What is your mobile phone, if you have one, and why did you choose that one? I put this here because..it's technology and even though it's a poll, it is still fitting for here (there are polls here too.) Also, I could find nothing about this (in here, or OVP.)

So, do you have a mobile phone? If so, what is it?

I might confuse some people here so read carefully.
Right now at this moment I have a Sony Ericsson W995http://hotcellularphone.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/sony-ericsson-w995-hikaru-walkmanphone-goes-live.jpg
I bought it for some of the simplest reasons:
1. Its an SE. I trust those things more then anything
2. I cannot stand Symbian on Nokia's phones.
3. Build quality. You will not find this elsewhere.
4. Sound. Best stereo speakers on a phone in ages. Clearbass makes things perfect.
5. The Camera. Its a slight tad worse then the C905 but it doesn't ,mean its horrible. Strangely enough though the video capturing is better.
6. The screen is the largest on an A200 SE. 2.6 whopping inches.
7. The kickstand. Most Useful. Phone. Appendadge.
8. They freaking finally put a 3.5MM jack in their walkman flagship.

I use it for texting and that's about it, it really sucks. It cost 10 dollars though..brand new.

Then my brother gave me his old Blackberry 7520. I still need a sim card for it, but once I get it I can get on AIM and use it completely for free which I think is very nice.

Basically does everything a Blackberry normally does. However, it has no camera. Also I cant text, but I can get around that and text to mobile phones through AIM.

I have a Motorola C550 on my desk but I don't consider it mine and I never use it.

I should get a phone that's mine and that I know how to use though. I want something like a Nokia 2110 because I hate everything modern phones have become.

I have one of these; and after having an iPhone too, it's no way near on par with the iPhone! They are in completely different markets.

There is so many things the 5800 misses, or does wrong. Mine currently likes to randomly wipe the call history! Also, the music player has problems reading random tags; instead I just have a load of 'Unknown Music'. Every other Mp3 player on the planet has no troubles at all!

The email client is dire, although I do quite like the onscreen alphanumberic T9 pad. I missed T9 when I had the iPhone!

Nokia N78. I chose it because it has got a nice camera (3.2 megapixels) and because I've used Nokias all my life and got used to Symbian. Also I like its look.

When you said "Symbian OS" you made it clear that it's not on par with an iPhone.

And yes, I have an iPhone. 3G, black, 8GB.

My phone is pro. It looks something like this. Ph33r:

But in all seriousness, I've never really had the need for a cell phone. One reason I don't like them is that I don't like people to be able to call me no matter where I'm at. I prefer to be isolated sometimes. However, if I were to get one, I'd probably just get the cheapest, most durable thing I could find. I generally have my laptop hand, so it's not like I need any extra functionality (though I suppose it does take a few seconds to get out and set up).

I've got a Nokia E71 and have absolutely no intentions of changing anytime soon. (which is good, as an upgrade will set me back a few dollars) It's just great. The tweaked Symbian OS is logical, intuitive and responsive. (If you've had bad experiences in the past, don't hold a grudge) It does everything I need and the qwerty keyboard makes typing easy. I'm basically touchtyping on it by now.

I'm not saying it's better or worse than the iPhone, as it's a different product intended for a different market. That said - I would much prefer to stick with this than change to an iPhone. I don't need to pop virtual bubble wrap to be perfectly honest. Plus touchscreens annoy the hell out of me. :D

I've changed from the default theme to something a little more vibrant, though.

Nokia 6234
I've had it for two years now and mine's got a lot of scratches all over it. :<
But I quite like the Nokia interface, so I probably won't change until it breaks or I win a phone. XD Besides, mine's got a way sexier theme than the silly looking default one.

Yeah, I know that phone is so Ziraider! I mean really? Who would buy such a Ziraider phone?

*replies to a future question that will be asked..i.e. "Why are you saying that?"*

Do you realize what you say when you say something is "gay"? Knock it off.

The phone I am getting soon is a Sony Ericsson W350 - GoPhone (http://www.wireless.att.com/cell-phone-service/cell-phone-details/?device=Sony+Ericsson+W350+-+White+%28Refurb%29+-+GoPhone%C2%AE+-+Prepaid&q_sku=sku3820279). It's a really good phone for that price, I want it. If you're too lazy to click, here is a picture:

Worst mistake I ever made in my life. If I was being attacked by a serial killer and needed to call someone and this phone was the only thing I had access to, I would probably end up calling "pizza hut" instead of "police" because the touch screen is just that horrible.
