    New Phone for Wife???

    My wife is looking to upgrade her LG Voyager to a smartphone before Verizon goes all anti-unlimited data...

    She doesn't want a DroidX (or X2), but doesn't know what she does want...

    Any suggestions on (gasp, don't kill me for asking) other phones? She's kind of looking at the Incredible 2, iPhone, Thunderbolt...basically an Android phone.

    Thanks in advance,
    Nathan

    If she wants 4g service then Charge or Bolt. A friend of mine just picked up the DInc2, nice phone as well but no 4g...
    Where my time is spent away from the office!

    I forgot to add that she needs something easy to use, hard to mess up and durable (she keeps it in her purse) and with a battery that lasts 1-2 days...is there anything like that?

    Most women are about the frills of the device and how it looks and the little goodies that come with it...with that said 4g if u live in or around an area that had the coverage. A forward facing camera for sure and Deffinately an 8 MP or better back camera...and its gotta have good curves rounded edges and thin for them smaller sized hands. Lol... best of luck hope she enjoys it

    I'd say a Droid Charge - it is simple and offers some basic features without being rooted (font changing & screenshots)... the battery life tho will not meet what she has now & will vary greatly by her use...

    Just upgraded my fiance's phone from a SCH-u750 to a DX on Tuesday........ worst decision of my life.

    Giving a hi-tech phone to someone who's completely tech illiterate is a BAD idea. My head hurts.

    This is what I am trying to avoid...My wife isn't totally tech illiterare, but she knows just enough to be dangerous...I have a feeling that within the first week, I will have memorized the Verizon Wireless tech support number...or I will be the poster of the week on the forum for her phone...
