<strong>My question is: Does the T610 have better reception than the T68i? I have only one complaint with my T68i, and it's about the poor reception. I get dropped calls every once in a while, I very rarely seem to get a very strong signal... and I'm in the middle of Los Angeles for cripes sake. Most of the time it works but even in my house it's marginal.
Compare that to my previous phone, a digital Nokia, which had perfect reception in our house and just about everywhere else. I mean the toys on the T68i are great, I sync it to my Mac, I use S-E Clicker which is awesome... but it's a PHONE. If it doesn't work when I need it to then what's the point?
So somebody please tell me they cleared that up with the T610 and I'll upgrade to it when it's available. BTW I'm using AT&T service, which is what I was using with our Nokia.</strong><hr></blockquote>
The T68i is YEARS old, back from Ericsson days even, and the problem was fixed a long time ago. People were just willing to accept it to have a T68i, so they sold well. And providers didn't mind if you had a few more dropped calls to use up your minutes.
Anyway, RF on the T300, for instance, is outstanding, so I imagine it'll only be better with the T610. I wonder how the aluminum shell will impact it, if at all.
