    He likes the LG CE500 the most but he doesn't know were he can buy it? It is not listed on cinguler.com....

    How much does he want to spend?
    What features do he want on his phone?
    Does he want a flip phone?

    If your cousin likes that LG you can easily find it on E-Bay or a place like the one from the link.

    I would go with the Motorola V557 before I even thought about touching an LG.

    without having supported that comment as to why, that's more of a personal preference, i've used LG phones in the past with no problems.

    He is willing to go about 80-100$. Yes he does wan't a flip phone he thinks the LG Ce500 is ok but he is starting to change his mind a little he wants to get a phone a bit simular to the i850 or i870 for nextel if Cingular carries any phones that are anything simular to those two.

    It's going to hard to find a nice phone under 100. For non-flip phone motorola L6 is nice but it's around 180 now. He can probably get it for free if he opens a line with 2 year contract for cingular though

    My apologies, I forgot to elaborate..... lack of sleep will do that to you. It seems to me that Motorola is more user friendly than LG handsdown. Plus LG first started making CDMA phones & then expanded into the GSM Market. Therefore their speciality, IMO, is CDMA & therefore their GSM phones aren't totally up to par.

    That i agree with, LG does not have a good track record with their GSM division, but you'd be surprised how much they have improved.....
    good answer Binx..

    an lg rep once told me that they have trouble with the sim technology. actually, they blamed the card manufacturers, but to me it's funny that other cell mfgs can make the cards work.

    Here's the deal. It will be nearly impossible to find a good deal ($80-100) on a phone without signing a new contract. Once you are locked in to a contract and you can't just re-sign for whatever reason, your best bet is eBay. Just find a phone that you like that is GSM and look for it on eBay. The easiest thing to do is buy an unlocked phone.
