I'm going to be getting a new cell phone soon (I have Verizon in the US). I have the following choices (all of which are the free or inexpensive w/ 2year contract phones): (I have eliminated phones in italic) LG Chocolate (Newer version is $60) MotoKRZR (RAZR is better - much bigger screen) MotoSLVR (only mediocre, iTunes functionality disabled w/ Verizon) MotoRAZR Nokia 6215i (Verizon's Nokias are rebranded Pantechs, I checked into it) Nokia 6315i (Verizon's Nokias are rebranded Pantechs, I checked into it) Samsung SCH-u340 (Samsungs supposedly aren't that great) Samsung SCH-u540 (Samsungs supposedly aren't that great) I assume the color of the phone's case doesn't affect functionality. (proven wrong, see post #6 below) Of course, there are the normal options like Blackberrys and Treos, but I'd be paying for features I don't need (I have an iBook for mobile MSOffice and checking email, and an iPod for music and videos...). I am looking for a phone that has excellent call quality and signal reception above all. (that IS what a phone is for, right?) Bluetooth would be nice as well. I'd like to be able to have custom ringtones (not polyphonic, real music ringtones) - if I could transfer them from my computer, that would be awesome, cuz it costs less ($2.99 for a ringtone is kinda expensive). Other than music ringtones, music playback doesn't matter to me (most of my songs have iTS DRM) because that's what my iPod is for. Same thing applies with video. I'd prefer a color screen (I think all of these phones have color screens). Finally, looks don't really matter to me - again, this is a PHONE, I will be using it to make CALLS. For instance, I know the RAZR is popular, but does it have good call quality? Signal reception? Edit: I am now considering the Treo 700p, due to comments posted.
