    I was not sure how to search for this topic here and I am sure it has been covered before so if there is anyone who can give some advice or links it would be appreciated. I need a phone that can hold up to 500 phone numbers and that the data can be backed up on a PC. Currently using a basic phone: Samsung E316 on old AT&T plan but contract is expiring soon and need to get the right phone. Thinking about going with Verizon but the right phone is more important. Any help would be appreciated.

    Re: Need larger phone number storage and backup...which phone?

    The easiset thing to do is get a phone that supports a memory card. That way you'll be able to store around 256mb worth of contacts (can't think of who would need THIS much space though!). When you need to synchronize with a pc, just wham it into a card reader (not literally of course...) and there you can do wht you like with them. You can usually do it with the supplied data cable too - memory card or no memory card.

    Thanks for that info Mastermind. That seems like the right solution. Any idea which phones I should look at that support memory cards?

    Well how much are you willing to spend? The one I have (K750i) has been reduced to £100 on 02. That has practically everthing you'd want from a phone: 2mp camera, MP3 player, memory card, radio, video, 262K screen, camera flash,video editor, picture editor, ringtone creator, TFT display, tons of battery life, organiser, alarm clock, MMS, MP3 ringtones, 40 voice polyphonic, flashy design ... PHEW! Well that isn't nearly all the features, but as you can see, it's a great phone for the price!

    Wow!!! Does that thing do the dishes too!!?? LOL

    I like all the features but I have to stay within a budget and all I really need is a basic good phone with the memory card so if you have any way I can search for a phone with a memory card I would appreciate it. My only other preference is for it to be a flip phone.
