Need some help on a buying decision

So, I am currently using the Vogue/XV6900. I would like to make an upgrade. I am looking at the Touch Pro. My main motivation for wanting to upgrade is to improve my browsing experience. I understand the touch pro has the same size screen, but double the resolution. Does this extra resolution significantly improve the browsing experience?

Re: Need some help on a buying decision

yes it greatly impacts it positively. Text on webpages is much clearer, pictures are sharper, and the higher resolution allows you to view more things on the screen.

Re: Need some help on a buying decision

i wouldn't say it makes for a better experience but it does make everything look a lot nicer. if you're looking for an improved experience you're going to want to look at the software you're using whether it be Opera, IE, or Skyfire. the touch pro ships with Opera on board but if you want flash you'll need to download skyfire as well, when i had my TP i used both depending on what i was doing. as far as the hardware, the TP has a slightly faster processor and by far more ram than the Vogue so everything would run quicker as opposed to just upgrading the software on your Vogue and the physical keyboard as well makes things nice and it an easier way to get to landscape . So the TP will definitely lend itself to a better browsing experience

Re: Need some help on a buying decision

I appreciate the input. I wasn't even thinking about the processor and RAM affecting the browsing experience. Looks like its time to start hunting for a deal on ebay.

huge difference, make sure to get an alltel, us cellular, or sprint touch pro, has more ram then the verizon version.

Really? I thought users were having VERY difficult times getting non-Verizon phones activated on Verizon.

I suggest you get an Alltel touch pro. I have one right now and activation to verizon was extremely simple. i just took it in to the store and they spent a couple minutes with it. DONT get the verizon touch pro. I tested it out and it is DEAD SLOW.

Re: Need some help on a buying decision

I don't know, I read this thread about a gentleman spending 3 months trying to get an Alltel TP onto the Verizon network with no luck...

Alltel Touch Pro to Verizon, please help.

Also, I have a grandfathered in account from the days of Airtouch...its such a great deal I would not risk calling them up or going into a store and bringing it to their attention, I want a phone I can just activate on their website.
