Hey guys, Im after a new Vodafone Mobile, and am having a bit o trouble finding one that suits my needs.
So I wondered if you guys might have any suggestions.
What I'm after is a mobile that:

- Has reasonable sized memory (not neccessarily external memory)
- Can use Mp3 and voice recordings as ringtones and message alerts.
- is preferably a clamshell
- Smallish in size, i.e. not a sharp 903.

A few of the panasonic "VS" range look quite good, but I havent been able to find out much about these phones.

Any help or suggestions at all would be appreciated.
Thanks
