    Unless you can find an antenna that plugs into the accessory port the
    answer is no. I checked the manual also and there is no mention of an
    external antenna.

  2. If there is a professional install handsfree kit for it, there should be
    an antenna port, probably on the back under a rubber plug. You might check
    http://www.cellantenna.com or http://www.canyonriver.com to see if they have
    the adapter cable for it.

  3. Jim,

    What you might do is take a look at some other Motorolas and see if the
    connector matches any of them. They use several styles, unfortunately. If it
    matches one, you might try ordering an adapter cable for that phone and see
    if it works. Or you can wait until someone releases one. I did just check
    the Motorola site and they don't list the professional install kit for the
    265, but that usually lags behind the introduction of a phone.. Wish I could
    be more help! Good luck!

    I just compared the fitting on my V265 (who knew it was buried there?)
    to what looks like the exposed fitting on a V60 and the V265 appears
    smaller.

  5. If I can remember, I'll compare my T720 to my wife's V60i. I just looked
    at one of the company 120's and the connector looks the same as the T720,
    but I know that Canyon River sells a different cable for those two phones.
    It might just have to do with the shape of the phone, but I'll see if the
    cable I have for the T720 will fit the 120. I know the 120 one has a longer
    plug.
