I am not a fan of pure touch screen interface. I like buttons.

No, not really. I have an Envy2 right now. I really just use my phone for calls and texts, not much more. I am thinking about getting the Alias2. I liked the Alias, but the first design was a bit cramped and texting was difficult. The new model improves on all these areas. I miss using a flip style phone to answer and hang up, just close when done!

The Razr is an example of a great flip phone. I've used one for years. At one point I had two, but now I have just the one and some other types.

Yes, I loved my Razr. When it was time to replace it I got the Alias because I wanted a qwerty keyboard, but I also wanted a Razr style flip phone. I used the Alias for about 2 months and upgraded to the Envy2. I started texting a whole lot more because the keyboard is a good size. Now I find myself really missing the flip style. The Alias2 seems to be my perfect phone, I just haven't made the switch yet.

The Alias2 looks like a really great phone, MrQ1701. Neat features, too. I hope you enjoy it once you get it.

I just switched from a button phone (the Razr V8) to a touch interface phone. The Samsung Tocco. The interface was clunky at first but after a few days it became easier. I think button phones will ultimately become a thing of the past.

I liked the look of the iphone but in the UK it's only available on one network on a specific call plan that's more expensive than I can justify given my usage rate. If it comes down in price and ends up more widely available I would consider it.

It's good it now has video record and 3G (shameless omissions from the first generation model). I know three people who have one. One loves it, and the other two think it's better for it's multifunctionality but as a phone, a little poor.

The second gen also had 3G, I think. Didn't it?

This third version, the 3G S, has the video capability as a new feature, I agree. I'm thinking of buying it as another line. But as with you, I have reservations about the continuing costs. One of my existing cell phones already has video capability.

It might have done. I'm not 100% sure myself.

For myself, I only really have need for one phone so the one I just got will do me for a while yet, but when the time comes in the future to upgrade my phone etc I'd still take a look and see what plans are on offer around the iphone.
