    Introduction

    Most people think of a cellular phone just being a communications tool. But then there are the other people, people like me, who think that just about exactly the opposite. In my opinion, a cell phone is a gadget to play games, surf the internet, and show off with, as well as the occasional phone call or two.

    I've been through three different cell phones before I met up with the Sony Ericsson T300. I started out with a Motorola Startac, but I quickly threw it out after it broke in half. I then bought myself a Motorola v120c. I had no big problems with that one, but the lack of cool features such as games turned me off. I then switched to T-Mobile from Verizon Wireless, because T-Mobile offered a World Plan, letting me use my phone all around the world. When starting my plan, I chose the business-like Samsung Q105. Too bad that phone had almost no features. The only thing that really stood out with this phone was the included data cable to sync my phone with a PC. Otherwise, it was very bland.

    About six months into owning the Q105, I got fed up with it and sold it on eBay for $75. With that money, I bought a Sony Ericsson T300, also on eBay, brand new for just $145. It was money well spent.

    This is the first phone I've owned with such an extensive feature list. Of course, the most noticeable thing about this phone is the color screen, and in my opinion, the most useful and fun one too. But, there are plenty of other things that makes this phone worth writing about.
