Best AT&T basic phone

by g239b / February 5, 2008 1:24 AM PST

I am looking for a phone that: 1) is reliable; 2) has good sound quality/volume; 3) strong reception qualities (antenna); 4) has standard & reliable ear jack, USB and power.

The phone can be bulky, heck don't need any colors on the screen, video, music or any of the other junk. I do not mind having all this other junk if I have no other option but I am not going to use it anyways.

I just want a cell phone that works really well as a phone.

What do you recommend? ... on AT&T

I need a recommendation, too; a phone that works well as a phone, with Bluetooth, on Verizon. I don't need a camera, music, or e-mail but I would like ease of use and great call quality!

i would recommend the Motorola W385, Motorola KRZR, or the Samsung SCH-u410

but i would personally get the KRZR because of its sleekness and simplicity, and it also has many features.
