    I am able to upgrade to a new phone. I want just basic stuff, in order of importance:
    1. Excellent RF
    2. voice quality
    3. speakerphone
    4. battery life

    Any help or suggestions is highly appreciated.

    Wow, it's really jumping in here with all these answers. Maybe if I narrow it down for you guys and let you know the phones I am considering and which one would be the best for what I need.

    LgVX8350
    Moto W755
    LgVX5400
    Moto W385
    LG chocolate
    Samsung SCH-u550

    Again, just the 4 points that I listed which of these would be the best phone for me? Thanks

    My husband has a Moto w385....he hates cell phones (which is why I have a BlackBerry and he doesn't! ;) ), but the reception, sound quality and basic features are pretty solid....

    the only disadvantage I have seen on a lot of the motorolas is that they don't have the greatest battery life...don't get me wrong, I had a customer the other day that had a 385 that said his battery would last him a week straight (extremely little use of the phone) in standby. But I have always loved motorola's durability.

    I had the LG8300, the older model of the 8350. I didn't like it...but I think I might have received a lemon and did everything possible to get it traded in...but to no avail. I've heard the 8350 was a better phone than its predecessor, but I would never go with an LG again.
