I ended up getting the soho from Alltel in Kalamazoo. So far no problems, and it is in fact made in Mexico. When I went to buy it there were guys from two different stores working. Between them they could not recall one of these phones being returned to either store. They commented that it has received nothing but good reviews. They said the phones to stay away from now were LG's.

I had a nokia 3587i. This phone is very similar in RF.. I work in a factory in which my office is interior to the building in a rural town (Otsego MI). I can receive/make calls on this phone just as I could the nokia. The speakerphone is fine, not too loud but frankly I think NEXTEL's is ridiculuous loud and bad. I use my speaker in my I am like 18" away and in both directions it is fine. The voice dialing works fine and once I learned it connect on the first try each time. The keypad is plenty adequate...number and send/end keys are large...though navigation keys are somewhat small..though for a small phone I can't complain.

The only thing I am not too sure on is battery life. It seems maybe kind of short..though refreshing on my 20 minute drive to work gets me thru each day.

Overall I am very happy with this phone. I like the size and feel and am very pleased with the performance. It was all I hoped for in not spending much money and getting a basic flip phone..right now I would rate it a 8.5 - 9.0 out of 10 from a performance verus expectation scale.
