More Phone Issues

For those of you who know me in the real world, my cellphone finally kicked the bucket last night. Which is good, because the phone absolutely sucked anyway, with horrendous reception, constant dropped calls, and generally being a cheesy, poor-quality product.

So I’ll be unreachable by phone for the near future. You all know my email address, so that’s the best way to get a hold of me.

  1. Was that your Motorola Q? I’m telling you, other than the sucky battery life, my BlackJack is bitchin’

  2. No… When I got the Q, I had kept my RAZR but gave it to Joanna and saved her phone (low-cost entry-level Samsung model). The RAZR ended up breaking, so she got a new phone, and when I got rid of the Q, I went back to the Samsung.

    The Q was nice, except a bit slow and the battery life wasn’t very good. If I had to do it again, the new 2nd-generation might make a good phone, but I might switch over to the new Blackberry 8830 or a Treo as my next one, as I think Motorola is still “young” as far as smart phones are concerned.

  3. Mine jsut died as well. Ended up getting a dunk in mountain dew.

    I ordered a T-Mobile wing (HTC Herald) to replace it. I jsut got it today, and other than the headset sucking, I’m really happy with it.

  4. Hey Brad –

    I’m also in the process of shopping for a new smart phone, and second-gen Q seems to be even more sluggish compared to the first-gen (more features, but without the needed boost in processing power). I’m really leaning towards the Blackberry 8830 right now, as that seems to have the most refined implementation of the smartphone apps I need.

  5. Quincy,

    My brother-in-law has the 8830, and absolutely loves it. I think he said that if he had a choice between that phone and another Treo, he’d stick with the Blackberry. He’s used quite a few smartphones (including the Treo and Q), and this has been his favorite so far.
