I'm buying a slimmer style phone. I want a phone that is sleek
but is more durable than the Motorola's ( I had three razors replaced
in the space of 8 months under warranty). I don't need bells and
whistles but these are the two I like the best.

http://www.gsmarena.com/sony_ericsson_s500-1983.php - Sony S500
^ Can get it for 289.00$ + S&H

http://www.gsmarena.com/nokia_6300-1800.php Nokia - 6300
^ Can get it for 264.71$ + S&H

The nokia I could get for 220$ but thats the 900 GSM version and I
live in the States (California), so I need to pay more for the 850 GSM Version.
[EDIT] Or buy it new from eBay for 200$, I don't Trus the eBay's though[/edit]

Which one should I choose?

I bought Nokia 6300 couple of weeks ago for my lil bro, it’s really thin, light, & it has a very bright cheerful display. On the other hand S500 has the most wonderful casing ever, But I guess it's only for girls with small fingers. It's really hard to dial a number .

I recently got the Nokia 6300 and it is great. It has everything you need a good media player and it looks very elegant and beautiful. I Have not actually seen the or used the other phone so i wouldn't know what its like, but the 6300 is very nice.
