phone recommendations?

Once again I am looking for a new phone to replace my aging Treo 600. About six months ago I took my phone apart and performed a minor surgery on it to get rid of the buzzing….and now it is back. I have finally had it and am in need of a good phone solution.

  1. The keyboard/keypad is most important to me as I type a lot of email/blog posts from my phone while in transit to work (on the train…not driving) and while on vacation/when I am without my iBook. I do not want to press one key three times before getting the letter I want…so I need a good keyboard layout.
  2. I need the abilty to sync my mobile device to my mac via iSync.
  3. I would like a phone with good voice clarity as I use my cell phone to contact clients when I am away from my home office
  4. For the past eight years, I have been using an ATT plan and while it is not as good as some of the new plans, I will not complain. However, all my friends who have Cingular…hate it. So…I am also up to switching to a new serivce provider. (Suggestions would be greatly appreciated)

I have really liked my Treo 600 for the past years, but it is clear it is time for an upgrade. Hitting the side of my phone as hard as I can to stop the buzzing is getting old. I am really interested in the Sony Ericsson 910a but have never met anyone who has had it…and would like to at least hear about some experiences with it before I pay a lot of money for it. I like the Treo fmaily of phones….so should I wait until they announce the two expected new versions of this phone later this year? Help!

    that keyboard does not look solid enough to support the phone. it looks like typing with the keyboard on anything but a table will be… clumsy… but i’ve never seen one in person… 😀

    I know a few people who swear by their blackberries. This might be ideal for the amount of email dependency you have. Not sure if there is a hack for iSync or not. The 8700 series is pretty sweet. Also, have you looked at that new Motorola Q? Sorry, it’s too early for hyperlinks.

    I really like the Blackberry 8700, but isync support looks to be spotty. (PocketMac offers free sync software). I just am having a hard time getting past the service plan price. For data alone, I would be paying more money than I am currently for voice and data. Perhaps this is the price to pay. 😉 I will finally go check one out in the next week. As for the Motorola Q, the phone itself looks great, but I do not want anything to do with ^[Windows]. (ahh Perl….I think that is correct, but it has been awhile) 😉
