    Need to get a new cellphone

    I'm getting a new phone in the next couple of days. Does anyone have any recommendations as to what phone/features to get. I still need to buy some stuff for my carputer so the phone can't be too pricey (don't want/need anymore financial setbacks to the project). I want to be able to hook the phone to the comp for internet, but I don't know whether that should be by bluetooth, usb or what. Anyways any opinions you guys have would be greatly appreciated.

    BTW I have T-Mobile

    How willing are you to switch providers? Because AT&T has the Nokia 6820 (the fold-open keyboard phone). It's like the 6800, only improved with tri-band (you can use it anywhere in the world), a camera, infrared, and Bluetooth. If you're a student, you can get it for half-price with service, so around 75 bucks. If you're willing to sign a 2-yr contract, you can have it for 50. Keep in mind, AT&T will become Cingular within a year or so.

    I have a sony ericsson t68i for sale. Works great with phone control and bluetooth! It is unlocked and will work with t-mobile. Check out this thread for more details:

    FS: Sony Ericsson T68i gsm Phone (bluetooth)

    It is posted by kessler because I bought it from him but then I realized that it won't work in my area with cingular wireless.

    I would prefer not to get a used phone. Especially since you already have had problems using it in your area. I don't want to be stuck with a phone I can't use. I'd rather shell out a little more cash and get a new one + peace of mind. Thanks though.
