    Within the next couple days I plan on upgrading to a new cell phone. I have Verizon, and have no plans on switching services.

    I am leaning towards the LG enV Touch. I had a chance to play with it for a bit, and liked the touch screen interface it had. I felt it took the right amount of pressure to click the icons. I also like that it has a qwerty keyboard when it's flipped open. It's got really good reviews, and I was happy with the call quality.

    What I am looking for is for other suggestions for a phone around $100. I plan on barely using frivolous features. Mainly phone calls, emailing and occasional web browsing while on the go. A qwerty keypad is a must for any phone I buy. So let me know what you guys think.

    Not really interested in the Blackberry models. I wasn't happy with how the Storm handled, plus I wanted something with a physical keypad. And silentdarth, thanks for the offer, but I prefer to buy my phones new.

    I think you missed my quote of him also saying he was staying on Verizon.

    I like my Voyager. Haven't really been looking at new phones since I got mine though. I hate getting a new phone and within a month new phones come out.

    I usually buy a phone and hang onto it for years. My current phone is almost 5 years old now.

    My friend got the env touch and likes it alot. I got to mess around with it, its not bad. Not as good as the iphone for web browsing but it'll do.

    Right now I'm looking at a few new phones. Samsung Omnia, Eternity, and Nokia 5800.
