Flip phones certainly are convenient: they come with their own built-in carrying case, after all. You just flip the phone closed, and, voila, no accidental key presses and no scratched screens. Flip phones also offer a small, compact case -- the perfect size for slipping in a pocket. And, perhaps best of all, flips phones are often cheap, if not free with a service contract.

But you don't have to sacrifice a full feature set to get the convenience of a flip phone. Today's best flip phones do a lot more than just make calls. Most offer text and picture messaging, and many check e-mail or surf the Web. Some even come with full-fledged smartphone operating systems. Check out this gallery of today's best flip phones to find out which one is the perfect phone for you.
