    I know its a stupid question but I cant understand why they wont start releasing nice phones. People made such a big deal out of the 530 and the reason for that was because the phone is nice looking no other reason.

    I really would wish verizon starts putting out some nice phones my upgrade is a month away, I want to change plans, and my phone now is garbage.

    Keep in mind they don't make 'em, they just test them and when they are ready (except the Moto 720), they are released for sale. For those that use their phones to make and get calls, it's not a big deal. I have seen some neat/cool/cute/colorful/game-playing phones, but if they can't get a signal, hold a call, or you can't hear clearly, then what good are they really.

    Even that I loathe Verizon for bad calling plans, their phones ARE nice.. well, some.
    For example, LG VX4400 looks gooooooood!! Samsung A310 looks cool too

    Their phone selection is 10x better than it was 6 months ago. VX-4400 is a very nice high-end phone along with the audiovox. I mean the LG is only 99$ for a color phone, can't beat that. I also don't find their plans too bad (my area isn't too competative, SPCS, Verizon, Nextel, and Cingular mostly). Sprint 300/1000 smaller network, or Verizon 300/unl much larger network all for 35$.

    Personally I don't think Verizon's plans or phone's are that bad. They actually have some nice looking phones now such as the LG VX4400.

    Look at it this way, it could be worse, you could have Cingular where you are stuck between a low model Nokia and a V60t at best unless you have GSM in your area which is spotty. (6-9 phones to choose from with none being tri-mode).

    "Ugly" is very subjective - I think there are some nice looking phones from many carriers. I still don't think there is a better looking phone than the v60 from any carrier.

    i do agree the V60 is an attractive phone and propbably is Motorola's best selling phone by far since the star tac but i actual enjoy my i95cl better due to the color display, it shares the resemblance of the v60 with the features of a T720. I know Nextel is iffy in many spots but here in CT it is equal to many.

    Their Looks aren't that bad. It's their battery life that can't hold the charge even when turned off.

    I think the less cool phones have to do with GSM having a bigger hold on the world market so companies don't put as much money into CDMA R&D.

    And HelloMotoV70 is right, there is no GSM cingular in my area(or Tmobile for that matter) and they only offer 7 phones in my area, only one of which is a flip phone.

    Mosco, where are you in MA? I am in RI, just south of Providence, and have been all over MA with no problem getting reception on my T-Mobile phone.

    if you look at the national coverage map of Tmobile and zoom in to northeast MA, there is small part near the NH border that isn't covered.
