Call quality - Motorola vs. others


May 12, 2005, 11:21 AM
I'm thinking about switching over to Sprint because of their superior coverage where I work. One major BEEF I have with all cellphone carriers is the tendency of their phones to "hang-on" to a marginal signal of their own carrier (instead of roaming), even when call quality suffers. Of course, the phones generally don't let you override and "force" them onto a particular network.

I read a few posts about the Motorola V60 which were encouraging as far as call quality, even with marginal signal. I basically want a phone that works, and if it needs to hop over to Verizon's network and "roam," then that should happen. Any feedback is greatly appreciated!

Any Sanyo phone is a real good choice. My 7400 is amazing on reception.

besides mine having a short in it, i think the sanyo 8200 is kick ass! best phone i have ever had!

I also carry an 8200 and with the roaming setting on automatic it will latch on to the stronger signal. I eat at a restaurant that is in a basement often and when inside I am on digital roam. When I come out I have to change to Sprint to aquire the sprint signal again. Have had phone for a year and no complaints.

The V60v seems to be hit or miss. Some people have said it works great while many others have reported terrible quality and reception. If you like Moto give it a shot but make sure you test it out a bunch during the first 14 days otherwise I'd take it back and look into a Sanyo phone.
