Blogs and your cell phone

I am looking to SERIOUSLY upgrade from my normal phone to a smart phone of some sort. I have a firm belief in not getting anything new until "the old" breaks, so my cell phone has been acting up lately, so I am looking to upgrade...WOO HOO!

One criteria I have to have access to my firms email, so based on that I have narrowed it down between the iphone, the Blackberry, and the Droid. Do you carry either one of these?

So chime in ladies...tell me which phone do you carry and how well does it perform when you 1) check-out other blog posts, 2) post to your own blog or just tell me 3) how does it work over all??

Thank You , and happy Friday!  I'm off to see Harry Potter :);)
Pin It!

iPhone all the way baby! ;) There are apps for everything, and I do like both my RSS reader and the app I use for posting to blogger. And a ton of other things... :)

I used to have an iPhone but dumped it for a Droid. I have a blogger app for Droid, and have not had nearly the problems with this phone that I had with my iPhone (some of which were caused by Apple and some by AT&T's lackluster network). My husband has a Droid Incredible, though, and I love his phone WAY more than mine, so if I could get a new phone right now, I'd go with the Incredible! I don't like the Droid X, it's too big.

I love my iPhone! Honestly, I have not yet used it to post to blogger, but it is great for surfing the net/checking blogs/etc.. there are SO many awesome apps, checking e-mail and twitter are a breeze... some fun games.. :) And it is a really great actual PHONE, as well, haha. It is the one to get!

I have an iphone and LOVE it! My kids have the Droid Eris, and it's a love/hate relationship. One daughter had to have it replaced 3 times in one month! The other is on the 2nd one. Calls drop, texts mysteriously disappear. Strangest thing. However App wise - they both have amazing apps, so it all depends what you like better. I plan on sticking with my iphone. And yes those of you who caught it, we have both Verizon & AT & T. I could save like $100 a month if we just had 1 company - I just didn't know if I would LOVE the iphone enough, so I didn't want to change everything. But when contracts run out - everyone is moving to At&t even though I like Verizon better. Oh well.

I have a Moto Droid (the older version with the slide out keyboard) and love it. Browsing, including blogs, works well. I haven't posted to my own blog from it since I don't do very many text-only posts and my desktop is so nice for editing pics and such.

When I had to choose between the same three options, I rejected a Blackberry because the screen seemed too small relative to the other two and passed on the iPhone because I've heard too many stories about the overburdened network making the phones slow in some places. Also, my geeky friends at work said the Droid was cooler. :)

If your considering the iphone you're probably on ATT network or considering the switch..I've heard numerous times that their networks gets really bogged down..

I have the Samsung Epic and its pretty freaking epic, massive display which is vibrant, blazing fast (4g), front and rear camera, tons of apps (any droid). I have a blogger app which makes it very easy to post on the go, and it lets me attach photos I've taken.

Like Karen said the screens are very nice on droids. If you require a keyboard droid is the way to go since the iphone does not have one. The virtual keyboard on mine is great to just type, as well as "swype" I also have a pull out full keyboard.

I use to have a blackberry and it was a good phone but nothing great or earth shattering. I say droid :)

Hey Jackie! I love your blog! I use the Iphone from at&t,and love it! It really is a,"touch screen" phone. Very easy to use....(I was worried at first when I bought it,because I used to have a blackberry which I did like,but had no signal with where I moved to.) Anyway...I hope you enjoyed the Harry Potter movie(which I adore, and read all seven books,I'm big fan too of the movies too.)

Skip the Blackberry completely. They have not kept up with trends and they apps SUCK! iPhone= great apps, shotty network. Droid= awesome phone, great network. I carry a my touch 3g slide from t mobile which runs on the android software and i love itt.

Jackie S. said...

Thanks everyone, I'm very close to making my decision, I will definitely let you know what i choose!

Driod it. I've got a Droid now and it's the best thing I've ever done for myself as far as phones go. Don't get a Blackberry. I had one, loads of my friends had one. And we all thought the same thing. It's great for a bit, and then it goes down the crapper. :(

I vote Droid. But either the Droid or the iPhone are good options. :)
