Which phones have the best reception?

by C-giB / February 16, 2008 4:43 AM PST

I'm with Verizon and am ready to ditch my old LG and upgrade to a new phone. My most important criteria is that the phone gets good reception i.e. can make/receive calls in areas where other phones have trouble.

I've heard that Motorola is the best in this respect. True?

Thanks!

I am not sure if its the phone or the provider?

I have a Treo 680 with service from AT&T. I have great service, and cannot remember the last call that was dropped. I have some dead spots inside my house, but its not a big issue for me. I have used my phone while traveling in a tunnel, in an elevator, and other previously difficult areas.

I have found on Verizon Wireless that LG phones have far better reception than any Morotola or Samsung's I have owned. I have an LG-VX8000 and LG-VX8100 any both are great. The new LG models have gotten good reviews. See consumerreports.org for more info.
