What Cell phone do you have?

Just curious what cell phones do you guys own? I just bought a new Motorola C350 few weeks ago and I am enjoying it alot.

I was going to get the Motorola V60 which is the phone that comes with new Benz's but this one was free with a plan and has colour screen and polyphonic sound.

I've used a V60 for several years now and find it easy to use. However, my next phone will be one with a color screen if for no other reason than to keep up with the Jones'. My choice: SonyEricsson T610, as it seems to be pretty easy to use and has all the 'necessary' features, like a camera haha

I used to use a Nokia 5110, god I hated that thing. Though gaffa tape always fixed it. I bought a second hand Ericsson T28 last month, I'm having no issues what so ever. I'm all into technology and all, but I don't see the need for a colour screen on a phone. Just makes me think it;ll have less battery time

I have a no frills Nokia 1260 for work and an Audiovox CDM-8300 as a personal phone. The Audiovox has nice features like a built-in speaker phone but sometimes the battery runs down or is displayed to have run down after a couple of days on standby.

I have some Nokia with a color screen. Came with a plan from cingular. Both the plan and the phone are a complete waste of money.

In the SE I have a built in Audiovox phone (Verizon plan). I'm talkin' old school! But it works great, and gets reception anywhere. And as a bonus, it just screams 80's luxury

Older tri-mode startac that I can re-program for analog only.

Looks like this:

Still have lots of batts for it leftover from the analog startac 6500 I had for a few years, all the chargers and accessories. Guess I like older stuff that works well, is tough, has more power, etc.

The newer phones have nifty stuff, but after a few weeks it's just "stuff" and it's the core that matters.

Would a V60 be better than the C350 that I now have?

I like the V60 because its the phone that comes with Benz's but it doesnt have color screen and polyphonic sound and looks a bit behind the time already.

What do you all think?

Sony Ericsson T68i

Good talktime and standby times, in a compact package. Love the connectivity of bluetooth in addition to standard IR.

However, the newer T610 has more features without sacrificing talktimes, but is just a little bulkier.

I also have a V60. I recently upgraded from a Motorola Timeport and I like the reliability of Motorola and the metal case.
