Default New phone time!

I am currently with AT&T Wireless, and am faced with a choice. The very last day of warranty, my phone died. I currently have the AT&T Quickfire, and hated it from day 1. The first one I got started restarting itself every time I tried to fire up the web browser 2 weeks in. The next one lasted 10 months, but was plagued with touch screen issues, as well as general usability concerns. Finally was able to get it replaced, and 1 day before the warranty expired, the touchscreen quits responding all together. They have allowed me to select a comparable phone, and presented me with the following list:

LG GT365
LG FS360 <it may be a k5360, I will have to double check if necessary>
LG GU295
Nokia 6790
Samsung E777
Samsung A797
Samsung A697
Sony Ericsson W518A
Pantach P7000
Pantach P7040
Pantach P9020

I don't want another disaster <IE Quickfire> so I am looking to you all. I would love WiFi capabilities, and open source firmware would be a plus too, especially if the phone can benefit from it. I would love bluetooth data transfer, and qwerty keyboard. Touch screen is a nice plus too. Any experience on any of these phones, any votes, or informed opinions? I will be doing my own research as well, and would like to hear what you guys have to say too.

Do not, I repeat, DO NOT get a Samsung phone, I have had about three, and hated them all. I love Samsung for everything else, but I HATE their phones. Oh yeah, go iPhone!

Right now I am torn between the Pantech P7000 and the Nokia 6790, and I am limited only to the phones on the list.
