I realized that there are numerous threads here regarding phones.. and since i'm a complete phone junkie, I know almost everything about all the smartphone, blackberries, sidekicks and pocket pc phones out there. I personally had all 4 of them actually and hacked into all 4 of them. So just post any questions, problems, which phone should I get, and I'll try my best to answer your questions.


ps. i'm not a fan of the icrap, i mean iphone haha jk but nevertheless, I can answer some of the basic questions on those.


1. Which phone is best for you???
This ultimately depend on what kind of person you are. Here's the breakdown for each phone:
Blackberries = Smartphone
I would suggest blackberries almost all the other brand of smartphone just because they are more stable, reliable, and plain faster. Even though blackberries run on a different Operating System, it is still seen very common and VERY user-friendly. Simple menus, buttons, and no instruction manual would be required. It also have a decent web browser (however, always download opera mini for a faster web browser), camera is usually great, most blackberries now have a external memory slot. So Blackberry is for those whos sophisticated, but still want something simple.

Sidekicks:
Very simple but not great. Mainly for teenagers who only text, IMs, emails, and perhaps internet browsing. Internet actually is very bad on the phone, but messaging service is superb. Would not highly recommend this phone unless you are someone whos trendy and mainly use phone for messaging and calling ONLY.

Iphone:
VERY similar to the sidekicks, however, included many beneficial upgrades. It is compatible with thousands of applications and therefore, give the user more options to use. It is also very very fast but I find the screen sometime hard to type on. Sometime, browser can be hard to handle in my opinion and therefore, I'm not a fan of a touch screen based phone. This phone is for those whos fashionable, but yet want to be up to date with the latest technologies.

Pocket PC:
Now, Pocket PC (PCC) is my FAVORITE type of phone. Why? because it is customizable (not the visual looking way but the inside) You can completely change how it function from the original by doing something called 'flashing' the device. Now flashing takes a bit of a time and sometime can be frustrated. However, it is very rewarding to find that you have almost build a cellphone internally by yourself! The phone's speed can change, and most of the time, it is both touch screen and keyboard. The applications can be altered just like the iphone and can even make your phone look exactly like the iphone. All of this requires time, skills, and patience. Without any of this, it is very hard to deal with a pocket pc phone. Therefore, I only recommend Pocket PC to those who know what they are doing in the technology field and have the time and patience to do it.

Hope this little phone review will help you to choose what kind of phones you want in the future.

yepp sidekick easily breaks but you really should be careful with the curve as well. the screen can easily crack.

your local craigslist.org

however, its gona be a little hard to find the curve under 200.. you might have to check craigslist every single day or buy a pretty beat up one. (however, i need to tell you that if you have big thumbs, its SUPER hard to type on curve)

what you mean by unlocking and locking? you mean that you unlock the iphone so you can use it with tmobile? and when you put games and background, it re-locked so it will only work with ATT? you can DL many games for iphone from the web instead of from ATT.

just google iphones games or iphone background and you should find a bunch

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=ip ... h&aq=f&oq=

heres a listing of google's search result of iphone games.


ps. no problem breakitshamy!
