    I'm not big into the bells and whistles. We stopped at a Verizon store a few weeks ago and the phones seemed to be more than enough for our needs.

    We don't text-message, download music or videos, and rarely send pictures.

    I don't need to pick up e-mail on my phone. No need to jump on the internet, either. I do enough of that at home.

    In general, we mostly use the phones to make calls. Rarely even receive them---I give almost everyone just my land line number, except for my kids and a few other people.

    Old futs....

    Thanks for the input. I think the next phone will be from Verizon.

    I've never had the coverage problems with T-Mobile that others describe. For me, T-Mobile works fine and comes in at the right price. That's why I've stayed with them for the past three or four years after going through hell with Nextel, getting screwed by Sprint and not wanting to pay the premium for Verizon.
    For some reason everywhere I've lived from Waialae Nui Valley, 18th avenue, Paani street, deep in side Manoa valley next to the chinese cemetary, even just outside Manoa valley on Vancouver street I've never had good cell service (even to some point Verizon), but overall I've been a loyal Verizon/GTE Mobilnet customer since the mid 80's and they provide me with quality service and no hassles among that...great coverage on all islands. At one point I had three accounts with nine active cell phones. Now I'm down to four as my two older boys took over their cell phones, transferring their names over plus dropping three Oahu cell numbers when we made the transistion over to the Big Island.

    yeah, let's get back to the topic at hand!

    Golly, that phone watch is fuggah-ugly! or should I have inserted instead? Gaaaaag. Seriously, ever since the invention of the cell phone, I stopped wearing watches. And my wrists are so much happier as a result.

    Otherwise, I agree with PJ. Been w/ TMobile since Voicestream days. Never had a battle with customer service that didn't end in my favor. Have all sorts of bells and whistles on my plan and I am sure that I pay a big % less than the competitors.

    Never had a problem with coverage anywhere on O'ahu. My understanding is that throughout the islands, cingular has the best coverage.

    I am looking to dump T-Mobile for just the reasons you cited above. So you'd recommend Verizon?

    Too bad but to me the most important part of a cell phone is coverage which T-mobile and Cingular has problems with everywhere I've lived on Oahu and Hawaii. I'm sure they'll make a phone compatible with Verizon's system because Motorola's Razr has a GSM version out.

    Finally, consumer reality catches up with the Dick Tracy two-way wristwatch.
    Didn't his watch also have TV?

    Sorry bruddah, but this is a GSM phone, which means its compatible with Tmobile or Cingular. (another reason why I'm sticking with tmobile).

    Oh, and from research online, it looks like it'll cost $500.

    Just in time for my two year contract expiration!!! I hope Verizon picks up on this model. Now this is the kind of phone I can handle even if it only can make/receive calls. Albeit I've been using the camera function on my Razr lately to show my hard working wife her son's latest mischief while we're out and about and she's stressing with work.

    Hopefully that can have custom ringtones, then I'll put in the Power Ranger's Communicator sound (other 90's kids know what I'm talking about).

    Oh, but can it play snake?

    Cell Phone Watch should be on market in time for the holidays!



    SO this is the latest from mobile crunch friends! I've been waiting for a cell phone watch since ...forever.

    This m300 GSM phone will have bluetooth capabilities, a 99-count phone book, 70 hours of standby, and is expected to be released December 1st.
