The phone works very well, in that it CALLS people, and allows people to call you. Coverage is fine, I have yet to have a dropped call. Other people have mentioned it, but I'll go back over this point: you do not need a camera, nor mp3 player, nor TV on your phone. Odds are you are fat, anyway, and the last thing you need is another excuse to sit around entertaining yourself. Cellular phones are for placing and receiving calls when landlines are impractical, and this phone does just that.
I like the walkie feature, the off network coverage for remote locations, the on network clarity of call is great, and the plans are economical through Nextel in this region. Good phone, very nice price. Free. No silly extras that you'll ne...

nextel mind warp (high end phones)

it always appears that even when you look at a very entry level phone for nextel (like this one) it looks impresive but when you look at an entry level for say verizon, they look like disposable cameras (like the samsung a630.

this is prbly caused by nextels general lack of high end phones. except for the i930 and i870, everythings pretty basic

i think people should complain to motorola tell them to make some higher end phones for nextel.

i would switch to nextel if they had some higher end phones Confused

arrived today!!

I received 2 of these phones today for customers, i did have the chance to turn it on and go through it. the phone is actually fairly nice with a great intro price. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles as maybe the other phones, but it will work for anybody that needs a good phone with mms. Probably going to be a good seller for 49.99

ZOMFG can't wait for Helio...

Look at the interface! It's so... clean... and efficient... look how many fields they fit on that QVGA screen - my Samsung with the same resolution only fits 3 or 4... wow... just wow. Bout time someone gave us something that could even slightly compete with Japanese and South Korean carriers.

Here is what I find interesting.
The FCC site shows that the VX8300 was submitted on 03/03/06 and the VX8400 was submitted on 11/18/05.
However, there is no mention of the VX8400 from CITA.

The FCC site says the External Test Photos for the VX8300 will be up available on 10/14/06, and the External Test Photos for the VX8400 on 05/17/06. » »

To Rich or Eric

Did you guys notice how CTIA has become more insignificant? There seems like there were less attendance, the venue seemed smaller and not many things were announced this years as was last year.

There was less hype. It was almost quiet.

I was wondering if you felt that and if you think that this is a hiccup for 2006 or an ongoing trend?

Future Helio Handsets (Samsung?)

Helio did mention they had a Samsung handset comming out in the fall after the initial push with a design that has "already been successfull" or something to that liking.

Are we supposed to start thinking SLIM A900 with more features here?

Nokia GPS

Any bets on if Verizon will disable the standalone GPS??

I'm going to say that they will disable it since there would be a competing BREW program

Jitterbug and GreatCall

Now after getting some clarification, I take back the snide remarks about this particular MVNO. It looks like GreatCall has done its research. And I actually dig the Jitterbug phone. It's pretty neat (and damn, are those some large buttons!).

RE: Cingular trying to charge for RRS feeds

I had to laugh at this. $10/mo for the "previlige" of downloading these feeds? I'm SOO glad they aren't releasing the N80. They would have destroyed this phone by first, disabling the WLAN, and then having the audacity to charge for RSS feeds.

RSS Readers

The E61 has wifi and I was wondering how it loads the RSS feeds. Does it use the Wifi connection or does it use whatever connection is available for mobile data (GPRS/EDGE). Also, how does SE implement it on their device? Anything that avoids more data charges is as advantage.

Rich, both LG LX-550 and VX-8300 support stereo Bluetooth profile (i.e. A2DP)

Both qualified profile lists show A2DP-Source so they support streaming stereo Bluetooth.

I guess I'm stupid

but I never noticed that the Samsung logo has an upside down "V" for the "A". I was looking at the a930 up close and noticed it. I thought to myself, "Man, that's cool. I wonder when they started doing that." Then I started clicking on phones and such and realized it's always been like that......I need to put down that pipe.

Having gone to CTIA.....

I found the Samsung booth to be the best overall (not for design, I couldn't care less for their shows and booth designs).

They had a killer slim blackberry (7100t type keypad) that was major slim.

They also had their first HSDPA phone that will go into production ZX20. It has a disappointing form factor that was reminiscent of the SS ZX10 but heavier, the LG HSPDA device, which is coming out at the same time is much more compelling (but was not shown). I like their jewelry store concept but I am not a fan of the fugly jitterbug. That is a huge monstrosity that could have been executed better.

Second was a tie between LG and Sony Ericcson. While I've seen pictures, sometimes you just have to see the phones in real life. I rea...

Picture of VX8300 OLED Display?

I liked the pictures comparing the VX8100 next to the VX8300.
However, it would be nice to see a picture of them with the external displays turned on
so we see the VX8300 OLED next to the VX8100 TFT.
