I am currently using the VX-6100 during my NE2 15 day trial, and really like what I've seen thus far. I came from my beloved Startac 7868 which I still have.

I am wondering what people's field experiences have been with the V265? I'm in the Boston area so coverage is not a problem for me.

The only negatives I have about this phone is that the date is not shown via external display and even in the internal display, the internal screen is too small, and the "smart key" cannot be programmed aside from speakerphone.

For your needs the speakerphone is ...
