1. The reception I've come to expect from a Nokia phone. The only phone to work pretty well in my house was my old 3589i.
2. Good volume and sound quality - I tried out a 6255i in a store, and it was a little lacking in the volume department.
3. If it also had EVDO - this is way more useful than I thought it was, as it turns out wap runs much, much, much faster over EVDO.
Right now I'm stuck with an e815, which it totally cool - except in my house, where it could really use just a little bit better reception.
