advise me on a good phone for a geek...

guys, I'm thinking on dropping my old phone, and get a smartphone, but I would like something I could modify like installing network application etc or even a whole OS... I went to the local Bestbuy but the guy didn't even know what OS was running on some of the phones.... what would you guys recommend me?
