    I have never owned one, but now I need one. Any suggestions? I want access to email and internet, as well as texting.

    Man I want a iPhone so bad, anybody owns one cuz I need to know if it's worth the price tag and the hassle of using only AT&T.

    If you've never had a phone before then you dont have to worry about which carrier you'll need if you want a specific phone. I would go with the new iPhone. ATT is simply horrible, and the plan may be a bit pricey, but you can't go wrong with the phone.

    I'm waiting for the Blackberry Thunder. Should be awesome, and works with Verizon.

    me either and the Iphone costs to much and i don't mean the initial price, it's the only phone where you have to pay for all that extra stuff on top of your normal plan. i like my BB curve just fine.

    The pearl is fantastic, good choice. And be blessed, those of you who have not had a problem with ATT. Otherwise you would have to call their completely useless customer service.

    I have a Samsung Sync. My first flip phone and it works great. Was pretty cheap a year ago when I got it. My wife has a Motorola Krazr (spelling?) and she likes it.

    I don't like to go out and spend a lot on a phone, just because a lot of people I know have ended up regretting that decision. Try poking around the net for reviews and stuff of the like... try cnet.com or other places like that.

    Can't really recommend a phone cause I stay close to the LG phones but I can recommend the Howard forums. http://www.howardforums.com/
    They're very useful for information, research and stuff.

    I would go with Verizon and get an LG Voyager. Touch screen and flips open with a full QWERTY keyboard to make texting easier.

    As much as I used to "hate on" LG phones for being unheard of (at least 3 years ago) the one I've had for the last 2 years has worked like a champ. Definately a brand that I'd continue to buy.

    It's not my choice as it's a works phone.
    So I get work related emails on it even when I'm off work. Which is fun.
