    The only one that fits your bill is Nokia 6610i. However, if you are ready to forgo the camera, then 6030 will also cover the rest of the points and you will save a few bucks as well ;)

    BTW, 6030 is a great phone in that price range! I will prefer it over 6610i simply because the pics clicked with that one are pretty useless. You have to later sit and delete them while selling the phone :| You can't even have them printed because they are very low res

    SE 700i would be a better option.

    U'll not regret the purchase
    thats a promise from an X-k700i user.

    It suits all ur requirement.
    Sound quality is awasome and radio reception is quite good too.

    I read on some sites about some problems in SE k700i, like the phone hangs when we edit or add an entry in the phone book. Is it true?

    Or ne other cons in this phone that u guys will want to share?

    btw I liked this phone after reading many reviews on net and our DIGIT forum :D

    SE K700i is a bit slow
    I always take snap in size 1280*960(extended size),so whenever want to open my picture folder after taking a new pic, it take times to view the thumbnail(3-4 sec),but once it is open it does not take time to reopen it after closing it .

    The fone is fast. Menus are fast and it hangs rarely, say 1nce a month or even less.

    One problem though. Even though it has 41 mb, the SMS memory is different. Thats y after 70-80 msgs in ur INBOX, the SMS memory will be full,even tho you may have 40mb free.
    Ots annoying
