    The 3589i uses an internal battery with a spring clip. It is not
    possible for the loose battery problem to occur. On the downside,
    changing batteries went from easy to much more of a pain.

    There is no other phone currently available from Verizon that can
    compare with the 3589i for signal quality. In some circumstances it
    outperforms my VX4400. If you like Nokia phones you can't go wrong
    with the 3589i.

    I have had great luck with this phone. It's a very basic phone that suits my needs perfectly. I am rarely w/o a signal when others w/ Verizon in the same area are. It has been dropped more times than I would care to remember; once in a sink of water! Took it apart. Let it sit for 24 hours. Reassembled it. It fired right up. Didn't even lose my phone book. Best phone I have owned.
