New Phone Every Two

So the battery on Joyce’s cell phone is dying.  She has to charge it every night now when she didn’t have to as often before.  Verizon gives us credit towards a new phone with their “New Every Two” option and Joyce’s is coming up at the end of this month.  If she upgrades….which phone should she get?  She likes a candy-bar style phone (no slide or flip) and the size of her current phone.  Plus, it should have Bluetooth to sync with our RDX’s hands-free link.  Optionally, it should be able to withstand being dropped by Melody or the new baby on an occasional basis =p

  1. I guess it really depends on what she will be using it for. I personally would prefer the Blackberry but that’s because I want to be able to get email and use the calendar function on the phone. I realize that the Dare probably has those functions as well and I have to be honest, I haven’t really seen how they work on the Dare so I can’t comment on that. All I can say is that I think the Pearl performs those functions pretty well. The Dare seems like it’s more of a personal media device while the Pearl seems like it’s more of a productivity device. Just my two cents…

  2. I’d go with the blackberry. Ray has it and the battery life is awesome. He has the pearl (smaller one) and I have the curve (bigger one). I think we both charge it every other day or even every 2 days if you don’t use it too much. They’re also great for keeping reminders! Hope that helps!
