what phone do you have, and what do you like/dislike about it?

i have an LG chocolate 2 with verizon, but i'm thinking about upgrading. looking at the new blackberry storm.

blackberry 8830

i use it pretty heavily and i like that its QWERTY. ill never own a non-QWERTY phone again. i dislike that it randomly appears to shut down, but actually goes into standby mode
might get the touch screen blackberry whenever my contract is up since i have $50 towards a new phone with the "new every two" program

when i had a motorola Q (first batch), if you let the battery run out it would fuck itself up beyond user repair and you had to get it reformatted or reflashed or rewhatever. lol@that.

this piece of shit in green.
its a verizon enV, the first kind. i'm on phone number 4 and as of yesterday it doesnt recharge anymore...

this is the first non-flip phone i've had (zero problems with any of those) and i love the keyboard.
the draw backs have been-- vibrate function going, restarting, shutting off, not hearing me when i make and receive calls and most recently the no charge issue.
verizon refuses to give me another kind (ive offered to take a lesser phone) because there's an amount of times you must bring your phone in before they do that...well, refurbished phones are just working wonderfully...

that's the main reason i want a new phone. i'm so sick of not having a keyboard layout. i like the new storm because it's a touch screen and it is QWERTY. plus, i've only heard/read good things about blackberry in general. basically, it's an iphone w/out a flash for the camera which is a no care ever issue.

lol this girl i used to date had the limited edition orange version of this phone and it was the biggest piece of shit ever. it crapped out within a month or so of her getting it.

I've had it for like 3 years now. My parents were about to up the plan and I was going to get a Blackberry, but that's not happening now. Meh.

joe has that one, he likes it.

i have the LG Dare with verizon. i love it for the most part. sometimes i get annoyed that it's completely touch (i miss being able to text without actually looking at the phone), but i wouldn't trade it for any other phone right now.

either she got it when it first came out (i know she pre-ordered it) or it's a different phone and i'm mixing them up. either way, it sucked and she got rid of it.

I'd take a bold over the storm. I wouldn't be able to stand typing on a virtual QWERTY keypad.

After breaking my phone last weekend, I now have the LG Dare. I pretty much feel the same about it as bryana does, but it was only $26 so I can't complain.
