Can anyone recommend a cell phone with a good camera? Perhaps the one with the <i>best</i> camera? I need a camera, just for everyday stuff, and my cell phone is really old now, so I figure getting both in one would be a good option. Unfortunately, I know nothing at all about cell phones. I really mean it, <i>nothing</i>. So, I have no idea where to begin. If you could point me to some recommendations, that would be sweet, thanks.<br><br>
The only things I'm looking for are:<br>
-Good service with Cingular network (as in designed for Cingular)<br>
-Excellent camera (preferably the <i>best</i>)<br>
-Good looking design (I prefer the tall and thin look. Flip phones don't tickle my fancy, but if you find a good one, please post it.)<br><br>
Those are the most important qualities in order of most important to least important. Thanks for any good finds!

Yes, thats a very nice phone, but if u decide to go for it go for the k790i because the k800i is made for europe and it will work over here, but my uncle just got that phone and he had tons of trouble using it w/ cingular and ended up trading it for a krzr.

For the US, <a href="http://www.gsmarena.com/sony_ericsson_k790-1484.php" target="_blank">K790a</a>. As far as I know, the camera is 3.2MP and I think it's the only one with 3.2MP right now. It also has EDGE.<br><br>
The K800 is the Uk Version.

Thanks, the K790a is EXACTLY what I had in mind. If i could draw out what I was thinking about in my first post, it would look like that. Unfortunately, it costs $480 at amazon. That's a lot of cash. I was thinking about keeping it under $250. Are there any that fit the bill there? Thanks for the great suggestions again guys, you read my mind!

Some tone-downed models would be:<br><br>
With 3G:<br><a href="http://www.gsmarena.com/sony_ericsson_v630-1569.php" target="_blank">Sony Ericsson V630</a><br><br>
With EDGE:<br><a href="http://www.gsmarena.com/sony_ericsson_w810-1402.php" target="_blank">Sony Ericsson W810i</a><br><br>
Not sure of the prices for those but they shouldn't be as expensive.

Maybe try the <a href="http://www.gsmarena.com/sony_ericsson_k610-1431.php" target="_blank">K610</a>? But this one has a 2.0 MP camera.<br><br>
I am getting the K790a myself in November<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/cool.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Cool">

Hmm, the picture quality of those other models is significantly lower than the K790a. It's just exactly waht I want, but for so much money! Is there any way to get a phone for cheaper?<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin">

I don't think so, like I said earlier. I <b>think</b> it is the only phone with a 3.2MP camera as of today. If your budget limits you from it, the next thing would be to look at the 2.0MP camera phones.

That K610 is starting to look good. The only problem is that it doiesn't have a 850MHz band, as the KXXXa versions do. I can only find the K6XXi versions and the i version of the K750 also. Since I have Cingular, an 850MHz band is necessary for best coverage and quality. Do you know of any place I might find a K750a or K610a? Thank you in advance.

I would recomend the W810i I personally have it and its amazing quality!! 2 MP with lite\\flash. Amazing mp3 player comes with a 512 stick so u can store all your media! and i cant stop loving the design gsm arena gave it i think 8.1 overall which is amazingly high and i picked this up for 100 on promotion with rogers on a 2 year!

The Nokia N93 and N73 both have 3.2MP cameras, the LG K920 has a 5.0MP camera. There is also a Nokia with a 5.0MP camera too, but I can't find where I saw it :/

Hmm..you can take a look at the <a href="http://www.gsmarena.com/lg_kg920-1467.php" target="_blank">LG K920</a>. But aside from the 5.0MP, everything seems typical. Your choice

The SCH-A990 is Verzon only. I actually love the design of that phone, but I can't find any unlocked versions. The LG KG920 is just a tad too expensive for what I need.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> The Nokia N75 also looks great, and it's quad band, so it supports 850MHz. The only problem is, it's not out yet. I think that the N75, Ericsson K790a, and SCH-A990 are my top pics. They all have flaws right now though. The N75 isn't out yet, the Ericsson is too expensive right now, ane the A990 is only for Verizon. Oh well, which every one get's within my range first is probably the one I'll get. I just hope it's the Ericsson, man I love the looks of that thing!

You might be able to talk to a local cingular store, and see if they have refurbished phones. Theyre practically new, and usually are half the price. If thats a route youd consider.
