Samsung SCH-A650 vs. Audiovox CDM-8600: which better?
Which phone is better able to pull in a weak signal? I live part of the year in a rural, fringe, analog area less than 1/8 mile from a no-service (for any company) zone. My primary concern when selecting a cell phone is it's ability to receive a signal. Voice quality is next. Bells and whistles are minor concerns to the above. I don't care how much a cell phone costs as long as it enable me to make and receive calls.
I have asked Verizon which of their tri-mode...
My situation's similar to yours ... except I havn't bought a tihng yet :-)
This phone's the smallest tri-band Verizon phone with speakerphone and that makes it tempting.
And a friend just got the SCH-A650 last week. (He has no complaints yet, but hey, he's in Atlanta, GA. You're going to get service there even if you're only using tooth fillings and an aluminum beanie!)
Well worded post, btw :-)
