I really like my SonyEricsson S700i. The screen is absolutely huge  
and, as with flip-phones, the keypad is protected from accidental key  
presses. The UI on SE's phones has always struck me as particularly  
well refined and easy to use so I've stuck with them for years.
iSync, SMS from Address Book, bluetooth file exchange to and from my  
Mac works as well, maybe better, than the T68i it replaced. I also  
use Salling Clicker to control VLC, iTunes and PowerPoint, and the  
S700i has a HID-based bluetooth remote built in that you can  
customise up the wazoo - I've only just started playing with that one.
