I dunno, I keep my old Nokia 6275i on a basic $20 plan from Bell and the odd time that I've had to use it, reception was better than my HSPA Moto Dext in some parts of Ottawa and my calls didn't drop running through downtown.
Reception is an important issue for me, especially in buildings. Here at work, my desk is about 15 ft back from the front window. Reception on my Moto = 0-1/4 bars (text/data work somewhat, but no calls), Nokia = 3-4/5 bars (full text/data and I can make calls).
Then again, those older Nokias are known for legendary reception.
