Time to buy a new cell phone

[ #17175 ]

I am starting to think about getting back to civilian life, so I need to get a new cell phone. I trashed my old one.

Geeks of world, help me out!

I don't need a lot of gadgets, but I would like:

  • flip phone, like my old StarTac
  • connects to Mac OS X and can use iSync (maybe with BlueTooth?)
  • Text messaging from the internet (i like to email my phone)
  • I like Verizon which has had very good national coverage for me.

And, bring on with the horror stories! Tell me why your phone sucks and why I should avoid it.

  • I have personally avoided owning a cell phone for some unknown reason. I think I'm just cheap; plus I don't like my regular phone, so why should I want to carry one around?

    But that's not what you were asking!

    This might help: link to macslash discussion [macslash.org].
  • I've had mine for about two months now and I've been pretty satisfied with it. Does bluetooth modem and iSyncing fine with the powerbook. Even found a version of PuTTY for it so I can ssh back home from anywhere.

    • There is a putty on sourceforge for PDAs/Handhelds, it [sourceforge.net] (s2putty) shows up on a google search for Nokia 3650 and putty.

      This Nokia 3650 sounds cool
