Default What's your phone?

I guess just like the title says, what are you rolling for a phone? Who is your provider? What is your opinion on it? What is your next phone if you plan to upgrade? Any phone that you're excited for?

Myself, I'm currently using an HTC Desire Z on Bell. It's a pretty decent phone, however, I would prefer a stock Android experience I think.

I'm excited to see the release of the Galaxy S II here soon. I believe that's going to be my next upgrade. That is, unless I like the look of the next Nexus phone.

LG Optimus One P500

Who is your provider?

Telus is alright, but the phone is terrible. Dust gets into the screen and randomly shuts down, but the hardware is decent enough to not be laggy.

Next phone??? I don't know, but I do know is that I'll be buying from HTC next time.

Motorola Milestone. Got it on launch day Feb 2010. Getting a little slow after a year and a half but there is really no reason to upgrade it at this point. Android OS and a real keyboard are selling points for me. Dont care for the touchscreen kb.

Provider is Telus. Been good thus far.

Using the iPhone 4 with bell and really like it.

I am not married to Apple so I will take a look at Android phones again this fall. My corp plan gives me an upgrade each year so I might get the latest iPhone or an Android, and sell my old phone or give it to the wife (she has the Galaxy and likes the iPhone better).

I've had my Samsung Galaxy S since on Bell last August and rather enjoy it for the most part. It has a quirk right now though its either to do with a certain version of firmware that is out or my quazi back up app

Current Phone: Palm Pre
Provider: Bell

I like the phone, its a bit old and a bit slow now but I do like WebOS and could never consider moving to android or iOS from it.

As for Bell. I think this may be because I'm on their old network still but for the most part it is quite slow these days and customer service has been terrible when I've had to resort to it.

Next Phone: HP Pre3 most likely. WebOS and portrait keyboard on a bigger screen, cant wait.

HTC Dream (G1, US version unlocked) on Rogers. I love the physical keyboard and touchscreen combo. Hardware is pretty dated though sadly, gets extremely slow at times.

Google Nexus One, one of the last purchased from the Google web store before it was shut down. Rooted and running Cyanogen 7 on the Fido network. (I'm moving to East York in a month if any Torontonians suggest a better network ie. Virgin, Wind etc, etc)

I also have an unlocked Blackberry Bold 9000 with custom housing that is currently being borrowed by a friend who forgot he had his curve in his pocket when he went for a swim.

I'm most looking forward to who is making the next Nexus phone (rumoured to be codenamed Prime). I still prefer my Nexus One over the Nexus S mainly because my trackball acts a notification light for me.

I hope RIM pulls through in the next few months and the new Bold Touch 9900 goes off with a hit, I'd be interested in trying it out.

Blackberry 8300. IMO, one of the best, most durable phones made in the last decade. I've had mine for a bit over 4 years, it has chunks taken out of it and rattles like a porn star's vibrator but it still works like a charm and retains a battery life of 3 DAYS.
