Hi this occured to my mind when i was watching an American movie today where the hero was using a flip model mobile..i have seen many english movies and mostly i have the people using only flip phones in those mobiles..i wonder if flip phone is that famous in america and would like to know what phone you are using and why you preferred it than the other two types...?

I have a candy bar phone :) It's slim and it's very simple. I like it very much because it fits well in my pants pocket - not as bulky as most flip and slide phones. Although because it's narrow and slim, it doesn't have too many features - but I'm happy with it as long as it performs the basics: send and receive SMS and MMS and make and receive calls and play music :) Thanks for the response on my discussion!

Oh thats great...i also like slim candy bar phones but the thing is that they tend to break when you put up too much pressure on them while sitting..thats the obivious reason that i quiet dislike the slim candybar phones..other than that i really love them even though i have a slider phone which really is the best thing that you could have at the moment...anyway thanks for your reaponse also and hereafter dont say thanks since there should be no thanks between friends....if you are gonna say thanks for a friend then you are going to do it for your life time...

I would love a flip phone simply because my phone turns on or off or even dials sometimes when I keep it in my purse! I have my sons old phone since we purchased him a flip phone for Christmas. I really don't use my phone very often. In fact, I really saw no need for one until recently. My husband does not have one as his work would then follow him home!!

I just have a cheap prepaid cell phone that I am using. It is a Nokia. I use it mainly for sending text messages only. I have never had any other kinds of phones.

I am using a candybar type cellphone. I am using a Nokia 6680. It is pretty old because it is already three years old. I have dropped the phone a few times and it is still working pretty well without any defects. I guess candybar phones are the most durable in a sense that it only has one major part of the body unlike in flip and slide up phones.

Ya candybar phone have a clean and clear advantage over the other phones and i would like to have a candybar phone but than i like compact things and i prefer the slider or flip since they would be half the size of the candy bar phones and they could easily fit into our pocket...

That is the advantage in slide up and flip phones. Just take care of it then your phone will be fine.

the flip phone is very popular in the USA but i personally have a bar phone since i got a blackberry and they only have one flip type in the USA and i didnt like it.. usually i would only buy flips because they are so much smaller but i got a tiny blackberry that was around the same size as my old flip so im happy

Oh thats really great that you own a blackberry..i really love blackberry phones but the only thing that is still stoping me is the size factor which is too big to carry around...here we have only the big phones that blackberry used to sell and not the SMALL PHONES...anyway congrats for having such a great phone and thanks for the info that you gave us...

Hi, I owed both Flip and Candy Bar Cell Phones and I liked both of them. I never had the Slider but I don't think I'll be buying one because I don't really like it. If you want a bigger screen to look at then the Flip is better but I think that the Candy Bar is a lot faster to use but some has a small screen because the key pad is taking a lot of space. Have a good day :)

Ya thats right at the pros and cons that you have given for the candy bar phone and i think that its better with the other two and slider is also good only since i have a big screened sony ericsson slider phone...
