Now i need recommendations for a new cell phone i will def. be with ATT i looked at the iphone and its really nice but the lady told me i couldnt have insurance and that was a big let down for me, im a little hard and tend to break them pretty easy, so i always carry insurance. any recommendations for a new phone?

Wrong. Apple offers Apple Care on all of their products except for the iPhones. The only company that offers it is Best Buy. It is not an insurance and is a performance service plan. If you like the iPhone, go to your nearest Best Buy.

There are an outrageous number of cases for the iPhone...

I know I've dropped my 3G a couple times because I put it in my lap when I drive, and at least 3 times its fallen when I forget about it and get out... twice onto concrete, once when it was in the case... it still looks brand new, and works flawless...

Plus you can Jailbreak it and get any AppStore apps for free, and create custom themes and all sort of other cool stuff...

If you can't tell, my vote goes to an iPhone...

It is not an insurance because it will not cover lost, theft and submersion under liquids.

It is not half the price of your plan. The cheapest bill you can end up with the iPhone is at LEAST $69.99 + tax.

$.50 a day beats the hell out of $600+tax up front.

I deal with this every day, there's no excuse not to get it.

That is basically being able to put whatever application software developers write for the phone and use it on any GSM network.

Normally you need to pay for the better Apps, anywhere from $.99-$25, when you jailbreak, they are available for free (not legally of course)...

It also allows you to get Apps apps that are not available through the AppStore like video, custom icons, themes, backgrounds, and many other things...

It basically allows you to customize your phone the way Apple should have allowed...



Also, Jailbreaking is not illegal, it is the DL of Illegal apps that Apple frowns upon...

i vote iphone. i have the 3G and when i got it i was asked if i wanted to purchase the apple care. i didn't buy the apple care plan though. it comes with a 1 year warranty from apple. if you keep it in a case it should be fine, even if you drop it on accident. oh and mine's not jailbroken. with the new 3GS you can do a lot of stuff without jailbreaking. like the video. i had two blackberrys before the iphone and i'm glad i made the switch.

I have the blackjack2. I had the blackjack1 before this. They are good phones. I have dropped mine countless times and it works fine. Its also pretty scratch resistant. One time I even got mad and threw my phone up on my roof(2 story) and it slid down and fell. Still works.
