I'm looking for a new Mobile Phone. I'm looking at models like the Sony Ericsson T230 & the Nokia 2300 (or similar price range models)

Which one should I go for? Also any other brands/models I should be considering?

The T230 has *loads* of features over the 2300, but I'm a Nokia fan. After going through the specs I'm seriously considering thr T230. Price difference between the two is something like INR 90. Any known issues with the T230? The only added feature the 2300 has is the Radio...which I don't listen to much anyway. Not in B'lore atleast ;)

My first two cell phones were Sony Ericssons, but I've now shifted to Nokia. The main difference from what I've seen is that Nokia has a far better reception. I used to get "No signal" at home and college on my Sony Ericsson, but I get good strong signals on my Nokia. Also, I think Nokias takes lesser time to charge.

Thanks :) Reception matters a lot to me.

I guess I'll do the same. Too many -ve remarks about the T230 so far.

If I were to buy a phone one of these days, I would definitely consider Siemens CF62 as an option. It costs around 8-9 k.

(a) Samsung C100 - Pros: 65k colour screen, infrared, GPRS, light-weight, sexy looks

Cons: No Bluetooth. But heck, given the price, it's good.

(b) As Tahir Saab has recommended above. The Seimens CF62 packs the same features as the C100. But the C100 is better priced. Moreover, clamshell (flap) phones are a pain.

Moreover, clamshell (flap) phones are a pain.

Why do you say that? I've been using a flip phone for two years but the flip never caused me grief. The advantages of a flip that I can quickly think of:

- looks really classy
- acts as a general-purpose cancel button (most of the time closing the flip takes the phone to stand-by)
- flip open to take a call, flip shut to end it :D
- no messing around with keypad locks

PS: I didn't get a notification mail for your message :(

so decided on the cute one is it?:)

the positives (over the 2300):

a) the t230 has a neat colour screen
b) nice java games
c) more than one sms gets appended as 2,3,4...
d) better phone book with email addresses and home address
e) wap

the negatives (over the 2300, again)
a) slow menu interface (because of a slow processor + colour display)
b) no radio (shouldn't matter to you)
c) not a nokia :D
d) menu interface much simpler on the 2300
e) reception ain't as good, but the airtel connection *should* patch this up. i've used the t230 on a hutch connection and am making no talk about the connection d'oh...

however both phones don't have any connectivity options to another device. at least the t230 has a wap browser, the 2300 doesn't.
