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 to see each model offered.
