Blackberry Bold 9650

This Verizon phone has a full keyboard, a 2.4-inch screen, and a 3.2-megapixel camera. It performed poorly during our test, with frequent dropped calls and lackluster sound quality. Verizon’s international roaming rates start at $1.29 a minute, texts cost 50 cents each, and unlimited e-mail is $65 a month.
cost: $150 with a two-year contract
