Good all round phone

Can anyone give me a good idea on a decent reliable phone. I just want one with a good size phone memory, WIFI, bluetooth, good keyboard. I've been looking at BlackBerry's, iPhone's plus some LG ones. I really would like some opinions, thanks

This is a phone for an idiot who can't keep it dry - like putting it in a polythene bag when you're off-roading and need to winch out to a tree. Only an idiot would buy it.

lol, uh huh, well I've got a small stack of phones with smashed faceplates and ones that ended up as useless 'cause they didn't get reception at the shop. The waterproof is a bonus compared to the drop proof good reception aspects. And frankly, I don't care if I can surf the web on my phone, I have a computer for that.

Rhett you will always be a phone whore. Thanks guys, gives some insight. Junior interesting phone, as I'm just as lucky with my phone being dropped (no disassembly required, impact disassembly works every time), submerged (on more than one occasion I might add and the bloody thing still works), sat on (lost count). It is a tough enough phone but I really do want something new.

ya man, I find lifting shit too I'll crush it, carrying a motor, set it down on my leg to open the door, feel a crunch and know that I'm into another $40 to fix the stupid faceplate. And ya, impact disassembly has become fairly standard.

Obviously I'm biased towards Blackberrys but I wouldnt mind switching over to a Droid after having seen what they can do. However - I pick my phones less for their "phone" abilities, and more for their extra features: web access, screen size, mobile media, etc. Which is why I still have the Storm. Based on the criteria you listed above, my suggestion would be a Blackberry Curve 8530 (if you can use it with your provider - I have Verizon) It's got everything you listed and then some:

Physical Keyboard
2.0 Megapixel Camera
Trackpad Navigation
microSD™ Memory Expansion Slot (up to 16GB)
Premium HTML Web Browser
Bluetooth® Stereo Support*
Wi–Fi Ready
GPS


The camera could be better on this one, but other than that its a decent reliable phone. I had the previous model (8330) and loved it. In fact I passed it on to my wife and she still uses it. The 8530 seems to have improved on an already good model.

Something I just found from my G1:

GPS directions via Google Maps.

Not like I really need it. But, cool none the less. Now I don't have to buy a GPS or feel like a tech flunky when someone gives me that stupid look when I tell them I don't have a TomTom GPS or other similar device.
