    Hi all, long time Verizon user here. Due to a limited amount of bar phones available at the time, I was "forced" into purchasing the Motoslvr L7. I've had the phone for over a year, and I hate it. I'm at the point of tossing it into the trash. :flamemad:

    I would appreciate suggestions, as I am looking for the following traits in a phone:

    1) Bar shape - not married to this, but I'm clumsy (handicapped) and tend to drop phones, and I'm tired of breaking flip hinges.

    2) Sound quality - more than anything else, I want folks to hear me and me to hear them clearly, after all, that's the point of a phone. :)

    3) I would prefer a slim phone, not some chunky monstrosity that could rival my mac mini in size.

    4) Decent camera would be a plus, but not a deal breaker.

    5) Easy to use keys

    6) I don't know if this exists, but a phone that will allow me to use one of my MP3s as a ring tone so I don't have to "rent" one from Verizon.

    Last but not least, it can't be a Motorola. Price - hopefully not insane, but open to all ranges

    I've stuck with Verizon for various reasons, but I'm 2 steps away from canceling and going to a provider who offers more pones that I would like.

    Thanks in advance

    LG VX8300 or LG VX8350
    Both are good "Phones" (vs PDA/MP3 players that pretend to make calls) but are still loaded with features. Some people say they feel cheap, but no one I know (my work issued these phones to about 50 people) have broken the phones at the flip joint. The only indestructable phone I have ever seen is the Nokia 3595

    Well there is really no bar phones for Verizon so really the only other thing I would suggest if the chocolate 2. It is a slider but really is a good phone. You wont have to worry about a hing breaking on you. Also it is a thin phone.
