I am thinking of getting either a Motorola Rokr or Slvr. Which is better?

The Slvr is newer, but the Rokr has "stereo" speakers built in.

The Slvr looks better to me. Similar to my wife's Razr

Any comments would be appreciated.

LG VX 8300..... far superior to the Razr! I agonized over a cell phone purchase for weeks, did tons of research and read a million reviews and opinions.

My brother has the LG VX 8300. I have to say it is one of the best phones I have heard or seen.

He always uses his speakerphone while driving, and you would never know it. Can't hear any road noise, echo or cut outs.

The stereo speakers provide clean crisp sound.

motorola V3x if you're on t-mobile, Sony-Ericsson W600, if you're on Cingular/ATT
I like the W600. Where can you purchase these phones new for Cingular without having to subscribe to a new plan? I have a Samsung phone that is good, I just would like the MP3 player with the phone.

Can you purchase a phone reliably and have it work for your carrier?

I have one for sale, has about an hour of talk time on it, I won it when I worked for Cingular, I switched to T-mobile after I got layed off, it's like new, with box, software,cables,chargers, two faceplates,etc... I even unbranded it, and loaded about 20 games on it, has most recent firmware on it..... it's loud, and sounds beautiful, it's stereo as well, and has an FM radio built in.....if I didnt switch to T-mobile, I'd still be using it.....


PM me if you're interested....

That means it can be used on any carrier. It's not "locked" or "branded" to a specific carrier. I did the same with my Razr, which by the way, can play MP3's but only a few as there is not enough memory :(

BTW I have cingular
