    If you need analog - 4400.
    Otherwise most likely the 4500.

    If you have a National Single Rate Plan you have no option for the 4500
    because tri-mode is required by NSR.

    What about Americas Choice? Can a 4500 be used then? Isn't that a national
    plan also?

    Yes. The difference is, with NSR you don't pay for roaming, so VZW wants
    to make sure you'll use their preferred partner whenever possible. If
    you're someplace where the only native/extended coverage is analog, and
    you're on an NSR plan, Verizon would have to eat the digital roaming
    costs if they let you use a digital-only phone. But if you're on an AC
    plan, they can pass the cost on to you.

    There are differnet types of National Plans. National Single Rate is
    defined as:

    "Perfect if you talk and travel around the country. Domestic roaming and
    domestic long distance included."

    Yes, America's Choice can use an all digital phone (like the VX6000 or new
    4500)..

    The AC is not the same as the National Single Rate Plan. It's close, but not
    the same (and the National Single Rate Plan usually costs more)..

    Close in what? Certainly not roam-free coverage <G>!

    This is very hard to answer. Clearly, both LG and Verizon felt there were
    advantages to the 4500 or they wouldn't have introduced it.

    It seems to me that going from the 4400 to the 4500, you lose analogue and gain
    dial-by-digit or a speakerphone.

    :shrug:

    Depends on your.

    It's also a mistake to talk about RF signal between one and the other, I think.
    There's no substitute for using your 15 days to try the phones out where you
    will need to use them the most.
