everything my technolust heart desires
I have a question for my phone geek friends. My current workhorse phone is a well-loved and well-worn Nokia 6800.
It is a market anomaly: it is one of the few phones available that has a QWERTY keyboard. I have loved it because it has suited my needs well over the years. My phone tends to be used more for text messaging than phone calls, so I value ease of text input over most of the flashy functions that other people obsess over.
It does not have Bluetooth, though, and I'm really wanting a wireless headset. Adam's call last night to test out his new Jawbone headset impressed both of us greatly. I wantses one of those.
- We are T-Mobile customers, and do not wish to change. We have a plan that suits us well and is surprisingly inexpensive as well. I actually don't even know if we're still under contract. We don't see a reason to shift services, so whatever I purchase needs to work with T-Mobile.
- I think the iPhone is seriously sexy, and I want one, but I'd have to unlock it and it's $pendy.
- There is a Nokia 6800/6822, which is the successor to my current phone. It is cheaper than the iPhone but gets so-so reviews. It is hard to tell how much of those reviews penalized the phone due to its lacking features that I just don't care about and would rarely use, like a camera or mp3 player.
I'm wondering if it's really worth saving up for the iPhone and the resultant unlock gambles, or if I should go with the cheaper, sure-thing option that doesn't get me everything my technolust heart desires.
