How great it is when your current cell phone contract expires, your cell phone starts to misbehave and Consumer Reports reviews cell phones and providers — all in the same month?
As you are probably aware, cell phones are a major part of any real estate agent’s life. I know we survived without them ’cause I remember those days faintly. But now I text, email, take the occasional picture, and — oh yeah — even talk on my cell phone. Via text and email, I successfully negotiated an offer on one of my listings while in we were in Las Vegas in November, with the buyer’s agent here in DC and the seller in Maine.
Anyway, the point of all this is that I need a new phone. My Treo 650 is about to give up the ghost. My contract is up this month and, fortuitously, this month’s issue of Consumer Reports has a feature article on cell phones and cell phone providers. Of course, to read the whole thing online, you have to subscribe, but you can pick up a copy at the newsstand.
With such heavy email and text use, I’m leaning toward the Blackberry Pearl. Any reviews from Pearl owners out there?
