I'm a newb to smartphones. Been stubbornly holding out but finally I broke! I bought a Motorola Bravo from Consumer Cellular (yeah they market to seniors and I'm only 30, wanna fight about it?) as it is the only smartphone they offered at the time. Consumer Cellular offers amazingly flexible no-contract plans and... best of all... none of that AT&T bloatware! Must say I am impressed by the excellent coverage. I can pick up a signal in areas my Sprint could not.
