If you sign the contract, they will probably give you a phone. The last one Verizon gave me was a Motorola Rival. I had asked for something "basic". Just talk was all I was interested in. Well......I'm here to tell ye....this one does everything but dance a jig....Oops, excuse me, it DOES dance a jig.
E-mail, Internet, music, pictures, video, text, some kinda messaging, I dunno what all ... . It has a slide out thingy with keyboard. Lots more than I want or need. Upside, is you don't have to subscribe to all those things. Be careful....accidentally touching one of those very-very touchy buttons can subscribe you to expensive 'stuff' you might not want to pay for. We are in a new world.
