You tell us: Did you get a cell phone for Christmas?

You tell us: Did you get a cell phone for Christmas?
Last week we asked you which cell phone you wanted from Santa. Now that Christmas has come, we'd like to know if you did in fact get a shiny new phone under the Christmas Tree. Is it a Smartphone, such as the Apple iPhone 4, Samsung Focus, or Motorola DROID X - or a more basic model, like the LG Cosmos Touch, Pantech Laser, or LG Optimus T? Or perhaps you didn't get a phone (yet) and plan to buy one with some cash or gift cards you recieved - maybe even waiting to see what's unveiled at CES next month? Let us know in the comment section below.

yeah its pretty terrible. For T-Mobile I reccomend the G2, Mytouch 4g, or the vibrant. You're gonna spend a little more, but its definitely for the best.

I bought my mother in law a Samsung Intercept. And I'm using gift cards that I received to buy an Archos 101 10" Android tablet. Not quite a phone for me, but close.

Nope. I must have been naughty.... Probably because I am waiting to see what Verizon does about fielding LTE before taking another plunge. My Droid X is on a 1 year contract that is up in July, 2011. Perhaps Verizon will announce a Droid X LTE with dual core processor and LTE? Time will tell.

Got the HTC Mozart!!
Amazing and I am absolutely loving the live tiles, the HTC Hub is a perfect addition, its amazing! (I know I said that twice)

Along with that I got an iPad,
now i understand why it is so amazing - the whole experience is optimized by the screen, and the size of it is amazing - such a thin device doing something so big!!
yeh

I got the Droid Incredible for an early Christmas present like 4 weeks ago. Now that 4G phone from HTC that's going to Verizon, I think I want that!? Hopfully I can get it!(: It would be cool if Verizon had a special deal with all these 4G phones coming where you can upgrade to one!

Well good luck cuz they will tell you you can, but next time you come into a store or walmart they will say that you are not eligeble for an upgrade:( same thing happened to me!

I´m getting a Samsung Captivate this week, it was that or the Sony Xperia x10, but I saw a vs video about the two and the screen of the captivate is amazing you can´t compare 256k colors against 16.2 millions,sure the xperia has and a 8 mp camera,but android updates i think get faster to Samsung.

74. Boti95 (Posts: 162; Member since: 05 Sep 2010)


Well, I dont know how u r going to customize it cuz they are going to close down the Kin store online where you customize everything in the phone. If you were gonna get that, u might as well get an Sidekick or an Android, (preferably Android!)
