    Hey Guys,
    I was just wondering what phone i should get next, i had the razr but now it is boring, thus i need a new phone any suggestions? My price range is 0-400 dollars and I have already had a voq so...
    What do you think?
    -Jack

    I think i am looking for a smartphone with windows (like voq) and it should be able to play videos, music, etc... also i am cingular(att really) so any phone that takes a sim card is good because i can get it unlocke...

    I'd go with that LG "the v" phone...
    It has expandable memory with mini SD cards...
    Has querty keyboard, camera, and mp3 player capablities...

    You basically could use it like a media player for a fraction of the cost of a blackberry type device.

    I wound up getting a razr v3c, and I cant complain, but the idea that I could have virtually unlimited memory to upload movies and such made me think twice.

    I like the "v" but i believe it is verizon and verizon doesnt have sim cards thus a verizon phone will not work...
    Hey perris what does your phone run for these days?

    it has an expansion slot like other phones people are suggesting, a mini sd, there is a 2 gig card out right now, I couldn't find it and got the 1 gig

    this thing does everything I want, I started a thread on what to do when you get it

    I don't really know the price, sprint gave mine to me, take a look on the internet

    that looks like the same phone as the 6700 with a sleeker design BUT the 6700 has video and 1.3 megapixel camera standard issue, the 8125 the camera is an option and I don't know if it's capable of video at all

    ALSO I think the 6700 is a faster processor, and I know it's designed to be used as a modem but that's in the software, you need to make sure the 8125 has that capability before you invest...that's an important feature


    check out the side by side stats

    btw

    the 6700 goes for about 400 bucks american

    warning, the speaker volume is horrible

    I hate cingular so much...
    I cant access my account because there is a security code i can't remember...
    I know the phone number, name, and social security number on the account and still it is locked!
    AHHHH!!!
    And i need to access my account to see whether or not i can get any deal on a new phone with out new service...
    Do any of you know the deal with ugrading phones? I have the 3000 anytime minute plan...

    And that is Cingular's fault? Did you forget your code? Cingular has the best phones (besides the 700w which Verizon got their hands on first, blah!).

    I'm certain if you contact Cingular Customer Service/Technical Support or go into a store they can reset the code for you.

    It is cingular's fault, there is no reason why i should have to come into the store...

    I mean, im calling from the cell phone, I have the ss#, I have the phone number, address, everything!
    Its not like im robbing a bank
