Recommendations for an inexpensive unlocked non-smart phone with good voice quality and reception?

Any recommendations for an inexpensive unlocked non-smart phone with the following features?

AT&T Network (I am off contract and want to stay off contract)

Top priorities:
-Good call reception
-Good voice quality listening and speaking
-Long battery life
-Bluetooth (Will work with a Plantronics Voyager Pro+)
-Cheap (I would like to keep this less than $100)

Secondary priorities:
-Port for wired headset
-Preferably small flip phone (I used to a Tracfone Motorola w376g which I liked the form factor)
-Preferably Quad band

It is really hard to find advice on non-smart unlocked phones and would appreciate some user feedback. Want this phone to have very good call quality as I want to drop my land line.

I have auditory processing issues so call quality is very important to me (otherwise I can't understand a word that people are saying). I had a Motorola Razr flip (Verizon) phone that was wonderful. When it finally died I spent about 6 months researching and trying out non-smart phones and they ALL sucked. Honestly. The sound quality difference between them all was negligible. Finally I got an iPhone because if I wasn't going to be able to hear calls, at least I could get my email on my phone.

You can get Motorola Razrs on Ebay. Maybe go that route? They are fantastic phones.

I've always like Sony Ericsson phones for reception and sound quality. Unfortunately, it looks like they only make smartphones these days, but I see that Newegg has this one available.
You might also take a look at the other no contract phones Newegg has to offer.
