I'm pretty knowledgeable about most things tech except for cellphones. I don't like talking on the phone thus I don't have much interest in cellphones. I am currently on Verizon Wireless with a Motorola Razr and my 2 year contract ends this October. I move frequently so I have ditched landlines in favor of cellphones which have allowed me to keep the same phone number through multiple moves. I was wondering if you guys could help me make a more educated decision this October when my contract expires. Some things I don't like about my past 1.5 years with a cellphone that I would like to fix.
1. sound quality is lousy
2. I want to be able to easily take pictures off my phone and put them on my computer just by dragging and dropping via USB (something the RAZR won't allow)
3. I want to be able to easily add ringtones or make my own via the USB drag and drop method.
I don't use my phone for texting, or internet, or movies, or music or games...I use it as a phone.
I guess I just want a flexible (open?) user friendly phone that is more open and will let me connect it to my PC.
Can anyone recommend a phone? Will I be able to keep my current phone number if I switch to a new phone? What if I switch to a new carrier?
I currently share 700 minutes/month for $80 between my wife and I. This is just enough for the both of us, if you know of a better plan please tell me. Basically any info about anything is greatly appreciated. I felt very uniformed last time I signed up for service, this time I would like it to be different.
