Hi razr users. I was wondering if anyone saw a dip in reception with the internal antenna. I have a Samsung a670 and can extend the antenna when reception is a bit low. Does anyone have any comparative experience with the razr and another phone? Is reception as good, better, or worse? Thanks for the feedback!

I had a Treo 650 and got the Razr because I actually wanted to simplify my life. The Razr's reception kicks the Treo's butt. I still catch myself walking to a different part of my office when I get a call, just because I could get good signal strength from the Treo. Now I don't have to worry about where I am in the office.

that sounds awesome. Ive heard mixed reviews about the signal. mostly average to good - which is totally acceptable. Ive never had a signal problem since moving to verizon a couple years ago, hence why Im still here - because it sure as he11 isnt because of the technology 😁

was your treo verizon?

It was with Verizon. Verizon's coverage is unbeatable in my area. The 650 does a lot, but is the essence of mediocrity. Call quality marginal. Palm software is good. Bluetooth is horrible and what's the use of bluetooth if you have to dial from the phone and not the headset. The keys on the Razr are enormous compared to the tiny buttons on the Treo, and finally there is the size factor.

I now just carry my PDA and have my Razr too. I don't always need my PDA and the phone fits in my pocket. The Treo was a pain in my pocket, and I don't do holsters.

The Razr is a phone, not an MP3 player, etc... If you want a phone, it's the best I've used, and I have used plenty. I go through a phone every six months on average.

The razr has better reception than my vx8100. I tried a call route where I knew the LG would fail, and the razr held like a champ. The only issue I've seen with the v3 as far as reception is on Cingular. Since the antenna is in the bottom under the battery, it is possible to block the signal by holding it wrong. The alltel, tmobile, and verizon razrs do not suffer this fate.

I am the resident network researcher for the stores in our area. I have just gotten the Razr, and I tested it out against my E815 on reception. It does equally as good. The E815 is one of the strongest reception phones VZW is selling, and I was thoroughly delighted when I found that my Razr was picking up and making calls exactly where the E815 was. Reception around here is a big issue. The Razr is a strong performer.

I have had the razr one week and all I can say is that it beats all my other phones hands down in the reception department. Even if there is only 1 bar showing, I still get good, clear reception. Current phone I switched from was Moto V505 (ATT Cingular).Cingular actually has great reception in our area (better than Verizon) but all my friends and family have Verizon and so to save $ I switched. BUT the determining factor was reception. What good is a phone without it? This is the main reason that I am keeping this phone.

I have a freind that just bought the Verizon Treo 650 and honestly...she breaks up during calls, can't keep a bluetooth headset connected and so I crossed that one off my list. Other phones we personally have on Verizon...

Always keep in mind that you can have a great phone that
s capable of picking up signal well but if your particular area doesn't have many cell towers around, you may not get great reception. So on that note, is there anyone in MD, close to VA, that owns the RAZR and hasn't had reception issues?

Had mine for four days. The reception is just great. The V3c will talk from places the E 815 and the 710 will not. It is head over heels better the the LG 7000, 8000 and 8100. No problem with reception at all. Just a dog gone great phone.
