    Dan,

    You are everywhere on this board. You are the man. I think SunCom really owes you for your presence on this board. So, is going from the 5165 to the 6360 like going from a Toyota Corolla to a Toyota Avalon? The phone sounds great and I can wait until mine gets here in 3-5...thanks again for all your help.

    heh you are welcome. I've never used the 6360 so I can't say, but everything I have heard about it has been positive. Let us know how you like your phone [​IMG]

    Really digging the phone. When I went to have it activated, several customers kept asking the rep if I was bringing it back because I think that they can't keep them in the store.

    I had a 5165 and now have a 6360.

    The biggest differences are:
    1) the physical size, shape, and weight.
    It's lighter, thinner, and less of a brick. It's actually lighter than my 3360, and barely an inch longer.

    2) the software and controls.
    The 6360 has a separate volume rocker on the left side. I hated trying to turn up the volume on my 5165 after logging into voicemail-- since I entered my pin, the up/down key on the front would just move the cursor around, not change the volume.
    Also, the 6360 has dedicated call/hangup buttons and two soft buttons, where the 5165 has the single "soft" button and the "C" button. I find this to be a superior way of navigating the menus.

    3) My car charger, wall charger, and headset from my 5165 still seem to work. I haven't tried it in the hands-free car setup my friend has for his 5165. We'll see.

    I find the 6360 to be better than my old 5165 in almost every respect, and it has so far been well worth the out-of-pocket upgrade cost.

    Biggest advantages of the 6360...

    1.) Battery life...It uses the LiOn from thhe 8260 and lasts foever.
    2.) A decent voice dialer that actually works.
    3.) A bigger display thats easier to read.
    4.) Better reception. Despite the internal antenna, I get RSSI numbers that are 2-4 lower than my 3360 got sitting right next to each other.
    5.) All the 5100/6100 accessories...except for the case....are interchangable.
