pink too) purses, pink John Deere, bangles/bracelets, big wide belts, nails, pink Ford ball hats, awww ya got the pic, yep, but not to decorate with, my flip was pink, and I do pink covers, so cute and girlie it is, keep me posted... :D

Well Lisa, I ended up with the Blackberry Tour, which is the newest one that Verizon carries....not offered in pink though! Figured if it was free, may as well get the best!!!

DS got the same one, he showed me a few things really quick before he headed back to school...big tailgate party for the GameCocks, more important!!!

Anyway, I have a lot to learn, and very little patience!!! I am off today and should really spend a couple hours setting up some stuff on it, we shall see!! 8)

Pretty good money wise...DS Tour was 229, mine free, youngest DS got Envy3 for 79, so 319 total out of pocket and I have 150 in rebates coming...PLUS....I used 1 $100 rebate card that I have had since June to buy the phones......so what is that, 75 bucks total out of pocket when all said and done!??!!

OK Lisa, it is official.....I love it!! I am a crackberry addict!!!

I have learned alot about it, driving my son crazy with questions but that is so much easier than reading the manual!!!

I got the first new bill already and did not even have a heart ache for adding the required add ons for me and youngest DS (he did not get BB but got the added vcast stuff which is 15 a month...he will be charged by mom for that and his insurance, oldest always had to pay for the extras before he went to college)

I seriously need to cancel hom phone though...we never use it!! I just can't let go for some reason! :roll:

Getcha one!

I have been waiting for your feed back, I think about and almost do it, then I say no wait, then I think "OK now is the the time, and I back out, Do I just do it???

You have the Tour, yes? (yep I see you do have the Tour) --- Or is the Storm? What do you think about the battery life, is it working for you, and what about the keys are the easy to use, not too small???

Looking forward to hearing back from... 8)

FINALLY found my keys here in MI, I'm off to sling a bit of mud before it gets to dark...

Hugs to ya beautiful,
Lisa
