    Cell Phone Advice

    Getting a new cell phone in a week or so and I was wondering if there are any cell phones that are "sports bettor friendly." Anybody have a cell phone that gets them lines, news, etc? If so, what models are the best for this type of thing? I have heard good things about the Treo 650. Is there anything that is more cost efficient? Any help appreciated.

    i'm not into the cell phone stuff to be honest with ya sorry. but, when you do get a new one, make sure your put on the new no call list because, there about to pass a new law that will allow telemarketers to call cell phone numbers.

    I have the treo600 and you can go on webpages that have the lines and these forums. Yes everything can be bunched up, because the screen is so small.

    What is the best non android phone for att/tmobile other than the iPhone?

    I don't need data working for me all the time whether I use it or not. Thanks. I still want to surf the web through wifi, touchscreen, camera, just not never ending data usage. Thanks.

    if ur a regular user than yes... they're both competitive...

    i myself am a power user, the iphone just cannot match up.


    only thing fancy about it is maybe the "retina" display , facetime and other crap.
    oh and yea "if you dont have an iphone, you dont have an iphone"

    Any one of the latest smart phones will give you what ya need in terms of capabilities when it comes to checking on odds, lines, scores, ect. An iphone or blackberry should get the job done for sure.

    I agree with brocker here I traded my iphone for the evo on sprint and its been amazing, tons of sport scores apps though either way and both phones support full web browsers for putting in your bets
