I'm thinking of getting one too. I'll probably end up with a Razr with the student plan from Telus.

Verizon sucks and rocks simultaniously, knowing that you can get coverage just about everywhere, and your calls don't drop like they do with AT&T...

but they totally jack the phones on you. the chocolate is cool, but irrelevant. the Q kicks ass, and their data packages are second to none.

It really though depends on what city you live in. And in mich (as i now see). you should go with alltel.

edit: i have a verizon with a chocolate for my personal use and a blackberry 8703 for work. mmmm. cellphone delishiousness

Meh, I don't think I really need any special features. If it can make calls and text message, I'd be happy with it. I just like the feel of the Razr and love the materials it's made out of.

They seem a bit excessive to me. These "all-in-one" devices have a history of failing. I would rather have a cell phone that only makes calls and an iPod.

I mean, the interface is great, I'll give them that it's a fantastic design, i just don't think the functionality will be up to par with say, the newer ipods as far as doing exactly what it's supposed to. i mean, the iTV was heavly touted as being 'awesome'. but in reality, the xbox360 does the same thing better and for just about the same cost. besides, i have a personal vendetta gainst mac lately because they've yet to come out with decent Bluetooth support, and right now that makes my life a living hell.

I'd rather have an Ipod that made calls than a cell phone as a media player though.

I have a Chocalate and its okay. The buttons are very sensitive and there is no speaker phone available unless you download something.

I got a Sanyo MM-8300 with Sprint. Its a pretty old phone but its a tank, It started Blue, but after the 20+ drops most of the paint is scrapped off and its black now. Its battery last me like 3 full days on a full charge though so I love it.
Sprint on the east coast = uber l33t.
Sprint on the west coast = noobcake.

Cell phones are expensive. For me to get one, it'll run me about $50 CDN per month, plus another $100 or so for the phone. Plus, I'd be tied into a contract for 2 years. That's a lot of cash. I know somebody that had a $500 cell phone bill one month. A lot of my friends regularly hit $100.

what is minimum wage in canada??

$8.00 I believe. It's been going up pretty steadily for a few years now. They're trying to make it so you wouldn't be living beneath the poverty line if you work a 40-hour work week at minimum wage.

Seriously, that thing would be a chick magnet like no other. I wonder if I could get my hands on one, and whether or not I'd be able to get service for it?

No kidding. Hadn't thought about that. I was blinded by images of all the beautiful ladies that would be fighting over who could get close enough to get brain cancer from my kick ass phone.

You would not be able to activate that phone as it is not E911 complient which is required by law per the FCC. Although if you were to switch to Alltel (my employer) we still offer bag phones for our rural customers, yes phones in a bag that look like damn military issued war zone phones.

I'm sure that big phones like that have been created for novelty-use but they still have up-to-date technology.

Alltel has awesome coverage in the north west, but we don't have retails stores in that region meaning you couldn't get a local #. You could on the other hand buy the Alltel bag phone and use it w/ any other CDMA provider in your area. I use one for my Jeep for when i go way out to 4 wheel and it gets service anywhere my damn Q doesn't...
