I agree with you that the phones on Verizon always have glitches and problems. I also agree with you that the Samsung a890 probably does have the least amount of problems out of the phones currently on Verizon.

Then you have the problem of limiting yourself to like no brands to choose from. I used to have an Audiovox 8900 and it never dropped calls and I was always dropping it and it always made the calls and connected clearly. I then upgraded to Audiovox 9900 and I love that phone. I am currently using it. I have dropped that phone so many times I can't even keep track.

I wouldn't choose LG because they suck and don't have good long term reliability. Everyone I know who has a LG phone has had problems with it.

Motorola has a good track record with the V710 and V265 (yeah right)! Those phones have lots of problems. So what if the RF is good.

To answer your question about switching to another phone...try the Audiovox 8940. The SD card may be crippled but I hear it has a pretty decent camera and the screen I hear is supposed to be amazing on both the outside and inside. I picked up that phone the other day in a Verizon store and I had no trouble reading the display with the backlight off. Plus the 8940 can play real ringtones because it has the built MP3 player and you can download VZW Tones onto it through Get It Now. Lastly, it is also the smallest of the VCast phones currently out. In other words, I wouldn't short change Audiovox.
