I'm a newbie to high tech cell phones but have done a bunch of research on them. I've basically narrowed it down to 2 phones, the SE s710a or the Nokia 6230i. The pros (versus the Nokia) on the SE are the design and screen size. The pros (versus the SE) on the Nokia are more memory than the SE and an FM radio. My requirements for a phone are bluetooth, camera, data-capable, EDGE, music player and wireless internet. I would really like it to have FM radio but could live without.

Here is the only other draw back of the 6230i. At it is this, it doesn't have the 850 band. The phone really is for markets in Europe and Asia.

If you have Cingular, ask to see if they have the 1900 band in your area, since that is the only one this phone will pick up in the USA.
