Cell phone suggestions

Here’s a question for anyone out there… any suggestions on cellphone providers and/or phones themselves?

[Erica](http://www.ericaendicott.com) and I have been considering making a switch from Sprint for a while, mostly because our phone numbers are still Columbia, Mo. area codes.

Our current top contended is Cingular, and the [Razr](http://www.engadget.com/entry/1234000707022173/). I normally wouldn’t consider spending that much on a shoephone, but I like its looks, and the features seem pretty nice, and [Amazon has a swanky special on them](http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B0006I2E1O/qid=1116970758/sr=8-1/ref=pd_csp_1/103-2259896-2064613?v=glance&s=wireless&n=507846).

On the service side, we’re just looking to not get ripped when it comes to prices/minutes. On the phone side, we’re both looking for Bluetooth.

I also guess I should enter the “text-message/cameraphone” world that everyone by Erica and I are a part of…

Any thoughts?

    You probably know this, but companies do charge a fee each time you send a photo, unless you pay extra in your monthly. I don’t use the camera all that much – but you might. Quality is pretty marginal.

    And ask for the ajc discount for employees. I think it is 15% with most providers. And they may offer other line-item discounts – maybe on the phone? Just be sure to ask.
