The best mobile phone!

I'm about to upgrade my phone - contract renewal is due.

But I've got no idea what the "best" phone around.
My favourite phone was the V3 - as a bloke I think it's just right for fitting in suit pockets and jeans pockets. Battery life was a bit low - but charging from any USB port on a PC is a cool feature.

I'm really tempted to go with a V3i.
What other "must have" phones are around?

I've always had Nokias and don't think i would try anything else as i would have to start again and learn how to use it.
Nokia are bringing out a new range of 'Nseries' phones

http://www.nokia.com/nseries/index.h...=en&country=R1

I'm waiting for the N80 which should be out next month.

I used to like nokias, but they went all plasticky and bling a while back which kinda turned me off to them.
What's the predictive texts like these days - I liked the way the motorola learnt which words you used and prioritised them over dictionary order.

Im using a motorola SLVR, can't really tell you how good it is, coz as most people know I hardly ever answer it.

Mind you, I'm not even sure where I've left it!

Nice phone that Tony,

I especially like the 'anti-chaos' siren & red flashing light function it has!
