I use Nextel. Awesome phone (i730) but doesn't have all the nifty features and gimmicks in the kids cellphones of today. It's sturdy and has a walkie talkie. Also it's a VERY easy phone to hack and put in freee games and ringtones.

Edit -- I also wanted to add... It's probly the most expensive of the phone providers, but worth every penny. Best cell phone service I've ever used. :D

Thanks for the tip, Mor911. I live in NC now, so I'm probably going to stick with Verizon (I've tried other providers, but Verizon just seems to be the best in my area, for whatever reason).

I was just hoping to find some sort of forum of rabid deal-finding cell phone enthusiasts so I can get a nifty new phone without digging too deep into the pockets. Actually, the Samsung i600 and i700 are two phones I have been considering....

www.howardchui.com = the review/literature site

www.howardforums.com = the forums

Excellent site altogether.

I'm still rocking the i95cl. Actually, I got it for Christmas last year. I like to stay at least two years behind the curve. :lol:

Have you tried Alltel? They don't have a great phone selection but they have some good ones. I guess it depends where in NC you live. Here in Charlotte I get signal wherever I go.

Muck.....many thanks for the tip. That site looks superb. Trying to score myself a PDA phone - maybe the Samsung i600 if it is still available - on the cheap. Don't know how cheap I'll be able to find it, though....

Byroan -- hadn't looked into Alltel yet. I've tried just about everyone *but* them, actually. I'm in Durham....not sure how the signal is here, but I know exactly where the Alltel store is in my corner of Durham, so I might meander down there this week. Thanks for the heads-up.

Thanks, everyone, for all the info. I knew I could count on my friends at FinHeaven to hook me up.
