    Hey Guys

    I am currently using an e71, a phone Nokia released back in 2008. I am looking to upgrade to an Android phone, and here are some of my requirements -

    I am on AT&T and can not switch. However, all the phones I have used, include my current e71 are unlocked. I can not bear to see my phone locked down by AT&T with all their custom crap. Therefore the phone should work on AT&T 3G bands here in the US and should be available unlocked.

    It should have a front facing camera. I use Fring on my e71 and video chat with my parents all the time over both 3.5G and wifi, and I LOVE it. This is by the far the only feature holding me back.

    I would prefer a physical qwerty like the e71 but a virtual one is ok too, but the camera is a must.

    Any suggestions?

    Exactly !!! :(

    It's just funny that Fring would develop video chat for Android, but there isn't a whole lot of hardware that could benefit from it.

    If I can get Android onto my Nokia e71, that would be the ultimate dream come true EVER. I guess I can settle for a smaller dream come true when the iPhone4 allows Fring to use its front facing cam.

    The Euro Galaxy S (which has an ffc) will work on AT&T's 1900MHz 3G bands. The caveat is that AT&T've been doing a bunch of 850MHz roll-outs, so it may not work everywhere.
