Thanks

Depends where you will use the phone. In more rural areas, pick a model w/ an external antenna. Remember you can try a phone and return it in exchange for another model (check with the store how long you have) or cancel without contract damages within 30 days.

I noticed that most GSM phones don't have external antennas, especially in the Nokia and Siemans lineup, and select Samsung models. I don't know exactly where the reception comes from on those phones. I like having external antennas on my phones.

All current Motorola, most Samsung, most LG phones, Sony Ericsson Z500a, have external antennas with Cingular. Check out Cingular.com to see each model offered.
