Cellphone Upgrade for Verizon - Go for it or not?
April 11, 2009 1:57pm CST
I'm able to go ahead and get an upgrade through Verizon but I'm not sure about the new phones out there today and if I really want to get rid of the phone I have now. Right now I have the Krzr and I absolutely love it, I've had to get the phone replaced 3 times this year because of malfunctions but they were free replacements and since my last one in December I haven't had any issues so far. So thats why I'm debating about getting a new phone. I'm always interested to see the new upgrades and everything else, but the thing for me is I don't want at touchscreen phone which most of the new phones seem to be. Plus I have to have a phone that is thin and slim. I hate anything bulky since most of the time my phone stays in my back pocket. Has anyone heard of any new phones from Verizon that seem to fit my requirements and haven't had too many issues with them? Or do you just recommend sticking with the phone I have at the moment.

I've been using Verizon for the past 6 years, and my experience with them has always been alright. I've upgraded 3 times, from a simple flip phone, to the EnV, to the EnV2. I love the EnV2, and would recommend it if you send a lot of texts or emails from your phone, and like to browse the internet. It also acts like an iPod, and you can store up to 4Gigs of music on it with an SD card. I've dropped my phone *so many times*, and it's always been running fine, so that's another reason why I have it! I read that you would prefer a phone that is sleek and slim, and while the EnV2 is a lot sleeker than the old version, there are probably thinner versions out there. My advice would be to just go to the Verizon store and tell them what you're looking for. Just because you walk into the store doesn't mean your obligated to buy anything (although those salespeople will do everything they can to make sure you don't leave emptyhanded!). Check out the different versions, and ask what types of new phones will be on the market in the next few months. That way you'll know whether or not you should wait to upgrade.
