    I started another thread on why can't I get a signal on a new Sprint account, and it was suggested to use a different phone(Sprint). That was just a tiny bit better, but still not good enough to make a call.

    If I was to keep Verizon service, what would be the phone I should try out? I have an old dual band Star-Tac.

    Definetly think about getting the Mot 270c. I live in a fringe area and most of my friends use Verizon and everyone dropps calls in my house with the exception of 2 friends that have 270c's they never have a dropped call at my place. As soon as I can cough up the 200 bucks to buy the phone out of contract I'm getting it.

    Try the Kyocera 2235, maybe... I've heard its reception is really good. I don't live in a fringe area, so I don't know exactly how good their fringe reception is, but I can make perfectly clear calls with 1 bar of signal... The phone is also reasonably priced and packed with features. [​IMG]

    and I do agree, I've known Motorolas to have good reception qualities.

    My Samsung T300 seems to get very good signal in weak areas(much better than my old Kyocera 2135). Might try looking into the Samsung Verizon phones.

    I use to work for verizon and Kyocera make the cdma chips that are in the phones. Maybe it's sheer luck but, Kyocera phones also seemed to get the best signal strength. The only downside to their phones is a really short battery life. (you also can't plug the phone in and talk and charge)

    The good old bag phone is the best. I borrowed my friends old Bell Atlantic Mobile bag phone for a while to fool around with it. While in my basement I got 3 bars, yes it is analog but still, I get no signal with other Verizon phones, none with Voicstream, and 1-2 with ATT.

    Just thought you may be interested. [​IMG]
