The Guide of a MOSSLover Becky Isserman's Blog
So my friend Leah and I hung out most of the day yesterday in between cooking.  We ate some awesome pancakes at the Old Pancaked House in St. Louis, went to my Parent's Seder, and watched a Forgetting Sarah Marshall.  I went to bed about 1 am and heard my phone half ringing and I just kind of shrugged it off.  I wake up and listen to the message and I can't hear half of a message from Leah.  I called her and she told me there was a huge gas leak and they had to call 911.  Her dog Rusty was kind of lethargic and they could smell gas from the hallway.  They called the maintenance guy too, but it took about thirty minutes for the guy to get there and he was on site.  911 came there, found all the neighbors, and turned the gas off in the building.  Laclede Gas and the Maintenance Guy eventually came and no one could tell why the gas was leaking and find the problem.  So what they think happened is that the maintenance guy "fixed" the gas leak they were told they had last week and turned the gas on without the gas company's approval.  So finally Laclede turned on the other neighbor's gas and the apartment complex decided to move Leah and her boyfriend out of that apartment temporarily.  I can't believe this happened to them....It sounds like something that happens in a tv, movie, or soap opera.  However, in my life this kind of stuff happens to me and people around me, so by now it's kind of a laugh at it and move on situation for both me and Leah.
Anyway, getting to the SMART Phone Part...
I want a Smart Phone, because I am a twitter, facebook, e-mail, and blog addict now.  I need to feed the habit.  So I am looking into phones with AT&T does anyone have a good suggestion or do you guys think I should wait a little longer for that 3G IPhone?

If you're looking for a phone on the AT&T network the Tilt is pretty sweet. I did a review of it on my blog a while back and I've had mine for 4 months now and love it. There's also the Pantech Duo which is pretty slick...decisions decisions!

I know someone that owns a Tilt. They were at MOSS Camp it looked pretty cool with the full keyboard. I will look into the Duo. My main concern is memory and how big the flash cards are these days. I might end up buying a new ipod and trading my old one in for a Touch if I end up getting a non-Iphone.

With the release of the 2.0 firmware for the iPhone - you will have a whole new phone. Even without 3g (which is going to kill the battery) an "original" w/ 2.0 firmware will be a very compelling tool.

Currently there are interfaces / application on the iPhone for Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and I use mine to access my Moveable Type / TypePad blog.

I've had the Tilt - returned it for the iPhone - mainly because I want a phone I can use and go all or most of the weekend w/o a recharge - and the Tilt (and most full screen Windows Mobile phones) can go about a day and a couple hours before they crap out.

Nice thing about AT&T - you have 30 days to try the phone - and can return / exchange it no questions asked if you find it doesn't meet your needs.

Thanks for the input Mike.
I am going to bet that the IPhone with 3G is better than this Razor I have with 3G. I was an early 3G adopter with AT&T. The Razor VXXX was the first 3G phone and it loses a charge faster than I can say "Monkey"....
I love IPods. My first IPod was bought about 4 or 5 years ago and the thing still works. I drop it all the time and the speakers have not broken. The battery keeps a charge for several hours. I love it. I'm sure the IPhone will be slightly different, but I think Apple makes there phones far sturdier than Motorola. My current problem is that I dropped my Razor too many times and the speakers are going out. Half the time I am not heard on the phone or I cannot hear anyone. You know what...The battery sounds like a nicer tool than the 3G. They just lowered the prices...I have a decent paycheck coming May 9th, so I'm considering a 16gb IPhone at that point in time.

For heaven's sake, you LIVE in Sprint country... you HAVE to choose them.

I have the HTC Mogul running Windows Mobile 6.0 and it has EVDO Rev A ... high speed on my phone! Sweet.
