    I'm looking to probably get a new phone for Christmas.

    I'm currently with Cingular, and I was planning on getting the MPX200 unlocked off EBay, but the more I look at it, the more I can't justify spending that much on it since it doesn't have a camera like most phones do nowadays. The MPX220 is too expensive however.

    Currently I'm looking between the Sony Ericsson T637 and the Audiovox SMT5600, and if I can't find one I like, I'll end up back on the MPX200.

    Obviously the T637 is cheaper and easier to find, but the SMT5600 is the smartphone that I'm looking for, and has all the features I would like.

    So any input or suggestions on phones?

    Things I'd like in it:

    Camera
    Speakerphone
    Email

    That's pretty much it.

    :)

    I've got the Motorolla V400, pretty nice phone, it has all you want, but I'm not sure how much it runs :dunno:

    I don't think it's free, but you do get quite a bit off of the price.

    once you go bluetooth you never go back. bluetooth will allow you to use a wireless headset, you wont ever have to pick up your phone. you can dial, using voice dial, answer, and adjust the volume with the headset. you can also connect through a computer using bluetooth. that way you can send yourself ringtones and pictures for free. if you are wanting a quality phone, i'd suggest the nokia 6230. we've got it for $149 after rebates and it does everything you could think of. mp3 player, camera, video, bluetooth, 65k color screen, speakerphone, voice dial, EDGE (high speed internet, runs ~200kb/s tethered to a computer, i think) exchangeable memory cards, and a lot of other things.

    i work for cingular so if you've got any questions feel free to aim/pm me

    Yea I was also looking at that phone, but it seemed to be at least $200, which is out of my budget range.

    It also looked sorta large compared to the T637.

    i think its $200 up front then a $50 mail in rebate. yeah its a little bit larger than the 637 but by no means a big phone.

    Hmmmm.

    I really like the T637, but I wish it had speakerphone. :hs:

    The Nokia is nice too, although the screen doesn't look too impressive, it does have all the features I want, although a bit expensive, rebates or not.

    I dunno what to get. :hs:

    What about the Amazon rebates?

    Can I get any of those deals or do I gotta go strictly through Cingular upgrade, or EBay?

    since you already have service i dont know if you can go through anyone other than a cingular store b/c its an upgrade. you can try it, it doesnt hurt

    you'll get that rebate no matter what as long as you buy one of those phones on the list
