    Default Help me chose a new phone
    hey guys i cant decide between these three phones tell me what you think (and dont say "iphone 3g" because i want a phone that will boot up within 3 minutes and not have a chance that after an update it wont work, mabie iphone 3 will fix this)

    nokia n95 (8GB)
    -PROS
    GPS
    WIFI
    5 MEGAPIXEL CAMERA/FLASH
    8GB OF SPACE
    -CONS
    NOT QWERTY
    big in size


    NOKIA E71
    -PROS
    QWERTY
    WIFI
    GPS
    FLASH
    -CONS
    NOT THE BEST CAMERA
    MORE BISNESS ORIENTATED
    NO INTERNAL SPACE
    long in size


    HTC TOUCH DIAMOND
    -PROS
    TOUCH SCREEN
    FOUR GIGS OF SPACE
    GPS
    WIFI
    small size
    -CONS
    CRAP CAMERA
    TOUCH SCREEN QWERTY


    so its ether a qwerty, a good camera or a small size
    the size matters to me because i will be using it at school and phones " ARE NOT ALLOWED" during school time (or else your parents have to pick it up from the school) and i need it to be discreet

    Also qwerty is very important to me because i find it very hard to text on abc (i guess im kinda leaning 2words the diamond)

    i want opinions and/or user experience
    tell me what you like or dislike about the device or what would you buy

    thanks a ton!

    I don't understand this statement. Your phone takes more than 3 minutes to boot up? WHAT ON EARTH have you done with it? Also what makes it not work after an update? I am assuming you are referring to a jailbreak/unlock?

    That doesn't add up. I have eight pages of apps and my iPhone 3G boots up in about a minute and a half.

    You should try: http://www.modmyi.com/forums/general...ken-phone.html

    I have about 60 appstore apps and a messload of cydia apps and my phone boots less than a minute... It is most likely your JV status rather than the phone itself. 3 minutes is longer than my pc takes to boot!

    You want something discreet for school? That will prove to be difficult... Does your school allow PDA's? If so, then I'd say pretty much any HTC product would do. Though, most phones, well, look like phones. Ya know what I mean?

    Honestly, I'd say this: Mod your iPhone such that it appears to be only a PDA. It's what I do at work. If I hear that a sup. is coming, double tap to bossprefs, switch off edge and I'm left with a WiFi only device. Just a thought...
    And it will be like a taco inside a taco within a Taco Bell that's inside a KFC that's within a mall that's inside your dream! Springboard screwy after reboot? Here is the fix

    where do you work ?

    Hospital... Why? lol I should mention that it is on rare occasion that, outside of breaks, I get time to F around on my device to the point that I draw attention to myself.
