Question Solid wireless phone - non PDA/Blackberry/Iphone style

Please Login to Remove!

Gents and ladies-

I am looking for a new phone for my wife and wanted some suggestions from the board. She does not need/want GPS, MP3 player, internet/email access, and the like. Just a solid phone. I realize that with most phones now, will have a couple of the high tech things that she doesn't need.

Does anyone have a good phone they would suggest?

Thanks Matt

Motorola RAZR V3. Should be free after rebates and such.
Comes in several colors too.

From my experience, Nokia does a very nice job with call quality.

also the Blackberry makes a good solid phone as well (not sure why but many people get the Pearl touse just as a phone) I tried it as a phone only and I would pay the money to get it as just a phone.

on ATTs network BB has second fewest dropped calls
