New basic travel phone. Here in Bangkok...

It's time for a new phone. I use VZW in USA, need something for Europe and SE Asia mostly.

Any of the newer phones charge from USB? I'd like to carry less cables is possible.

Just a basic phone with Bluetooh support. Would like to be able to backup my contacts easily. the Nokia software is quite bloated.

If you want a good International phone CDMA is really not what you want. You want a GSM carrier. Not that CDMA is terrible abroad, but by far more carrier internationally use GSM.

well, I do not use my CDMA phone while traveling I use a separate GSM phone. I prefer to have two phones anyway. The Nokia 3110C (Classic) looks like it will get the job done. Still researching.
