    Only had it for a few days....phone's nice, very small/compact. The
    menu system is pretty easy to navigate to configure the various options
    on the phone.

    Signal strength seems pretty good, but I haven't talked on it enough to
    get a better idea of the phone in different locations.

    Will let you know more as I use the phone more!!!

    Actually, I had this phone, and I had to take it back because Pix
    Messaging did not work, it has now been recalled for software updates.
    Too bad, it was a nice phone, and now I am stuck w/ the 6000, which
    stinks.

    I've tried the t720, and have the lg 4400. I finally changed from my old
    Moto Startac to the 8900 because of its superior reception to all, good
    battery life and reasonable menus. I've not encountered any software
    problems. So far its been a steady very dependable phone. The EC/IO
    (~S/N ratio) is superior to the lg 4400 as well.

    Hope this helps.

    I got my 8900 on Tuesday and have been using it quite a bit and have not had
    a problem either, Battery life seems great and the phone has some normal
    ringers and they are loud, The earpiece volume is very high I have to turn
    it down half way or it's to loud, The screen is large and bright and the
    speaker phone seems to work pretty well, I think I'm gonna keep this one.

  6. Got my CDM8900 Friday1-2, menu button was dead by sat and waiting for
    replacement. Sound quality is great (voice). Excellent internal screen.
    Easy navigation. Screen is bigger than vx6000. Easy to read.

    One fly in the ointment.... The external screen is almost unreadable. It
    really SUCKS! Very dim and fine text. The lg 6000 external is is MUCH
    better. If you need reading glasses you can forget about reading the 8900
    external lcd unless the light is real good. What was verizon/audiovox
    thinking? The address book does an alphabetical search. My old TP 2200
    address book does a string search which was real nice when searching.

    Regarding the external lcd, I had to return my 8900 to swap with new
    one. I would set the contrast to 5, it would look good, but if I
    powered off, the contrast would be dim again (even though the contrast
    setting said 5). They swapped the phone no questions asked, even well
    beyond the 15 day return period. This phone works just fine! Suggest
    you do the same if you havn't already tried setting the contrast.
