    Ugh, I needs me a new phone and you can help me choose!
    I know I posted a thread about haggling earlier, but my attempts seem to have failed.

    T-Mobile wants $450 for a BlackBerry Curve, which seems a bit ridiculous.

    I found a Nokia N95 for $370, which is my current front runner, but I also found an HTC S621 for $300.

    The big thing for the N95 is the Camera and the Multimedia player, but it lacks a QWERTY keyboard, which I've grown used to.

    The S261 has a full keyboard and Windows Mobile (which can be a good or bad thing), but the camera is only 1.3 megapixels with what is probably a lousy lens.

    Basically, I'm weighing the pros and cons of the N95 and the HTC set, and I'd like your input.

    I've made it a poll, but other suggestions are welcome!

    NOTE: I am not canceling my contract to get an iPhone. I do not care for it, nor do I care for the cost of AT&T's plans.

    While not a bad suggestion by any means, my iPod is dying and my phone lacks a camera. If I can consolidate three gadgets down to one, that would probably be the ultimate solution.

    Well, it does, but the camera is only 1.3 MP, there's no 3.5mm headphone jack, and I'm not too fond of the Palm OS.

    I didn't! The board must have glitched out.

    Why not just buy an iPhone. It has a camera, is a phone AND an iPod. Plus GPS and everything else you can imagine.

    It would also require me to shell out:

    $200 Early Termination Fee to T-Mobile
    $200 for iPhone
    $100 a month for service

    Plus, AT&T has some of the crappiest customer service I've ever had. There's a reason I went to T-Mobile.

    Originally when I posted. prior to seeing your earlier statement as to not buying one

    What I meant was buy one and a sim unlocker card. Then use it on T-Mobile's service. But still prolly more than you want to spend.

    At least you are not stuck with Roger's service!! We can't even get 3G yet.

    Plus the SIM unlocker cards are kinda patchy when it comes to whether they work or not.

    I was just looking at t-mobile phones and the new samsung behold looks kind of neat. it is touch screen, mp3, and 5mp camera.. I have a first gen iphone unlocked on t-mobile but I am thinking about buying the samsung just for fun to see how it stacks up. I would love the 5mp camera on it.
