how would i know?

i think the key thing missing in your inquiry is....oh i dont know.......what you need?? what kinda of bland question is that? do you have a preference of what kind of phone you like? flip, slider, candy bar??? every person has a preference of what they want. do you want a good camera, a keyboard, mp3 payer? im not going to suggest a phone without first knowing what it is you're searching for. what is the definition of best? what i think is the best phone for verizon is going to be completely different from what my dog thinks is the best phone fo verizon. and what my dog thinks is going to be different from what my cat thinks is the best phone for verizon..

Best phones, in my opinion.

If you are interested in multimedia,

the EnV is definitely my prime choice.
Large internal screen, great for music/music ringtones, amazing for texting, and has a loud speakerphone on account of the speakers on both sides of the 2.25inch internal screen, and a full QWERTY keyboard for txting make it an overall great phone, i've used them plenty and love them.

If you are a business person,

you need e-mail, the internet, txting, large address book,
ability to use the phone ANYWHERE.
then you should probably look into a blackberry [duh?].
the 8830 seems to be great.
never used one,
but with dual-mode functionality,
a large screen, full QWERTY keyboard,
amazing e-mail -- blackberry is known for there amazing e-mail capabilities.
then that would probably be the best.

If you don't want a crazy phone with a full keyboard and all of that.
Then the new Razr 2 looks very nice.
Large screen,
cosmetically pleasing.
even thinner then its predecessor.
seems very nice.


to anyone who isn't checking gizmodo, engadget and all those sites.

There are rumors that the new Q9m will be coming out within the next month,
along with the new i760 and maybe even the XV6800 aka Mogul.

Those phones will hopefully spice things up,

hope this helped you out.

I really liked the EnV. My cousin has one and I tried it out. Worked great. Better sound than my phone I have now. I can hear the other person really easy. I'm also looking at that new Samsung that has the dual flip screen, Very cool. It would probaly be that, the Razer, or the EnV. Thanks for your help

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
