I've been eyeing the LG P525...

What sort of features are you looking for? I always see those cheap myPhones with dual sim. A friend at work has one and it hasn't broken down yet.

I need one with "good" Bluetooth connectivity...
I've been using a MyPhone T23 for a couple of months now and my Bluetooth (Jabra) headset keeps getting disconnected in the middle of a conversation. Apparently, MyPhones' and Cherry M Phones don't have Bluetooth connectivity stable enough to maintain a pairing in "noisy" environments. The store I got the phone from has already replaced the unit twice and it still exhibits the same annoying characteristic.

And I know that my headset is not the problem either since I can still use it on my old N2680 and N5000 with no disconnections.

i'm selling my e63, and i'm on the lookout for dualsim phone for smart and sun. i'm leaning on getting the c2, over the x1. i've got the iphone for my multimedia needs.

cherry mobile had a sale the other day for their dual-sim android phone, but i didn't like the feel of the touchscreen.
it puzzles me how women seem so fragile but they can hurt men more than they realize it.

i will give you 2000 czech crowns...

I tried that yesterday. Keys are tad too small. A pity, really.

yup. once i went QWERTY, i never even considered "touch screen" phones.


I tried that yesterday. Keys are tad too small. A pity, really.

baka di ka lang sanay, idk, medyo may psychological effect kasi yung QWERTY phones. the keys look small but they are not that difficult to use. it was actually a turn off to me at first, but after trying to type a few words, i never looked back.

i have huge hands (i can grip a basketball with either hand) and i'm using a Nokia E72 which seems to have smaller keys than that Samsung C3222, but i never had any difficulty using the phone. in fact, i would never go back with the old numeric key phones (although i'm currently using an E52 as my second phone, but that's just because i don't want to carry two "large" phones with me every time).

Dude, I have been using the Nokia E63, another QWERTY phone, for more than a year. And I had difficulty typing with the Samsung phone.

i'm eyeing the new nokia e6, but i'm gonna buy it when it reaches the 12K mark, which i hope will be by december.

i gotta say that i don't find touch screen phones appealing either.

I got teh LG P525...

I tested 3 phones:
Nokia C2
LG P525
Samsung Champ Duos

of the 3, LG's Bluetooth performance was exemplary (no noise or signal drift even if the phone was in my pocket)
Nokia C2 and Samsung Champ sometimes drifted when I turned my head... (weird huh)

Since Bluetooth headsets/headphones were mentioned, I'm wondering what's to look for when getting a Bluetooth headset/headphone and how much does a good (but hopefully relatively inexpensive) set cost?

The Jabras are good. I'm using the multi-point EasyGo model that can pair to two celfones at the same time. Got it for P2295 at PowerMac. Single-point models go for less than P2K.  There's also the Hi-Sense brand that's slightly cheaper but don't know how they perform. Stay away from the cheap CDRKing ones. They are  crappy.
