😡 Alltel really has no selection of phones!!! I have had almost everyone they have and the ones I haven't had were the crappy ones. I really hope the new owners put more money into phones!!!

Please.

I use the Motorola E815 and have no problems. Motorola's handset software/firmware is easy and functional. Call quality is excellent but that also depends on the area. Hell, Motorola will tell you that the E815 is the best operating phone they even manufacture.

If you are buying LG then that is half the problem. The LG has notorious software issues. No matter what carrier that uses LG.

Kyocera sucks now since most of "good" handset designers have left the company.

Samsung is OK but they are using a cheap plastic to develop phones. The handset software is good.

Nokia does NOT make CDMA handsets anymore. Only GSM!

See, I use my cellular phone to talk. Not spending my day text messaging, taking pictures, playing games...

Couldn't agree with you more, AT! I use my phone for talking as well. If I take a picture, it's generally for wallpaper. I like my RAZR, and have had pretty good service with it. The E815 has been around a while, though, and it's the only MOTO out there still being used that has the old charging port, I believe. It's been a workhorse, but it's got to be close to end-of-life by now, wouldn't you think? Darn shame Nokia couldn't get CDMA right. I'm test-driving a 6315i at the moment, and it's OK for a Pantech product, but it's dropping calls for me where the RAZR didn't. I'm not crazy about LG, Samsung, or Kyocera, either.

Nokia got CDMA right, just was hacked (and rightly so!) with Quaalcom. They are a monopoly (by just about every definition possible) afterall.

xyz,
Sounds like you need to find a GSM carrier.
T-Moible and AT&T.

Only if he wants to either hear total silence (he's rural) or buzzing during every conversation......

I'm hoping Nokia either learns to make their own CDMA chip or gets over their problems with Qualcom. They are a quality company.

No.
Nokia believe they deserved a lower licensing fee to have CDMA chips in their handsets. The Qualcomm’s agreement with Nokia was fair and just. Nokia attempted to bully Qualcomm.
Now, if you developed something you would what royalties, right? Qualcomm is just trying to get paid, just like everyone else.

Yes, and they are still a monopoly. No one else either makes or can make the CDMA chip.

....that's not a monopoly. A monopoly is if someone did try to make the chip and they buy them out. They're the only ones who can do it, so they win. and they want to be paid. who wouldn't? god bless capitalism.

Or maybe pursue them legally and cry foul every time someone does develop a chip? Kinda like they did when Nokia did try to develop a chip!

Nope...I've been using Verizon out of DC for the last 8 years, and a friend of mine who was the outside sales rep for Nokia who dealt exclusively with VZW used to give me phones to use on that service. This was the last phone I will ever get from him, as he has left Nokia's employ and is out of the biz altogether.

Sorry for the confusion.
