It seems to have most of the bells and whistles that matter, isn't the size of a small tv set, and when I played with it tonight in the store (I just happened to be 12 miles out of my way) the salesman said that if I wasn't going to get the $259 Samsung Galaxy 2 II then I might as well get the most bang for the buck, which as it turns out is $29 with contract renewal plus $18 "upgrade fee". T Mobile irritates me, but I really do have a good deal and the coverage is great around here.

    Now that I was forced to retire I can't be a geek anymore...:(:(:D
    Get rid of the landline. I got sick of paying for two phones, and having people call me on the landline and then call me on my cell seconds later and leave messages both places, etc... Now I use cell full time and love it, not to mention it doubles as a Life Alert.

    The Sidekick 4G is a great phone, just wish they would get Droid 2.3 out on it. :(

    Droid automatically upload all your photo's to your google account (it's just "cloud" no one else has access to them unless you put them on a google+ account or w/e) as soon as you take them...you can then download them directly to your computer

    I want to get into the Smartphone revolution. My problem is that I live so far in the hills that you have to drive 12 miles to get a signal. My wife and I have flip phones through StraightTalk just so we can have phones away from home. If we get smart phones it has to be through one of the pre-pay services, and they aren't as versatile or cheap that route. So, we'll just have to sit back and wait and see which carrier finally get's a tower down here, then get a contract with them. I doubt I'll live to see it, not enough population to support it, and way to many mountains blocking.

    I've had a Android Droid 2 from Verizon with unlimited data for over a year now.

    I like it. It's also my GPS and it can be used as a mobile 3G wi-fi hotspot for up to five devices.

    Check again, you have a 5 gig data limit each month.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.
