    Hey guys, I'm considering leaving the BB temporarily and getting a normal phone. I'm going to not be using internet or downloading apps and games. If you were to downgrade to a normal-person phone, what would you go to?

    Thanks for the input,

    -Evan

    PS) Why am I downgrading? I'm delaying gratification and eventually getting a Storm

    A Sony K790a, what a great phone that was. I was also very fond of my Nokia N95-3 and Nokia 8800 Sirocco. The Razr2 V9 is a great phone, it has none of the sluggishness that kills all other Moto phones. I also have a v60g and a Nokia 8890 as old school back up phones.

    Get a blackberry pearl flip. Looks like a "normal phone" but better and if you decide to use data you can

    So what are you doing with your Curve? It doesn't make sense to me to go buy another phone when you already have a perfectly good one. Why not just not use the internet?

    Before my bb I had an LG venus, its girlie but it was a great phone..the camera was the best feature! But I also agree with the poster who mentioned the LG Dare or Voyager.

    I guess that if I could not have a BB, I would get a MotoQ or that new Nokia that looks like a BB.

    i would get one of the slider messaging phones, i couldn't imagine going back to a T9 keyboard after having a full qwerty one

    For simply a full k/board: Pantech Slate
    PDA capable: Nokia E71
    Basic: Samsung A727

    And just my opinion, all BBs are "normal person" phones and
    going to anything else is not a downgrade.

    If not a berry, I would recommend a LG. In my experience they are high quality devices and I know AT&T has a good variety of LGs to choose from.

    If I were forced to step down to a non-berry, it would be to my Nokia N82. The keypad is abysmal, but I love the 5MP camera.

    I would stop cell use! Lol.

    For you... since you are at&t... what are you going to do other than making calls?

    Regular phones... SE w760a or Moto v3xx

    Curves aren't flashy to me. I stuck a black skin on it and it isn't all elitist snob looking,,, why bother getting a diff phone, if ppl see you with a storm they'll think just the same as if you had a different flashy phone.

    Ok you think a red curve is too flashy but when you get a storm later on it won't be bling bling weird

    yeah I wouldn't buy a new phone if I'm just gonna drop money on another BB in a few months...

    But I guess if I HAD to give up my BB I'd go with a phone that has a full QWERTY keyboard just cause I can't stand T9. An LG Reveal or Samsung Cleo- both girly phones but with the flip qwerty form factor.

    I want to go from something non-flashy to the flashy storm.

    I do like the Sony Ericsons... Perhaps one of their sliders is a good compromise?
