Hi! As my time to research a new phone has been limited, it has taken me 2 years to figure out which phone would be best. Obviously in that time, more options became available... lol, I know it sounds crazy to have taken so long, but since my current phone never had any issues, a new phone was low on my priority list. I'm currently using an orange LG enV. Only recently has it started to have problems, but holy cow! Recently, nearly everyday something else isn't working on it. So now a new phone is a very high priority. I've been to a few Verizon stores, read reviews, poured over the forums, fondled tons of friend's phones... I'm still lost. Originally, I wanted the X because of the large screen. However, now I am clueless. I'd like to go with a newer model, but don't know which one. My use is based on: 30% geek (can I tweak it?), 25% nerd (can I play on it?), 30% mom/female (long nails & love convenience & durability), 10% old fashioned (thicker phones I can hold on my shoulder without getting a stiff neck and not having to using an earpiece), and 5% everything else (whatever that is). I'll keep reading and touching the phones, but any direction you have to offer would be very appreciated. Thanks for the forum and the assist!
