Basic CDMA Cell Phone; but not too basic

by zyarc / October 19, 2006 7:23 PM PDT

Greetings. I currently have a motorola v325 cell phone which I really like. The phone feels real solid not like it's gonna break in my hands like other phone feel. I like the tactile, soft-coated feel of it I don't mind the monochrome outer screen especially since the LCD is inverted (white text on black background). Overall the phone looks and feels great. Functionality wise it does what I need it to as a phone but lacks pretty much every other way. I am looking to upgrade but want to keep the same small, preferably flip/clamshell style. And I don't want to get stuck with a cheap ''kids toy'' of a phone. The problem is all the phones I've looked at that meat my criteria are GSM only and my service is CDMA.

Here's what I'm looking for in an upgrade:

?Basic, realitively small flip-style phone similar to the v325.
?I don't really care if it has a camera or not but if it does it needs to be a good camera not a useless afterthought. Preferably 1.3MP or higher.
?I'd also like to have the bluetooth feature
?Needs to support CDMA networks
?Has a decent battery life

Bottomline, I'm looking primarily for a cell phone, not a mediaplayer or super-high resolution camera, but I would like bluetooth capability.

If you have any suggestions please share them, thanks for your time.
