This is the situation Pit:

I currently own a LG Voyager. Not too long ago, one of the hinges broke so the two parts of the phone are barely held together. I've also been annoyed with the touch screen (unlocking, opening things, etc.). I've been looking into replacements, but due to Verizon's new 'thing' of requiring a monthly data fee, my options are limited. I've looked into the LG Cosmos, Samsung Intensity, and the Samsung Reality (which requires a $10/month fee, but it's the cheapest data plan they have). Both the Cosmos and Intensity have mixed reviews, the Reality seems to have good reviews. The key thing I want is the full QWERTY keyboard, and I like the slide-out keyboard compared to my current flip keyboard. However, if I get either the Cosmos or Intensity, it seems like I'll be downgrading from what I have. So I turn to the Pit, hoping some of you have used some of these products or have some helpful info that will make my decision easier. Should I repair my current phone, use my renewal to get a Cosmos or Intensity for basically free, or deal with the monthly data fee and get the Reality? (the phone should be covered by my renewal as well)

[If you have a better suggestion, feel free to say something, so long as it's actually helpful - not "Verizon SUCKS" or "DOOD MY PHONE IS TEH AWESOME, THOSE SUX!" I know how the Pit can be.]

Links to each phone:

LG Cosmos
Samsung Intensity
Samsung Reality

Let me know if there are issues with the links, sometimes the Verizon website can be "special."


Edit:
I'll repeat this for the people that miss it: I'm trying to AVOID any phone that requires an expensive data plan (which is basically any smartphone).

I have a reality, and its a great phone, however, make sure you get a good case or holster for it. I usually just throw it in my pocket, and it gets dinged up pretty easily. Its a good overall phone, just the front screen is extremely susceptible to nicks and scratches

This.

If you don't like it that much I would also consider looking at the 3210.

well i live in canada and i bought a iphone not too long ago since my ipod broke and my phone was a pos, it seemed like a good idea, which it was. The fact that i only pay 10 bucks more a month than the massive plastic thing that can't do anything very well was pretty surprising, though i'm on a contract with it. I think i paid 250 for the phone and it's 60 bucks a month, and considering i was going to have to buy a new ipod anyways i think it was a good deal, there pretty wicked phones

Unfortunately, neither one of those phones are available through Verizon (or at least it's not listed on their site).

Not quite sure what you're trying to say, but anything that includes the iPhone isn't happening. For one, Verizon won't have the option of the iPhone until January (from what I've heard). Not to mention they're expensive and I don't want to pay for an expensive data plan.

Beh, it's just your phone.

Personally I'd just assume shitcan the cellphone as the single worst invention since the hydrogen bomb.

At least the H-Bomb brought people together. (in bunkers and such)

I have the samsung reality. Just got it last week. The price is low, build is solid, and has an awesome screen.

It's hands down the Reality out of that selection. That's one of the most successful phones out right now that isn't a droid.

As annoying as they can be, I rely on my cell a lot. It's my only source for calling when at college and I text a lot (I usually wake up to 2-3 texts and it just goes from there). So I put importance on finding a good phone.

Anyway, I don't see how you possibly can downgrade from a Voyager. I have one, and it's absolutely terrible. I'd recommend the Droid X, but you don't want to pay for the expensive data plan. Out of those, I'd get the Reality. I'll never buy another LG phone again. Every one I've used has been garbage.

Not sure what's so funny

but the Voyager is starting to get annoying. It would be nice to get a Droid but I can't afford $30/month for a data plan. $10/month for the Reality is pushing it, but it's the lesser of two evils.

my cosmos rocks. the only thing I don't like about it is that the vibrate is pretty weak. I have to turn on my ringer if I'm expecting a call.

I'm not sure what I have (and my phone is ATT, so I don't know if it's even an option) but I don't have to pay a data plan. I think it's the recent upgrade of the Samsung Blackjack. It's chrome, and is basically a blackjack except the keyboard slides in and out. It's worth looking into if you can get it at all.

How long have you had it?
Any issues with buttons not working/falling off? (or other issues you've encountered so far)

I've only had it for a month or so though. I can tell some of the buttons are kinda loosely connected, but I'm not a super hard texter. If you get the really inclusive warranty, it would be covered. the thing is, with the price of that warranty, you could just get a data plan and get a bit better of a phone.
