So AT&T Bees (if you are w/another company please don’t tell me to switch b/c it’s not an option) I’m due for an upgrade. I currently have the old blackberry 8310. I’m wondering what a good AT&T phone is? I wanted the bb torch but wasn’t sure if I should try an android and if so which one? I do really like having a full keyboard vs no keyboard and only touchscreen, but if one is much better I’d be willing to try it out! Help!

I’m not sure which Droid phones AT&T has but the HTC technology is by far and away the best.
My FI had a Droid incredible with Verizon and the phone is very cool. I’m waiting for the new Droid thunderbolt to come out and then I will switch from AT&T to Verizon.
BUT, if you are using your phone for more business related items (i.e. lots of e-mail writing) the blackberry might be *slightly* better for that, although much less fun.

Neither of us is on AT&T, but my husband has an expensive blackberry and I have a cheap android – and he is constantly jealous of my phone. We find that the android market has a much better selection of useful apps, and can’t really figure out why anyone would want a blackberry……. he’ll be switching soon. 🙂
ETA: Look for an android with a slide out keyboard. I didn’t think I would love mine, but I totally do!

@daydreamwanderer- When I got my bb there were no androids so it was a good phone at the time for email/internet etc but now that androids are out I see how awesome they are and I’m craving one! lol I just keep hearing good things about Verizon droids so I needed input on some good AT&T droids…hopefully there are some that aren’t too expensive!

@Kitzy- I’m not anti-iphone lol but I have a itouch and I don’t exactly love it enough for a phone I think but if you have one please tell me what you like & dislike about it. I’ll adjust my poll for iphone votes!

AT&T has the HTC Inspire 4G. That might be good. Just look for a Droid phone by HTC. They had fantastic touch screen phone technology before the iPhone arrived.

@kitzy: I thnk her problem with iphones are their lack of tactile keyboard.
I think a lot of the Android phones are superb, but because AT&T has had exclusive rights to the iPhone for so long they didn’t develop any top of the line Android phones because that would compete with their iphone market which has been a major deal for them for the last few years. Now that other carriers are able to carry iphones, its likely that the quality of AT&Ts Android phones will go up, but thusfar Verizon and other carriers have outstripped AT&T in the Android market.
Sorry if that’s that’s not especially helpful.

@Soon2beeMrsM: Yep, that’s MrDDW’s deal too. He bought his BB just before androids really made it in the market, and now he’s stuck with it!

AT&T just released a new Android phone yesterday, the Motorola Atrix 4G. I wish I could get one! It’s got a dual-core processor! I use a Samsung Captivate, which was their other Android option before yesterday.

I love my iPhone! I was super close to getting an android but the sales rep informed me that they can get viruses like a computer because anyone can just dream up and app and put it out there…whereas apple tests all of theirs. Now, I’m not really sure if that true…but I bought it! 🙂

DH has an HTC and LOVES it. Its a really cool phone…. he has Sprint though. Not sure if AT&T carries them.

I’ve been a diehard iPhone user since the first generation was launched so that obviously gets my vote. I love that I have everything that I could possibly need in one handy devise. There’s an app for just about everything and the developers really care about the product they’re selling (I should know, I’m marrying one).
I had a blackberry years ago and I didn’t love it. I’ve never had an android but I have friends that do and they seem to like them. In my opinion, the iPhone is the best phone on the market so I’ve never seen a reason to switch.

I personally have an iPhone and love it. But you should go into a store and play around with some of them. Also, it depends on where you live. In DC, we don’t have a huge dropped call problem, but in NYC, it was terrible for me.
