I've had a V551 since last fall, and being it was my first "modern" phone (Nextel i1000+ for previous 5 years) it seemed pretty good to me. But now I'm wondering if there's something better out there (yet still affordable). I'm with Cingular, 450minutes/unlimited MEdiaNet/1000 txt msgs package. Main things I want to improve on over the v551 are: Menu/app loading speed. Camera w/ high enough resolution that it's actually worth taking pics with it. More detailed/customizable/feature-full(?) AIM client. Removable memory card. Web browser which is able to display entire HTML pages, not just WAP. Nothing really flashy/blingy.
