None of the phones my researcher suggested is white. Although that criteria was a "strong 1st choice" of mine, rather than a "must-have" feature, one suggested white phone would have been very helpful. The non-paid answer turned out to be a much better one (I wound up buying that one which rabidroach-ga suggested).

Hi, Try the AT&T E5965C. It meets all of your "must" requirements, costs $140 according to bestbuy.com (http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=6359102&type=product&productCategoryId=cat06007&id=1076628975666) Also, the Motorola MD761 has many of the features you outlined above, plus its only $99 (http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=6825812&type=product&productCategoryId=cat06007&id=1091101680661) --Hope that helps!
