    Mercury or another?

    I currently have the vitality and am not really very happy with it. I'd really like to buy a new phone when income tax check comes. I don't know if I should go with the new Mercury or if I should get a flashed phone. Some things I'd really like to have are; Camera flash, Front camera, really fast processor, adobe flash capable, newest android os, good battery life. I know this is probably the ultimate dream phone, but hopefully I can find most of these features in a phone. There are probably other features I'd like too that I just can't think of atm. Which phone would you recommend?

    You just described the Mercury (Better battery then you might expect) but..... the latest OS is 4.0 ... not every phone has that. But BIG rumors say the mercury will get it this year so...... you just described the mercury.

    I'm going to go with hardware/firmware issue. I should make an official list of documented problems.
    Please check the forum and post there before PMing me. I have over 674 unread PMs due to the fact that they are issues which should have been addressed here.

    The only reason I'm worried about the Mercury is bc of the 3G issues people are having. I have these same issues with my Vitality and it is VERY frustrating!

    Unhappy

    I started out using the huawei ascend for over a year. got to were i didnt like it anymore lol. been trying to sell it with a few accessories but no progress yet.but 3 or 4 weeks ago i bought a Verizon HTC Merge luckily the seller was nice enough to flash it to cricket for me but it had to be done again. within the 1st day i got it the right corner of the screen cracked.evidentally it took awhile to sink in i believe the seller had it in the heat to long before it got into my hands. i seen her pick it up off her dashboard of her car.well anyways of this situation i ordered a digitizer replacement screen for it on ebay the 1st one i recieved ended up being a defective part but didnt know or realize that until my man already took my phone apart to take old one out to replace with the new. i contacted the sellers about it and they sent another and i sent the defective one back. so this means that my man had to take my merge apart again. but both times it was took apart. we noticed that the motherboard flex cable has alot of scratches on the ribbon part.i have been having alot of different issues with it and it has gotten very frustrating.but 3G and MMS will not work. So i have been trying to find a flashed/unlocked descent keyboard phone were all of the features will work.i love the physical keyboard. Can anybody help me on choosing a physical keyboard phone that is affordable like $100 or less. i am a big time texter lol. any info that any of u can provide me with will be appreciated thank u in advance.have a great day.

    P.S. in a flashed phone i want atleast a 3.5 Touchscreen,Physical Keyboard. were all features will work. i like the look of the AT&T Tilt were the screen tilts up.but AT&T phones cant be flashed to Cricket.

    It is possible for the HTC Evo Shift to fall under 100 dollars, but you would have to get it flashed or flash it yourself. The tutorial is available if you want to try your hand at it...

    Most people probably let them die, but PM me and I will have a dealer look at it.
