    When were you planning on buying? Looks like you're into flips...I would recommend the Motorola V551 for flip phone. Umm, if you can wait a bit, Sony Ericsson S710a will own. :)

    Well, I already see people around town that are carrying the S710a...I have an S700a for sale but it doesn't have the 850mhz band that all Cingular customers need. So I imagine some Sony Ericsson reps or Cingular testers are using the phone now. It's a sweet little phone. Last I heard from Cingular was end of November, Mid December. But who knows, they keep doing weird stuff. :)

    At the kickoff meeting the ericsson rep was there. He said "before christmas" :rolleyes:

    DO NOT BUY ANYTHING LG related, its crap. you WILL hate it.
    Go with the 551 for the price

    I heard Dec 10-15th for the S710a release. For anything LG...yeah, many people are saying Korean made phones are crap. All over Asia, no one carries a korean made phone.

    i wanted a v600 but since i can't find one from cingular and at&t wireless and t mobile both tell me they dont work here in madison, i'm looking at the v551 and the v400. i'm leaning towards the 551 just because i dont want a boring looking all silver phone live everyone else. anyways, the v551 takes video right? how is it, probably 15 seconds, can you even make out what's going during playback?

    thanks for your help (if you help me)

    I just picked up a v551 yesterday. It does take video but to me, it is pretty shitty compared to my Nokia 3600.

    yeah. it (the V551) does video. the video recording is the only real weakness of the phone as it is quite jumpy.

    I went to the Cingular store today. Inquired about the V400. The salesperson asked my why I would that phone, when the 551 has all the 400 features, and than some more. I played with the 551 interface, and menu's and such. I like that phone. Plus the rubberized blue around the phone, feels like the phone is more sturdier.
