just as a side note, you can find unlocking a S40 for way cheaper than $80 cdn on
-to answer the original question? the S40... one of the phones that decided to keep... although it's older, I also have an 8890 that I decided to keep as well... if you look at my current collection, it's pretty diverse, and I can say that the S40 is one of the rare little gems out there that I like, but lots don't. oh well... I've never had any problems with mine, (which I got from Fido, and was unlocked originally) and it has older firmware too, 3.2.0
-the RF is on par with my old 8290 and pretty much same performance as an 8890... but that's just my experience... although it's a backup for me, I still keep it around for it's looks, which are unique, and functionality... Triband for the price that you can get one for now? nice. and still very much a competitive phone if you're not looking for the latest gadgets and offerings. A very good buy for an international phone that can make calls and receive...
