Hi, you gurus out there:

I'm debating over whether to get a Nokia 3565, Motorola T720g, or Motorola
V300.

I've heard horror stories of the T720g - dropped calls, 30-seconds to
power up the phone, etc.

I've also heard stories of the V300 - shuts on/ off by itself, screens
stuck with an image that can't be removed until poweroff, etc.


Does anyone else out there have these problemes?

And if I'm just going to use a phone for basic use (ie. RF, clarity, no
dropped calls, etc.) out of the 3, which would you pick?

Thanks for your advice in advance:

I stay away from Nokia, I have a T720g and love it (
www.freewebs.com/siteofhimself ) and have never had any of those supposed
problems at all on Rogers, but am planning on buying a V300 if I can do the
same things to it as I can a T720g.
Keep in mind, there are "horror" stories to just about any item, be it cell
or not. Best bet is to buy it with term at a store like Best Buy or Future
Shop with the 2 year warrantee, it has worked great for me in the past with
cells, cd burners, etc.

BTW-- the 30 second power up sounds about right, but--so what?

I love my V300! I started out with a T720 and am glad I spent the
extra money to go with the V300. It's an incredible phone.
