One of the best phones for voice quality, ever!

I got this phone either free or cheap with a contract from Verizon about 10 years ago. As the previous reviewer has stated, you'll get reception where others will not.

I got this phone either free or cheap with a contract from Verizon about 10 years ago. As the previous reviewer has stated, you'll get reception where others will not. I've never used a more clear-sounding CDMA mobile phone since (although the v265 comes close), especially since they started phasing out analog and CDMA 800 MHz technology. Sure, it didn't have a lot of advanced features, but man this was one of the FEW phones that could seriously rival a landline phone and not just claim to. Most of the people I would talk to couldn't even tell if I was on the mobile or if I was calling from home. Well I wanted to upgrade to a flip phone with a color screen, vibrate notification, etc. and I needed to upgrade my service as well for more minutes, so I tried the T730 (or something like that) and went through like 5 of them because the calls would cut out or distort a lot with a signal less than 5 bars. When I tried to have the service put back on my v2260, they wouldn't do it because it didn't have aGPS or some never-used feature required for E911. I had just switched out the ringer for a vibrate motor too, so I would have had at least one new feature. But unfortunately that was the end of the line for my v2260 on Verizon >:[ Since brick phones have started becoming popular ('again', LOL), you'll be hard-pressed to find anything that comes close in terms of voice quality. I still have my v2260 in the hopes that I can hack it one day and get it back on the network. Until then, the v265 is ok, but the fact that I've voluntarily gone back to a phone with technology from about 6 years ago still says something about the j0nx they're making today... Less

Motorola V2260 - Great Phone!

This is a basic no frills phone with 99 memory locations and text messaging capability. Works both CDMA and Amalog systems, which means you'll have calling capability where others will not, especially out in the boonies. It is a very rugged phone. Mine has been dropped several times 6 feet or more onto pavement and has survived just fine. My wife's fell into the bathroom sick full of soapy water - after hosing it off and drying it out it still worked great. We're crying because both our phones got stolen from us a week ago and we haven't been able to find any new units that compare in terms of ruggedness or ease of use. Less
