What Is The Best Cell Phone .... Or Cell Phone Deal .... For YOU

In all honesty this is not an easy question to answer.


Simply because there is no easy answer. What may be best for "me" ..... may not be best for "you".

In reality, the best cellular phone is simply any phone that has features that match your needs. Alot of phones have fancy features that you may not use. Some phones are geared towards media, text, email, browsing, etc... The main feature you should truly focus on is being able to make and recieve a phone call. Period. After that everything else is icing on the cake. I suggest before making a purchase for a cellular phone, research the forums and see what people like and don't like, before you purchase.

In general you can start with these guidelines to narrow things down a bit......

If you want a real good phone with good value for the money -- Sony Ericsson.
If you want a good phone with good signal reception -- Motorola
If you want a good PDA type phone -- HP / Palm
If you can afford it and frequently change phones -- Nokia

Now to be a bit more specific ......

The best phones out there are the ones that use the famous Symbian OS. Which is an open mobile operating system. Depending on your needs and budget, you can find a cell phone that is suitable.

For the general consumer .....

A highly recommended cell phone for personal use is the Nokia 6120 (newer version coming soon 6121). It's a well-priced and feature-packed Symbian phone. You'll also find some Samsung's to be cute gadgets. Moreover, a cell phone with no A2DP profile means nothing to me. Probably won't to you either. The Sony-Ericsson is a must if you are planning on buying the Abacus Bluetooth Watch or the Sony-Ericsson MBW-100 (with Caller ID) as no support is yet available for Symbian phones.

For the business consumer ......

Again, any Symbian phone such as the Nokia Series 60 comes highly recommended. Blackberry is also a winner. Always has been and probably always will be. Palm OS based phones like the Treo's are also a good choice for business users. As far as the new Apple iPhones .... jury is still out on issues with provider plans and purchase costs being in the news. I personally would wait for the fallout to settle and the phone to mature a bit before willy nilly recommended an iPhone.

The ultimate solution for a business cellular geek or general cell phone afficianado is a Nokia Symbian phone + Nokia Internet Tablet N800 (or the newer N810) ..... both connected via Bluetooth.

Now ..... before you run right out to your nearest mall kiosk to hunt down the phone that's caught your eye .... sit down. Here's a tip that will save you time .... AND money.
