    Hey..

    I am planning to buy a cell under 10K range..or at max i might stretch to 12K..

    I will be using it extensively for Internet on my PC...so EDGE will be important..

    and another prerequisite is MP3 Player..Rest everything can be adjusted..

    btw whats difference between EDGE/GPRS ..are there any other techs of DATA Transfers..better than these...

    even theres EDGE (118kbps) and EDGE (236kbps)...does that make a big difference... and what abt class 10 and all...

    is K750i...good for using NET on PC..i will hardly use it on cell...will mostly use on PC..

    Even other better cells.. which come with better features...and same range..

    Thanx a lot...:)

    K750i is not EDGE enabled

    You can get Nokia 3230 for less than 10k.
    Pros: EDGE, MP3, FM, Memory Slot
    Cons: Very common phone now, low battery life

    pathiks right, u won't find many applications for the s40 series 6230i. Best bet wud be the 6630,large screen and better camera. It also has one of the fastest processors around, too. it fits in ur budget and has all that u asked for.

    DIPEN 6630 is the best u can have in that range..... 6630 is EDGE+3G and airtel networks dont support EDGE as of now..... but u definitely get greater speeds in a EDGE fone over normal GPRS

    Well if ur willing to spend 2-3 K more than u'll get Nokia 6270. Its simply awesome.

    * Dual speakers .....sound quality's like stereo speakers of PC
    * 2 MP camera with flash
    * BT,Infrared,USB,EDGE 236 Kbps
    * 32 MB internal memory....512 MB external card for free!

    and all the things u'll find in Sony ericsson 750i or 800!

    Ma friend bought it a montha ago for 13K .....and its amazing considering the price too !!

    i have a nokia 6270...its really owesome..and must tell u..all the best features at a less price as u can get it for arond 13 k now a days... the 2mp camera is really nice..and the sound quality just rocks...with the headphones its just like an i -pod..it also has an equaliser...and is also having EDGE .which is u r main need.
    and if u r buying it buy the black one as it's killin looks get more stunning..
    and though its S40 platfrom phone u dont need much softwares as built-in mp3 player is great..and u can also install superb java games .and some small applications..
