    I use my phone only for calling. I want to get whatever current
    Verizon phone has the best reception in buildings, fringe areas, etc.
    I'm not interested in any other features. I don't care if the phone is
    a flip or candy bar style.

    Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Nokia 3589i. I bought one this week. In my office 75 feet from
    nearest window on ground floor, I get 1-2 bars digital and better than
    90% of incoming calls ring thru with this phone. Old Startac 7868
    which replaced in same setting, sometimes weak digital signal,
    sometimes analog, sometimes no service, and calls seldom rang thru.
    Tried LG/LX 4400B which was worse signal and returned to VZW store
    after one day. The Nokia 3589i has both an internal AND an external
    antenna, not something you find in cell phones often. Other places
    where had weak reception with Startac, this phone outperforms
    receptionwise.

    Kyocera 2325 (Black and white screen, basic no-frills phone, but inexpensive
    and functional.)

  5. I love my Motorola v.60s. I am not sure if they are still selling it,
    but I have not run into an area yet where I didn't have a signal (digital or
    analog). It's basically the v.60p without the push-to-talk feature. Solid
    performing phone and it even has a speakerphone on it that works VERY well.
    I have been very happy with it. Don't think that I will be upgrading to any
    thing anytime soon even when my contract is up in about 7 months.
