What is a good non-att cell with slide out keyboard?

Hi All,

Please suggest some descent non-att gsm cell phone, unlocked with a slide out keyboard that is a touchscreen. My budget is 200.

It is hard to choose because I prefer the ones with low SAR, but the ones I saw are either only touchscreen or are belonging to att.

For my business line I have i phone so I don't need another i phone, also I wouldn't need too much internet on this one either. So my priority is slide out keyboard, preferably have wifi but not necessarily, can work internationally.

Unlimited for $30, or a more discounted data package?

Keep in mind that many of the ATT branded handsets at minimum will flag you to be on at least a $20/mo messaging plan. So prorate that into the phone you choose.

If you can raise your ceiling on price towards $300, you will have more selections (taking a cursory look around @ Amazon in their unlocked section), just unfortunately not many sliders w/ touchscreens. Those are not so much in vogue anymore. OTOH, you would be able to keep your current data plan since you wouldn't be obtained an ATT branded phone.
