As far as voice quality, dropped calls, Analog performance?
I posted a question about Verizon Tri-mode phones (in San Francisco area) a while back and it seemed that fewer and fewer companies are making them. LG sounds like the best choice, the VX6100 in particular. However I need to purchase the phone just before I go up to our mountain cabin I can test its analog capabilities (April 1st is our next trip). It's is a 4 hour drive so it's not convenient to just buzz up there.
Unfortunately Verizon is no longer offering the VX6100, only it's replacement the VX5200. I can however still buy a new VX6100 direct from LG. After reading reviews, it sounds like the 6100 might be a bit better in everything except battery life.
Has anyone compared these two phones, especially in Analog mode? I don't have a problem buying the 5200 from the local Verizon dealer with the option of returning it if it doesn't work well at our cabin, but since I would have to buy the 6100 direct from LG over the internet, returning it would be more of a hassle.
Any thoughts appreciated
