Hey guys.

Recently moved to telecom for their cheaper call rates and stuff, but the phone they gave me is a bit sad.
After having really been spoilt for choice on vodafone i must admit the telecom phones altho not surprisingly do leave a taste in the mouth.

Tthe qualities im after are:
- mp3 player with radio
- a nice interface, not the musicstore if ablt but rather a music interface that can be accessed via one or 2 buttons, and not have to go thru the telecom music store to play my tunes, or is that asking a bit much?
- ability to use mp3s as ringtones and message alerts
- ability to use my own headphones, ie not the crappy ones they always come with.
- is phone sized, ie doesnt require a large pocket to be sewn in my jeans.


Im kinda thinkin either
nokia 6265 or 6275
or the new okta touch or even just the agent.

any suggestions are more than welcome.
cheers

I am leaning towards either that or the nokia 6275 for its sheer simplicity.

The 6275 is 'ok' but it just hasnt been pulled off as well as I know Nokia can pull off a phone.

The Touch eats it alive for my needs, and has oodles of cool-factor. And for basic functionality, is still reasonably simplistic.

and after reading more online about the touch, I am so sold.

It just has to wait a few weeks ow till ive paid for an impromptu work trip to brisbane.

There is a couple of good reviews for it here on geekzone, nice pics and words. Converted me straight away. :-)
