After my recent run in with eBay, I now know better about making sure the phone works on the correct frequency for your provider. So now that I know what bands it has to have, I need to pick out a decent phone. Since its Christmas, I figured this would be the best time to get my girlfriend a new phone since her's is always cutting out and disconnecting. It was one of those free LG's you get when you sign a new contract. Anyways, I've been looking around and was curious about these phones: Motorolla v220 Motorolla v400 Motorolla v600 NEC 535 Samsung SGH-X495 A wide range, I know. I'm looking for performance/reliability first, features a distant second. The calling area is anywhere between Erie, PA and Western NY. Any help is always appreciated.
