First, you'll have to decide what kind of phone you want. Do you need a smart phone like a palm or blackberry? Verizon has some phones with fold out keyboards, so if you text a lot you might want to look at one of those. They also have some touch screen phones. Pretty much every phone comes with a camera, but do you need one with higher quality or a flash? Many phones come with a built in music player. Whats important to you?

I have an LG EnV2, and it has been great. Good battery, good reception, easy texting, etc... Its a hair bigger than my old Razor, but its trememdously better!

Unless you want a smart phone, you should check it out.

I used to work for verizon and motorolla phones seemed to have the least problems. I have been using motorolla phones for over a decade, great phones i.m.h.o

Not on verison anymore however i traded my Iphone to a blackberry. Just could not get the hang of the i phone. I had an old sanyo that was rubber cased, not many bells and whistles but rugged. I dropped it 40 ft still worked great. If you want rugged, there are some mil spec phones out.

I have a Blackberry Storm, Blackberry Curve and a LG Voyager currently, all 3 great phones.

Would reccomend the Curve to anyone that needs a data plan, the storm is great and all, but overall I like the curve a bit better.

I have a LG 8350 and love it. I tried the env2, and I couldn't stand it - hated that phone.

I have been a motorolla fan for years. they always seem to be the most durable. all but my current one (moto W755) have had great reception. I only buy a new phone when mine breaks so I usually get 3 or so years out of a Motorolla and thats sitting in my pocket all day every day.

I do wish I would have got the Dare instead of the Voyager.

I bought a blackberry for my Sprint service, it is the best I have ever had by far. I am kinda known for being tough on my stuff, if I dont like it I say so . It takes GREAT video and pictures, the online browser is very good for a cell phone. I play radio on it all the time. It was great this season while shed hunting. Battery life seems above average.

That said, I had to get a 2nd one because the first one seemed to lock up alot. Sprints cust. service is total junk, I had to argue to get them to send another one. Eventually they sent my old one back to me ( I had to buy the 2nd one at a discount) .

So if anyone needs a new blackberry for sprint let me know, I was going to put it on e...bay soon. They did some software upgrade on the first one it seems fine now.

I had the LG Voyager for about a year and thought it was the best phone I've had. Then the other day I went and upgraded to a Blackberry Curve and it blows the Voyager out of the water.

If you can fit the data plan into the budget I would recommend checking out the Blackberry Curve.

I was on the River last night listening to a Radio station out of Philly, checking out the live radar, and reading my email all at the same time.

Well naturally I am sure that some people have good experiences, but I can promise you overall their reputation is just that, they are bad.

If you like pay in advance I can tell you tracphone has been awesome. I have a 20 dollar phone and it works fine. I mostly use it around Minneapolis. Works well out on mille lacs to.

Pay about 30 to 100 bucks for 1 year of service and some minutes to get started. No bills or contracts.

I love mine too. I especially like having the cable to plug into the computer for data transferring and charging. Very rarely use the wall charger.

i had the original chocolate for the past 1-1/2 years thru verizon. Well, the charger port went bad on it, battery died and i was unable to recharge it, i called them to see what my options were and to activate my old phone until i could figure out what to do, apparantly my year and a half phone was under warranty and i had a replacement refurbished chocolate at my door the next day NO CHARGE. i dont pay for any warranty coverage or extra phone insurance, so i think this is pretty sweet. i took it to a verizon dealer and got my contacts and downloads transferred for FREE and now im set. very very happy.

    • I like the slush. If you don't, swipe the chips on one side of the hole with your foot before you break threw and let it run for second or two.  This will flush it out.  Having some slush in a hole in shallow water on a sunny day is sometimes a benefit.  If fish are spooky on a sunny day fishing in the open put some slush in the hole.  You might be surprised.

    • 32 HERE IN THE boat on Hidden Bay, some sunshine but it looks a lot warmer then it is. Back at the cabin after running a few errands in town. Had to go down to the Lake Iwanttobethere Bank where I slipped into Mr. Fergenson office, the bank president to approve some town transactions. I do this from time to time but never mention it but now that you know I am working in the background helping the town out I thought I would share a little of what is being done around here to keep looking good. Today I approved a pink paint job on the fish cleaning station down by the access and also one of the docks is in need of replanking so that to will get done before fishing season starts. A check was sent out to the street cleaning company and the flag on the pole in the center of town will be replaced.   A donation was made to the Ladies Auxiliary to pay for their rental and we talked about the request to resod the softball field in time for the church league season. The big check was for ten thousand walleye fingerlings to be hauled into the lake under the cover of darkness to keep them walleye guys happy. Another donation to the volunteer fire dept. And my favorite thing Mrs. Gleason to her surprise will find out that she won a contest at the bank which just happens to be enough to pay off her mortgage. Money was donated to the Lodge to pay for six membership and they will be drawn for in a contest that Gus will come up with, his job now as the manager.   A couple of new bike racks for around town, and a fresh coat of paint on the two parking spaces and a good cleaning of the meter where DOC Burriem still ties his car to when he is in town. An envelope with a couple of dollars to the Smith kid to keep helping out Ma and Pa after school with sweeping their sidewalk. An order confirming Diggers flowers for all the town’s planters and a new planter out on the road leading the way to Lake Iwanttobethere and maybe touching up the sign. Next month I will have to look at the grass contract and there was talk that the boat landing needs to be dug out some. A few fire rings may have to be ordered for the park. I enjoy being the little birdy listening to what we need done around the town as I sit behind the bar wiping out mugs with my towel. Have been doing this for a long time and I enjoy spending bucks. Makes me happy to put a smile on someone’s face. Now it is not all me the town does bring in money I just help Mr. Fergenson out when the town is a little short or I see where I can help the town out.   I have always backed the Lodge as a place where guys can go and put their feet up, not a place where people go to get money for stuff. My me donating we keep the fishing contests going. I do donate a lot to the school for things because I want our kids to enjoy being kids not having to learn how to be salesmen in the second grade trying to earn money for field trips. Of course there I have a price tag and that is they get at least one ice fishing trip and one summer trip. If they don’t have rods Masterbaiters seems to find a check for them. Now this is not a total secret, of course Mr. Fergenson knows about me and the town along with Elmer and Big Earl and Vicki at the bait shop, they also help donate or at they get the town stuff at cost. There are a lot of people out there who love to donate and a kid’s smile is all they want in return. I find that smile means a lot to me these days. My 765 birthday today, everyone now is kind of special and you might have figured it out, my birthday is the day I go see Mr. Fergenson here at Lake Iwanttobethere
