Okay, I have had my 3589i for a day and I do not like it very much because
it feels like I am holding a brick to my ear. Also, the color screen looks
washed out and I am considering exchanging it for a V60s. Can anyone tell
me about their experience with the V60s? I'm don't need a color screen, or
bells and whistles, I just need a good solid phone with a decent volume on
the ear piece. Battery life is not that important to me as I would opt for
a car charger. Thanks.

60s is a great product. But id you think the screen is washed out on the
3589 you'll hate the 60s. I gave my kids a 3589 and I think the screen is
great. But it does not have the functionality of the 60s for my needs. YMMV.

I just upgraded to a v60s phone a couple of days ago. Its a great
voice phone. The calls are clear and reception is good (better than my
old v120e). It has a good loud receiver and a good speaker phone.

I used to be with Cingular when it was Cellular One. I changed to
Verizon two years ago. My contract was up and was eligable for a "New
Every Two" and got the v60s. Sure, had to sign up for another 2 year
agreement, but happy I did.

And if you own a V60s, you should know that there is an inherent problem
with receiving calls if the KEY volume is set to 0 in *any* of the
_5_Ring Styles.

I just recently learned this, and I own 3 V60s's. If any of the modes
has the key volume set to 0, after cycling the speakerphone on and off
approx 8 times - the ringer ceases to ring when a call comes in.

Just a FYI...
