    The Nokia 2865i finally arrived yesterday! It seems to be a very user friendly phone. The bluetooth, infared and radio are great features. The screen is QUITE nice, the size is great, it is lightweight (hardly know it's in pocket), the ringtones are nice. It seems to be a great little phone, very value oriented. With the power saver on, the battery life is outstanding. It has the options of looking at SID, PRL, systems, etc without having to know code sequences like the 6015i. It has done WELL with reception, but this weekend it will be tested in areas of very poor signal. I have noticed that with both the 2865i and 6015i in field test, the dB are similar, but in semi-fringe areas the 6015i will show -85, the 2865i -101. Funny, it hasn't hindered call quality. And in the semi-fringe areas, it has worked great. I am wondering if it is a feature that saves power on the 2865i because the manual says it only keeps enough dB to operate well. But, it will get a good test this weekend.

    SO, is there a better handset currently offered that possibly has better signal qualities? I stopped at an alltel store with that question. The reps said a RAZR is stronger, along with a couple other moto suggestions. I can get a RAZR for $35. Is it worth it? Any other models to suggest? If dB is an issue, I will get another 6015i. How do the 6015i and Moto V710 compare with regard to dB in poor signal areas? THANKS!!

    The Moto E815 is also a reception hog as well... Most people tend to do well with this phone.

    I love the razr. I have had the V3c for over a year and have had great service out of it and you can put it anywhere. The e815 is great also but a little on the large size.

    I have had the 2865i for about a month, and side by side, it does almost as well as my E815 and RAZR (and by almost, I mean I've had only one occurance where it could not place a call, and to be honest, I can't be sure it wasn't just a freak occurance). It is not quite up to 6015i standards, simply because of no external antenna, but EXACTLY on par with the antenna down.

    EDIT: I keep both my RAZR and the 2865i with me all of the time (work and pleasure) except in work where I can't have a camera. If I can't make a call between them, than I am screwed. :)
