I have had the V180, 186, 188, 190, and 220. The 190 kills all of them. it takes all the good from the previous and weeds out the bad. It's loud as hell and easy buttons for dialing or texting. smooth rounded case with external monochrome. I got a deal on it - $90. Louder, clearer, and has stronger RF than my nokia 6061, 6270, and RAZR.
