    do you guys choose your cell phones based on how thin/small they are? if any crowd does, i'd imagine the SFers to...

    i'm waiting to get my hands on this UltraEdition 6.9(mm) from Samsung. wonder how long it'll be until Cingular offers it for free...perhaps never?

    Not here. Function is most important. SOme of the new Nokia N series smartphones are small though.

    I picked my Nokia 6600 on functionality. I do kind of regret that, but it's not a bad phone.

    Flip phones seem to work best in pants pockets. Pleated pants also do better for cell phones. However, even my close fitting flat-front pants--e.g., Borrelli--do ok with a flip phone.

    I have a Razr. It's thin and small enough that I've never been bothered by it. I usually store it in the front left pocket.

    That new Samsung looks great though. Give it 6-9 months, it'll be offered for free somewhere.

    I use a Treo 700p, before this I had the 650, I carry a "man purse", got used to carrying one, it's pretty cool, I keep a book, the latest Economist, ipod, IEMs, wallet, keys, etc etc in it. [​IMG]

    If I'm wearing dress trousers, I usually also have a jacket. So, I just put my phone there. It may not be the lightest or thinnest flip phone, but I can't say I'm going to shell out more money for something that will minimize its appearance in my clothes. They switch out my phone for a better one for free every one or two years anyway. Besides, I can always get one of those belt clip things... I should consider that.
