    Well, I am SICK of my Motorola V400. I get poor reception everywhere, all the time. Sometimes the phone just cuts out when I have reception. Sometimes the battery is full, and then it just drops rapidly and is dead with in 2 hours.

    It's time to get a new phone. I am on Cingular.

    I was looking at the Nokia 6102 flip phone. I read that it gets AWESOME reception, is very nice to use, nice screen, etc. Anyone have this phone?

    Any reviews or comments, suggestions?

    I looked at this phone, but I went with the Moto Razr instead. :D it is Nokias first flip phone, so I think they did very well. The one thing is that the camera does look a little odd. (a little big.) I would've gotten this phone if T-mobile didin't start carrying the Razr.

    I used a 6102 prototype for a bit, thought it was a pretty good phone for a clamshell. Nice "feel".

    Great feel, great OS, great keypad, decent camera, and good design. Also, the reception on mine is great, and I get anywhere from 3-5 days out of the battery with normal usage. It's a damn good phone.

    the difference is sprint's network. all the cool phones are gsm but sprint uses...either cdma or tdma or something like that.

    I have heard the RAZR is cool, but for me, it doesn't have anything that WOWS me.

    It is too fragile for me. I don't want a phone (at my age) that I am scared to drop, or sit on accidentally. The Nokia feels really durable.

    I have a question, don't know if anyone can answer it, but here it is.

    So on our Cingular account, we have my Mom's number, and 3 "family phones" for a total of 4.

    I wanted a new phone, so I went on the account online, and under my moms number it said I could upgrade her phone. So I clicked "upgrade phone", and it took me to a page with prices, and the Nokia 6102 was a $40 upgrade. I went through with it, and I have a slight feeling that Cingular is going to try to lock me in for 2 more years because I got this phone.

    I think they are going to say "It was $40 with a 2 year agreement (which we are already on). But the thing is, I clicked on "upgrade phone", and my Moms was the only one "eligible" for an upgrade.

    I guess time will tell.

    Actually it is at least their second flip phone. The first was a long time ago.. model 282.

    It was only available in analog and was out about the time digital was starting to be the norm so it did not fare very well.

    To all the people with Razr's.. Are you happy? They look kinda cool, too wide in my opinion, but I have heard some pretty negative things about the battery life. I am also at the point where I am going to have to lose my beloved V400 and am thinking bout the razr..
