It really depends on what you want in a phone. The lg-vx4400 is a tri-mode phone. It will get signal anywhere in the VZW network AND will pick up analog (AMPS) in emergency/very rural areas. I love the keypad and the screen. The only gripe I have is the standby time is short. I tend to charge my phone every 2 days. Not a big issue since I have a car charger now.
I am an authorized retailer for VZW. Out of all the phones, the LG-vx6000, the lg-vx4500, the motorola V60s, the kyocera slider, the motorola t730, the LG-vx4600, etc... I selected the LG-VX4400 (b stands for blue faceplate btw) for my own personal use.
Sides.. If you don't like the phone you have 15 days to return/exchange the sucker.
