My current cell phone is almost 3 years old (a.k.a. forever) so it is time for me to upgrade.

-Needs to be under $200
-Big buttons. I don't understand how people can let cell phones get smaller and smaller. I can't even press 1 button only on some of these newer phones. I have pretty skinny fingers too.
-Good reception. Basically the only thing I do with my cell phone is talk anyway. Don't need any of that frivolous stuff like games.
-No Motorola. Please.
-Prefer it not to be extremely small, about medium sized.

that's about it. i don't need a camera but if it has one, whatever.

flip vs. candy bar? about even. i don't mind either.

Nokia 6230/6230i is bulletproof, feature packed and pretty cheap these days. Actually, most modern Nokias fit the bill for your wants and are GSM, therefore T-Mobile ready.

I like www.mobileplanet.com. They're not the cheapest, but they're reputable, with excellent customer service. If you wanna play it fast and loose, you can find a lot of cheap stuff from other sites, but God help ya if there's a problem and you need an English speaker on the phone to sort it out (or reply to your e-mails).
