    OK so my Nokia 6310 is getting old and I am ready for a change. Having used Nokia for ever, I am happy to stick with them but am quite prepared to consider the options if there is something else out there worth looking at.

    Must come with bluetooth and GPRS
    Must have the option of a fully wired non bluetooth car kit
    Must NOT have a camera
    Must have at least 6 hours talktime without the need of a huge extra battery
    Must be tri band

    I don't want one of these clamshell phones as I think they look silly.
    I don't want changable face plates

    I will be on this phone for at least 4 hours a day (often double that) so I need a reliable, solid business phone.

    Ideas?

    Nokia 6230 would be the one to have if it wasnt for the camera! - Does everything you'll need and more besides.

    Maybe you could just put some tape over the lens ;)

    I agree with Adrenochrome. If your 6310 is really old it'll be gold and black - the current model is silver and black, much more elegant. I have tried many, many phones and the 6310, while slightly cumbersome, really is the best by far.

    I agree on the 6310i (I have a silver one) but mine is getting old and battered now and as it is now a discontinued model, although I can still get them, I am not going to buy what is still a discontinued phone.

    So moving with the times, it's time for a new phone but I am not finding it easy at all.

    Discontinued? It's still current on the Nokia UK website. However, if you're seeking something really cool I suggest you have a look at the Motorola.com website, where there's a forthcoming new phone that seems absolutely superb (available in UK around Oct/Nov I think). It's called the RAZ3 or something like that - there's a link on the homepage. It does have a camera unfortunately but all the best of the new generation phones seem to have one. Declaration of interest: the company I work for does some of the advertising for Motorola.
