My OG Droid is finally starting to wear out (overheating, force-closes, unresponsiveness). So I'm in the market for a new phone. Maybe a new carrier too, if I can swing it until next March when the fiancee's contract is up.
I've been looking at some Windows phones. Android was great when my phone was my only option for apps and games, but I've got a rooted Kindle Fire now that's much more suited for those tasks. Now I mostly just want a phone that can do phone/internet/messaging/media/email quickly. I like the Windows Phone interface a lot, and they seem like they have good built-in systems for the stuff I need after the 7.5 update.
Anyone have any experience with them?
I gather that Windows Phone 8 is coming out soon, and I'm wondering if it might be worth waiting for. As is, neither Verizon (my current provider) or Sprint (the one I'm eyeing) carry more than a single Windows Phone (the HTC Trophy and Arrive, respectively).
Both seem a little dated. The Lumia 900 seems like it's more my angle, but apparently it won't be compatible with the new OS. I have to think that some new phones will crop up for Verizon or Sprint when the OS launches, but I wonder about the costs.
Feel free to use this thread to talk about your current phone situation, model, provider, etc. I haven't been paying for my own phones very long, so I'm collecting info.
