What phone should I get?

I lost my phone yesterday - somewhere between the airport and the hotel. I doubt anyone will find it and return it to me, so I'm in the market for a new phone. I'd prefer something with a camera - and maybe even the ability to develop Java for it. Any suggestions? Does AT&T carry it? There's an AT&T store right up the street.

I just got a Sony/Erricson T637 yesterday, which I like. The Motorola v600 was a consideration too, but has issues with iSync. S/E and Nokia have some sweet models coming out Q3/Q4.

I'm with tmo, but they have pretty much the same phones as attws. I have a Sony Ericsson T616, and I don't recommend it - the reception sucks. My friends Motorola (V300 I think?) has full a full signal where mine has 1-2 bars and is barely usable. This is also my second T600 series phone, the first one (with ATT) died, and wouldn't power back on. This current one ocassionally says "Insert SIM" on the screen, and I have to take the battery out for an hour. The Sony's have a lot of features for a good price, but my next phone will be a Moto (or maybe Nokia if they ever catch up).

I've got a moto v300 and it is pretty good; java on it is easy. $150 from

I'm not sure what US networks offer it, but I love my Nokia 6600. Developing for it's Relatively easy.

Thanks for the advice gents. I stopped by the Sony/Ericsson booth and they recommended the T637. So I headed up to the local AT&T store and picked one up. It's a pretty cool phone - now I just have to learn how to develop for it. Does it have an SSH client? Time to startup moblogger and start moblogging this sucker.

Hey Matt,

I got the same phone last month.

While it was exciting to develop the first Hello J2ME world MIDlet, I quickly lost interest due to the restricted multimedia API.

No access to built in camera and you won't find a SSH client because the J2ME doesn't support sockets (I have been told).
