    >Can anyone tell me the Difference between the Motorola v60c and v60i?

    I think I had both with at&t they stopped selling one and replaced it with the
    other. There were software differences including one having a calculator the
    other didn't and some other features. The biggest problem I had with the V60s
    was antenna breakage. It is such a problem that Motorola has (had) a special
    page on their website for this problem.

    I think that on Verizon is is simply the addition of 3G voice.

  4. The v60i has a couple of games built in too!

  5. The V60i has changeable covers (front and back), updated software with games
    & calculator, and an improved antenna that is less prone to being bent or
    broken if you sit on it. I've been using V60s for a few years and have never
    had an antenna problem- even on an original V60c.

    I also find the V60i has louder earpiece volume but you can't record voice
    memos with the flip closed where you could on the V60c. To my ears, the
    sound quality on the V60i is unmistakably better than on the V60c so perhaps
    the codec was improved too.

    There are some nice covers available from Motorola and if you buy one from a
    reseller (like 1800mobiles.com) it comes with a smoked metal cover which is
    about the best one of the bunch.

    For a classy, non-color phone with long battery life and "just in case"
    analog mode, you can't beat this phone.

    The v.60i is aGPS-enabled and has interchangeable faceplates. It also is
    loaded with vocoder issues that make it sound like crap compared to the
    v.60c.

    Still no 1xRTT in the v.60i, AFAIK. Could be wrong though.

    My v60c had those too after I did a software upgrade.

    I thought the V.60c sounded like crap. I can only imagine how the V.60i
    sounds. Oh .. I had lots of echos with my V.60c (and I had a warrantee
    swap, it happened on both of them). I moved over to Voicestream for awhile
    and they had the best sound quality out there, but it was horrible for
    others to listen to me in a noisy environment. Now I am with Sprint using
    the Samsung A500 and, while the voice quality is not quite as good [at the
    earpiece] as it was with Voicestream (Nokias ... uck!), it is much better
    than any phone I had with Verizon (or Airtouch). Moral of the story, if you
    want good sound ... perhaps consider the Samsung offerings for Verizon.

    thanks all for the input. is there a small phone with Verizon that would
    be better in terms of voice quality?

    Aside from the v.60c that burst into flames one morning while charging, I
    had no problems with that series of phones.

  13. I don't think there is GPS in the V60i-- that's in the V60x.

    but teh A530 doesn't have analog. i would want that for when i travel to
    fringe areas...
     
  15. You're comparing GSM with CDMA and yes, GSM phones do sound better. I've had
    a dozen of them from Ericsson, Motorola, Nokia, and SonyEricsson-- they all
    have better tonal quality when compared to CDMA (Verizon & Sprint). Echoes
    are mostly a system issue and not the handset. Samsung does make nice CDMA
    handsets but I've found the menus are not as efficient as they could be for
    the majority of the phone's use, but that is a matter of personal
    preference.

    My wife has a V60c that sounds like crap but she won't let me upgrade it. My
    V60i sounds great.

    Why, so you can have static on top of your weak signal instead of a
    graceful cutout?

    No, so I can actually have service in a fringe area as opposed to not
    having any at all.

    Funny, I've always found my new digital-only handset performs MUCH better
    than the older tri-modes in that situation... try one, you'll see.

    you don't get any service at all if you only have a digital phone but
    are in an area serviced with analog only. duh...

    my ski lodge cabin is only serviced with analog and my tri mode phone
    works perfectly well there as it fallsback to analog when there is no
    digital signal. a digital only phone would be 100% useless there.

    You said FRINGE AREA, not ANALOG-ONLY AREA. Duh.
