Motorola has some new CDMA phones scheduled for later this year that will be available for Verizon subscribers.  I'm waiting to see them before I consider switching from Verizon in order to get a Razr.

Had a Razr for a few months.  Overrated.  Didn't like it.  Went to a Treo 650.

So let me get this straight...they collect cell phones? Do you pay full price for these phones? I know they can get pretty expensive. Is it easy to switch phones once you have service?

For Sprint Users, the now discontiuned
Sanyo 4900

Is probably the best sprint phone ever, for:
reliability
reception
clarity
talk time

I dont want to upgrade to a "in production" newer phone.

I LOVE my Sanyo 4900 !

More cool stuff on the horizon. 

http://www.nokia.com/nseries/  (click Inside Nokia Nseries)

The N91 looks really good.  I had always preferred and Windows smartphone but I have been using a Symbian series 60 device for the past week and I realy like it. 

For those of you that want to know about the new Windows mobile 5 that was just released here is great techie video that tells lots about its' capabiliites.  It even shows the phone that I started this thread about :)

zackhugh,  another device shown is the HTC Universal.  T-MO will be using this as the next sidekick device.

WARNING: this video will stream but is a total of 173MB and about 45 mins long.

Man, I hope that SGH-i300 comes out for Verizon. I have a motorola e815 and it's nice, but I'd prefer something like that by a longshot.

Sorry Maxabaker,  Initially the SGH-i300 will be GSM only.  There are many nice devices coming out for CDMA too though.

WOW....great links....thanks Darkgear!

There is also afterdawn.com in addition to those great sites. Not sure, but I don't think I saw it mentioned yet.  I was able to get Motorolas mobile Phone Tools software there for my V220 so I can upload/download pics and mp3 clips, edit mp3s, and synch it to outlook  etc. The software is pretty good.  They have the programming software there too but I was too worried about messing up my phone to try programming anything.  I haven't delved into hacking my phones yet.

Phone Modding is much easier than light modding.  I modded my wife's RAZR V3.  New Flash, new flex and some SEEM editing and now it has video recording and over 7 MB free plus many other minor features.

Got a chance to check out that HTC Universal online.  That's definitely a cool phone and solid upgrade to the Sidekick II.  It's better in every way.  I guess I'll have to upgrade once they become available.

Well I thought the SGH-i300 was cool.  8 month later here comes the SGH-i310

8GB phone and it still has a micro SD slot.  2 MP Cam. built-in stereo speakers and WM5 AKU2 with A2DP(stereo bluetooth support). 

Sweet!

I'm seeing Cingular advertize a Motorola phone called SLVR (Sliiver in case I've got their spelling wrong). I think the RAZR is a neat phone, an acquaintence had one when they first came out. I just don't need any of those extra features really. I found an LG phone that has a good speaker phone and voice command/driving mode, and couldn't be happier. Since I tend to get a new phone every five years, it feels like a big advancement over the old Kyocera 2035a!! I'm happy, but easier to please!

Yeah, I've been toying with the idea of buying one of these SLVR phones.  I like 'em.  I have a RAZR now, but frankly I've never been 100% satisfied with it.  It's a great phone, but there's just something about it that bugs me.  Yet the idea of the same phone without having to do the flip part, plus the addition of iTunes, makes the SLVR tempting.

Can anyone tell me if the V3i or Slvr L7 supports A2DP? Was looking to the V3x but realized that it's bulkier than the Razrs, no wonder it doesn't carry the Razr prefix!
