I've got AT&T using a crappy Nokia 6030. The only good thing about the Nokia is I've dropped it about 50 times and it still works. I also used to have Verizon using an LG enV, but got rid of Verizon when I moved back up to Alaska.

I've got an enV with Verizon. The thing is solid as a rock. I've dropped it down a flight of stairs onto a tile floor about three times, and its barely got any marks on it.

I should add that I've dropped my iPhone countless times, I beat the crap out of my stuff and it's still perfect.
6 feet onto concrete... picked it up and kept talking.

Sprint, Motorola Q. No problems, except battery life. Love how it integrates with MS. Outlook and hotmail.

Service: Cingular/AT&T (joined when they were Cingular; in fact, my phone still has Cingular on the phone and the only AT&T anything on my phone is the text on the homepage and MobiTV's AT&T motif instead of the Cingular motif originally)

Phone: Samsung SGH-A707 aka the SYNC

Rating of Service: I can only sing praises!
Rating of Phone: Love it, although there's a few features that tick me off but I accepted the faults

Had T-Mobile before that. My first phone was one of those old-school ones with green-n-black screen which was pretty cool. Then my favorite, my first colored-screen phone with the coolest games on it! It was a candy bar design, as was the first one, so my phone would randomly call people on speed dial when I'm walking. Then I got the Sharp TM-150, which was my first camera phone, but it was bulky, ugly, and no games. The SYNC doesn't come with free games (just demos, like any other phone), but I bought some cool stuff like billiards, bowling, and MobiTV (even Alex likes it since they recently added Disney Channel so he can watch his Disney Playhouse shows; they also have Discovery for those over the age of 2) and it would be a sad day when I'll have to part with this thing.

Oh, and LONG LIVE AIRPLANE MODE!!! :mrgreen:

Make it where you can still use the features of your phone and not have to turn it off but you cant send or recieve anything. ;) Hope that helps.

Sounds entertaining, although not necessarily for the people on your contact list. :lol:

I have nothing at the moment

Virgin Mobile UK with a Nokia 6111! Awesome mix.

In Australia I had a Vodafone with my Nokia 6111 which was fine.

Basically, turns off the antenna. You can use your programs and games, but you can't send and receive signals.

I had somewhat of a bad experience with Verizon. Purchased the enV with them just before I moved back up to Alaska. Turns out, even though where I live in Alaska is in their extended network, they were charging me roaming charges (unlike my phone on AT&T, who, since I'm in their service area, I'm covered without roaming). So, I tried to cancel my contract, and took them about four phone calls to me to figure out I wasn't paying my bill because I had told them to cancel it three previous times. Finally got it sorted out and only had to pay a cancellation fee, so I guess it wasn't all bad.

So now I have an enV that is used for absolutely nothing. Maybe I can use it eventually when I can finally toss the Nokia out. My contract with AT&T/Cingular is up in October, and I don't want to switch to a local company here (or even AT&T up here in Alaska) because every cell carrier up here rips you off. That's why I've stuck with my lower 48 phone number and everything. It's amazing what these carriers get away with sometimes.
