    Hello,

    I just posted the following in another group as part of what
    amounts to a rant. Do Nokia make a phone that's likely to
    meet my needs?

    | I don't want a digital camera in my phone. I have a
    | slight preference for a mono display (they seem much
    | more readable in sunlight). I want good audio, decent
    | reception and firmware that works. An external antenna
    | jack would be a definite plus, and it should work as a
    | modem for CSD & GPRS with an RS-232 (preferred) or USB
    | cable. I don't want flashing antennas, hi-fi ringtones,
    | flips or slides, just a sensible, reliable business
    | phone that doesn't suck horribly.

    I forgot to mention in my original post that the phone
    should ideally be quad band, but at least have 1800 and 1900
    MHz GSM bands.

    - Andy Ball.

    If I was feeling generous I'd offer you my trusty 6310i but as it works so
    reliably I won't

    You could get one as they still appear in places as someone finds a boxed
    item in their obsolete equipment box. Nokia no longer make anything that
    fits your specification, I doubt any manufacturer does.

    Sacrifice a few "needs" and try a 6230i. If you must have quad band then go
    look at Motorolas, and no flames please! I use a V3i as my main phone and a
    6310i for business contacts; pleasure and work well separated.

    A 6310i would suit me better. Out of interest though, how
    much are you charging for the 6230i?

    A friend of mine used to have a 6310i and I agree, it seems
    almost like the perfect phone for me. I'm a bit baffled that
    Nokia haven't replaced it with a quad-band version. :-( If
    I could buy a 6310i today (at a fair price), I would.

    You don't mention which country you're in. A quick search on UK websites
    finds some silly high prices and some low ones for used, warranted handsets.
    One website you may consider is www.nokia6310i.co.uk Expansys UK also have
    a stock of 12month warranted handsets at around 140.

    I'm British but I live in the U.S. I would like the phone to
    work in both places, even if that means swapping out the SIM
    to avoid "international roaming international calls".

    Thanks for the links.

    Expansys USA has a 89 left <g> at $225 plus delivery. Reworked,warranted
    stock but a price comparable to the UK website. I don't work for Expansys
    BTW, but do use them regularly.
