Very solid phone with excellent fringe reception

I needed a new phone after my existing Samsung a460 broke down.

I needed a new phone after my existing Samsung a460 broke down. I was directed to a Bell Mobility Corporate Store for a replacement because I liked that phone, but there they told me to get an LG 5550 which was supposed to have very good reception, but turned out to be only marginally better. For $306 inc. taxes, I wasnt too impressed. Id rather have good reception than a snazzy screen with melodious tones. I got the Kyocera 3245 on loan a few days ago from a friend of mine who was not using it, to see whether it would work any better, and have been testing it since. If I like it, Ill just have to pay the remaining amount he owes ($80) which I find reasonable considering it appears to be basically as new. I have been testing the phone where I live (in the Laurentians) to see how it would perform and all I can say is, Wow, what a range! This phone has incredible reception for a Bell Mobility phone (Ive been using a Fido on trial for the last ten days and reception on the Fido/Rogers network is vastly superior, so good that Im thinking Ill stick with the Fido, but thats another story!!!), in fact that phone is MUCH better than any other BM phone I''ve had previously including my previous Motorola 550, 650, the Nokia LX5 3W I had prior to that and the three Samsungs Ive had since, the 310, the 3530 and the a460): for the first time, I get coverage over a very dangerous stretch of road between my home and the main highway, where I had NO coverage at all before. And this, from a phone that has been used quite a bit so far (1000 minutes, about as much as I used my old Samsung a460 before!!!). As for features, well, it''s an older phone, what do you expect! It doesn''t have much in terms of feature compared to the newer phones, so I can''t give it a high mark, but honestly, do you really need a cell phone with colour screen with a camera? if you are looking for geek factor here, this is NOT the phone for you! That being said, it has some games and it has a decent speakerphone as well (at least for a quiet environment). The phone appears to be very strongly built. There is a rubber available for it to protect it from shocks as well. You can see it''s designed to last. I has a very useful speakerphone feature. The earpiece volume is not the highest but is acceptable. The menu system is very efficient and easy to navigate. The mono screen is clearly very visible in sunlight and OK in the dark (most newer colour screens that Ive seen are basically useless outside in bright sunlight). In conclusion I''d say it should be great for an active lifestyle. The battery life is not great in analog mode, but neither was that of the LG 5550 Ive been trying. In digital mode, Im told its supposed to be a few days. Im used to this anyway. That is the nature of Analog use: I have a car charger for this when Im in analog zone. I suggest you get one if you are in that situation. So if you are on the Bell Mobility network and are looking for a rugged phone that has excellent reception, by all means get it. Less

It does it's job well, batteries are a problem

I have used this phone for 12 months, which is about 42,000 minutes of talk time for me, it has cost me over $300 in batteries, not including the one it came with. the clip on the battery cover broke very easily, and all fo the numbers have worn off the keypad, the handsfree feature works well in quie...More
I have used this phone for 12 months, which is about 42,000 minutes of talk time for me, it has cost me over $300 in batteries, not including the one it came with. the clip on the battery cover broke very easily, and all fo the numbers have worn off the keypad, the handsfree feature works well in quiet environment but is fairly sketchy in the truck, rubberized cover is a great feature that saves it from the odd bump, it often gives me an echo of my own voice in certain areas, too random to figure out what the cause is. The antenna has only been replaced once but is a major weakness of this phone, it fits easily in most pockets, and the backlit screen is easy to read in the dark, text messaging seems like an afterthought with this model. I guess it's time for a new one again. It has been discontinued, but I might consider getting another, depending on the competition. Less

Awesome Phone!

Great phone with all the good features. I haven't found another phone with everything like this one.I love to put people on hold when they call.

It's a phone to buy

This phone is simply great. The features make it practical and simple to use.
