The Worst phone you've ever owned...
 
Now that I'm happy with my Curve,I can now ask fearlessly whats the worst phone you guys ever owned?

And why did it suck so bad?

Ill start off.

The worst cell phone I've ever owned was a Motorola RAZR on Sprint.What makes it even dumber is that I bought it for $250 online because it was the 'Red' edition phone.

I discovered the color was appropriate.
What Motorola did was half-a$$ port a UI that not only was slow,but lagged horribly on the most basic tasks.Think waiting 5 seconds to check a stored phone number.And may Heaven help you if your text message was over 2 sentences.

Because once you got to sentence #3 your words started appearing 10 seconds after you typed them.Keep going and the phone would just crash.

Even on standby the RAZR had a nasty habit of lying about its battery life.See,let's say it lasts 5 hours from charge to dead.It will show full bars until hour 4,then it'll go to yellow and red in the last hour.

Yeah,it sucked.And because I bought it out of contract there was no exchange option available.

Wirelessly posted (BlackBerry 11000 Colosol)

I would say any device I owned that had windpows mobile on it. I hate the reboots and all those random crashes

I would have to say that I am not a big fan of my 2g (1st generation) iPhone. Even with the updates and the restores I do not find it very reliable. I get my text messages late, phone calls that go straight to my VM and the push email is not all its cracked up to be. The texting on it is absolutely awful, sending an email that is more than a few lines is a no- go and I hate the fact that I have to purchase apps to make the phone as functional as I would like it or what it should have been out of the box.

I'm hoping Santa takes care of me this year so that I can do away with this POS.

RIM BlackBerry 7230. That thing (on T-Mobile) had big reception problems for me indoors.

Palm 700P. Dropped calls all the time, freezes and resets all the time. I put up with it for 3 mos before dumping it.

Keep it and use it as an ipod. The browser will also still work on wifi.

In all honesty, I would say my first generation Iphone. The Iphone was SOOOO hyped up in the beginning, I was scared to death to even use the damn thing. Always thinking I was going to drop it or somehow it would have slipped out of my hands and crash to the floor. Plus the whole lack of keyboard thing REALLY killed it for me. I knew what I was getting into prior to buying it, but I didn't think that the lack of a REAL keyboard was going to make that much of a difference. It sure did...it sure did. I used my Iphone for 2 days and got rid of it. 8-)

I completely agree.... The iPhone is the most overrated POS ever!!! It's pretty though :p

Not even close. The Storm takes that title.

LunkHead 12-17-2008 06:45 AM

I love the Storm :)

The T-Mobile Shadow was my worst ever..... Had it for 12 days (tried to stick it out) and sent it back with the quickness.. The device was horrid in my opinion....

Nokia. I forget most of the models, I had a few. But I HATE Nokia's - esp the 5110, oh yes I remember THAT piece of s***.
Before my BB and iPhone, I switched to Sony Ericsson devices, and as far as phones go, they are very good.

I HATED THE NOKIA'S though. I hated the stupid menus, the non-intuitive navigation, the stupid fascias that came off so you could change them (but often just fell off)

I HAAAATTTTEEE YYYOOOOOOOOUUUUUUUUUUUUUU NOKIA


I HATE YOUR STUPID COVERS



Oh who started this thread? I've got to go and have therapy now. The bad memories are all back :? :? :? :cry:

Motorola RAZR on Cingular . . . 1st gen iPhone on AT&T . . . and more recently, for the brief 10 days of ownership, BB Storm on VZW.

Raptor464 12-17-2008 04:22 PM

LG C1300. Worst phone ever. After a year or so the battery life was only a few hours. Near the end it got so bad that the lcd wouldn't active upon opening.




strike2tamu 12-17-2008 09:26 PM

I have liked all my phones...

Aroc 12-17-2008 10:15 PM

Wow. Some real Zack Morris phones (or close decendents thereof).

Too funny. I had that phone from PrimeCo for a while also, and it did suck pretty bad.

I had one that topped it though; LG 4NE1 from Sprint PCS.

Article on this piece of FOD.

My wife and I got these phones when we first came to Sprint from PrimeCo after they folded and became Verizon. Funniest thing would be that the phones would never have comparable signal even when in the same room. One might have full signal, and the other would be roaming even when sitting side by side. :?
