Ok, so I’m thinking about getting a new phone. I’m a bit limited on options because I have service with Sprint. Looking through all the options, though, I’m particularly intrigued by a couple phones. The phone that keeps rising to the top, however, is the Motorola Q. So, I thought I would throw that out there and see if any of you have it or have used it. What do you think? I’d love to hear your thoughts.

    I had a Treo 650 and I liked it, but I didn’t love it. It’s too bulky for me. I want a phone that’s a bit trimmer.

    We do need to call each other more often, though. πŸ™‚

  2. Looks a lot like my Blackberry Pearl. Which I love!! Joe and I got new phones for Christmas. I had the Razor, and he the Pearl. But he didn’t like it. So I inherited it. lol
    Pretty quick on the net, great pictures. And fast for texting which I do alot with my kids. But no video. That’s the only thing I don’t like about it. But notes, lists, calendars, and syncing it with the computer, very cool.
    I would think it would be the perfect tool for you. Sermon notes on the go, etc.

    I love the Curve, and that would be my first option, but the salesperson told me that it would cost me an extra $30 a month for the “Blackberry package”, whatever that means. That’s on top of any data package that I’ve already purchased. That seems a bit too rich for my blood. I’m already spending way more than I need to on a cell package and I don’t want to add another $30 per month.

  4. Micah,

    My wife has the Curve and it is NOT intuitive at all – Sorry Kevin.

    I upgraded from my Treo 650 to a Centro from Palm and love it for several reasons:

    1. I got to sync it with all my Treo stuff and it uploaded everything – programs included – to my Centro. Even my color preferences. Everything. Not losing stuff and quickly making the transfer is AWESOME.

    2. It is much smaller in every dimension – Ht. x Wdth. x Dpth. Which is great.

    3. It is better than the Treo in it’s functionability. It has more bells and whistles and is actually easier to use in the phone area.

    4. It is Palm logic, which is intuitive, especially if you’ve already had a Palm.

    The next question is, “Why are you with Sprint!?” πŸ™‚

    Let me guess, the church is with Sprint, and it’s their phone.

    That’s fascinating. You’re the first person I know of to have something bad to say about the Curve. Everyone I know that has one loves theirs. You and Stetzer should mix it up sometime. I think he’s in love with his. πŸ˜‰

  6. That says quite a bit about Stetzer, though, doesn’t it? I mean, if it weren’t for us, he wouldn’t even blog, right?

    He’s as tech savvy as a kitten, right?

    Ok, then.

    Take it from a fellow tech lover, the Centro is better.

    Or take it from my wife, who would like mine if I would trade.

  7. Micah,

    I have used the Motorola Q for about 18 months now. Occassionally, it will freeze up, especially if you are using a lot of memory for websites and email. But after all, it does employ Windows technology, so you would have to expect it to freeze occassionally. πŸ™‚

    Other than this one problem, I’ve been very happy with my phone. I, like others, would have gone Blackberry, but at the time they weren’t making phones with cameras, and I needed a camera phone for my job. I have great pics of E. Asia on my phone.
