Hmm Well if Push to Talk is important then get the Sanyo, otherwise the Samsung is a nice choice, an alright Clamshell with Video for $399

I like cats... they taste like Chicken

I would stay away from the Samsung , it has a very poor menu , and the WAP broswer , does not support a very rich user experience. The 8200 , gives you PTT , Pics, extra , and has a very good menu

if you want PTT get the Sanyo - its a nice phone.

If you dont want PTT, then get the 6235, but test a working model before you buy as you may hate the joystick directional thingimabob.

The nokia 6235 isn't a clamshell so you probably wouldn't like that. The samsung A680 which I have sent quite a few away for texting issues probably isn't the way to go either. Ever since I first went away from Nokia to a Sanyo I was convinced... The Sanyo would definately be the best choice, it is the most user friendly.

5600 for me... it's a 7400 with better camera and mp3 player...

But I must say I did like my old 7400

I personally would pick the nokia 6235, great little phone. I dont mind the joystick, just takes a little bit of getting used to.
