Siemens S66 On button? (and Samsung SGH-P777)


I'm thinking about upgrading my old Sony Ericsson T306. I liked the phone, but I hated the fact that the NO button turned it on, as it would constantly turn on and waste the battery while it was in my bag (putting it on hold wouldn't help, as I wanted to leave it off, not on). I would solve this by taking out the back of it so it wouldn't turn on, but eventually this broke the back. Now I'm looking for a Cingular (preferably not too expensive) good quality cameraphone that will not have this problem. I like the Samsung SGH-P777, as I think because it is a slider it won't turn on without sliding it. Is this correct? Also, that one seems pretty expensive, so I was looking at the cheaper Siemens S66. Could someone who has it please let me know how the on button works? Is it a dedicated on button like the Nokia's that's not hard to press, or will it go on easily like the Sony, which I didn't like. Also, how do these phones compare? Has anyone used both? Which one has better games (in terms of what comes on it and what you can download)? Is there any fairly small good quality camera phone that wouldn't turn on unintentionally that you would recommend over these? Thanks.
