Kyocera SoHo KX1
Kyocera KX1 or Motorola V60i
Should I opt for the new SoHo KX1, or get the venerable V60i?
Thank Goodness it has changeable faceplates...
Thank GOODNESS the faceplate is changeable, because the one it comes with is simply fugly.
If I do get this phone, I'm immediately chucking the default faceplate in the trash and replacing it with the candy apple red/white one.
Guess that was Kyocera's intention... they want you to buy faceplates.
How are signal strength and reception?

overall review of the phone
and what is your basic review of this phone?
I have now had the phone for 6 weeks, still have not found any shortcomings beyond those mentioned in the original review.
Two additional "Pro's":
(1) phone keeps a record of the last 20 received, 20 dialed, and 20 missed calls (most of my old phones kept a record of the last 10 of each of these categories);
(2) each of the 20 calls in dialed or received calls shows the DURATION of the call, in addition to the start date and time. My old phones showed only the start time -- duration was shown only for the very last call made or received.
