    Hey BHW,
    Its time again for me to get a new cellphone and upgrade from my old crappy original phone. Right now im with Tmobile and I still have about a year left on the contract so I pretty much have to stay. I just want everyone's opinion on what phone I should upgrade to from Tmobile or buy from a online store unlocked which can be GSM so those don't have to be Tmobile. I want a cool phone with my many features like email and messaging most likely and a nice browser also would be nice. Maybe a smartphone or touchscreen?
    I have a good amount of money I guess but I want be spending many $100's over a cell phone.
    Thanks,
    Mike

    Yea I was thinking of maybe buying a iphone 3g online unlocked or ill unlock it myself.
    Had a ipod touch and loved it.
    Only bad thing is no 3g with Tmobile and its expensive.
    Any other input on this?

    Sorry, but....
    What was the point of that anyways??? lol
    I mean, I still love those shiny green stars & all.....
    hmmmm :D

    @Sharpie- Check CL... and look for the "unlimited t-mobile sim".... then just buy a used iPhone and pop in that "unlimited everything sim card"...

    They're like $30 a month for UNLIMITED everything!!!

    pretty good deal if you ask me :D

    I just got a new BlackBerry Bold 900. It's ridiculously nice.
    Highly recommended.

    Yea I heard the Bold is very good.
    I was thinking that or the new curve they just put out.
    Hopefully they arn't too expensive without a contract.

    Nokia N97, the best smartphone the world has ever seen. It's like having a micro version of your laptop. :)

    I personally think there is NO SUBSTITUTE to the iPhone...

    Everyone keeps coming out with "competitors".... but none match up with the iPhone!!1

    even the G1 was supposed to have a multi-touch display, and Apple bitchslapped Google just for thinkin about it!! lol...

    If you DO buy one, don't settle for the 8GB... go for the 16GB... and have someone make that bitch Dual-Boot.... (talk to HaRRo about it... he knows all about dual-boot)...

    That motha-fucka'll be SOOOOO fast!!!

    Dual boot-
    You know how a computer boots up?? and runs really fast??
    That's what your iPhone will do...

    I don't know EXACTLY how to do it, but HaRRo was part of the Dev. Team, he should be able to give you a link to the site where they walk you though it!!

    I even heard of someone upping the RAM (not really ram, just increasing the 500mb it comes stock with)....

    If you could devote like 2gb to the OS on the iPhone... it'd run REALLY fast!!
