OK.  I don’t need a new phone anymore.  I got one today.  I got the Motorola V266 from US Cellular.  There’s nothing special about the phone (no Windows Mobile, Palm OS, QWERTY, etc.), but it does have one important feature:

  1. It works

Plus, it has a camera and voice commands, but I don’t know how often I’ll use those.  It was free (after rebate), and a friend works at US Cellular, so it made the decision easier — she even sent in the rebate form for me so I wouldn’t forget.

So now if I don’t answer your calls I’m either in a meeting or ignoring you.  😉
