Multimedia Cell Phones

I Can't Live Without My Cell Phone!

Just about everyone today has a cell phone. Having a wireless phone seems like more of a necessity rather than a want. With so many cell phones on the market, people can use them for work, play or both! However, in this day in age I'm finding that more and more people are using cell phones for work. So much so, that the need of having a multimedia phone is becoming increasingly popular.

Take me for example. I work as a freelancer in the entertainment industry and I need to have constant access to my emails. Having email access on my phone was mainly the reason why I got the new BlackBerry Pearl. I can't haul around a laptop everywhere I go when I need to check or send emails. With my email accounts delivered right to my cell phone (I can have up to 6), I'm alerted immediately and can reply as easy as 1...2...3...and it's great! I don't miss out on job offers or interviews anymore. Not to mention, if I get a call or email for a job interview at the very last minute, I can easily go to the maps section on my cell phone and get directions (I don't have the GPS system in my car yet).

Other Uses For Multimedia Phones
Multimedia phones like the BlackBerry or PDA's are perfect for people who are always on the go, especially for business professionals. I use my multimedia phone for emails, text messaging, maps, weather reports and scheduling. However, you can also use multimedia phones to read Adobe PDF files, Word, Excel, send efaxes, print and more! Just check to see which software is available for your phone.

Now, not everyone will use a multimedia phone for business purposes (you need to have room for play too, you know). With your average cell phone you can easily download games, ringtones and wallpaper. However, with a multimedia phone you can also watch videos, movies and listen to music...and that my friend is very, very cool!

Selecting a Multimedia Phone
Whether you use a multimedia phone for work or for play, they're great to have and loads of fun! Check with various carriers to see which multimedia phones are being offered and select the one that is right for you. With so many carriers trying to compete for your business, big carriers like Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile and AT&T are willing to offer some of the most popular and stylish phones free or hugely discount them with a new wireless plan. Remember, being able to browse the web, check emails, watch videos, etc. are added features. Depending on which phone, plan and carrier you select will determine how much extra you are going and/or willing to pay to have a multimedia phone.
