tell me what to buy...

My new every two is available on verizon and my contract is just about up. I want a smart phone.

I am trying to decide between staying on Verizon and getting a blackberry or a Droid, or moving to AT&T and getting an iPhone.

I live in the DC area. I don't really talk too much on my cell, so I imagine I'll use it for texting and internet more than conversations. DH talks on the phone a bit more than I do.

DH is also ready for a new phone, so he'll get whatever I want to get. We'll combine our plans and are willing to pay up to about $150/month for both of us. As far as the phones themselves, free or cheap would be awesome, but I don't mind dropping money for something great. 

For context, my current phone is a razr, and his is a flip phone from 5 years ago, so we're not fixated on getting amazing technology.

Re: tell me what to buy...

  • My DH and I switched from Verizon to AT&T in September for the iPhone.

    I absolutely love the iPhone, but really dislike the AT&T network.  Verizon's network is by far the best.  So I guess you have to weigh the pros and cons...iphone vs. Verizon's network.  

    Happy shopping!

  • Rumor has it that the iPhone is coming to Verizon this summer.   I love Verizon!  I have an old Blackberry Pearl and my husband has the Droid.  He LOVES the droid more than any other phone he's had.
  • Get the iPhone -- you will love it. 
  • IMO, AT&T has a horrible network. DH and I both have Blackberrys through Verizon but we are planning on getting Droids when our contract is up. I like my blackberry but DH's sister got a Droid for xmas and it seems to be a step up from the BB.
  • I have had a Drioid, Iphone & Blackberry. And I got a new BB today so that tells you what I like!

    I would talk to people in your area and see how the AT&T service is. Also, if you can wait it out, I would to see if the Iphone is moving to Verizon if you really want it. 

    As far as texting go's. I would go with a BB, I like have a keyboard. I just got the Bold on T-Mobile today and so far it is my favorite phone I have had.

  • iPhone probably isn't worth the A T & T network- especially in the DC area.
