What cell phone are you currently sporting/sweating?

Thought it would be good to start a thread about cell phones you are currently using and ones you are looking to get. Every time I am looking for a new phone, I am looking for ideas from others.

Current:
SE T637

I LOVED this phone. Had it for 2+ years on the day Cingular stocked it. Reception was GREAT. UI was fast.

Camera stunk but what VGA didnt?

No music options.

Future:
Just bought the SE w810i from eBay for $320 shipped. I waited 2 months for Cingular to carry it. They never did. I lost my patience.

Hopefully the same phone quality as my last.
Similar size as my 637
2mp camera
2gb Memory Stick duo
Walkman phone
FM Radio
Edge



I dont think any company is at the point of replacing phone/mp3 player/camera into one device, but this is a bridge to get me there.

What are you sportin', sport?

After dumping the Treo 650 after a year in agony, I have a blck razr right now.
I like the size of it. I will probably have to get a blackberry soon for company purposes though.

Sony Ericsson z520a.
It makes calls, has speakerphone, and takes pictures.
I have an ipod for music, and don't need a PDA/blackberry, though if my work required me to have one, or offered me one on their dime, i'd take it. They did give me a twoway pager, I got tired of carrying it for the little use I got out of it.

Motorola V330. Bluetooth and camera are the only extra features I need on a phone.

Plays divx pretty well too.

LG-VX800 with Verizon. Had it for about a year and love it.

Has a nice 1.3 megapixel camera, can play some decent games, has a music and video player feature though I've never used it.

I honestly don't use my phone for much more than talking, the occasional text message, to take the occasional pic when I don't have a camera and to play a bit of Tetris or Pac-man when waiting somewhere etc., so I don't need a super fancy phone (i.e. blackberry etc.).

Just got the Fusic from Sprint this past weekend. A kickass phone. Does alot of the things I wished my other phone (Samsung A680) did. I'm still tweaking the phone to get it to my liking.

I love this phone!!!!

It has a great speakerphone and it can read your messages/e-mails to you and say the name of the person calling or sending a message to you. I don't think I'll ever get a phone that doesn't have a QWERTY keyboard after having this one. The keyboard makes Texting a lot easier. It has a slot for a Mini SD card and can do music.

Razr. Great phone and all I want it for is the phone features. I really don't like the all in one phones. Just give me small and durable.

Have you seen the new MotoSlim ? I think this is the "next generation" of Razr.

There is also MotoSleek

Ditto, plus it does MP3 ringtones and has BT, so you don't have to buy ringtones. I'm currently sporting an Airwolf theme

I'm still using the Motorola i730 from Nextel. My contract runs out in May of next year. I'd like to get that slim Samsung that Sprint is offering.

On the Z520a, I like the fact that there's an antenna, but it's not a 'nub' or replaceable one. My last work-provided phone, a Motorola Startac, I went through three or four antennae.
I don't use the BT, but we bought a car charger/usb cable combo off ebay so that's how I transfer things to and from it [plus my computers aren't BT].

and how does one 'sweat' a phone? Am I not up on the lingo?

SoSpacey - That is the exact same phone I am waiting for Cingular to carry. i wish they would hurry up. How hard was it to buy it online and get it to hook up on Cingular?

I bought it off eBay. Bought it on Friday and had it on Monday. $320 shipped priority mail.

It was unlocked. All I did was transfer my numbers to my sim card, take out the Sim, put it in the new phone and I was rolling.


This phone is awesome so far. Great reception, The camera takes great pix at 2mp. The UI is fast. And the software from Sony for transferring files etc. is great.

My one problem is that my Acura TL has bluetooth built in but it does not work with this phone.

It pairs with it but doesnt allow me to hear or talk on it.

I dont know if I should return the phone and get one that works with my car. Its an Acura problem as they have to update some type of firmware.

So do all phones have a SIM card? I am using a small Nokia candy bar phone now. It was cheap at $20 bucks.
