Hello all!

I've been forced to purchase a new cell phone (My two year old son was practicing his throwing technique with my already ancient blackberry). I'm going to stay with T-Mobile because I've been with them for seven years and they've always taken good care of me.

I would like an Android 4G phone, but I'm having a hard time deciding which phone to buy.

I would love to hear any comments or suggestions that may aid me in my search. I don't have any outrageous needs to consider. I would like it to be a touch phone, but other than that I'm open.

Thanks in advance

I prefer the HTC phones (currently have an Evo)...on TMobile the best 4G Android phone is the G2 in my opinion. The rest of the TMobile selections are inferior hardware wise and the G2 is getting (or already has) Gingerbread 2.3, the latest Android version that some of Tmobile's handsets won't ever get.

The only downside of the G2 for me is that it has the slideout keyboard. Despite this, I've used keyboarded phones before and I just leave it closed anyway.

I had a Blackberry and upgraded to a Hero...Blackberries have been dead to me since. Ditched the Hero for an Evo and I can't believe how useful these phones are. Disarm my home alarm system with it, watch full cable on the go with Slingbox, organize all my work and personal events with Google calendar, access my home server with remote desktop, ditched local radio for Pandora and internet radio shared via bluetooth, use it as my daily alarm clock, sleep during the day using a white noise generator (Lightning Bug app), and read books on the go. The newest version of Android phones have taken over 70% of the time I used to spend on my laptop.

Thanks Danknee,

The Evo sounds great... the white noice machine alone sounds magnificent. I'll have to see if I can get on on my Tmobile plan.
