    I have a 3 yr. old cellphone, Samsung SPH-A660 with Sprint. I was thinking
    of maybe trying Verizon and tried their LG 5200, but cannot get most times
    even 2 bars at my house. I can hardly make a call or the service is not
    there at all, or the signal fades and completes the call. The old Samsung
    does work though, even with 2 bars.

    Is there a good basic phone either with Sprint or Verizon that will hold or
    capture the most signal?

    The is a mast 1.2 miles away from my house but I do not know whether it is
    Sprint or Verizon or neither.

    I agree the LG5200 has terrible reception. Verizon's best reception phone is
    the Motorola E815.

    Re: Which phone holds the best signal

    I have a Moto E815 on Verizon. It has the best signal of any phone I've ever
    had, bar none. I will show 2 bars (FWIW) it places my other VZW phones can't
    even make a call.

    I heard that about the E815. But Analog seems important sometimes and E815
    does not have it. It is also a phone release years ago, right?

    Re: Which phone holds the best signal

    I saw it today in the Verizon store but was surprised they want still a lot
    of money for it, a phone released 2 -3 years ago.
    With rebate by mail (unfortunately) it is still $80 and I need 2 for the
    family plan.

    Is there a way to just download the pictures from the E815 directly into
    your computer?

    Fist off, they were not identical phones. One was a Sprint PCS phone
    and one was a verizon phone. The hardware and software are different in
    the two phones. Second, both services may not have been from the same
    antenna site. Third, Sprint PCS was a PCS signal and verizon was likely
    a cellular signal.

    Yes, I would think so. Why?

    I guess it depends where you live. I am in Gaithersburg, MD and the LG 5200
    is no good here to make calls from my house with Verizon.

    I also have the E815. In the building where I work, most people have
    to stand outside to get reception. I can sit in my office and get
    perfect reception.

    For a cheap, basic tri-mode phone with very good reception, you might
    try the Nokia 6015i. Don't know if they're still sold new. I've had
    good luck buying replacement phones off Ebay (you're usually safe if you
    stick with sellers that have at least 50 feedbacks and a rating of >98%).

    Curious, why does it matter how long ago the phone was released as long
    as it does what you want?

    Pretty impressive that an 18-month-old boy can use a speakerphone.

    (sorry, I couldn't resist ;-)

    It is only about a year old. You canstill find some new or excellent V710's
    on Ebay. It is tri-mode with incredible reception. The Mot V276 also is a
    tri-mode with excellent reception. Smaller size than the V710 and E815.

    What about the old Motorola StarTAC? We used one on Verizon for years
    and it
    had excellent reception. It still works fine, but looks kind of clunky
    by today's standards.
    Wife wanted a new one, so got the Samsung SGH A630 which is a neat
    little phone,
    but haven't used it enough to know if the reception is as good as the
    StarTAC.
    BTW, you can by them on eBay for next to nothing.
