cellphones

Okay, quickly. I'm looking for a new cell phone that provide simple feartures, easy to use, small but not too small (a little bigger than the nokia 8310). I'd also like the phone not to heat up when i use it and not for the battery to drain super ultra fast like my nokia 8310 does.

any ideas?

i got an LG flip.. it's like the 100$ model (can't remember the exact name) It's color, easy to use, small but not too small.. battery lasts awhile, only time the phone heated up on me was when i was on the phone for like 2 hours.. been a good phone thus far.
 
I have a motorola v60, I like it. Its easy to use, not to small and good.


EDIT: and the battery can last for 2 days straight without being turned off.

i personally like the sony ericsson t226, i have the t86i though
excellent battery life too, as long as you don't spend all day playing the games

I want something that doesn't drain the battery when you talk on the phone or something. I know most phones can go for a week if you dont touch it and just leave it on. but then my nokia does that, and when i make a call or send a few messages, the battery just drains

yeah but i'd except phones to not die after a 2-minute call...c'mon...
I know, I'm just making fun of you, my dad's phone is like that, don't know why, but it'll display full power and then crap out on one call

mine hasn't been any trouble, I picked it based on the batteries
 
You make sure to let the battery drain all the way until its 100% dead right? Because if you charge it when its not fully dead the battery will think thats where its supposed to die.

Changing the setting on you phone can help, too. If you have a phone with the color screens, those can drain battery power fast.

Put your Backlight on the lowest timer possible. (7 seconds, in my case.) Do the same to your Key Light. Also, I keep the brightness on my screen at 26%, as opposed to the 80% factory setting. I could go as low as 20% if I wanted to and still see the screen just fine, but I don't have any problems with my current settings. Just keep in mind that things like talking and playing games and text messaging will drain your battery. I think I can get around maybe 3 hours out of my phone on a fully charged battery, as opposed to over 2-3 days of not using it for such things. Also, cheaper phones have cheaper batteries, that don't have as much capacity. My phone's a LG VX4400, which is a rather good one.
