    Just curious to know what cell phones everyone is using and who likes what carrier...

    A week or to ago I got the Boulder G'z One by Casio... Been a big fan of LG phones but this one is waterproof,shock proof and dust proof...
    I got the "Push to talk" Feature with Verizon Wireless. It actually works better than my nextel ptt...
    The only thing about it is the only person that I know that has the ptt is my brother.. So it has a way to go and I am sure that it wont be too popular until they work out a deal to ptt to nextel customers.

    The other feature that I like with this phone is the GPS... Its all talk activated... So you record the address, city, state, zip code and it navigates from what you recorded!

    My other phone is an Old School Motoralo i530 with Nextel... It is what it is....

    What about you all?

    iPhone, AT&T.

    Love the phone. I have nothing against the network except for their ban on 3G Slingplayer usage and the lack of tethering (without jailbraking) as an option on the iPhone unlimited data plan.

    Blackberry Pearl 8130 from USCellular w/ National Coverage - I'm getting tired of Blackberry's (too "work oriented") looking to go back to a "fun" phone, such as the iPhone.

    Daddy, do you have the Dynolicious app? If so, how do you like it & how accurate is it?

    I normally go through 3-4 different phones a year. Everything from flip phones to PDA phones. My most recent phone is the Blackberry 8330 (aka, the Curve). I've surprisingly had this one for quite awhile now (since last year). Mostly because it works so darn well and there's nothing else out from Sprint that looks like it's even worth my time. And after going from Windows Mobile to the BB, I probably won't go back to a WM device until version 7 comes out. And it doesn't help that RIM takes forever to release the CDMA version of the GSM phones. Not to mention, just in general, Sprint kinda slacks off when it comes to offering new awesome phones.

    Sprint works quite well in Central TX where I spend most of my time, so no real complaints about the service. Good voice quality and fairly speedy data, both on the phone, and when using Phone as a Modem.

    Here is a pic of the phone in the truck via the Pro-clip mounting solution.

    iPhone with AT&T for both work and personal. I love the phone and it works good for what I need it for. I don't have any coverage issues where I use the phone so I don't have any complaints with AT&T. My only complaint is the lack of tethering on the iPhone like Tobias mentioned but I don't have a need for that much anymore since there are apps for just about anything I need.

    I do have it but have never really given it a good workout. Maybe that's something I should do soon. :D
