New phone/carrier recs.

It's come the time to buy a new cellphone. I have a RAZR V2 and it's falling apart. My Verizon contract is up in November. Should I re-up with Verizon and stay on my family plan or should I break off and/or go to another carrier? And what phone should I look into? All I know is that I do not want a huge fold out QWERTY keyboard like a 16-year-old girl with a Sidekick and probably do not want a Motorola. [more inside]

Looking for a good cheap QWERTY phone.

What is the best value QWERTY phone that one can buy used (unlocked or At&T/Cingular), and where from? EBay didn't yield any crazy deals.

Your favorite moderately priced cell phone? If a Razr is so bad, what should I replace it with?

I broke my brand new (Cingular) Razr and am going to have to buckle down and pay full retail to replace it. Everyone seems to complain about that phone (though I had no problems), so if I'm going to have to pay retail, I might as well get something better. Like what? [more inside]

cellfilter

I'd like to get a friend of mine a new Cellphone for Christmas, since the one she has no longer works properly. Is it possible to buy her a phone such that she could just swap her old phone out with the new one, keeping the same account? She has some sort of contract-free account with Cingular under the AT&T wireless brand (more on that inside), and I don't think that her phone uses a SIM card. [more inside]

Cingular plan to pay-as-you-go?

I have a Nokia cell phone with Cingular service. My two-year contract is up, thank goodness, and I'd like to switch from Cingular's cheapest monthly plan (which has more minutes than I can use) to a pay-as-you-go card. What I want to know is, can I do that while keeping my old cell phone and number? And if so, how?

How to replace a phone whilst under Cingular bondage.

So my wife and I made the stupid decision last year to sign one of Cingular's 2-year contracts for 2 free phones and their Family Plan. Problem is, the phones suck, and we can't upgrade until the contract is up. [more inside]

Multiple accounts on one cell phone

Is there a way to have two cell phone accounts on one phone? To make things more complicated, I'm talking specifically about combining a Nextel account and a Cingular account -- which I believe operate on seperate protocols. Is there hardware that supports this? I'd want to be able to have both accounts active at the same time, and if I were on a call using one, and received a call on the other, the other would get pushed to voicemail.
