PHONE WUT.
« on: August 29, 2011, 01:49:07 pm »

CRAP I call upon thee!

Getting a new phone. I need it to:

- Work right as a phone, make calls and not blow up

- Use Google Maps or similar, a bonus would be GPS so you could see where you are on the map.

- Browse internet to check Craigslist and use emails.

- Maybe have Skype so I can use that to call people instead of the carrier.

- Also, what's a good carrier?


I know nothing about smartphones and I'm going shopping for one in a couple of minutes. I'd like to keep it under 300 though, so something like iPhone is out, at its 800 dollar cost. What's just as good?

If you're trying to minimize cost I'd go with a low-grade Android smartphone with a contract. Verizon tends to have somewhat more expensive service plans, but has vastly superior service coverage in general. Ask around with people that have smartphones in your area and see what kind of coverage the different carriers get.

Any iPhone is shit and overpriced, so don't even go there. Don't get a 4G phone, they are not worth it at this point as all the kinks have yet to be worked out (they rip through the battery like nobody's business and 4G service is not very well-provided).

I ended up getting a phone that doubles as a playstation (Came with Crash Bandicoot apparently) from Verizon (we already had that plan) :P It had nice ratings (they had ehh things to say about the game features though, but that's fine), nice price, did what I wanted, android, tons of coverage, etc.

And now I am lost and confused in the world of apps. Guess I just gotta play around with it.

Find a GBA and SNES emulator ASAP. (Probably on whatever local jailbreak/unofficial app store/download place, w/e.)

Then hope to god that it has bluetooth.
