Cell phone recommendations

So, I want a new cell phone. What are your favorites? I currently have a Motorola V300 which I understand is not even offered by T-Mobile anymore. After researching new phones for the past month I don't even know what is good anymore. Feel free to recommend any type of cell but I tend to like clam shell phones the best. The last time I had an open faced phone I accidently called the emergency number 3 times even though the phone was "locked" I also would love it to have a multi mega-pixel camera on it.

Oh yea, I find the buttons on the Razr are too hard to manipulate with my stubby fingers.

I don't have any recommendations (as I've never had a cell phone... that's right, never!), but thanks for starting this thread because I'm also in the market for one There are so many options, it'd be nice to narrow things down. I was considering the Razr but then a few people told me they're very delicate and break easily

I have a razr, just got it. It's ok but the fact that it is so wide makes it kind of awkward to manage with one hand. I do like all the features on it though!

Yeah and the buttons are indeed kinda weird.. I sometimes end up hitting the wrong key.

So I've concluded that drunk dialing would be a huge mess with the Razr


Not that I do that

That'd be a godsend for drunken text messages

*recalls once message that was meant for icelle but ended up going to a girl I haven't spoken to in years*

Wow! I just got a Razr too.. with Verizon. I really like how it slips into my pocket! But I agree that the buttons are kinda weird. And I sometimes accidentally hit the buttons on the sides!

But overall, I like it! Great design! Great battery life! Great camera & speaker phone!

I hate the Razr. It's way too wide and clunky.

Is the Motorola PEBL available where you are? I like that one.

I have the V360, which is causing me endless problems. The phone itself is excellent, but the battery was fucked and I'm having trouble with Telstra getting the fucking thing as I had it before. Long story, but I'd not not recommend it based on what's happened.

I set up my father's contacts on his Razr (he's old ) I thought it was difficult to navigate, but the screen sure was pretty.

I have an LG vx6000, its pretty simple but reliable.

The Razr and PEBL are nice looking but not all that as phones. I have a V330 (bridge phone between the V300 and V360), which is almost exactly like the 300, but with most of the kinks worked out. Still I don't like how it handles browsing and it's starting to get a bit crotchety. I'm seriously eyeing getting the SDA when I'm eligible for upgrading again.

Remember, the larger the cell phone, the more calls you can make with it.

These little tiny ones are only good for a dozen or so calls, then they stop working.
