Which is best for Music? Impression, Xenon or Eternity?

I'm considering either the Impression, Xenon, or Eternity. I will be new to texting but I am also a huge music fan.

max microsd memory is 16GB
has an equalizer
No 3.55mm wired headphone adapter - must go bluetooth

max microsd memory is 8GB
has an equalizer
3.5mm jack built in

max microsd memory is 8GB
No equalizer?
3.5mm adapter is available

I'm concerned about the Impression's music features. Does anyone have any good feedback on the Impression's music features?

Does not read contacts on SIM

One problem that I have found on this phone is that the phone does not read the contact list off of the SIM in normal use. In order for the phone to read your contacts, you must copy them to the phone when you boot up the phone the first time. If you tell the phone not to copy the contacts, it will not read them from the SIM and does not allow you to copy them at a later time. You have to take your SIM out, put in another SIM, boot up the phone, shut it down, then put the customer's SIM back in for it to ask you to copy the contacts from the SIM into the phone. People who like to keep their contacts on their SIM and have the phone read them from the SIM cannot do this on the Impression.

Keyboard is horrible regardless of what review said. You must try it to experience it. I really wanted to like this phone and ready to change carriers but the keyboard.......

AT&T Navigator?

AT&T does not talk about the Navigator in the features section for this phone. Is it available? Has anyone used the GPS ?

Is it possible to be on AIM, MSN, and YAHOO messenger simultaneously? I can't figure out how to be on more than one at a time. My brother's lg xenon can go on all 3 at the same time so I thought for sure my impression could.

so close, voicedial?

I love options, there is no shortage here. Whatever your preferred input method its got it. Keypad, touchscreen, and touch keypad.

Except one feature I used on my Vu.

Voicedial (speaker independent preferred) doesn't seem to be present. A little tough when calling going down the road. I plan on remedying this by buying a bluetooth headset that has voicedial.

Impressive features...except....

It is only HSDPA 3.6. With the latest news about ATT upgrading to 14.4 and even to 21mbps, you'd think they'd starting rolling out 7.2Mbps cellphones.

I guess not.
