Well first off the uncrappy. The new phone got here yesterday and so far it's doing much better. The LG Chocolate 8500 series seems like it's able to have everything on and still hold the charge. with the added plus that I can use my mp3 ringtones. it's about the same size as the moto but is a slide phone instead of a flip. the "navigation wheel" is basically just fancy trappings, but once I am used to it I am sure it'll be fine...it's not any easier or handier than clicking on the cardinal points of it to scroll it.

And now for the crappy

BEHOLD THE LONG WINDED SUCK FEST )

so that's the story of the crappy...pertinent link below...use it!

sucky.


[livejournal.com profile] ozzwepay's already died and had to be replaced. and while for the most part verizon has been WAAAAAY the fuck better to deal with than At&t, there was an issue with that, but, to give them credit, they did fix it PDQ.

The Moto W755 he got stopped taking a charge at all over the weekend neccesitating a swap for a new of the same phone on monday at the store. The one I got doesn't seem to want to take much of a charge while on, and even if I turn it off and charge it full it's still kind of not living up to it's advertised battery life (the MOTOROLA advertised Battery life...which I am assuming is where verizon gets their specs from)


So it looks like we'll be taking advantage of their 30 day guaruntee. (we can switch equipment or tell them to fuck off altogether without owing them a cent) and choosing different phones.


So anyone with a samsung or LG phone is asked to post their thoughts on these two brands in general or the SCH u410 and the Chocolate in particular

Battery life (how close to advertised spec is it with realistic use...in other words can you turn the phone and features on without charging it every five minutes)
Ruggedness (I'm a huge klutz and [livejournal.com profile] ozzwepay can be hard on phones)
Customization (how much of the phone can I turn into an art project?)
How easy has it been to find accesories (Cases, chargers etc....)
Does your satisfaction with the phone live on (If you were happy with it right away, are you still? If it pissed you off when you got it, did it get better or do you still want to chuck it thru a window?)
Was the interface relatively self explanatory?
Would you reccomend it?
Would you buy that brand again?

we are switching to verizon, phones are ordered and on their way, [livejournal.com profile] ozzwepay's number is staying the same... mine is changing to thwart the 10,000 telemarketers att sold my number to (or whoever) and the four fax numbers that keep calling me. I won't know my new number till the phones get here, But I will hopefully get out a friends only post with the new info asap


if you are curious


here's the phone we are getting, his will be black, and mine will be purple (like our respective souls)

Moto W755
