    I'm not sure where I should post this. Please move if necessary :S

    Hello CellPhoneForums!

    I need your help! I am a Canadian and I am planning to move to Boston, Mass, in December/January. I'm trying to get a phone that will serve my needs now and then.

    I have a bias against Apple so I want either an Android or WP7 phone. It MUST be unlocked (as I will be travelling a lot overseas and plan to collect SIM cards with the cheapest plans I can find) so I am ok with paying full price (instead of being locked in).

    I will want to be able to surf the net (just check my work's website, email, but video is a nice plus). I do want GPS, and the ability to look up local restaurants or watering holes, but I could not care less about extra apps.


    Any help is appreciated guys,

    EDIT: Oh yes. And tethering is also a definite plus.

    Did I say or do something wrong?

    Re: What is right for me?

    I am aware.

    I have seen these stores and all of them have the 'best phones.' I'm not very phone savvy, so I was hoping for some tips on what to look for, what's a rip-off, what's more important, and what's just marketing fluff.


    Please post if you have any serious suggestions,

    @Electronicsky

    Sounds about right. I guess I was hoping someone could do #2 for me.

    Thanks, I'll figure it out

    Get an LG Optimus One P500. Android 2.2 and its got all the plus that you are looking for live divx support for video playing and wifi tathering... You don't care about other apps you say? I beg to disagree once you try loading some ... I got my optimus one from timtechs.com... this guys are awesome... Been using mine for weeks now and I must say I'm empressed, it exceeded all my expectations

    Hi I suggest you get a LG Optimus One P500. Android 2.2 or iPad or blackberry curve or blackberry bold 9700. They have amazing features.For prepaid cards i don't think it is wise for you to collect and buy Sim cards every time you travel, why not buy a international prepaid Sim card instead to get InTouch with your loved ones?

    happy to help 0sinner, and as a plus... the price is really awesome compare to other phones like HTC that has the same hardware specification. Its popularity is climbing up at gsmarena.com ...regarding collecting a sim- im not sure really which one is cheaper, to collect a sim or to have an international one... i would assume its cheaper to collect especially if you are going to places around asia...
