Default If not your blackberry, what do you use as a cell phone?

Please Login to Remove!

I know some of us like using a blackberry as a data only device and then carry a cell phone around as well.

I am one of those people, I carry a 8700R and a Nokia 8800 Scirroco Edition in Black.


What do you carry at your side?

I used to carry a RAZR when I had Verizon and Tmo... The RAZR was for my social outtings at night to places where I didn't want to look like a geek!

Edit: Nice new forum!

Besides the Pearl (which is my house phone), I currently have:

KRZR is my new weekend unit (LG White Chocolate KG800 is on eBay)
Nokia 6630 for Japan (and other countries when I want to use 3G)
Motorola v60 just because
Several other old school jams just to shock people (Motorola Select 2000e and StarTAC 8500 are my favs to do that with. They take full-size SIM cards. :p)

I also have another T-Mobile SIM card which carries service provided by my company. This is in a Motorola V188 that they provided. Hopefully this will change to an 8700 soon, and I can drop BB service from my personal line.

BlackBerry all the way. I don't see the point in carting around a ton of technology, and BlackBerry is great as a converged device so I use mine for email and phone.

Hm i myself dont see a need in carrying one device for data and another for calls when one unit has it together.

As far as the Pearl goes it fulfills all my current cellphone needs.

How is Manila right now? My Mama is from the Philippines, I went to Manila and visited the amazing mall when I was 14.

Sorry, totally off topic.
