    Best phone from Cingular that is compatible with PhonCo?

    I currently have a MPX220 (sweet phone but doesn't work with PhonCo).. I may have the oppurtunity to get a new phone but I'm not sure which one to get. Which of these phones (zip code 44512) is the best choice?

    If someone could take the time to look at that I would GREATLY appreciate it.

    Thanks

    Check out this link, it may help. Seems like the SonyEricson units have the most compatibility. Otherwise, you gotta pick and choose what you want.

    I guess you may need to define "COMPATIBLE" THe Razr, and most Motorolas, can not use several features of PhoCo, while other non Motorola phones seem to be able to utilize most if not all of the features. To some, the Motorolas are not compoletely compatible, to others, they are sufficiently compatible.

    I will say however, that the Black Razr is the sexiest phone I have seen, EVAR. If it wasn't for my professionally installed car kit for my V600, I would get one in a hearbeat. Still might. We'll see.

    Looks like the only phones listed on his site that Cingular carries are:

    Moto Razor V3 - BT - ME,SM - Send SMS, Receive SMS - Battery Status - Signal Quality

    Nokia 6230 - BT - SM - Send SMS, Receive SMS - Battery Status - Signal Quality - Network

    AND THAT'S IT!?!?! WTH!?

    A lot of the phones Cingular carries are CLOSE to the model numbers listed on Zorro's site but does that mean that they'll work??

    For example:

    Cingular SonyEricson S710 / Zorro SonyEricsson S700i
    Cingular Siemens S66 / Zorro Siemens S65
    Cingular Nokia 6620 / Zorro Nokia 6610

    I just bought the Siemens S66 last month, and everything appears to be working with PhoneControl.

    The S65 is the European model of this phone. Just use this configuration:

    Most likely they will work. Often times, the Manufacturers produce a single "model" of phone with very similar features, and the same hadware, but the features are customized for the particular carrier, although sometimes the difference in model number is because one is say, GSM, and the Other CDMA or something like that.

    If you go to the SonyEricson website, you might be able to determine what, if any, are the differences between the phones.
