    Right now I have a sidekick 2008 but I'm unsure if I want to go for the new sidekick that's coming out.

    What's the best plan out there in your opinion? :hmm:

    12 Deaf people in my small community have Samsung Galaxy. Also many like Samsung Epic and HTC Evo, and iPhone. All have P2P video phone call ability w/ VCO and relay, and have ITP relay as well. Plus all other cool smartphone things!

    I don't really use video phones much. I am more a text based person.

    Yes, but not portable. I could use a computer instead of a TTY for the same thing.

    I went to Tmo store, they said not yet arrive in, could be coming in end of april. If the price goes up in the plans then I could close the Tmo Acct and then join the Virgin Mobile either at Best Buy or Radio Shack..

    I can't hear on a phone, and most people here can't either, but this quote is from Phonak.

    I was all set to get the iPhone, but I was bowled over by the HTC Evo. Many here in my area have this, and it looks phenomenal. When my Tmobile contract is up next month (finally!) I'm buying that Evo and going to Sprint.

    My daughter has that, and my granddaughter and I use it to play Angry Birds!

    (She is better at it on the phone than I am.)
