I’m out of work until Monday, when I start the new job. When I left Nokia I had to turn in my phone, and since I hadn’t been carrying a personal phone, instead relying on the company supplied one, I was feeling a little disconnected. I stopped by the local Verizon store and got myself a personal phone and plan. Anyone who wants the new number should just e-mail me.
I decided to go with a Motorola RAZR V3. It’s a lot smaller than the Nokia Communicator I had been carrying and that’s fine with me. I like the size and form factor. There’s going to be a learning curve because I’ve been so used to Nokia’s phones, but that’s no big deal. The nice thing was that getting my phonebook updated was completely painless. The Mac’s iSync application has native support for the RAZR so it really was no more than connecting the phone, configuring iSync, and clicking sync.
Sound quality is good, I’ve got vibrating alerts again, and I’ve even gotten my ringtones moved over.
