My Startac has finally broke (case cracked and sometimes works...sometimes not). I have been holding onto it as a Verizon tech one time told me that it worked better in the boondocks than most of the newer ones and it was a tri-mode. We travel in a motorhome and have often been in areas of no or very weak reception. Last summer, we were often in areas where we could only get analog signals...don't know how that will work out now that Verizon has dropped analog. I have not found a way of comparing models by transmission, receiption abilities. This is very important to us. In fact, I have been having problems using the 'Compare' option which is supposted to compare certain phone features. I have yet to make that work. I click / check mark several phones on that page, but can't seem to get it to give me a side by side comparison. Any suggestions on the 'Compare' option and any input on service ranges of the different models being currently offered?
