I don't have a cell phone yet, I'm hoping to find a worthwhile phone/service combination so I can develop some Java based wireless applications.
I'm in the U.S. (Atlanta GA) so I know my options are limited compared to other parts of the world.
What I wanted to know is, are there any carriers and/or cell phones) that you would recommend I use or stay away from?
BTW, I'm not tied to a cell-phone, I'd be happy with a PDA phone like the Treo too - if it's worthwhile. What are your thoughts?

Nextel has a few options for Java enabled phones. I have not used the java phones yet (my wife won't let me buy one yet ), but I am happy with the cell phone service that I receive.

I think the Motorola Accompli is a good cell-phone, I don't know if it works there where you are, but here in Europe it works fine

I've been told that the new Blackberry model is pretty good. I saw it at JavaOne and seem to remember it was a combo PDA/CellPhone (but I could be wrong on that - it's a senior thing). From what they told me, everything on the device with the exception of the VM is written using Java and they do have a developer kit. I have the older model and had tinkered with it but that was a long time before MIDP. I've written a lot of non-networked stuff for the Handspring but standalone stuff is not as much fun as the networked stuff.

The phone looks great! I wonder when will the US market have them? End of the year?
The problem is we don't have carriers for them right? Saw few of the java enable phone at javaone but i dont think they are out for retail yet.
