    I think my Samsung E700 is finally on the way out unfortunately, so I was just wondering if you guys had any recommendations for a new phone.

    I'm in a similar situation and I'm looking at the iMate Jasjar, iMate k-jam, Nokia 9300i or any small cheap phone & a new PDA.

    Ah the good ol' E700 club :) My e700 has almost given up on me too :(

    My personal favourite is Sony Ericsson K750i, though W800i is very good too(If you ask me.. get a K750i and buy a seperate memory card)

    If you're looking for Nokia phones, try 6230i or the N70.

    If you're looking at Samsung(again), have a look at the Samsung D600.

    Yeah, they're such great phones, I'd be happy to keep it for another few years, but the screen is starting to play up (again) and it's not worth getting it repaired. The D600 looks great and has lots of nice features, if only it wasn't so $$$. I'm not really into Nokia phones (or moto for that matter) they always seem a bit too big for my liking.

    My main concern with phones is the reception, and I am very happy with the reception of my LG phone. It's about 50 times better than my old samsung.

    I have the SE S700i, also a very cool phone, loaded with features! Unfortunately there isn't yet a navigation software for it because of the own interface from SE.

    Now: Sony Ericsson W600i
    If you can wait a few months W810i. like the W800i/K750i except is Quad Band, EDGE, and new key layout.
