    I'm rough as hell on a phone. The Rzr or Slvr wouldn't hold to me. That's one of the reasons I went with Nextel. Their phones are built tough. My i560 is encased in rubber and is said to be able to with stand a 2 story drop. It's built to military specs for dust/vibration/water resistance.

    You do realize that the whole military specs thing doesn't really mean jack shit anymore right? Sorry couldn't resist.
    Being the best is not what always counts. What counts is always trying your best.

    Remember who you are, and where you came from. That way you never get a big head.


    May those that lost their lives in 9-11 RIP, for the things you did not many could do. You left so many behind so that you could save so few. For now we stand strong as one, and will not look back till the fight is done. (me)

    For years I didn't have a cell phone. I just never had the need for one. Two days ago I came home from work and there was a package for me. I opened it up and inside was a Nokia phone w/ a prepaid plan.

    One of my very good friend's (she is a gem!) bought it for me because she thought I should have one in case something terrible happened. I charged it up, stuck it in my handbag, and there it will sit unless there's an emergency.

    I like my land-line better.

    Well I'll disagree. I know it doesn't mean that it's indestructible but it is more rugged than any other phone I've had.

    I think this phone may just be able to stand up to my abuse....but I bought the insurance just in case.

    Darin, I had the older version of that a few years ago, when it first came out and it did withstand A LOT. When I got it and last I knew the i560 didn't have a color display and such... does your new version of it have music ringtones or does it only do polyphonic still?

    Polyphonic as standard. But of course you can d/l music tones. It does have the color display now. It also comes with Telenav navigation. 60 is free and $10 a month if you want to keep it. I'll play with it for a while but I won't keep it.

    So, you can download the music ringtones and they'll work? My old one could only handle the poloyphonic.

    Ahh... I just realized. I had the i530...

    I d/l Sweet Child O Mine ring tone and it plays fine. But it is LOUD!!!!!

    The i530 and i560 are very similar. the i560 has a display on the outside so you can see who's calling before flipping it open. I guess it's an upgraded verion of the 530

    While I like the SLVR it is still expensive even with my Govermant discount. But at the same time I also like the phone and might just get it anyways who knows.
    Govt Discount should be 20% off your service and 30% off the hardware. Should bring the SLVR down to $140 from 200. It's new and pretty much the best thing on the market with those features, unless you're a text messager and looking to upgrade to something like a TREO.

    If you're afraid of dropped calls - the SLVR appears fairly identical to the RAZR in design so I don't know how it would compare. They both have the same internal antenae.

    Actually mine is set at 15% on service and 60% on phones and 30% on the accessories.

    I'm thinking of switching from Verizon to Sprint. But, I'm like a major geek and have a Treo 600. I saw that Sprint has a PDA phone (not the treo).
    Any fellow Geeks have One? And how is the service/ range in general?
