Ok folks, give me your opinions of which fancy cellular that does everything you like the most and why?
My brother has the Motorola MotoQ which is nice but not sure if it can do mp3 playback or not, prob limited memory. But it's not an option, I'm sick of entering all my contacts and new numbers into each new Telus CDMA phone.
With a SIM card you take it out of your old phone and put it in the new phone. When you go to the UK or Europe you get a local SIM card and away you go without exorbitant long distance roaming rates. It's a no-brainer.
The UTstarcom 6700 looks nice too, and cheap @ $99 with 3yr, but again only CDMA.
The blackberries are ok too but getting a bit more pricey. $250 cheapest from Rogers for a Pearl.
I'd like something with GPS and mapping capability for riding as well. Ya, I know, prob not waterproof but zip lock bags work wonders.
Fido only has the Nokia E62. No more hiptops which were cool.
Oh, ya, the other advantage with the SIM card is you can keep your old crappy phone for when you ride, snowboard, ski, mountain bike, etc so if it gets damaged or rained on it's no big deal.
I think Bell.ca has CDMA only too.
Any suggestions welcome.
