    I have AT&T service. My current phone only works as a phone. I'm going overseas in January and need something that will do internet and text and whatnot as well. Some sort of Smartphone. Can anyone recommend something that is user friendly, sturdy and relatively inexpensive?

    iPhone. It's not the cheapest smartphone but it's worth it.

    Quote:x2. Really, they are just as cheap (sometimes cheaper) than other smartphones with a data plan. The plan is what gets you, but you would be getting the plan anyways, so might as well get a nice phone! [​IMG] I can justify $200 for one, and I don't like spending money! [​IMG]

    I just got the new Samsung Focus, which is the new Microsoft Windows Smartphone, and it is awesome. Can't recommend it enough!

    So 75% of you think the iPhone is my best bet. [​IMG]

    Any other thoughts?

    The iphone is OLD NEWS. Apple is beginning to slip, they've done nothing innovative at ALL with the iphone 4.

    I recently switched over to the Android Platform, phones run on Google software. I have the Evo 4G through Sprint.

    IT IS AMAZING!

    I won't ever go back to a "regular" phone. The Evo is fantastic, it's a little pricey but to me it's worth it. There are lots of Android phones now, through several carriers. The iphone is still bound only to AT&T.

    Quote:Apple is lacking a little bit, but I think it will pick up. Their update cycle is landing soon, which is going to have a massive new CDMA iPhone, which I hope catches on.

    They were falling behind with computers in PC vs. Mac years ago, but they are still here! [​IMG]

    Yes they are! [​IMG] I have an android phone and hate it with a passion. But it is Cupcake, so it is old. I love the Droid and Evo though!
