    Sanyo 9000

    Sprint's short lived Sanyo 9000
    1. Large Screen
    2. EVDO
    3. Ability to Tether EVDO without needing a phone as modem plan.
    4. Multimedia that took up the whole screen, and it was the first consumer phone on Sprint with the ability to do a memory card from Sanyo
    5. LOUD speaker phone!
    6. Amazing reception, even the subways of Chicago!
    7. The entire time I owned it, I used 70,000 minutes on the lifetimer (low for me) and 700GB of data!

    The best phone... hmm.. i've had so many lol

    I think i would have to go with either my old Kyocera 2135 and my old Nokia 3360

    Those two phones would pull reception out of nowhere it seemed. Those things worked pretty much everywhere.

    Samsung SCH-a530 by a long shot. I still look at it in my drawer and contemplate going back to it at some point. Only phone I've ever had where the battery last almost as long from day one as it did on day 731 (it was a leap year ). Small, durable, easy to use.

    SONY ERICSSON w810i!
    The best multimedia phone of 2005/2006. As i remember it.
    I have had the S.E w810i for about 1+ years now and its still in it prime! I've bought a 2 gb memory card.. It originally came with 1 gb as i bought it while it was in the music pack.

    It has a 2 MP camera.
    Walkman 2.0
    Loudspeaker
    & Lots more.

    I used with phone as my digital camera, and my music device. When i bought the phone it was about 2 weeks after it premiered. it was the best camera that was on the market at the time (for phones). It was the bomb. Everyone loved and i still love it. Its a sleek, simple looking handheld that is old but is still considered in its prime. I suggest buying the white version of it. As i have both now i bought a white one in the box used for 50$ so im happy with that. i have two S.E w810i and on Thursday im buying a Nokia N95. YEAH~!

    I used to sell phones when I worked at RadioShack over a span of 7 years, and I went through many a phone as I had GTE/Verizon, Sprint PCS and Cingular with the ability to return and trade phones when I wanted. My first phone was a Motorola MicroTAC non-flip (can't remember the model number) on GTE, and when the StarTAC 3000 was introduced I jumped right on that bandwagon. I can still remember prople calling it the "StarTrek" and quoting 'Star Trek' when I showed it to them, saying "well, beam me up Scotty!" I probably sold close to 200 of those damn things in 1999.

    Many, many phones later in 2000, I purchased my favorite phone ever, the early Japanese-built Sanyo SCP-4000 on Sprint PCS. This phone was small and looked great, but it also gave me the best performance of any Sprint phone I've ever had and was tough as nails. It even withstood being thrown from my truck when I totalled it by massive light pole trauma; I found it outside of the truck, in the rain, in two peices, phone and battery. I put the battery back on and made a call. After that I threw it across the floor to show people how tough it was. It finally died during an abusive demonstration several months later, but it was the toughest phone I've ever had.

    A close second is my ROKR E1 which I still use today. I've kept this phone longer than any other phone I've used daily, almost two years. I'm retireing it to secondary duty since my KRZR K1 is on it's way.

    old school

    As much as I love my current VX8300, I think the best phone I ever had was my old Nokia 5185i. That phone, although basic, was an absolute tank. The battery lasted for a week even after 2 years. It had text capability, which a lot of phones did not have at the time.

    It was INCREDIBLY durable. I can't remember how many times I threw the phone, dropped the phone, etc...It took a beating. It pulled signal everywhere and had good call quality.

    The green screen did leave a little to be desired!

    My rankings would be as follows:
    1) Nokia 5185i (basic and functional. I wish I had it for a backup.)

    2) LG VX8300 (no problems thus far, knock on wood. I enjoy it as much as my E815, but it has been more dependable)

    3) Moto E815 (would be higher if I did not have 3 of them replaced due to various things going wrong with the phone-great phone otherwise, including tons of hackability, good battery life, and would pull signal in a coal mine)
    Those cellular phones are never going to catch on...

    My current backup phone...the Motorola V635, is the best pure mobile phone I have ever used. Granted, it has been slightly hacked to raise the earpiece volume (slightly) and to upgrade the OS...but it is amazing. Near perfect reception, easy to use, built as tough as an armored truck, good looking, still pretty exclusive (at least in the US market)...and never, ever drops a call or requires a "reboot". Pretty damn good, if you ask me.

    In terms of just a "phone" Motorola Razr2 V8.

    But for an all-in-one Multimedia Device my current phone, Nokia N82.
