Need Smartphone recommendations

by sdillon317 / February 6, 2010 3:08 AM PST

Had an Apple iPhone, but have had several issues with it and coverage, drop calls, etc.

Now looking for a new smart phone to replace it and would like something that has the ability to open Office apps to view documents, etc.

I love the touch screen and web on the iPhone. Is there anything out there that can still give me that, plus the other items I'm looking for?

Thanks for your input.

That depends

The iPhone OS/GUI is very user friendly, as you've already figured out ;). If you want an extremely flexible device, grab a touch pro 2 if you plan on staying w/ ATT. Not sure if you will like the touch screen experience with the other smartphones, but you will have a whole host of customizations available to you with Windows Mobile that are much more restricted on the iPhone. It just isn't the same UI unfortunately.

Regarding coverage issues(?), have you actually tried your current ATT SIM card in another non-iPhone to see if it meets your needs(?) If even a dumb-phone can't get a decent signal, it sounds like you first need to find a carrier that works, then the actual handset.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
