The purple one is, the black one....not as much. But thanks for the well thought out and elegantly worded comment.

To each his/her own, but I think this phone should have been made a long time ago. The all black one is pretty good phone in my (male) opinion.

Add another to the list. I personally think the purple with its design and color choice is appealing.

at locking down phones and putting the same ugly 6 year UI on all their non-smart phone. If you think that rules you need to get out more.

It's obvious #4 is an AT&T troll trying to start a flame war between VZW and Sprint.

Verizon UI Interface sucks a$$ reaLLY BAD, Seriously guys try changing up a little bit, you guys are way to old school lol, Sprint is reinventing phones, while Verizon just has crappy ones and high prices. Take that to the bank and smoke it

I admit, the VZW UI is pretty bland... and IN THE PAST their phones were suspect, but for the past few years VZW has stepped it up a lot. In regards to this board though... the Highnote resembles the Chocolate 2 (VZW now has the Chocolate 3 which is a noteworthy device); The Rant resembles the enV (VZW now has the enV2... both of which look better than the Rant)... and the Lotus reminds me of the u740 (Alias), but the Alias looks better. So yeah, these 3 new devices look and perform like devices VZW released a long time ago. VZW's UI might be boring, but the only noteworthy phone Sprint has that VZW doesn't is the Instinct.

And I failed to mention that instead of the Instinct, we have the Dare. I am not going to start a flame war and try and compare the two devices.

Its really funny how no one cares at the fact that Apple locks their stuff down too, where they really want you to buy only their products, thus "crippling" them as many of you would say, but yet when some carriers decide to do that their phones, in which they have purchased for a whole lot more than you actually would, (or for some of you) did- pay for... then maybe I'd start thinking be for commenting so quicky about paying a lot of $$$, for a "piece of crap" phone, not to mention the fact that, um.. yea, your not the one on the table making "revolutionary" phones for people. I mean common guys get a grip! Are you the same as the next person? I didn't think so, cause if you were, there would not be a comment post like this where people had differentiating opinions. Anyways, back to just getting out of bed. hehe..

I have the same feeling about the iphone. The main differnece being you can "jailbrake" and iphone and add 3rd party apps. The fact is as a consumer I purchase the device and should be able to do what ever I want with it and add what ever I want. When you buy a PC or laptop you can add anything you want to it. Why should phones be any different?

So if you buy an Xbox 360 do you, as a consumer, expect to be able to play PS3 games on it?

posted on 10 Sep 2008, 19:38

Oh, and pirated games as well?

A PS3 game on an XBOX would not be considered a 3rd party app so you are comparing apples to oranges. I did have my orignal XBOX loaded with 1000 games from nintindo, sega, and the original PS though. Just like jailbreaking the iphone you can hack an XBOX 360 to play pirated games too. I don't do that since I have to send my XBOX in about every 6 months for the 3 ring of death and that would voild my warranty.

Actually games are considered 3rd party software unless they are made by SONY/Microsoft/Nintendo.... so its apples and apples.

So for Sprint what phones better LG or Samsung? I Have had nothing but Sanyos but I am interested in this Purple Lotus. I like all the featires of it. Looks like you can view your text on the outer screen which I like. I thought about the purple rant but I think I want the Lotus. I have a Katana DLX now in pink and am loving the purple.
