I had a razr for 2 years and I had no problem with it. Everyone kept telling me how terrible they are and how no one likes them but mine was wonderful. I dropped it A LOT and never had a problem. It was very durable. I just got a Samsung Muse 2 weeks ago today and I really like it so far. It may be a little bigger than you are looking for but it's a nice phone. With renewing my contract I got a good deal on it. It's got a super nice camera (for a phone), calculator, tip calculator, calendar, MP3 Player, etc. I don't know much about any other phones but this is mine! I like it a lot. :)

I received this by email just 5 mins ago. It pertains more to Canadians but still thought it was interesting:

I'm not a huge razr fan, but mine is deffinitely durable, probably because I keep a phone cover on it.... it hasn't broken (except one button only worked part of the time, cus i used it so much) and I literally throw the phone around my house.... I got phone insurance because I swore it would break and then i could get a new one, but I still have the old one.....

I do have a question, do you need to stay on the same network?? and which network are you??

ok, my two cents :) I would rather have a motorola flip phone. I carry my phone in my back pocket alot and forget to lock the keys, can't tell ya how many times I have called someone with my backside, LOL... I currently carry the blackberry cure 8310 and am in love with it, but yes i have to child proof it for me, I am sooo clumsy, but I have to have it for work/business. It has everything that i need, and am planning on upgrading when I can to something along the lines of the iphone, but waiting for them to get all the kinks worked out or come up with something better. Like a fine wine, technology only gets better with age but if I did not have to be accessible 24/7 for work, email, calls, pages, etc and run such a tight schedule, then I would go with a flip motorola by far! I don't know if they are cute, like you are looking for, but you can always bling them up. That's what I do, I get clear covers, and rhinestone them, and I buy the screen covers to protect from scratches. The only prob with a flip is that the connection between the ear set and the hand set can get messed up easily by just sitting on it alot and if they don't line up then you have probs, also with the screen going black etc. Have had this happen a few times from sitting on and dropping a flip phone.

Well I know that was prob no help, but that's all I got for you right now 8)

That was in part my problem. I have always preferred the flip phones as I also tend to accidently call people. Having said that, because of what I do I need to have access to everything at all times. Between family, work, friends and the horses I need to be available 24/7.

Before I head the iPhone was coming out, I was also looking at the Blackberry. Heard only great things about it.

Part of my problem to is having had access to so much when I didn't need it, that now I couldn't go back to having less
I am a bit of a junky with new toys to tho, especially when it comes down to phones.

I have received a lot of emails and forwards about the new plans that have come out for some of the newer phones. The wireless companies are cranking up their prices and taking our money. I find it unfair for the average users as they pay a lot for the little that they actually get. I won't complain. I don't know what I would do without my phone.

I have a Motorola KRZR K1M. It's slimmer & WAY sleeker than the RAZR. Nicer, too.
It easily fits in pockets! Looks like this, but in black. It comes in blue (in some areas), red, black, silver, & I think white? lol unsure.

ohhhh make your own ringtones eh? Thats one of the things I am really excited about. Apple and the iPhone are just amazing together. Looking forwards to putting the new ringtones (clips of songs that I have already cut out and gotten ready) on the phone.
