    Well, the mic (idk, the part that u speak into) on my V551 just broke. it just stopped working, and motorola wont do anything, because my dad didnt get insurance.

    So, i guess i need a new phone. I would say my budget is like 250ish? I dont want to spend a lot, but i'd like a nice phone.
    I've got cingular, and i'm keeping my plan. So, it either needs to be cingular locked, or have unlock codes readily avaible.

    Features i'm looking for...

    Camera
    Qwerty keyboard
    Mp3 player
    easily hacked (what ever, i jsut want to be able to play with it, put stuff on etc)

    I dont need all of those, but one or the other would be sweet. I was considering a Treo 600 (they are on ebay for arround 200ish) i was wondering if i could unlock it, and if its hard?
    I was also considering an LG F9100 (ebay, 130ish), but the lack of features is kinda driving me away. No camera, basic stuff, can only use qwerty in certain apps.

    Please help me OT

    CLIFFS: Need new phone, cingular or easily unlocked, 250 budget

    wow, thanks...

    Do you know of anywhere that sells them alone? it seems like cingular doesnt sell them (without a plan) and i dont need a new plan.

    ah yes the Voq. What a failure, but the price is decent for the features I guess.
