    Dear friends, cell phone experts, lurkers,

    I am most, most, most grateful for your help during the past several
    days. I have learned so much about gsm and cell phones. As you know, I
    have to be in India by early September and must make a choice now.

    Through various channels---Ebay, other auction places, dealers, and
    offers from private individuals---I have the opportunity to purchase
    the following phones:

    Motorola P280 V66
    Nokia 6610 6100
    Sony Ericsson R520M t68i t600

    Prices vary somewhat, but not enough to worry about (I have already
    eliminated those I can't afford), so I am going to ignore that factor .


    With these seven phones on the table, which one would you pick?

    I want the phone simply to make and receive calls. Should receive poor
    signals, and send out good ones both to the tower and to my ears. Keys
    should work when pressed. It should be light, survive in the pockets
    and backpacks, and hold the charge for a long time.

    Tell me your top pick(s). This is your last chance to influence my life
    for some time to come! Thanks you so very much.

    I personally use R520m. It has been excellent for me for the past few years.
    It is one of the better reception phones of the Ericsson lineup.

    There's something sellers mostly don't tell you, firmware version. Some
    firmware versions for some phones are just messed up badly. Other than that,
    the newer is always better. To find out, dial:
    SE: Right * Left Left * Left *
    Nokia: *#0000#
    Motorola: not sure.

    I'd personally go with the Nokia 6100. I've had that one and was very
    pleased with it. It's very small, it has handsfree-function (which is very
    very handy) and great reception-quality. Phone has long standby-times as
    well.

    Nokia 6610, hands down. It's the best phone I've ever owned. It will
    give you better RF performance than the Motorola and SE models and
    offers a nice array of features.

    How can one keep firmware updated? Is this something you can
    download by dialing some #, or take the phone to them? My present
    phone, nothing to do with this Asia trip, is Nokia.

    How would you like to get a call from the police complaining that
    you have just phoned the emergency number when there was no emergency?
    It happened when I was there - but not to me. The emergency number can
    be connected from a locked keyboard, but you do not have this problem
    with a phone which fold shut.

    With an ebay purchase you may not get the instruction book, so it
    could help to get a phone whose manual is downloadable so you can
    look through the features to see if any would be of particular help.

    I like the V66. It is small, neat and stylish. I think it is the
    kind of phone you could happily keep for future trips.

    Whatever you choose - have a good trip!

    Thanks. Since this term keeps coming up, let me clarify what RF
    performance is. Does it refer to the actual talk signals you send
    and receive, or to connection with computers etc?

    Call your service provider or phone manufacturer.

    If it aint broken, don't fix it.

    Radio Frequency performance. Usually it refers to the ability to
    make/receive a call and to hold on to that call based on signal strength.

    Whilst I have a V600 without a doubt your best bet from you list is the T68i
    Avoid Nokia s like a dose of the herpes.

    You don'tmean t600 with a typo, you mean the Motorola one that I
    crossed off as unaffordable?

    > without a doubt your best bet from you list is the T68i


    I know it has Li Polymer battery and eye-catching battery charge
    life. Is there something else too that makes it the best here?

    > Avoid Nokia s like a dose of the herpes


    I am curious, why? Is it the design, performance, quality control of
    units? I have been lucky with one Nokia I have but it is tdma, not gsm,
    and has only been used in a major metropolitan area, so signal strength
    has not been an issue.

    Good point! And forget the police, what if my spouse got dialed while I
    was flirting with somebody else? I have been lucky so far. Once in a
    while I find that a couple of keys pressed, but has never actually
    dialed out a real number.

    I 'm not really concerned about what you are considering affordable, yes I
    do mean the motorola v600 and of the handsets listed if I was faced with
    your 'dilemna' I would go for the T68i , further more I am demonstrating
    that this is without prejudice.

    Cos I am so bored of hearing the owners moan about bugs on the handsets,it's
    not like in India you will have all the luxuries you have here, so go for
    something robust tried and tested the t68i.
