Matthew had one of these fanpost/diary thingies about a year ago, right around the time I was looking at jumping into the smartphone market.
I ended up getting a T-mobile Shadow, which was great for viewing LL on the go, or finding a restaurant, and all those nice things that smartphones are supposed to do.
It worked in the UK, or at least I think it did, because someone fucking stole it when I was there. (Graham, if you know anything about this...)
Basically, I'm under contract (T-mobile), and I really need a phone. For the purposes of this discussion, let's assume that insurance actually gives me something for the loss of the old one, otherwise it'd be too expensive to do much of anything.
Basically, have any of the new phones (iPhone '3G', LG Voyager, whatever) blown people away? Any 3G phones on a GSM network that people love or hate?
Also, has anyone bought a phone abroad to use here? Shopping for phones in the UK was cool, because the phones were about 1-2 years ahead of what you can get here. Seems like it'd be cool to grab an unlocked Nokia e75/76, but then I wonder why I'd do that when there's simply no way to take advantage of it.
Any advice, recommendations, complaints, etc. would be really appreciated.
