Welcome to my first post here, I will be getting active soon as I am finally getting rid of this damn Blackberry 9900! Keep in mind, I am just posting a bunch of phones. BUT ALSO, THIS PHONE I GET, MUST LAST ME THE 3 YEAR CONTRACT! Or atleast 2. So, here is what I want in a phone. - A long Battery Life. - Fast and good with internet, facebook etc, - Won't "die"/slow down after the first year of normal use. - I do NOT plan on rooting, maybe once I get comfortable but for now, NO. - I do not mind big screens at all, but I need a good case available for it, as I DO tend to drop it while biking. - I DO use multitasking a lot, going from facebook to youtube to twitter and browsing internet and messages etc, that will mean a lot to me in a phone! Here are the options, I want to keep it under $150, But if you think I NEED the S4 for $229, I guess I can do it. QUIT OBVIOUSLY blackberrys are off the table, and so are windows phones, and iphones is a whole other issue.
