New Phone

I need a new phone in the worst way. My current HTC Pure is HORRIBLE -- it locked up every time I get a text, and I use it for texting 99% of the time. These are the phones that have been recommended to me -- I'd really prefer a smartphone with a touch screen and a physical keyboard, although right now I'm desperate enough I'd even try an iPhone. Any recommendations?

  • Apple iPhone 4 (16 GB)
  • LG Ally
  • Samsung Captivate
  • Apple iPhone 3G S (8 GB)
  • HTC Aria
  • BlackBerry Torch 9800 (StephanieBCl is offering bribes if I get a BlackBerry! LOL)
  • HTC Evo Shift
  • HTC Evo Tilt

I'd aim a bit higher than most of those. The two phones with physical keyboards I've looked at (we're about to buy) are the Motorola Droid 2 Global (the Droid 2 also has one, but the Global's the better phone) and the Sprint Evo Shift 4G (not the plain Evo, which lacks a physical keyboard). The Droid is noticeably less expensive (especially if you buy through Wirefly or even Dell), but the Evo is a very nice phone indeed.

(We're likely to buy the Droid X unless the HTC Droid Thunderbolt is released soon. Physical keyboard isn't a dealbreaker for us; both M and I like to read ebooks on the phone, and the big screen is a selling point for the X. Plus, Verizon has the unlimited data plan still in place, which we'd have to stay with AT&T and be grandfathered to keep, otherwise. Either way, it's a big upgrade from the Q9H, which is in the usericon, that we now have.)

Good luck!

Thanks. I was looking at the Evo Shift... elbanditorojo has an Evo he really likes, but I hate virtual keyboards, so I thought that might make a good compromise. If lildomino is willing to let me use her re-up to get a discount I can get a better phone... if I have to pay full price I might have to settle for something less.
