    I'm looking for a new cell phone and I need some suggestions

    here are the requirements i'm looking for :

    - Camera
    - Flip phone or swivel phone
    - color screen
    - mp3 ringtones (not mandatory, but prefferred)
    - external lcd display
    - under $400

    So far I have found the following phones:

    Motorola V710
    Motorola A668
    Motorola V80
    Panasonic x700


    any other suggestions, or which one is the bst out of these?

    V551 is nice.

    For under $400 you can just about get anything.

    do you have a size requirement? the V710 is a pretty bulky phone i think...

    looks wise the moto v80 is the coolest since it has a big lcd display and it swivels (and its all black) but I hate how the moto os's are slow

    ^that link posted above is helpful too

    I just got a Samsung A670 and it's great!

    Only $50 after rebate for new Verizon customers.

    it would be easier, if we knew your phone company.

    K500i, V551 are nice, or you could get a jablotron, it gets great reception.

    DAMNIT! I thought you had T-Mobile cause your V878 or whatever doesn't have 850. Now I am in the same position. I need a new phone but since I have already run the gambit on phones in my head from all the reviews...I have come to the conclusion that all phones suck and I will never be satisfied but I want to get a phone I will be most satisifed with, ugh I dunno. I'm gonna go work on my site.
