umm, I'd read some reviews before getting the Chocolate as I've heard quite a bit of bad things about it. <br />
<br />
ie. It only has internal memory, mediocre camera, not that great of a touch menu...among others.

Forget it, you're not a touching a current-ish gen unlocked phone for under 200.<br />
<br />
At that, check out the Sony Ericsson K750i.

The lg chocolate got rated horribly. Supposedly the usability is difficult and slow.

</div>Yeah, to use other sims. But you still need to use T-Mobile with that phone. Only carrier that uses that phone.

</div>What's the difference between new and never-been-used. You're making no sense.

So you want a phone that does ringtones, games, pictures, modern stuff, unlocked, for under 150 dollars.<br />
<br />
This is like the thread asking where one could buy 2 tickets to London for under 500 dollars.

Notice how I never said I wanted any of those, cept I wanted to be able to connect to the computer for ring tones/games. Which quite a few phones CAN do.<br />
<br />
Theres a bit of a difference between "preferred" and "need." <img src="/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)" class="inlineimg" />

I have a Samsung A900 from Sprint. It's slim like a RAZR and if you get the $15 PowerVision plan all you need to do is upload ringtones and games and such to a certain website and you download them via your phone, quite simple actually and you can use .m4a type ringers.<br />
<br />
I got mine for $100 (after $50 rebate). The only thing is the battery life, it's not so great and there is no extended battery but overall it's a great phone.<br />
<br />
I like having Sirius Satellite radio (Hits 1 station) to listen to even though I have Sirius in my car, so that's another plus
