I use what work gives me, since they pay my phone service. Previously a blackberry which was decent enough. Currently a windows mobile 6 phone which is a piece of shit.

Going to need getting a phone of my own in a few weeks though, and almost 100% going for an android phone of some sort.
My wife's got the samsung epic which is awesome.

I use the most hackable phone available atm, a htc hd2, it came with window mobile 6.5 on it which was ok but have since tried ubuntu, windows phone 7 and android, currently running a desire hd android rom on it, due for upgrade soon but think i will keep this phone and sell the upgrade.


You jest sir! the N900 is the most hackable phone ;)

You know what is funny but I think actually texting and making a call on my phone accounts for about 10% of it use, (which is why I got Pay as you Go) the rest is internet, gaming, taking photos or videos, watching a film or simpons eps, lisening to music or the radio and the main featrue is the great GPS and Map service thats got me home a few times when I got lost on long jurneys, it amazing to have so much on a phone. I recommend a smart phone to anyone even if you dont make many calls it is the best all in one tech device you can get, so really you should just treat the Phone as one small feature of the device.

To true. I bought mine as a small computer, it works very well. Great camera too. And with TV out, a bluetooth keyboard and some Wii controllers, a great actual computer/games machine.

oh, and it does phonecalls! that was a nice extra ;)

I have to throw my cards in with the why bother crowd. When I needed one it was either provided by my employer or I used a cheap pay as you go phone (like the phones from Virgin Mobile).
But frankly, I don't like being available at all times or being a slave to my phone. And texting? Far too torturous on my finger. Smartphone functions? A phone's display is too small. I might consider a 7" tablet, but a phone display? My eyesight isn't that good.
And I'm sure there are mobile phones with as high a resolution as my digital camera, but I doubt they have optical zoom.
I'll leave these easily lost or destroyed toys to those of you who favor them.

Samsung Tocco Lite. Uses their touchwiz interface (now named Badu). Nice phone, does what I need, great battery life.

Perhaps it's the phones I've tried it on recently (HTC Desire, Wildfire & Samsung Europa), but I just do not like Android at all.

I bought what I thought was the cheapest option for doing internet lite things a year ago - this faux Blackberry Boost Mobile thing. Keys are tiny as hell and surfing the web is a complete joke. Company pays the monthly bill, but I literally use it maybe a few minutes a week. So... I'm thinking about simply changing over to one of those phones that's $10 (you can actually see the display and buttons too on these models) and something like $15 a month - that's literally all I need. The Boost Mobile/Sprint network *still* sucks and I've been on/off 'em since the late 90's. In fact, NONE of these modern phones are worth a shit as telephones go. Reception and that underwater digital sound is absolutely horrendous to these ears. What? Huh? I spend more time filling in the blanks and pretending I heard what the other person had to say on these silly things. And apps? Pffft.

Cell phones to me are quite offensive and the way people abuse them today is even more so. Sickening how many people have the bloody things. Can't wait for them to become banned due to mental health and cancerous reasons. The asexual nerds of today sure seem to love 'em though! :lol:
