What is the best VZ Phone to get -- Excluding the v60p

Discussion in 'alt.cellular.verizon' started by Nextel Rocks, Oct 4, 2003.

    I want to get a VZ phone but would like some input on which one of their
    phones is the best for the money. Looking for a small flip.

    Thanks. I just bought the T730 and am now wondering if I should have gotten
    a different one.

    thanks

    Well I went from the StarTac 7868W to the LG VX4400 and its the best
    phone I have used so far. And I have used quite a few. From the NEC
    Bag phones, Nokia, Sony, Qualcomm, 2 different Motorola phones (old
    grey flip & StarTac), and a couple others over the years which names
    escape me. This starting back when cellular started. Cellular One
    (Albany Telephone Company) I was the 403 customer and stayed with them
    for many a year. (They had terrible billing problems and after so many
    years of calling to get my bill fixed) I Then went the route of Bell
    Atlantic Mobile, Nynex, Verizon and what ever name they change into in
    the future :)

    The 4400 is an excellent phone as are most LG phones.

    I don't know anything about the T730 or its price, but I picked up an LG
    VX10 from VZW for $70 ($170 - 50 rebate - 50 discount (w/ 2-year agmt.)).

    Great audio quality and reception.. I don't like its menu system much, and
    the buttons are too recessed into the keypad making it a bit harder to
    push them.. but it's small, sturdy, has good battery life, and sounds
    great.

    What do you want a phone to do? What else besides make calls? How small
    is small enough?

    I want good user friendly software including a smartly designed contact
    list, easy access to multiple phone book entries, easy text messaging,
    ability to easily plug phone numbers from phone book into "send to" lists
    for texts and email.

    I have all that with the Samsung A310. It's almost perfect. I say almost
    because the ONLY thing it doesn't do that I really wish it did was show time
    in 24 hour format (military time) as most phones do. I hate am/pm.

    Personally I like almost anything from motorola. If you can hold out
    till probably after Christmas, they might have a new phone coming out to
    fit your bill.

    The LG 4400 is much better than the Motorola. If you read this newsgroup
    regularly, you would know this.

    You would know that some people claim it is. I've yet to hear someone
    who knows what he's talking about explain exactly why that is, though.

    I'll pass. I went through three horrible Motorola T730s in two weeks before
    getting my A310 which I absolutely love. Each of the 730s were crap, some
    had problems the others didn't. All of them dropped calls constantly, would
    not ring 25% of the time, headset volume was pitiful and the huge color
    display would drain a full battery on 45 minutes if you're doing a lot of
    texting, email etc. And more...

    My dad's got a T720 and hates it, so I'm not surprised about the 730 not
    being that great either. I had the old star tac anolog, and now I'm
    using the i90 from Nextel. Love both phones, battery life is great for
    calling. I use about 1200 minutes a month and I can get a battery to
    last me about 2 days without charging. One of the reasons I do like my
    Motorolas though is cause they can take a beating. Strayed away from
    them once, and the phone just couldn't hack my lifestyle. I used to
    work factory security and the motorolas held up. Sorry about your
    problems with the 730 maybe they will get it right in the next model?

    Regarding the LG VX10. I've been informed that Verizon is no longer
    using providing the LG VX10. This is bad news if , like me , you have
    standardized on this model for your organization and have a large
    investment in accessories. Granted, cell phone models and styles
    change faster than PCs, even so, I'm now looking to purchase about a
    dozen to use as replacements for when the displays get crunched. Does
    anyone know if there are replacement LCD displays for the VX10 ?

    Under the battery, where the Motorola says CHINA, speaks volumes.

    And the LG probably says Korea - what's the difference?
