What are some of the best phones out there?

I had my iPhone since it came out and I'm starting to get annoyed with it. Do any of you guys have any good suggestions on what phone I should be looking at?

I would preferably like unlocked phones.

I jailbroke it a long time ago but it still is tedious to me. I have the new firmware update and, sure, it's great and all but I just think this phone carries too much of a derogatory persona along with it.

+1 Nothing beats a Blackberry for function. Period. One hand is all you need, email, SMS/MMS, everything done well. And long battery life to boot.

A touch screen is ineffective with a mobile device and only causes the design of the device to be larger than needed.

I am still convinced the iPhone buyers are iPOd users.
I have a bunch of iPODs, and few Macs, etc. Never wanted an iPhone. I think they are for the kids.

I've been using BlackBerry for the past 6 years, mostly because my work issues them to me. I like my Curve alot, but the camera is useless and internet browsing "experience" is far from pleasant. Plus few minor usability quirks. Other than that I like it just fine, however, i just asked my office manager to order me an iPhone instead.

If you decide to keep the iphone you should upgrade to the 2.0 software if you haven't done so already. There are some really cool apps out there, including free ones.

I think for now the iPhone is the best there is.

I am waiting to see how the new blackberry with the huge touchscreen turns out.

Apple really shot themselves in the foot with this one

2.0 basically gives you a brand new iPhone

What was El Jobso thinking?

I don't know about that... I still upgraded to a 3G for the faster data and GPS. Its more like he shot the competitors in the face. Also, people who still hate on the iPhone probably haven't seen or used any of the new apps, the phone is great IMO.
