SCHa350 vs VX4400?

Discussion in 'alt.cellular.verizon' started by Louise, Jun 17, 2004.

  1. In my view, the 4400 was the best plain old phone Verizon had (for business
    use mainly).

    Now I have switched to the Nokia 3589i as our corporate standard. It has
    great signal characteristics like the 4400, but it is a bar phone which to
    some people is less desirable.
