Help me find a reliable phone

Hey everyone, I'm hoping you guys can help me out here. I'm looking to buy a new cell phone and I'm not very savvy when it comes to this type of thing so please bare with me.
I just recently researched and ordered my wife a new phone. and during that little "research" process (with her help ofcourse) I realized just how much I don't know about today's cell phones and how much that they cost. I have never had any kind "extravagant phone" - if you will.
Anyhow, here in a couple of weeks I will be switching to T-mobile's 30 day unlimited everything plan($50), and I'm not quite sure on what to get that fits my price range and the features that I do and don't need. I have been searching all over the place for the last week or better, and everytime I think that I found something, I start reading reviews about it and end up changing my mind.
Please, help me out here. Obviously any unlocked phone is fine too.
Price range: Up to $160 - MAYBE $170
***Texting - I DO NOT text
***Facebook or any other social networks - NO! Never have, never will.
***Music - Doesn't have to be able to hold a ridiculous amount, just enough. Maybe 2-4 gig.
***Video - Prefer it to be able to play youtube video's(AKA Adobe flash compatible).
***5 pixel camera - I defiantly do need this for work. I'm tired of having to use other peoples phones when trying to take a good picture of a trial job to send it in for spec sheets.
***Able to send pictures.
***QWERTY - Preferably, but not a "need" for sure.
***Internet - not just HTML
***Games - Not very important at all, maybe a few here and there.
***O/S - Preferably Android 2 or Windows 6.5:
If anyone at all can help out here I would very much appreciate it. I'm tired of banging my head against the wall here trying to figure it all out. If there is anything else that I forgot to mention that will help you help me, please tell me.
I have to go to bed right now, but I will check back tomorrow night. Thanks in advance.
