I need a new cell phone...suggestions??

I'm not currently in a contract, but I've been with AT&T since..'97?
..if that matters. Kind of a dingaling where gadgets are concerned.
I don't want to spend $100s, though.
Any suggestions?

  • What do you need it in apps, basic cell service? texting? What? Cause if you don't really need a smartphone with all the bells and whistles I sa just go with a burner from wall-world and buy the cards for it.

  • Not the galaxy it freezes up. My aunt and friend has the same problem and we all have different carriers. I can't wait until my contract is up. I'm not sure what's good out there just wanted to say don't get the galaxy lol

  • If you've had your phone for three years you should be able to get whatever you want pretty cheap if you are willing to enter a contract. I am a motorola droid user. I've had one version or another for the last four years and have been very happy. The screen is nice and big. I love that!

  • texting, calls..
    I need it for internet, too. Not so much apps. I've used my 3yo motorola for camera, too,

  • I have att &t and just today got the i phone 4 for $10, because I was a long term customer, I ran in there when my phone stopped working, but it ended up that the sevrvice was down nationwide, my phone was like a dinosaur anyway, and I upgraded to day, plus save 10 bucks a month on my bill!

  • I've an iPhone. I have used them since the original came out. I love it. However, FYI something that I found out the hard way.... the white iPhone 4 has an issue with the sensor. Because it's white it reflects somehow. It kept muting me, hanging up on me, even putting me on three way call. I hated it. I went back to the iPhone 3. I think I will try the iPhone 5 in June.
