My trusty old T-219
is pretty beat up and needs a new battery, so I figure it's time for a new phone. I mostly make short calls and send simple text messages, so I'm really just looking for something that's comfortable in my pocket.
My requirements (in approximate priority order):
- GSM (T-Mobile prepaid in the USA if it matters)
- Small (thickness is the most important dimension)
- T9 text messaging
- Under $200, but let's aim for less?
If it has a camera or video recording or bluetooth or MP3 playback or a jetpack that's fine, I just don't care. A qwerty keyboard is a dealbreaker, though - anything big enough to type on is too big for my pocket.
