A post on the USMA subforum reminded me that I'm actively looking at getting new cell phones for myself and two oldest children. My contract w/ ATT expired but unfortunately, the two sons' contracts (ATT family plan) expire later this year or early next year. Because I babied my Sony Erickson until the screen suddenly went blank I have been out of the loop on cellphone evolution since 2006. I'd like to go with the Sprint Instinct but I've heard that it's not great, no WiFi and the screen is a bit smaller. My husband has the Blackberry but it's the most expensive option. I really like the user ease of the iPhone but I'm wondering if it's overpriced and overhyped. I'd appreciate anyone's feedback on any of these three phone options. I'm also wondering how many parents have given these kinds of phones to their children.
