    Interesting - my daughter has VZ with the same VX4400 that I have. She
    lives in SF (mission district) and gets pretty good reception. BUT, she
    works in Berkley and signal strength is spotty with a great number of
    dropped calls and lots of voice breakup.

    Do you think the Nokia would be noticeably better at holding a signal?

    That's because she works in the Soviet Socialist Republic of Bizerkeley!
    ;-)

    I've been using my AT&T Nokia 6160 TDMA phones since 1999. The Nokia 6185
    is a newer CDMA phone. They are both older models.

    I've been told that the 6185 is very inferior to the 6160 but it sure
    works better around my neighborhood.

    I should be receiving a "brand new" Nokia 3285 phone tomorrow or Friday.
    It's supposed to be a better phone than either of the other 2 models.
    We'll see.

    I've had good AT&T service in the city and down 101, out in the Walnut
    Creek/Concord area and as I said in the "Yuppie Commute" lanes.

    AT&T's service in the East Bay, 101 North of SF and South of SJ, on 17
    towards Santa Cruz and all along the coast is very spotty at best.

    I'm looking forward to trying Verizon around Northern CA, plus I'll be in
    Chicago and Milwaukee in a few weeks, so.... we'll see.
