Jordon went out and bought me a Samsung Galaxy 550 today for an early anniversary gift. I have had my Samsung Link/Freeform for over a year and I really liked it but it’s time to upgrade to a HSPA phone to take advantage of SaskTel’s network. After looking around, I wanted to stay with Virgin Mobile. They have been great to deal with and they are pretty inexpensive for what I need. Plus their technical support is absolutely amazing to deal with.
While Jordon is in love with his Blackberrry Curve, he decided to get me an Android phone. While BBM would be fun, it’s not that much more useful than texting for me. What I am excited about having is my email, synchronized calendar, address book, Twitter, WordPress, Flickr, and Foursquare all on my phone. It’s not the fastest smartphone out there and isn’t an iPhone but it’s good enough for me. I can’t wait to play with it for a while.
While I am talking about Virgin Mobile, Visions Electronics is giving away free Virgin phones with no contracts. You can cancel a month into it if you want. They have the LG Rumor 2, the Samsung Gravity 3, and some others.
Oh yeah, you can find me on Foursquare at foursquare.com/wendycooper
