    Which AT&T TDMA phone works best in fringe area?

    Nokia 3360, 6360 or Motorola V60i?
    (or perhaps one of the three Panasonic phones?)

    Thanks!

    V60i is the finest tdma phone out there. I will say this again, this is coming from a guy who had 6 v60t's and hated everyone of them.

    V60i is the biggest surprise. No regrets.

    3360!

    My 3360 has yet to lose a call due to poor reception. I was "dropped off" the system before around 5 p.m. but it was not a reception problem. Best phone that I have had, out of many many phones over the years.

    3360! many people have it but thats because its reliable. In places my friends Allure would get 2 bars, the 3360 would be at full.

    6360 or V60i
    3360 sux, I had one and got rarely above 2 bars And D @ my house, I bought 8260 off ebay and Stay on a constant 3-4 Bars and D @ my house.......
    I had 3 3360's in 6 months...... ...Piece of *****.......
    So many ppl have them becuz they r CHEAP and All the SP's can buy them......not becuz they r reliable..........
    My dad has 6360 and it is a great fone he gets better reception w/ it than his 3360(w/ he had for a week) and got rid of it cuz it sucked...........
    I have heard V60i gets good reception, but I am biased to Nokia Fones........V60i would be the ONLY Motorola fone I would ever own!
    WOOOOO!!!!! I'm "in"!!!!!

    All three phones get decent reception. I think the V60i with it's external antenna will get the best ANALOG reception, but the nokias with their internal antennas seem to do better with TDMA reception in my experience.

    I've used Nokia 6160i, 3360, 8260, 8265, 6360
    Motorola v60t, v60i
    Panasonic allure

    And of all of those the one i like to use the most and feel the most cofortable talking on and carrying in my pocket is the Nokia 8260 with the Moto V60i a close second place.
