    Hey,
    I'm in the market for a cingular phone. These are my options:
    Samsung D407-free
    Sony Ericsson Z525a-$19.95
    Nokia 6102i-$29.95
    Which has the best UI, and which is the best value?

    I got the Nokia free. It seemed cheap and flimsy to me.

    I returned it and got the Samsung d407 for $29.95. I like it much better.

    Sony Ericsson + Mac + Bluetooth = Heaven.

    Sony Ericsson is awesome in my opinion. Beautiful UI.

    Between a nokia and a SE, pick SE for sure. Overall better phone, although I have seen 100s of people (from my mom to my cousin in Monaco) with the nokia...

    ok, the nokia is out of the picture at this point. is the sony worth $20 extra? bth the SE and samsung are camera flip phones with bluetooth.

    Didn't care so much about the camera as I did the Bluetooth. The Samsung works flawlessly with my Powerbook.

    ordered the d407 online today. it was free with service, which will only be $9.99 with my parents' family plan. call me nuts, but i truly prefered it's interface over the SE Z252's. what an amazing deal:D

    I have had a lot of trouble with SE phones, mostly they had bad signal pickup. Since then, I have had three phones from Nokia, and they have all had fantastic signal reception. The look of the Nokia phones may not be as appealing as the SE, but damn are they good solid phones.

    At the moment I have a Nokia 6585 and I love it. I have had it for two years now, and I wanted to get another one, but unfortunately they are out of production, but I will definitely get another Nokia. That is unless the iPhone comes out and is awesome.
