New Phone Suggestions

My brother is in the market for a new cell phone and we both have T-Mobile.  He usually buys the phone out of contract because he has the old (now grandfathered) $5.99 T-Zones data plan and it still works for his data usage.  Right now, I'm using his hand me down G1.  However, if I can convince him to get a new phone that he likes better than his Nexus One, he'll give me his Nexus One for free :)

He doesn't mind going to another carrier, so that really eases the burden.  I figured I've been getting a lot of good input on these posts, so why not ask my lovely commenters?  What kind of phone and what carrier are you using?  How do you feel about the two?

  1. I have an iphone so I dont know if this helps any, but I enjoy it. I wouldnt necessarily recommend it though, but thats because the novelty has warn off. I'm also with Fido and im satisfied with them, but I dont think you're in canada so.. also irrelevant again.

  4. T-mobile is awesome, I dunno why you would switch? I have a Blackberry Bold with T-mobile. I find the keyboard way better then fidgeting with a touchscreen keyboard.

  5. i'm using verizon, and it's pretty damn terrible. Extremely high service costs, and limited coverage in some areas. I guess if you're in a big city ex// NY or LA, you'll be fine, or if you've got a family (their family plans are pretty decent). Otherwise, stay away from verizon!

  7. Tell him to upgrade to the Nexus S. If he already loves the Nexus One, he'll probably go for the upgrade.

  8. Nexus S is the best option. If too expensive, one of the free Droid phones.

  9. I have a DroidX myself. I love the phone. Does everything I need it to. The Nexus S does look pretty sweet though.

  24. I'm not in America, so I can't comment on carriers. But I really want a Desire HD. I've played with them a bunch, and they are really really good.

    Great blog, I'll be sure to return.

  25. All I know is T-Mobile carries a bunch of Androids and Nokias. Luckily, Nokia is now exclusively going with Windows 7 Phones. So, the cheapest or free phones will be just awesome within the year.
