Default Which Smartphone should I buy..

Please Login to Remove!

Well, because I am a "phone freak" I have the urge to get another phone. I have had the Pearl and the Curve. I am thinking about either Palm, Tilt, or the iphone.

I know you all may be bias, but I just want "the best"

Thanks

No person here can answer that question. What's best is best for you and you are the only one that knows that. Statistically, BBs dominate the worldwide pda market. HTC/Motorola are way back. Symbian devices, Apple, and palm follow the BlackBerry.

This also should be moved to the handheld forum or the BlackBerry vs whatever forum

Palm = get used to constant reboots

Only really still around because the IR is used by realtors, and threaded sms. Everything else is done much better by other devices.

Go with the iPhone. It is coolest device today. Try Bold tomorrow. Look for something coolest the day after tomorrow.
Life is short, enjoy it.

It depends on your needs. But from those three choices, definitely the iPhone.

Tell everyone what you want to do with your phone, so that the replies can be tailored to your needs.

If I had to chose between the 3, I would pick the iPhone. My second choice would be the Tilt. My Mom has the Treo that runs Windows and it's not too bad.

as a friend of many iphone users, you seem to be fond of the iphone than the blackberry. However, its a matter of preference on the features. blackberry for the win =]

The best would be the device that has the features and/or benefits that best suit your needs, lifestyle, budget and desires..........They are all good phones - however beware - the actually phone part of the IPHONE is junk........poor volume, poor reception and poor call quality compared to the Curve.......

My daughter recently upgraded to the Motorola Q. She loves it! It's like her version of the Blackberry. She's always surfing the net now. The other day she was using to surf for homework help instead of using the laptop.

Default Q vs BB

I have the original Q and have not problems with it. However, everyone I know says to get a BB that I would love it. With the Q I am able to connect it to my laptop and use it as a modem when I need to and it does not cost any more. Can I do that with a BB? Why would I want BB over the Q? I really don't know the main differences. Funny thing is when I go in to Sprint and ask them the differences, they say it is pretty much personal preference. LOL Lots of help there.
