Def V710, and incase you really need a conk on the head, the VZW network is Godly in comparison to the AT&T. That alone should bring you to the V710. Sorry, but that was more or less a worthless question. Check the specs, and the provider.

I live in california and have the v600 and att, first off cingular and att just enabled eachothers towers to work for both, so basically i now have the best reception ever. When gsm is implemented properly like in europe and asia it is better than cdma technology that verizon uses. Now that cingular and att are merging this means a good network for the us. Now onto the fones, basically the v710 has better features than the v600 in a few different ways, but in my opinion the v600 is 10 times sexier on the outside and in. And its not like the v600 has skimpy features, i love this fone it does everything one would need and well.

As great as the att&cingular towers sound, they are the two worst companies. Bad + Bad doesnt = Good, just worse. Your theory on the GSM being impletmented in the US like in Europe and Asia is correct, but that would take at least 10 years starting now. US did it wrong from the start, so CDMA for at least another 5 years or so is the best. The closest is the T-Mobile GSM, they are up and coming, and if they continue on their path, they are a future contender. But Att&Cingular are horrible Carriers, and I sincerely doubt you have the best service in CA. Where in CA are you located?

I don't know much about the v600 phone but I do know that cdma is much better than gsm. It has better range, less radiation, better security, and higher speed data transmission. About the only thing buying a gsm phone will provide you over cdma is better worldwide roaming (though hopefully cdma will gain better worldwide acceptance... doesn't matter to me much though since I don't think I would take my cell phone abroad anyway).

But, I guess this is a little off-topic for this forum.... I can't wait till the mot v710 and the lg vx8000 are out 🙂

Yeah, I agree. It has 1xev-do (who knows how much verizon will charge even if it is cheaper for vzw than 1xrtt and how long it will be before they update nm's towers -- where i am... though, i admin, they are pretty fast with upgrading out here) and aim (i don't know if that means the sms based one off get it now). Plus i had all sorts of problems with the t720c and never had any problems with an lg (both the vx4400 and vx6000). LG makes a solid product 🙂.... Though it doesn't have bluetooth :/. Guess I can't have everything.

1x EV-DO doesn't do voice calls, only data. So the network won't get signifigantly cheaper for Verizon until they roll out 1x EV-DV.

All that 1x EV-DO means is that you get fast data speeds in certain areas and not much else.

I am well aware of that fact. The cost issue was in regards to how much verizons current 2.5G data network costs.

Right, until the synergy from the AT&T/Cingluar merger kicks in and they shut down a bunch of towers. Same way as Verizon has been slowly reducing the number of towers in the PRL after getting people hooked in... 😈

GSM should be getting slightly better in the reception department, in the coming year. As AT&T/Cingular finishes moving TDMA users to GSM and using the 850 bands for GSM instead, GSM will have the wall-penetrating abilities of Verizon's CDMA network, assuming your phone supports those bands. The thing to remember is that GSM is an excellent, well-thought-out standard except that CDMA does a better job of sending your signal over the radiowaves (but they didn't bother with nifty things like SIM cards)

All depends on what you value.

The v710 "probably" has a better camera in general (more pixels, flash, etc) However, if you really care about camera quality, you'd have a "real" dedicated digital camera anyways. The v710 will also apparently do video.

v600 has J2ME, v710 has BREW. I'm not sure how locked down the J2ME is, but BREW is heavily locked, if that's important to you.

v600 is GSM and v710 is CDMA 1xRTT. This is a big difference. For a variety of reasons going back in history, CDMA goes through walls better and can carry more calls per cell, plus it's faster than GSM for data, if you are in a 1xRTT area. If you travel outside of the...

because AT&T's network ultimately blows chunks (tons of dropped calls, poor customer service, etc. at least here in CA anyway), I'd go with Verizon anyday. I'd go with Verizon over anyone actually. I've personally used Cingular (sucked), AT&T (really sucked), T-Mobile (good, but poor reception once you leave your city), Sprint (omg don't even get me started with how many dropped calls I had)...and with AT&T pretty much merging with Cingular (two bad companies joining together to make ONE REALLY LARGE BAD COMPANY), I'd stick with Verizon.

I'm not being bias because I've had all of these carriers. But then again, this is in MY region. I'm not sure how these companies work in other areas, but here in CA they blow donkey chunks with the excep...
