What cell/mobile phone do you own?

Hey guys, I did a search and I didnt find a similar thread. I read the G4 iPhone thread and it got me wondering.

What mobile phones do you guys own? Why did you choose that particular phone and what do you use it for besides making and recieving calls? What apps do you use the most and what apps do you wish it had if any? Any gripes on the phone you have?

Will you be upgrading or are you happy with what youve got?

Ill start. I have a BlackBerry 8530. I use it mainly for business. The most important app for me is the e-mail client, BlackBerry Messenger, MSN Messenger and I want to download Skype on it.

I wish the camara had a flash and if it a had a touch screen it would be perfect as far as Im concerned. It came with a 2GB micro SD card and Ive upgraded it to 32 GB.

I also use the music app alot. It syncs with iTunes no problem. Since it has a 3.5 milimeter head set jack, the sound from the head set is very good.

The screen is bright and sharp. So its just fine for viewing pics and videos. And it has a built it YouTube player.

I also use it to keep up with my FaceBook page. My only gripe about this phone is the battery life. I often have to recharge it half way through the day. Im thinking on upgrading to the Storm, but later on. I just got the 8530 26 days ago.

What about you guys?

LG something with touchscreen. At first it was annoying, but now I'm used to it. I only use phones for calls and texting and I'm not good technology. And I chose it because it was free.

I have a Samsung something, I can make phonecalls, and that is where it ends, apart from some rudimentary texting like :OK

I have no problems with the quality of the phone, but with the quality of my phoning....

I suppose we have the same issue then. That new function of my Nokia is probably the result of that.
Well, the phone quality is awful too, but that's not the point now.

I had a Samsung that broke when it fell from a table. This LG is quite strong though, and that's a good thing.

I have a Nokia 6300. It's a 'just a phone' phone, but it's very good at being just a phone.

Currently an iPhone 3G 16Gb white. Soon to be replaced with an HTC Legend.

Prior to that I had a Sony Ericsson K850i, Nokia N93, Sony Ericsson V630i, Nokia 6670... I've got about 13 phones floating about my room somewhere

A Samsung something too. It was a free phone with activation, and it's a dumb phone. I don't need a smart phone, nor am I willing to put up with AT&T anyway to get an IPhone.

I'm under T-Mobile though, which is a pretty good provider. The battery life is terrible though. With infrequent usage, I used to leave it always on for about 5 days and it'd be fine. Now the battery barely lasts 2 days. I've even changed a battery, it's still terrible. Granted, I've been using this phone for almost 4 years now. And it takes a beating too. I've dropped it many times onto carpet from the 2nd floor of the house to the 1st.

i own a blackberry storm 2 and it is a complete and total piece of crap and I would never wish it upon my worst enemy. It freezes on the reg, when its not freezing its not working very well, its slow, unresponsive, its a crappy music player, it wont sync with my apply computers, it sucks as a "phone" (ie, making phone calls and talking on it). It is okay at internetting, but sometimes sites come up blank on it.

However, it is amazing at linking with my work and personal e mails. For e mailing and doing other "business" stuff its great. Everyone else at my firm has all kinds of problems with their phones getting their office e mails, but not mine. the calendar is also good. And the camera is very nice!

Hmmm, Im surprised to hear that it freezes on you. My 8530 has a slower proccessor and less RAM than the Strom 2 and it has never frozen up on me and the OS is quite fast. I also have the same music player as you do and it works and sounds great.

Yep same here I have two biz e-mail accounts and two personal accounts and it links with them no problem. Same can be said for the FaceBook app.

Maybe you just got a lemon? I have a friend that has a Strom2 and his works fine.

I guess most members here just want a device good at being a phone. The rest is probably too high-tech.

Why i don't have a smart phone? Simply because it will be broken in two weeks time. My phone have to endure quite a lot, so i try to get good/simple phones. Why should you need to brag about a device..
