    Can't they just make a basic flip phone anymore? Everything is touch screen bull shit that breaks. Like what the hell are we suppose to do. I want a phone with a camera. I loved my LG cu 515 til it broke and I treated that phone like crap

    Looks like they have 10 flip phones.

    Though, some of them look worse than the others.

    Then buy one yourself. If you want one of theirs you have to choose from what they offer. They're not the only place you can get a phone.

    Christ dude, AT&T uses GSM. Buy whatever phone you want on eBay and plug your SIM card into it.

    Slider phones and touch screens are the way the industy is leaning right now. Companies such as At&t and Verizon like this b/c slider phones are relatively cheaper to make and cheaper to fix b/c of less breakable parts. Touch screens are just a result of phone companies going more of the multimedia route. Companies don't want to be known for just phones, they want to be known as multimedia companies. Hence the heavy advertising for VCast, Sprints NFL deal, etc... . To achieve this, they need to put phones out there they feel are virtually effortless to get to what you want. It may be a faze of cell phones that may pass, but not likely considering programs like At&t U-Verse and programs of the such.

    palm has been using touch screen technology for a while. but that's not the point i'm making. I'm just saying that everyone I know that has an iphone hates it as a phone. It has a lot of nifty features crammed into it, but it doesn't do any one thing well. The phone portion of it is the worst of it all. It's had the most dropped calls out of any phone on ATT
