I got a Motorola V180 right at Christmas time (free with the plan I ordered). Happy
Granted, I don't spend a lot of talk-time on it, but it lives up to its reputation as the colossus of long-life batteries. I'm about to recharge it FOR THE THIRD TIME since I activated the day after Christmas, and it's left 'on' at least 10 hours/day. Can't beat the standby time, and the reception seems comparable to others.
