    I am hoping to get a new phone soon, but I have NO clue what phone would be ideal for me. So, I thought if I give you, the brilliant members of this forum, a quick list of what I want in a phone, maybe I could get some recommendations? So, here are the most important features I want in a phone:
    *Gotta have Bluetooth (and not Bluetooth like Verizon)
    *Camera/Video
    *Memory Card Slot
    *SMS/MMS capable
    *Big Screen (@least 176x220) preferred
    *Speakerphone/Pic Caller ID
    *Will allow animations as wallpaper
    *MP3 player would be nice but not vital
    *Totally customizable.... tones, themes, skins, icons, everything
    *Internal Antenna
    *Unlocked
    *Call Screening Capability
    *Compatible with LOTS of games

    The things I don't have any preference about:
    *Style (Flip, Candybar, Slider, etc)
    *Manufacturer
    *CDMA or GSM
    *Voice dialing (wouldn't use much)
    *Flashlight (would never use)

    Am I asking for way too much all in one phone?

    I would say the Motorola e815 has most of what your looking for. Check it out.

    What service provider do you currently have? I see in your profile it says AT&T prepaid, but is that what you plan on using the new phone with? If it is, is AT&T prepaid GSM or CDMA?

    Currently I have AT&T prepaid(GSM), but since Cingular bought them out, they have decided to do away with all "AT&T" service at the end of September. So, I have the option of getting a Cingular Go-Phone, and basically continuing my existing service with some lame changes in prices, or saying screw it and trying to find something new all together. I'm leaning much more towards getting something new.

    Actually, Cingular is changing the name back to AT&T...


    I'd look at T-Mobile. They have great prices, and good phones. The thing that sucks about T-Mobile is their coverage. It's awful. When it works, it works really, really well, but if it doesn't work...it doesn't work.

    Spum-You have the Motorola e815, which is what Ironwalt recommended. What do you think of the phone?

    I love it, but if you don't want Verizon bluetooth, don't get it.

    Right on, thank you. Yeah, everyone in my family has the razr from Verizon, and they were all pretty pissed when they found out that Verizon has crippled all the bluetooth capabilities. And thats one thing that I REALLY want in a new phone, is fully activated bluetooth.
