Hi, I am so much a newbie android user that I have not got one yet and there lies the problem. Currently I have a Palm and a phone. My palm is on the way out and my phone is a dinosaur. So I have decided to grasp technology by the throat! We tickle it anyway. I am not a social networking person and will not be surfing the web constantly. My most important requirements are a full contact database (including postal addresses notes etc not just email and mobile number) a calendar with various recurring apptmnts, a todo list and a coming up agenda type thing. Finally I want a phone which I can text on. Not too worried about email but it would be nice. I would like about a 3.2 in touch screen and a landscape QWERTY keyboard (virtual or pull out) for entering in the calendar, todo and text messages. I also do not want the phone to keep using data transfer. I want the calendar on the phone but to sync it with either outlook or google occasionally but I MUST be able to use it offline and then just update the PC or net. I have tried the HTC wildfire and it seemed OK until I could not use the landscape keyboard to enter appointments in the calendar! I have since looked at the Samsung Galaxy Apollo. Looked good and used landscape keyboard on the calendar except to use the calendar you had to log onto the internet!!! Oh and I also want low budget as I am not going to use all the fancy whistles and bells that you are paying for! I am tearing my hair out here! Does anyone know of a phone that has the very few items that I need but all on one phone? Any assistance would be much appreciated!
