    I don't really care for any of them. I hope Alltel expands their line of phones soon.

    The V262 for those who cannot have a camera phone in the workplace. My wife has one and it works well. Excellent performer in poor signal locations. It's slightly better than my StarTAC in the local Kroger store where the Alltel signal goes from usable to "no service" as you move farther back into the building from the main entrance.

    The Motorola V262 and V265 are proabely the best on that list. I've heard some pretty good things about the Kyocera SoHo but I just don't care much for the Kyocera brand. Stay away from the Audiovox! I've heard mostly negative things about the Audiovox 8910. I played around with the Audiovox myself and it feels cheap and has a flimsy flip on it that I think would break pretty easily.

    I would have lean toward the Motorola's although the similar versions of all those phones for Verizon I don't like.

    Don't know much about the Soho. I got the Audiovox when I resigned my contarct. I drive for a living(locally) and drove about 300 miles in the city and the country over 2 days. I missed 15 phone calls and received 4. Reception on the Audiovox is awful. I knew I had missed those calls because I got voicemail later, phone never rang! I have service everywhere I go on my delivery route. I rarely miss a call with my 262.
     
  7. The v262 or v265 are the best ones on that list from my experience.

    Not a great phone selection at all, but I guess the Motos would still be 'best' out of the ones listed IMO.

    This thread is a few months old now. Alltel has updated their phone lineup recently and they now have several new phones and discontinued the LG 5550. Below is a link to the current list of phones that Alltel sells.

  10. While not the best.. that's a whole lot better list of phones..

    Lol, I didn't even notice how old the thread was until you pointed it out.
    The lineup has indeed gotten a lot better, but it definitely needs some more work, like Darryl pointed out.

    I would recommend LG over Kyocera, Moto, or Audiovox anyday!
    For CDMA anyway...

    With our family share plan we got four Kyocera KX1s, all of which have had no problems over the past three months.

    Totally agree, v262 & v265 are both great phones. The new LG 5000 is also good in my opinion.

    I'd have to go with the Motorola's. Rancid for some reason I think you work for ALLTEL now, is it true, or am I just confused?

    I hate LG so I'll probably go with the Nokia 6255i or one of the Motorolas.
    I worked for CellularONE-Western Wireless, I wasn't divested so now I work for ALLTEL.

    So how do you like ALLTEL? Are you a customer service rep?

    So far, nothing has really changed and yes, I'm a CSR and Retention Rep. I also perform basic troubleshooting.

    Yeah, it's not a bad gig, especially considering I hated cell phones before I started working here (three years ago today... woo-hoo!) and if it wasn't for this job I never would have found WA or "met" all of you. I'd much rather be a tech support rep since I really dig on troubleshooting but finding and fixing billing issues, which I sometimes get to do, is also rewarding.

    Ironic, I know... It was never really the technology I hated, just the sort of "status-symbol" issues cell phones present and the behavior exhibited by some cell users. Now that cell phones are more or less commonplace, the "status symbol" thing isn't an issue (it's more about the phone you have, now, not just having a phone and since I've got a v600, no one can convince me they have a better phone than I do.:D ) but the behavior is still an issue. I try not to let it bother me, though. I love my job and Alltel seems like almost as good a company to work for as Western Wireless was.
