I'm currently using a Nokia 3285 on Verizon in Maryland. This phone has been replaced once already under warranty (dropped calls after dialing), now the new one has other problems at only six months old. I hate the action and feel of the 3285. I have a 6185, it seems to have better sound quality, button feel, and overall better build quality. Verizon tells me it is not compatible, however I found it on their website in a web search. Was there a TDMA AND CDMA version (not sure which Verizon uses?) or is it really not compatible? The phone label says 'Model 6185 Type NSD-3AX'. I'd love to use this phone to replace the 3285, Verizon/Nokia no longer offers anything else that I like at all. What says ye experts?
