Future Phone Decisions....

I'm taking a break from studying for my first Tax test (gasp!) to talk about my future phone decision.
It's almost time for a new cell phone. My track ball only scrolls right, and sometimes the screen just decides to go dim. I have to turn it off and on several times in a row and then...MAGIC! decides to work again. I'm really missing having an alarm on my phone, too. I love having the full keyboard on my sidekick, but it is lacking some features I didn't realize I'd miss so much.
For my next phone purchase, I'm considering the Samsung Behold in Espresso.

It's a fancy new touch screen (Fun!), but I'd be without my beloved qwerty keyboard. I've had my date with Blackberry, but it didn't go so well. I couldn't figure out the interface.
The other phones I've been considering require a data plan. I don't do data plans. I don't need the internet on my phone. I only really text about 5 people, so it wouldn't be worth it to me. I love having the full keyboard, but I think I could adjust to life again without it.
I still have some time to weigh my options. Unfortunately, nobody can beat the awesome plan I've had with T-mobile for the past 6 years; otherwise, I'd be switching to AT&T and have my iPhone in the mail tomorrow.


  1. Love the phone know that Life is not a dress get what you want...and the phone will not last if you are not that pleased with can always get a new phone when you contract runs out again.

  2. True! There are a couple of other phones I really do like, but I refuse to pay double per month because it requires the data plan. Call me old fashioned, but I just wouldn't use it!
