If you need a simple, no-frills phone that keeps you in touch, the Motorola C155 deserves a serious look. The compact, easy-to-use design is jeans pocket friendly, while still managing to include a color display and polyphonic ringtones.
The C155 follows the tried and true Motorola candybar style with an internal antenna -- so there's nothing to snag or break off. The 96 x 64 color display supports 4,096 colors, and a standard hands-free headphone jack is also provided. Most of the phone's features and on-screen menus are controlled by a five-way center button on the handset's control pad.
The C155 supports storage of phone numbers and contacts on an internal, removable SIM card. Choose from 20 built-in polyphonic ringtones, or use the vibrating alert when you want to be discreet. You can even create your own custom ringers with the included ringtone composer.

If you need basic messaging capabilities, the C155 has you covered as support is built-in for sending and receiving SMS text messages. iTap text entry, a technology that makes it easier for people to enter words and text on handsets, is built-into the unit-- a plus for text messaging users.
A number of handy software tools are bundled with the C155 including an alarm clock and a calculator with currency converter.
The C155 has plenty of fun built in, thanks to three built-in games. Now there's something to help you pass the time during your commute on the train or the bus! The phone also features customizable wallpaper graphics so you can dress it up to suit your style.
