I am wondering if anyone can help with my phone question, phone companies or service providers are always going to have their perspectives, but I am chiming in to the bee as I am sure I will get some great opinions and perhaps some help!
I currently have a Blackberry, work allows me to use it for enough personal use that doesn’t require I have a 2nd phone for personal use, I am very lucky and haven’t really had a phonebill in recent years! I will be on leave from work soon and before leaving want to purchase a personal phone and leave time for transitioning people to the new phone (gosh knows over time there are some I will forget to give the new number too!)
The biggies for the phone for me are email, learning to use skype or facetime for long distance family, data usage (facebook a little, twitter too!), my calendar, and of course bbm/whatsapp (texting!). Getting reception in certain places is another thing, but I know that’s a provider thing, not a device thing necessarily!
My device options:
I love the keypad of a Blackberry, I think that’s the biggest thing that I keep hanging on to purchasing a Blackberry. BBM is something I love, emails are straightforward. Hate the camera, hate the poor web browsing capabilities.
iPhone, I still don’t think I am the type of person to really utliize all it can offer -apps especially. Facetime for family far away I would love to learn about, I do make all of my music purchases and have an ipod I don’t really use -but would be cool to store my musc on it!! I love the camera capabilities I see others have compared to the Blackberry, and of course the iPhone commercials showing the camera make me pretty envious too!
Samsung Galaxy Note. This phone I really don’t know a lot about, but I LOVE it’s size and love the look of it, I do need to learn more about this one -can I skype on this? Does anyone have it?
For those of you then went from a blackberry, to a touch screen keyboard…..how did you adjust? I have a feeling I will really miss the keyboard, but is that enough to stay with the crackberry!
ANY help or suggestions are so welcome…….thank-you for taking the time to read this, and respond!!
