Top phone searches:
These days phones are so much more than just a way to make telephone calls. They're also used for photos, videos, games, email and music. In fact, phones are becoming so good as music players that you needn't own an mp3 player anymore - you can simply buy a music phone.
Some of the top music phones at the moment are made by companies such as Nokia, Sony Ericsson, LG and Apple. Of course, the Apple iPhone has been something of a trend setter in the field and the most recent model, the 3G, combines all your telephonic needs with an iPod as well as all the music apps such as iTunes and Last.FM. However, the iPhone will set you back a few hundred quid, so if you're looking for something a little more wallet-friendly, there's the Nokia 5320 XpressMusic. This phone is around the £100 region (sim-only), and its crowning glory is a year's unlimited music downloads thanks to Nokia's Comes With Music service.
Currently, one of the best Sony Ericsson music phones on the market is the W902. It combines an excellent CyberShot 5mpx camera with a great quality mp3 player. From LG there is the
U400, a cool little mobile that has a scroll wheel like an iPod but the difference here is that you can use the wheel like a miniature turntable to scratch over any track you play on the phone's mp3 player. The phone has lots of remixes already stored in it that you can use as ringtones.
Speaking of ringtones, where are the best websites to download them from? One good site is mobiles24.com - here you will find free ringtones, games, wallpapers and screensavers as well as a whole mobile community. Another good site is myxer.com which also has many free ringtone downloads. Also polyphonicringtonez.com offers completely free downloads. Choosing different ringtones for different callers is a great way to customise your phone.
