Default Looking for a new GSM Phone

I'm looking for a new GSM phone. I've had a Samsung E105 (Loved it) and a Razr V3 (Original one, too slow, don't like it anymore..)

So i'm looking for a Samsung, Sony Ericsson, Nokia, or LG preferably. Open to all designs, flip, candy bars, slider, or spinner. Requirements = Bluetooth, camera 1megapixel or higher. Reception is bad at my apartment, so it needs to be able to pull in a weak signal well too.

Been eyeing the Sony W600i, a few samsungs.. But need a good place to buy, or a good deal. And i don't want to spend more then 150-200 or so.

dont look at a Nokia 6102. Very fragile, very low volume. Stay Away!

I've got the LG enV, and I love it. Auto-focus 2.0mp camera w/video, qwerty board, bluetooth, mobile web, broadband, music features(stereo speakers!), MicroSD card slot, good menu layout. I've on Verizon, so I've got the V-cast music/video stuff too. Haven't had any reception problems at all. A little bigger than most phones, but it packs a lot of stuff. I've also got a 2G micro SD card for it, but that'* an add-on, and costs a pretty penny. Phone was $209 before a $50 rebate, card was $90, IIRC.

All the RAZR needs is a new battery and it'* like new. The firmware is one of the recent revisions, i doubt more then 1 or 2 have been released since then.

I'm also looking at going with a SERO plan with sprint. $30, 500 minutes, 7pm night/weekends, Unlimited Vision or Power Vision. KILLER deal i found online, and the Sanyo 8400 would be great, but i'm used to having the peace of mind known as T-mobile customer service, not the hit men that Sprint hire for their CSR'*.
