Need phone recomendation for my self and parrents!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My parents are getting us a family plan though AT&T, and we are trying to decide on what phones to get. They want a phone that has a big, easy to read screen (they are both over 50), high-quality speaker, good antenna, and big, easy to press buttons.

I want a phone that has the most bang for the buck. Here are my criteria:

Not a razor!
Looks nice (I know looks are subjective, but no pink phones at least )
Bluetooth
Video camera

I was looking at the Sony Ericsson W810i, but its $70, and most of the other phones with comparable features are much less (its at least $50 more then every other phone I'm looking at), so I'm not sure if its worth it. Other phones I am considering are the Motorola L6 or the Samsung Sync.

Please post recommendations for both my and my parents!

The N95 is selling for a huge amount of money. I'd go for a K750i, or d750i. As far as i'm concerned it's exceptional phone thats cheap and does everything you want it to. The black K750i looks decent. I wouldn't know what to recommend beyond that. N95 is pretty much the best phone on the market but it's price reflects that.

What is it that your parents are after in a phone? Ahh pardon me, didn't read your post properly. Hmm. N95 is an obvious choice but also get them to take a look at the nokia e series. Another personal favourite of mine would be the SE M600i, which is a quality phone also.
