Which phone feature is most important to you: a 2 Mp camera with video, an MP3 player with stereo BT and 2Gb SD card capacity, 3G speed with internet browsing, Java games, or just making a simple phone call? Pick your new phone based on the best specs of the features you care the most about. For a few bucks more, they might even let you upgrade. I have found the C-Net review pages to be an excellent source for comparison articles and reviews from both pros and users along with detailed specifications of whatever make and model you are interested in. Research carefully there and make a very well informed choice. Let us know what you selected.
My mom had the same problem and didn't want either of those phones. she finally got them to offer her other phones and has the Shine which she really likes. i'd look around at reviews for various phones and you should be able to get a different phone.
