No. Not international. CDMA only.

Nope. No way to have missed call/ text message on the outer display more than 1 minute. That's why I didn't get this phone.

Re: Does this phone show you've missed a call on the external display?

Never had a 720 so can't compare to the 265. That said, I've been very pleased with the battery life. Aside from the smallish screen it's a really great phone. You won't be sorry if you get it.

We are considering this phone but only if he can glance over to the phone and see if he's missed a call WITHOUT having to hit a button to bring up the display.

Simply an awful phone. Others love it and tjey are selling a ton of them, but there are a ...

Re: V265 vs V551
Feb 6, 2005, 12:14 PM

Apples and oranges here my friend. The 265 is CDMA for VZW. The 551 is GSM for the T-Mobiles and Cingulars of the world. No system will offer both phones. The 551s bluetooth would be nice BUT then you have to have a GSM carrier. Personally, I think that VZW offers the best coverage and superior voice fidelity and recption. But, that's me.

If you are dropping calls alot the 6100 won't be any better. For me, the reception and abiliy to hold calls was a major disappointment of the 6100. I just switched my 6100 for a Moto 265. While certainly not as beutiful a phone it is great as far as superior RF (reception.) Why not check it out? You have a 15 day trial period with all VZW phones. Your only issue with the 265 might be its smallish ...

Re: Looking for Verizon V810
Jan 16, 2005, 12:47 PM
in the Motorola V810 forum

The v810 while having a great form and build factor is nonetheless way overrated IMHO. I had one with VZW software and was still disappointed with the RF and call quality. I ended up selling mine. To be honest it certainly wasn't worth what I was able to sell it for. A couple of things to remember. You will never ever be able to get a software upgrade for it as VZW never took the phone. Also, it is ...

Re: Small Light Tri-mode?
Dec 16, 2004, 6:57 PM
in the Motorola V265 / V266 / V276 forum

Fincher, I'm with you on that. The conclusion I came to is that it needed a software revision. Just like most phones do after introduction. But, since VZW never took on this phone there would obviously never be one for my VZW version of the 810. That played a huge role in my decision to unload it. Also, it did have a nasty habit of going into analog and refusing to go back into digital without a reboot (again ...

Dec 16, 2004, 11:10 AM
in the Motorola V265 / V266 / V276 forum

Quite honestly, IMHO, the v810 is not as great as some posts would have you believe. The phone has been around for awhile so the technology is almost 2 years old. The RF is good not great. And always a bit of static in bakground. The small form factor is a plus. The OLED is way too small and is essntially useless, especially in sunlight I had one with VZW software and sold it. No regrets.

jagolden said: Picked up a 6100 under NE2 last Thursday and have noticed that the signal indicator fluctuates quite a bit (esp. compared to the old V60). It will usually stay from 3 - 5 but sometimes it will go from 5 down to 1 and then back up to 4 or 5 bars. It never seems to lose service or go to analog. (I'm in the Central NJ area, and coverage has usually been excellent.) There seems to be ...

What Makes People Think There Is Going to be a Firmware Update?
Dec 11, 2004, 12:29 AM
in the LG VX-6100 forum

The way I see it phone models come and go so fast now that manufacturers have very little motivation to spend time and resources for firmware updates for phones already out there. They'll just fix the software for the next release of a newer phone model. Opinions?

I'm sure VZW will disable most of this. Their business plan is to diable any features that can result in "revenue leakage." What that means is they will force you to use GIN and their other products/services.

sarakandel said:It seems that the sound quality with the v256 is much better than the 6100thoughts? Don't believe everything you read. I tested them back-to-back at a VZW store and the 6100 was clearly superior on call quality, clarity and volume on both ends of the call. Yes, its a best case situation. But, if a phone can't cut it in the best of situations it is suspect in my opinion. Just my .02.

Just got back from the VZW store. I tested the v265 and 6100 back-to-back - they let you make free calls on each model. This is as good a test as I can think of as the reception at the stores is typically excellent. The 6100 had much better sound quality and earpiece volume. When I listened to people on the v265 they sounded like they were underwater. On the 6100 they sounded much more clear and natural. Same results ...
