    I've currently got a BlackBerry Curve 8330 that's acting up a bit. I'm planning on going and exchanging it for another one, but I'm really regretting my decision to go BB, the only reason being that I miss Windows Mobile and how similar it is to Outlook.

    I will straight up buy, or trade +/- cash for a Windows Mobile smartphone for Verizon. I will exchange my BB for a brand new one, and ship it straight to you if we work out a trade. Oh, and did I mention the phone's got to have a full physical QWERTY keyboard. Sprint phones should work as well, but I would prefer a Verizon one as I'm sure it'll be simpler. Ones I would be very interested in:

    • HTC Touch Pro
    • Motorola Q9C
    • Samsung Saga

    Thanks :cool:

    I have an old Verizon Samsung smartphone with Windows Mobile, but I doubt you'd be interested. It's an older model than the ones you listed, but it matches all of your requirements.

    Doesn't have a full keyboard :(

    I do prefer a newer phone anyway. Thanks though!

    My sis has a Moto Q9m, not sure how much different than the Q9c it is, but has had quite a few problems with it randomly stop working to where she need to do a full system reset on the phone. I think had her first replaced because of that and now the 2nd is the same.

    Yeah, the Q9M has a Verizon impregnated OS on it, and it's kinda poopy. My step dad has one. I had a Q9C and it was great. I missed my touch screen, though.

    If you are still looking for one, I have an HTC Touch Pro. But it has a crack in the screen, barely noticeable unless the light hits it a certain way.
    And it has a slightly roughed top right corner from when I dropped it once.
    PM if you are still interested. Just thought I'd offer it.

    Still looking for one guys. Don't need a new one, either.

    I'd take a Samsung Saga as well.

    I might settle for a phone without a physical keyboard or an older phone to hold me out until Verizon releases some new phones. Just let me know what you've got!

    I wouldn't get a Touch Pro from Verizon. Notoriously slower than other versions and the keyboard is set up differently. I would suggest the Samsung Omnia, but it only has a full virtual keyboard.

    TBH, I'm looking for something to hold me out until they release something like the Touch Pro 2.

    I'm aware of the memory crippling and weird changes that Verizon made, but I need something with a newer Windows Mobile to sync properly with Outlook. Thanks for the heads up, though.
