I need a new Cell Phone..suggestions?

post I need a new Cell Phone..suggestions?

Post by xxaznz on Mon Sep 14, 2009 5:56 pm


So right now I'm at the end of my contract and can finally rid myself of my pink moterolla razor! :] (the first generation)

I need a new phone, and was thinking of getting the Nokia 5230, but it's not coming out until around December in Europe. And i live in Canada ):

Does anybody know any cellphones that are good, kinda new, that not a TON of ppl have (like the LG neon), that I could maybe buy in Ottawa//Toronto, or online from a trusted place?

I have NO idea how to choose a cellphone, and I don't know anything about GSM, or q4 and stuff, so ANY help would definately be appreciated! :]

everyone would go for an iphone! I'm probably not the best person to advice but I choose cellphones based on their looks. I only need basic functions, as long as they have those, the prettiest will win lol.

Hmmmm I don't know if the Samsung Star or F480 are sold in Canada, but you could try going to a phone dealer and ask them. Here's a pic of my phone... it's called the Samsung F480


It's touch screen and has a micro sd slot for cards up to 4 GB. It has a 5 megapixel camera that's pretty decent... it also has a radio function that requires the pink earphones to be plugged in. Overall it's not a smart phone, but it's a nice and pretty simple phone.

Thanks Ann! :]
Haha you two, I can't just base my phone on looks! But if I did i'd definately buy the ice cream 2 Very Happy Check it outt

^Maybe I'm totally blind, but I don't think your phone looks anywhere close to Ann's haha. But i know somebody who has the same phone as you too :]

I also searched for the samsung touch here in Ottawa, and ovecourse because I live in the most hick town, we they don't sell it here...
I think i'm going to wait until I drop down to Toronto, and see what I can savage from there..

I know you think Blackberries are huge... but seriously, once you go blackberry you never go backberry!! (thats the line I say to everybody who gets a blackberry, haha) Really though, the blackberry is awesome! And you DO get used to the size. Or if not, the Blackberry Pearl is a smaller phone, and just as schveeet =]

Or if you really aren't buying my blackberry promotions... I like Samsung =] I HATE Nokia phones... I've always had a bad experience with them (but I did get the normal kind, not the fancy shmancy Nokias, so I guess I can't really call them all bad). Samsungs are really reliable in my opinion. I had a motorola too, which I didn't like. I didn't like the setup or the font... (I also don't like the Nokia font) which I'm sure probably isn't a big factor for you, but like Shelly and Christy I factor in cell phone looks a lot in my decision.

I don't know much about phones regarding technicalities, but I think most phones have an SD card slot anyways. Also depends if you like touch screen or not (personally I don't like touch screens) so that could help you narrow your decision the more you think about what aspects of a phone you like and dislike.

Let us know how it goes! ^_^

Hmm Lise...Is a blackberry reaaaally that good??
I hear a lot of people say Nokia's are reliable, so I'm not really sure anymore
As for a suamsung, I'm looking into those, but hehe just cause I'm a girl i also must have not only a phone, but an acessory Razz (which is the phone if nobody got that Razz)

What's everybody's opinion on LG's?

Haha, I'd also definately get the pomegranate..
At first it was totally believable, then it got ridonkulous. Razz

Lol i hear "you have a crackberry?" more than anything else. I like the blackberry, I have the curve 8330. It's slow as hell but I wished there was more apps out for it =[ or else i would of waited and got the iphone.

assuming your gonna be with either Rogers or Fido (they're the one wit hthe sim cards), Bell recently got it just for the iphone.

any ways what kind of phone are you looking for? something with texting? touch screen? Unlocked - asian phones (like the Lg Cookie, Sharp - i forgot the exact name), flip? shell? slider? Candy bar? Do you listen to music on your phone etc etc.

uh asian phones are usually phones that are from Japan? I think we can get LG, Sony Ericson..or any type of phone generally used in asia here.

Candy bar would be like,



Clam shell:


guess clam shell is the same as flip.

Apparently iPhones are all the rage right now. All my friends have 'em. I didn't notice at first, but after a while, I noticed in my accounting class that the moment my prof starts talking, everyone whips out their cellphones and start texting, and they're ALL iPhones!!!

And funny thing is, I had one in the summer except I traded it in my for Sony Erickson which I like so much better, but now I feel out of the loop. xD

here's my post:

my 'crappy' phone

it's actually not that crappy lol.. but hey I wouldn't mind to trade it with an iPhone!

what do you guys do on phones anyway?? Apart from being a 'watch', receiving calls and texting, I don't do anything else there =/ I feel like I'm wasting the features!

Ah! Samsung phones are wicked!
I think all the anycall commercials endorssed by hot korean celebrities made me want one really bad. But I like my phone just fine.

Haha I'm not a phone person - kind of technology challenged too. All I do is call and text, and play games when sitting on the bus bored out of my mind.
There are so many gadgets on here I don't even know how to use. D:
OOOH and I take pictures with the phone - best thing ever! I hate having to carry an actual camera around with me so phone-cams are great!

I love my Blackberry (I have the Blackberry Curve 8900 from T-Mobile). I think iPhones are interesting and definitely offer a lot in terms of applications and useful tools, but I've never been a touch-screen person. Also, I like to be able to actually press a button when I text because if I tap on a screen, I feel like I'm not really typing anything out. Maybe if I had an iPhone I would speak differently, but as of right now I am not interested in the iPhone.

Shelly did you ever end up getting a new phone? Or do you still have your old one? I have a lot of friends with iPhones/iTouches and they love them. Absolutely love them. I'd say they have a lot more to offer than blackberries, but I really love my blackberry and I ain't gonna let it go =]
