Verizon's phones...

Discussion in 'alt.cellular.verizon' started by Michael, Jan 2, 2004.

  1. I've used the Nokia 5185 and the Nokia 3285 with great success. I never
    considered these to be lesser phones in any way. I use the Motorola 270c
    much more now only due to specific features I use on the 270c.

    Verizon sent me a V60s. I should activate it and try it.

    From my experiences, Nokia is is a GSM phone which can only be used on a GSM network ( Cingular, T-mobile, etc) The user interface on their phone are very easy to use, but if you use another phone, it can be just as easy to manage.

    Whether you want a GSM or CDMA is up to you. Both have their goods/bads. I feel that the CDMA phones are more reliable with signal and not having a flooded traffic time.

    You are right saying it depends where you live. But remember the combo is the phone as well as its service. Most people now are worried about form factor and a low res camera. Personally I am concerned with ease of use, form factor, and most importantly SIGNAL!

    Thats just my .02

    That's one reason why I went with one (lg 4400) this time. It's also easier
    to stuff into a pocket, and to keep the keys/display clean/safe without
    a case.
