Default Buyer's remorse?

Please Login to Remove!

I bought the phone for $70 (phone upgrade) at Costco on a whim a week ago and plan to use it mainly as a PDA device. I guess I wish I had shopped around for a better price.

Then I notice that as a T mobile customer I could get the Curve 8900 for $150. So it is worth the extra $80 to get a Curve?

On a side note, I have a hard time downloading some of the Google applications. Map and Sync are hung up at 0%, after several attempts.

thanks.

This is all subject to personal opinion. What type of keyboard do you like?

I guess if I don't use the data plan, the need for a big keyboard isn't quite there. I'll use it more as a personal organizer. Typing on the Flip does take a while to get used to.

anyway, consider the cost of the monthly fees, the cost of the device really isn't that big of a deal I guess.

You bought the Flip as mainly a PDA device???? Hmm, in my view, the Flip is just the opposite - a great phone with other fantastic features. If you mainly email, text and browse, I would definitely switch to the Curve. Dave

Yes of course I use it as a phone, and PDA because I tend to forget my tasks and meetings.

I spend most of my time in the office in front of a computer already.

I'd probably use it for the same but even then I find flip phones easier to use for some reason.
