    Cell Phone Recommendations

    Time to get a new cell phone, and I'm lookin for suggestions of what people here use and are happy/unhappy with. Ive got cingular service, and am currently leaning towards the Motorola V551. Ideally I dont want to spend too much more than that ( somewhere around $100 after rebates and whatnot...) So anything you guys have to offer would be appreciated.

    I have the nokia 6230 and it is great. The v551 is a cool phone, too, but I have now become weary of motorolas. They seem to take forever to charge, and have weaker signals a lot of times. Check out Phonescoop.com for good descriptions.

    I have had a lot of good phones:

    Motorola V300
    Samsung E317
    Motorola V551 - Bluetooth
    Nokia 6230B - Bluetooth
    Motorola MPx220 - Bluetooth (Use currently)
    Sony Ericsson T610/616 - Bluetooth
    Sony Ericsson Z600 - Bluetooth

    All of these have been very good.

    Peace,

    I also tried out the MPX220, and the nokia communicator... didnt like either. The communicator looked and felt like a BRICK, but looked good open. but purely as a phone it looked like CR#@#$@#P
