Seeking feedback on phones

I have to decide between the following phones. Any input?

  • Nokia 6102i ($29.99 after receiving a $50 visa card ala mail-in rebate 10-12 weeks from now)
  • LG C2000 (free) <—- Chose this one
  • LG CG225 ($9.99 after receiving a $50 visa card ala mail-in rebate 10-12 weeks from now)
  • LG CG300 ($49.99 after receiving a $50 visa card ala mail-in rebate 10-12 weeks from now) also buy one get one free
  • Samsung D407 ($9.99 after receiving a $50 visa card ala mail-in rebate 10-12 weeks from now)
  • Pantech C300 ($69.99)
  • Motorola L2 (free) No camera

I’ve linked each to a nice C|Net review that includes a short video of the phone.

Update: Chose the LG C2000 because for its purpose it is simply a value that could not be beat. The Nokia 6102i was the runner up and had Cingular not screwed me on rebates (to the tune of $200) in the past I might have considered it. After excluding the features of Nokia 6102i that would not be used it pretty much matched the features set of the LG C2000 for $80 more.

  1. It is funny shopping for a phone… When I got my cell phone, I got one step up from the free phone. It’s a nice phone, but not crazy with a camera and video and music, etc… Our friend’s son asked why I didn’t get a camera phone and I said it was about $80 more for a feature I won’t use and he said, “but it’s a camera phone.” Amazing how our perspectives change over time.

  2. I actually value the camera in the phone. So often an opportunity comes up and I can snap the picture and immediately send it online. I enjoy that. I only wish the phone was of better quality. Even 3megapixel would be nice.
