Default 7730 or 7290 (or even 6280 or 6230)?

Please Login to Remove!

My beloved 7730, which I used many years, died.

If has fallen down and someone stepped on it.

I like to replace it with another used model I will get via Ebay.

I don't need any modern features of typical actual phones.

I don't need the high resolution of 240px x 240px. If I could read a standard SMS of 160 characters without scrolling, I'm fine.
I don't need colors.
I don't need mails.

I will use it in Europe, so I need Triband or Quadband.

Just one question:
There's the 7290.

When I compare the features, I could only see, that the 7290 offers Bluetooth, which the 7730 does not.

Do you see any other relevant advantage of the 7290 compared to the 7730 or do you advise the 7730?

Or should I look for a 6280 a 6230 which have almost twice as much standby als the 7730, if the specs are true?
But the 6280 and the 6230 are rare on Ebay.
On the other hand they are charming with their monochrome displays?

Ciao, Ompul
