I finally trashed my env2 after suffering through a 20 month contract with it. The phone wasn't terrible, but it found a way to irritate me every few months by losing one of its features. The outside button panel only partially worked after a while.

Old phone aside, I now have a Motorola Droid and it's beautiful so far. I love the desktop feature and adding/removing apps for easier access. I'm a fan of the notifications system too. I'm actually typing this out on the attached sliding keyboard, which is taking a little getting used to. I'm now paying 30$ more a month, but I can already say its worth it.

What do you guys use?

I'm using a BlackBerry Flip, but I don't have any data plans, not even texting, so the vast majority of its features are lost to me. From what I've seen any phones running the Android OS are friggin' sexy, too bad they require a data package..

Some old dumbphone. I want to get a Palm, but I'm afraid they'll be out of business by the time I have a chance to get one.

The sword and the faith

Env3. Considering I had to use my sisters pink Razr before for about two years, I'm quite happy. :P

I got the LG Rumor from US Cellular. It was a great phone at the start, but over time it starts to break. First thing to go was the back button while texting, I would hit backspace once and the entire message disappears. Then my phone started turning off randomly. I figured out how to circumvent these problems. If you hold "Right" while backspacing it wont delete the entire thing, and if you bump the phone (even if you open it too rough for the sliding keyboard) it turns off, so i stopped doing the latter and started doing the former. My sister has the same phone and uses it more heavily, her charge inlet eventually broke so she got what is known as the "Rumor 2" but is actually named something else. She loves it and I'm stuck with my phone for awhile. No idea what its name is.

"If a topic that clearly interest noone needs to be closed to underline the "we don't want this here" message, is up to debate."

I don't have a phone :(

Its my fault though. I just haven't put in the money or time to get one...

I'm only here because they patched SC1 and made it free.

Nokia N75. Unlike all you dumbasses out there, I don't drop/spill water on/throw/lose/smash/eat/piss on/detonate bombs on/use as a boomerang/flush down the toilet/yell at/ or otherwise destroy my phone, so it works perfectly like it did years ago, excluding a shorter battery life, but that's to be expected.

I got a BlackBerry 8320, With Rogers. It got BB messenger which is pretty useful because around 5% of the student at my school has BBs, do its this much people I can chat freely to, but I got infinite text message so I don't really care about it. I also can go on sen and type messages almost as well as when i'm on my computer. Only downside is the trackball used as a mice, it works fine but is reputed to fuck up, like computer mices, dirt and dust gets under it and it fucks.

I also am 6'4" tall, so I dropped it from around 4 to 5' high on concrete a good 50 times, had it under hard rain and it never failed me... This Smartphone is beastie.

Also I am 17 years old, my dad pays the friggin 80$ bill because I would have the most cheapest phone, this is just excessive.

Relatively ancient and inactive

Using an LG Vu. Pretty bad phone came at a time where I wanted anything with a touch screen. Slow, bad sound quality, yada yada. But it hasn't broken at all, and it works. Hoping to get something even shinier soon. :D

EDIT: Just looked around, and Windows Phone 7 looks hot. I really like the Zune HD's interface (having both a zune HD and an iPod Touch, I can justifiably compare them) and it's awesome. If they successfully implement it in a phone and back it with a proper app base... Well, I'll wait half a year for that.

tbf you didn't say that you dig the nostalgia. The way you worded it, it sounded like a complaint or condescending. And in that case you deserved a sarcastic response. :P Anyways, sounds like a miscommunication so there's not really a point to get worked up about it.
