I have been going crazy lately back and forth to stores buying and cancelling lines... The sales ppl don't seem to know much and the time and money I've waisted is ridiculous! My current situation is I need 2 phones, one for my 11 yr old daughter and one for me. My son and husband have iPhones and will not consider anything else. I recently had a iPhone which died, AppleCare sucks , I'm using a go phone now ,my contract ended on 6-1-10 so I'm able to switch carriers for myself and daughter if there's better ones out there. Cost for plans isn't a huge issue due to my husbands employee discount rates available through verizon AT&T and sprint. 27% off all plans and features, 0$ activation fee, 50% off all access. and %50 off cost of phone for a new or upgraded line ( apple doesn't apply to the phone discount )... My daughter needs a phone which can text easily, fast Internet and emails, good camera and video recorder, nice app store, social net sites and YouTube is a must. She likes a querty keyboard and touch screen plus needs a sturdy phone , size isn't important... great sound quality for voice calls is a must as well as wireless syncing and ability to run more then one app at a time. I bought the motorola backflip 2 weeks ago and will be returning it asap! It's a horrible "smart phone", not worth the data plan at all! It sticks when dialing, camera never works and the querty keypad gets stuck as well. The motoblur is annoying and the android market is horrible :-( I did love my iPhone , easy to use, nice touch screen and apps. I do not like the way apple controls the phone ( not being able to run adobe and flash, requiring apps for basic functions like gps and camera editing as well as not being able to remove the battery)...plus AppleCare sucks! I need a phone with a lot of storage, Internet and emails, good gps and custom texting options, speed is a huge deal to me, standard headphone jack, USB charger, wifi , apps for productivity outweigh any apps for games. Wireless syncing, long battery life, sturdy and smooth touchscreen, I'm really looking for a mini computer phone with a great camera, large high resolution screen, easy to use but with options to change the things I don't like. high sound quality for voice calls and speaking texts would be amazing. I'm interested in a querty keyboard as well as touch keyboard, plus ability to use bluetooth. I know the sprint evo is getting high reviews , I'd probably love it but I haven't seen a good option for my daughter on sprint.... Thanks to everyone who took the time to read this! I'm desperately seeking advice from anyone who knows about the types of android phones and carriers that could work for me .
