Yeah, this one has been through hell too, I tipped a canoe a few years ago and thought I lost the phone about an hour later I rowed past the same spot and seen it sitting on bank of mud I went over a it had one missed call on it, I couldn't believe it worked let alone stayed on.

the blackjack would be my recommendation but you'd have to switch to at&t and depends on whether you're happy w/ your verizon coverage

Yeah, verizon wireless seems fine. I shopped around a while back and all of the major carriers are about the same as far as price and coverage.
I'm a little worried about getting a phone like a blackjack or BB because of the large unprotected screen. I feel like I would scratch the **** out of it pretty fast. Also, I don't really need/want a PDA-type phone...I really want a phone that is a phone first, and all that other stuff second, if at all

enV, enV2, or voyager, depending on how much you wanna spend. I personally text a lot and will never get another phone without a keyboard. I have the enV and have nothing bad to say about it whatsoever

DO NOT get the voyager or chocolate.
The voyager is way over priced for what it can do.
the chocolate scratches extremely easily.

yeah, i forgot to mention that, my mom got a chocolate and my sister and brother got the venus, they all ended up with new phones within the first 4 or 5 months because the verizon touch screen messes up so much

I always kind of assumed the chocolate and venus were geared for girls because of the names, (even though I'm not sure how if you can even design a cell phone for a gender?) I wish they would come up with some better, manlier phone names, like the "destroyer" or the "diesel"
"Hey man, i like your new phone...what is that, the "terminator"? Cool dude."

the samsung that flips out to a keyboard for verizon is nice I actually sold cell phones for a living

I got a case and a screen protector off ebay for like $10 total. Keeps the phone from breaking when I drop it, and the screen protector has taken a few good hits already..and it just holds on with static cling, so it wont leave any glue behind.
I love the bj... it can do 5+ things at once... amazing phone, just takes time to get used to the keyboard.
I go through a phone every 12 months or so... my last samsung lasted me about 18 months and I dropped it at least once a day. Im somewhat clumsy with phones.

I love my Moto Q9m.
I do use email, bluetooth, MP3, videos, camera, internet, etc. from it though.
Fantastic reception, 'feel', keyboard is great.
Smoking deal on it when you reup with VZW. I got mine for $29.

I use a HTC TYTN and love it. In its leather case I have dropped it plenty of times and nothing has ever happened. I use the screen protector that comes with it it and the actual touch screen has never been damaged. I'm on rogers in Canada so in the USA I would probably have the TILT(renamed and branded for the US market) which is the newer model of this phone. It's more like having a tiny laptop. The QWERTY Keyboard slides out at an angle. Most phone with Keyboards WILL have MP3 etc etc but just think of it as a bonus. Its kinda clunky/big like a BB but since I can put tons of freeware on it thats distributed online I have customized it the way I want. Or if you want to wait, I know I will be getting the "Sony Erikson: Xperia" when it comes out. Similar design (they hired the company that makes my phone to make it) but its thiner, faster, has AGPS, Metal Body and more user friendly.
Another mention about the phone I currently use. I clip the case/phone to the back of my belt during workouts.I use the Motorola S9 bluetooth headset and its amazing. No more wires getting in the way at the gym. Not so great for when you have to put your head against a bench however. But everything else its really nice to have. Play, pause, volume, skip track and answer call all by tapping the side of the headset.
