Ive thought about a blackberry type phone but I think you have to pay extra for the data transfers right??
Im most likely going to be needing to buy a new cell phone in the next few months.
I travel to Europe at least a couple of times a year for work and to visit family.
In the coming year the traveling is going to become a lot more extensive.
I mainly go to Italy but will hopefully be going to the UK, Germany etc.
So I figured I should make my new phone a quad band.
I have my service through Cingular/ATT and would prefer to get a new gsm card when I get to europe rather than use 'roaming' att minutes.
I need the phone mainly to talk. Dont care about the camera part.
dont really care about mp3 playback.
I just want something that has good reception, good talk battery life and that doesnt turn into a lit charcoal briquette if I talk more than a few minutes.
all suggestions greatly appreciated.
