So, I got my first "real" phone yesterday, the Samsung Galaxy Gio. A fairly new phone, as they don't have any accessories (read: case) for it.
I ended up going with Virgin Mobile, even though the rest of my family is with Koodo. The reason? Koodo has an extremely limited selection of phones, and only two Android phones, which is what I really wanted (and got). Both are old, the LG Optimus One and the Samsung Nexus S "by Google" (well, duh, who else is going to make Android?). So, after exploring my options, I went with Virgin, though I didn't get a data plan (the plan - and phone I was originally looking at, the Samsung Galaxy S, were too expensive).
