Cell phone envy

This weekend baldghoti got his new phone-- an LG EnV. jitrbug52 just got one too. And I know a couple others with EnVs as well. And well, I'm envious.

Great pictures, great interface, and a huge nice QWERTY keyboard. Say goodbye to T9 FOREVER. And say goodbye to Candythephone.

My 'New Every Two' credit toward a new phone came up and I can get it any day now. My current phone has a 1.3 megapixel camera and I really wanted a specific phone with a 3.2 megapixel, pretty much the best on the market right now, but I played with it in the Verizon store and hate the phone otherwise. The EnV is a 2.0 mp camera, and the next best thing.

I really do still love my current phone, however, so it seems mean to Candy to replace her when she's still reasonably awesome, even two years after purchase.

So here's the plan, I think: New phones come out in November, in time for the "holiday season." I'm going to keep Candy till then for sure, and then see what comes out. They'll probably have a slightly better version of the EnV. If they don't, it's likely that the current EnV will be cheaper anyway. Or maybe another great phone with another great camera will come out that I love more.

Either way, I've made the decision to wait till November to get any sort of new phone.

This was an awfully long entry to state that.

I know two people with an EnV. It's cool.

I used to have the original "enV", the LG VX9800 (see icon). Fantastic phone, great came, great qwerty. You can't go wrong with any of the handsets in that series.

But yes, be smart and keep waiting. The new enV (VX10000) is on it's way-- probably Nov? It's looking pretty sleek so far.


I'm such a phone dork. XD

Damn! I knew I should have waited! Oh well, I do love my phone! Kinda upset that now everyone seems to have one... I thought I was cool, it was fun while it lasted.

Oops... forgot this.
It's cheaper to buy online, rather than in the store.

Re: Oops... forgot this.
I get a credit from Verizon that I think is only redeemable in the Verizon stores (not even Best Buy, etc)

Not true how do you think I got my phone? Yeah I may have broke the other one... but I had been due for my upgrade since February, I just didn't really like my choices. If you have an online account it will tell you what phones are compatible with your current plan and show prices after the credit. If not get one!

Damn I keep cutting off before I'm finished!

I was looking at the Green EnV, which was only available at Circuit City... they told me I could buy it there, but it would have cost me $50 dollars more than if I got it at Verizon, and $100 more than the one online.

I definitely have an online account-- but at the verizon store a few days ago they told me my "new every two" credit wouldn't work at Best Buy...

Much like pineapples, I am hardcore.
