    I'm inclined to go with a 6340i as opposed to a T62u, but I would like
    to hear of others' experiences and recommendations. Is there something
    new coming out soon that I should wait for?

    Thanks.

    No more GAIT phones besides these. 6340i has been outstanding for me --
    good size, good RF, acceptable audio, and good battery life (esp in GSM).

    I never had the t62u, but I had the 6340 and now the 6340i. The t62
    offers GPRS, and the 6340i does not. You can use CSD data on the 6340.

    The Nokias are practical, useful phones with long- lasting batteries.
    They have worked fine for me on both GSM and TDMA signals on Cingular.
    The 6340 has been out for more than a year, and word was then and now
    that there are to be no more GAIT units: those two are your only
    choices.

    I was just at an (RCC) Unicel store, and they said they are expecting
    both GAIT phones and GSM 1900 / AMPS 800 phones. The rep also said they
    will probably also start offering GSM 850/1900 or 850/1800/1900. RCC
    Unicel operates exclusively on GSM 1900. Fido in Canada has offered
    GSM/AMPS phones in the past, but I'm not sure how good they were.
    Because the area surrounding RCC Unicel is primarily CDMA/AMPS, they
    said they were hoping for those phones so the rural populations of North
    Dakota, South Dakota, and Minnesota could have emergency access in
    remote areas. The GSM 850 would probably allow (per minute charges
    with) roaming with Cingular and AT&T, and other small carriers who have
    an 800 A or B license who may switch to GSM.

    Re: GAIT phone comparison?

    Scott, it depends as to which type of plan you have and where you use
    it. For a national plan (not GSM plan) it is perfect. For a local
    plan, it might not make as much sense. Having said that, I've had my
    Nokia 6340i since Dec. 14, 2002 on the old National plan (which they are
    now selling again in 850 GSM transistioned markets) and love it. Great
    reception (except at home inside), very good sound quality, easy Nokia
    use. I travel all over the country in my 18 wheeler and get good
    coverage with the 6340i. The only place I had trouble was a stretch of
    I-77, the 30 miles South of I-81 no signal until the downgrade into NC.
    The funny thing is that 2 months earlier I had no signal on I-77 the 20
    miles North of I-81. In between they download the new IRDB after the
    big ATTWS roaming agreement. On the second trip, I got Cellular One on
    the Northern section and then CS couldn't figure out why I couldn't get
    a signal on the Southern section. They told me to call in the area when
    I had no signal-I was there on Sunday. How do I contact them then when
    CS is closed and the Roaming section is only there M-F 8-5? After-hours
    tech can't help in this problem.

    At present there are no GSM/AMPS phones except for the GAIT phones
    such as the Nokia 6340i or the Ericsson T62U. Fido still offers AMPS
    analog roaming with either the Nokia 6340/6340i or the Nokia
    5190/6190/7190 with the analog "surfboard" or in the alternative you
    can use any phone and register the ESN and use it e.g. Nokia 5165 or
    Nokia 3285 and use the analog capabilities.

    Re: GAIT phone comparison?

    I used the T62U for a couple of days and it seemed to work ok, still have
    one. But I switched to the 6340i, because I had a better head set for it.
    The nokia menu structure was more familar, too.

    We must have had 2 or 3 times as many cutomers with problems with T62u than
    6340i.

    If you are close enough to take a T62u into a warranty center if you have
    problems, that may be just as good of a choice.
    But if not, I would go with the 6340i.

    I use the T62U. I have had no problems and the RF is just right for me.
    The middle control stub took me a week to get used to. More people
    lean towards Nokia becasue that is what they are used to. The T62U
    layout is strange when compared to the nokia model.
    Few people have a GAIT phone up here so I have not had the oppurtunity
    to ask them what ithey like, or why.
