I have tmobile i ruined my phone the other day so im having to use my husband old phone which is crap. Ive been looking online for tmobile phones or unlcoked at&t phones on ebay and amazon. Im not finding anything i like in my price range. so here is my question. What phone do you have or have had in the past that you really liked? 

UGrewInMyHeart --- 6 years ago -

Blackberry Curve 8520!!! It's amazing :) I've had it for going on 2 years now since it first came out and I haven't found a better phone and don't want to lol The battery time is awesome. I had it through t-mobile but I unlocked it and now we go through Walmart Fam Mobile. That's actually what I'm looking for right now - another 8520 for my hubby cuz he hates touchscreens (he has the optimus T) and he's stuck on getting one like mine lol 

Are we done yet --- 6 years ago -

See i like the touch screen and im so use to it. Infact my husbands old blackberry pearl flip i keep wanting to use touch screen lol. The phone i really like i cant afford right now. We baught a samsung galaxy capitvate from my friend who got rid of at&t and we got it unlcoked to use with tmobile. Tmobile has one like that only its called vibrant but its like 450 and ya im not looking to spend near that i dont want to spend much more then 200

ugrewinmyheart here is a blackberry 8520 new on ebay for 185 and its unlocked. After seeing this one, this is one of them i looked at if i wasnt going to get touch screen.

http://www.ebay.com/ctg/BlackBerry-Curve-8520-Black-Unlocked-Smartphone-/100046638?_cqr=true&_dmpt=Cell_Phones&_nkwusc=blackberry+curve+8520+unlcoked&_pcategid=9355&_pcatid=801&_refkw=blackberry+curve+8520+unlocked&_rusck=1&_trkparms=65%253A12%257C66%253A2%257C39%253A1%257C72%253A5216&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14

I don't like the touch screens because I get impatient and makes my ADHD act up :-/ lol Wow yeah last time I spent that much on a phone I was in 8th grade - saved up money and spent like $350 on some dumb phone lol. I'm trying to find him a curve 8520 for under $100, but that's not working so well. He said oh well we can spend more if we need too I really want that I cant stand this phone. MEN!! lol I'm all over eBay looking. Sorry I wasn't much help since I'm anti-touchscreen LOL 

UGrewInMyHeart --- 6 years ago -

Oh yeah, I saw that one. I found a couple for right around $100 ish and I'm "watching" a couple right now. It's p's me off when I'm searching and put in all the preferences (like carrier: "unlocked") and darn Verizon & Sprint phones come up! I'm like "REALLY?!" unlocked is where you can use it with any GSM carrier, not flippin a clean esn where it's not connected to an account lol I'll click on the phone and the phone has Sprint or Verizon logo on it Grr lol 

UGrewInMyHeart --- 6 years ago -

I'm just cheap :-/ lol 

Are we done yet --- 6 years ago -

lol new wise you wont find it any cheaper but if you found it used on ebay you might could get it for that price. My mom, sister and father in law has had nothing but blackberrys for the past like 3 or 4 years.

I have also spent alot of money on phones and thats why i dont want to spend much more than 200 on one. The most expencive phone i baught was the samsung memior. that was a 500 dollar phone never again. I had to replace it several times due to issues with it. And right after my warenty went out my touch screen stopped working. So i was forced to buy a new phone which i got the samsung gravity t that i dropped in water the other day. I havent dropped a phone in water since my daughter was 2 and would always thow my phones in the bath tub. I havent even had the samsung gravity t for a year yet. I got it in febuary. that one was 219. The only one i can find thats all touch screen that i like is 160 but i was just seeing what else people had that they liked before i order a new one. I cant order till pay day (wednesday) so i have a little bit to do some more searching 

Are we done yet --- 6 years ago -

oh which you can now get the samsung memior for like 130 new on ebay. grrr my husband asked me if i wanted that one again i was like uh no. The only reason why i got it was fot the 8 megapixal camera because i didnt have a camera at the time lol. 

UGrewInMyHeart --- 6 years ago -

Yeah, that will just have to be his b-day present (Sept 5) well that and to pre-order 2K11 lol. Yeah ever since I've had my blackberry I don't want anything else. I've never had ANY problems with it and the battery charges super fast, so even if I happen to run it down pretty fast (using it a lot - games, talking, etc) I don't have to worry about waiting forever for it to charge. Wow yeah I wouldn't want to spend more than that either. Ugggh it's so crazy how much phones cost! If I find a phone I like and/or would like to get I still get paranoid like "oh gosh what if I end up not liking it" and I'll keep comparing it to my 8520 lol. Yeah I'm waiting until payday, but still doing my researching / "watching" on eBay lol. A good thing about eBay though is if you need to pay a few days later (even a week sometimes) or past the sellers expected payment date they'll usually be understanding so it's pretty nice :) 

UGrewInMyHeart --- 6 years ago -

Oh yeah that's one of the touchscreens I REALLLLY like, MAINLY because of the touchscreen; it's resistive (you can use your nails or tip of finger) not capacitive (like most touchscreens out today). That's the main reason I like those kind because I have short stubby fingers LOL. Also, yeah the camera on the Memoir is amazing! 

Are we done yet --- 6 years ago -

Ya when i dropped my phone in water my husband goes well buy a new phone happy birthday i was like my birthday isnt till sept 16th but i guess. 

UGrewInMyHeart --- 6 years ago -

LOL my husband would probably say the same thing. I wanted to do dinner or something for his birthday, but he doesn't like to get out too much so his phone will be his present lol 

UGrewInMyHeart --- 6 years ago -

Have you seen the HTC Surround by AT&T? I found one for less than $200 ($160), not sure if that's something that would suit you.

I have no clue why that link is so dang long but this is the one i have my mind set on unless i find something else. 

UGrewInMyHeart --- 6 years ago -

Yeah I think that's more than one link...? I'ma try again by cutting it apart lol 

UGrewInMyHeart --- 6 years ago -

figured it out :) the page link ends at "_2111" 

UGrewInMyHeart --- 6 years ago -

Oh yeah that one's nice. Be careful w/ China :-/ sometimes they're very complicated, hard to setup, and sometimes end up not working. That's just from what I've heard / seen. I know my hubby had a iphone from overseas before and it would never work. It should be fine, but just be cautious 

Are we done yet --- 6 years ago -

I just tried it, it worked. this is the title on thep one. 4.3" Dual Sim Android 2.2 GPS Cell Phone A2000 T-mobile. Which this one is also 160. From the looks of it, it reminds me alot of my husbands samsung captivate which is kinda what im looking for becuase i really like his phone. Its just the captivatewhich is the at&t version and the vibrant which is the tmobile version is out of my price range thats why im trying to find somehting similar that is cheaper. we buaght his captivate off of my friend who got rid of at&t for 175. 

Are we done yet --- 6 years ago -

I thought about that. My husband brought that up to me. He goes will it work. I said it says it will and its unlocked so it should. Being a top seller im not too worried about it but im going to keep looking to see if i can find one in the U.S or if i find a different phone i like. Plus that seller has a 14day money back garentee i just have to pay for shipping. so if it didnt work i could send it back.

The htc surround was another one i was looking at but i would rather have my phone new not used andi cant fine that in my price range for new 

UGrewInMyHeart --- 6 years ago -

Well yeah then they should be totally fine to go through :) 

Are we done yet --- 6 years ago -

maybe im being too picky about what i want lol. When i told my aunt i was shopping for phone she said thats hard its like shopping for a car i have to agree lol 

UGrewInMyHeart --- 6 years ago -

I def agree with you there! esp with me, I'm picky with just about everything LOL 

UGrewInMyHeart --- 6 years ago -

I've been looking for a new purse for I don't know how long. Now that is what I'm the PICKIEST with lol 

Are we done yet --- 6 years ago -

oh geeze. i dont carry a purse but when i go purse shopping with my mom you can never get her out of the store. i swear at one time she use to buy a purse every 3 months. lol 

UGrewInMyHeart --- 6 years ago -

Yeah that's how I used to be, but being married can't do that anymore lol. The most recent purse I got was from my mom she got brand new for a $1.00 LOL, so now it's time for a new one really bad!! Especially after I got sick of carrying it the other day I just carried my wallet I forgot it in the car and hubby went in to work overnight (well drive behind the 25mile ruck). That night I went somewhere with my mom that night and was so paranoid that I dropped it somewhere or lost it. Thank gosh it was still in the car in the passenger seat, so after that I'm like screw this no more taking chances I NEED a new purse! lol 

What a great life --- 6 years ago -

I have an iPhone for sale if.you are looking.for one. It is not unlocked but the place in the Manhattan mall can do that for you. It's an iPhone 3g 16gb white 

Are we done yet --- 6 years ago -

I dont really want an iphone. My husband wouldnt mind it. I could use his captivate and him the iphone but he probably doesnt want white. Plus i wouldnt buy it unless you took it to at&t and got it unlcoked 1st becuase we baught a captivate from my freind and tmobile and at&t both said it would work with tmobile. When my husband put his sim card in it wanted a unlock code. We called at&t to get the unlock code but they said it woudlnt be available till july 7th so we had to wait to get it unlcoked. Thats why i wouldnt buy it until i know its unlocked. But thanks for the offer.

Ok your welcome.

I have tmobile i ruined my phone the other day so im having to use my husband old phone which is crap. Ive been looking online for tmobile phones or unlcoked at&t phones on ebay and amazon. Im not finding anything i like in my price range. so here is my question. What phone do you have or have had in the past that you really liked?


HI if the price for unlocked phone is not satisfied for you .You can better buy locked phone from ebay ,amazon and so on because usually locked phone cost lesser compare to unlocked one .SO you can buy locked phone and get it unlocked using sites like Mobileunlocksolutions.com here they render unlock code for all mobile models at affordable cost .After unlocking your mobile you can freely use it with any GSM sim .
