    Audiovox 660x reception vs. Samsung i500

    I was just wondering if anyone has both phones and could tell me if the reception is better / same / worse with the Audiovox vs. the Samsung.

    Obviously the Samsung does analog, so we can't compare that, but I was wondering about the PCS and digital roaming.

    I've been frustrated lately with the i500 reception and I was hoping a shinny new X-mas present to myself could fix this.

    I can't say much about the i500, and this is my first CDMA phone. But wow is the reception great. That's why I switched from T-Mobile/H6315. I have not dropped a call yet, going on 3 weeks. It seems if there is any signal it works. I'm in Framingham MA to Worcester MA up to central NH. Only time it has not got any signal is in some valleys in mountains up in NH.

    I have got the dreaded sound though. But it has not happened for good week and a half now.

    I'd be interested in this as well. While my i500 has better reception than either of my previous Sprint phones (i300 and i330), it still isn't great.

    I had a i500 for a year, and now have the 6601. I can say without question the 6601 has MUCH MUCH better reception. The i500 never had great reception at all, just OK. But the 6601 has the absolute best reception of any Sprint phone except the T608.

    Cannot comment on the I500 but the 6601 has great reception. I say equal to my MOto timeprt and SAnyo 4900, both star performers.
