As I’ve shared over the last week–read No New Phone for Me–I’ve been on a phone quest, trying to find 4 phones combined with the right service plan and provider that won’t break my budget. After quite a bit of deliberation–too much, my wife observed–I finally made my decision. Since I’ve made you suffer through it with me, I thought I’d share what was decided.
To recap, here’s what I was looking for in a phone:
- 4 smartphones with Gmail, MS Exchange compatibility, Twitter and Facebook, a nice camera with unlimited texting/images/Internet.
- Under $220 per month.
- 2 year contract
- 1500 minutes of talk time
- 1500 minute Family Plan
- 4 Smartphones that include 3G, Edge, GSM, WiFi, Bluetooth connectivity; 7.9cm HVGA touch screen with virtual keyboard, slide-out physical QWERTY keyboard, 5megapixel camera with flash, autofocus, photoeditor, and geotagging; 6 hours of talk time, 13.5 days of standby, microSD expansion to 32 GB storage, and access to the following:
Facebook, Twitter, Picasa, YouTube, video streaming, GoogleMaps, Gmail, Google Search, RSS news widgets, MS Exchange and Quickoffice.
- Under $220 per month
