    So, basically I've never had a cell phone before. You may be saying to yourself "WHAAAT? A 17 year old with no cell phone? The world I know is a lie!" and, well, the reason I never needed one before is because I really have nobody I would actually talk to besides my friends, and they tend to prefer AIM since we're all usually at one of their houses. My mom wants me to get one because I'm going away to college next year and now I have a car and she's paranoid that I'll be stuck on the side of the road.

    BUT I DIGRESS! The question I pose to you, internet, is this: What are some phones that I can basically just connect to my computer and use mp3s as ringtones and jpg/bmp/gif's as backgrounds. That's all I really want it to do. Cause they don't make ringtones of the songs I like.

    Any brand/company is fine, as long as it's still commerically available.

    The image doesn't load.

    Just about all of the newer phones can use MP3's as ringtones and JPEG's as backrounds. Look around www.phonescoop.com and see what you like...

    Get one which is bluetooth enabled.

    A decent adapter (for PC) can be had for 15 - 20.

    It is then a piece of cake to transfer images, video, mp3 to and from the phone.

    Cool Edit is a neat bit of software for making your ringtones from MP3 files.

    Easy Thumbnails is good for crunching (shrinking) jpg etc for use as wallpaper etc. A good quality pic, shrunk to fit your screen resolution will be about 6 or 7 kb.

    My contract is at it's annual renewal stage where I can upgrade my phone for free. I'm not really one for following the mobile phone market but the next phone up from my Sharp GX30 is huge. What I'm looking for is a phone with at least a 1megapixel camera and is quite small.

    Provided I can also phone people and text them, aesthetics is the only other important thing.

    Any ideas would be appreciated.

    Notice the camera icon in the top right hand corner of the screen?
