    So I broke my fun W600i and I need a new phone.

    What I'm looking for is:

    1. Wifi - Ideally a phone with wi-fi so that I can access e-mail and such at open access points/walking around my house.

    2. GSM - I have T-Mo so no prob if only tri-band but quad would be great.

    3. No smartphone - that is to say I just don't want a huge screen...I want something that'll fit in my pocket (think E65, not MDA).

    4. Most important PRICE - I'm a student so I'm looking for something under $200 on ebay...this is kind of the dealbreaker because I know I'd be happy with something like an E65 or an M600 but there's nothing at this price point.

    I looked at the Nokia 9500 and 9300 and these are close to the price range but not pretty and they're at the top end of my range but if push comes to shove...

    Also I'm used to SE phones since that's what I've used for like 5 years and I love the interface and I'm used to their quirks. But I'm willing to switch particularly since I can't seem to even find a WIFI capable SE phone.

    So all that said my main concern really is WIFI and price...anything that's WIFI capable and cheaper than $200 on ebay I'm interested in. Thoughts?

    By the looks of things the Nokia 9500 that you say is in your price range although it seems to be going for around prices in the range of $250-$325. For about $250-$300 (by the limited amount of time I had a look at eBay US just now), you could get a Nokia N80. I've honestly never been happier with a phone in my life and it fullfills 1, 2 and 3 of your points and if you could afford the 9500, you could afford the N80. :)
