    The i60 is kinda like a poor mans version of the i90.
    I've used both now, so I'm relatively familar with both phones.

    Both have a nice phone book feature where you can
    assign multiple names to each contact. Both have
    internet accesses (with the right calling plan). Both
    have the ability to set different rings tones, lock the
    keypad, backlight, Vibrate instead of ring, headset jack,
    yada, yada, yada... the basics you'd expect with most
    cellphones these days.

    The i90 has the following features that the i60 does
    not have:

    Java -- Load apps and games on your device.
    Advanced Ring Tones -- the i60 gives you 9
    standard tones, the i90 has those plus allows you
    to add more
    Datebook -- the i90 has a simple date book
    Cutomize able menu -- the i90 lets you put the menu
    funtions in the order you want.
    Voice Dialing -- you can program the phone to dial
    numbers when you speak the right name (you need
    to hold down a button for about a second to activate
    this function.
    Preview Window -- as you mentioned, it's got the
    little window in the front.
    Voice Recording -- Record a few seconds.

    Those are the things I know about/use on the i90. I
    imagine there maybe a few other items that others
    could tell you, but those are the basics I think.

    To tell you the truth, I don't know.

    I've got my i90 second hand, so I just know about the feature, but
    haven't read the manual to know a limit.

    I would imagine the limit is dependant on available
    memory...how many apps/games you have stored on
    your device could make a siginificant impact on the
    length of time you can record.

    I think that the sales guy may have misled you a touch
    on the limit though... I can't imagine you could record
    a whole 30 minute conversation.

    However, a conversation might only last 30 seconds,
    so the guy might be technically correct. I'll do a
    bit of digging and see if I can find a limit on the length
    of time.

    Does the i60 have a jack for an external antenna that I can put on the
    roof of my car ? I love in a fringe area and need all the help I can
    get.

    Yes it does. Same place as on the i90c, incase anyone is
    wondering.

    Look for the Nextel Logo on the back, peal the rubber
    back gently from the left hand side (right next to the
    built in antenna.

    It should just "pop out" and fold back, exposing the ext.
    antenna hookup.
