The call quality is awesome, I always have service, and it has some of the sweetest phones available. The only drawback is that sometimes a second call doesnt get through but thats all.

Didn't know about that Motorola Apple Phone, looking forward to that <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/ylsuper.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>But the Motorola RAZR looks like a great phone; it has all the gadgets and the Alu casing makes it feel really great. Although I'm doubting about the camera.

ihave cingular/att...i have researched the razr...and while it is a pretty cool looking phone, thats about all it is...it is very overpriced...the mpx220 is just as good if not better in ever single way...the hinge is somewhat flimsy, everything gets fingerprints on it very easily and the keypad isnt the greatest, though it is kinda neat...but i dont really recommend it...i will look out for that apple/motorolo phone though...the mpx220 uses the new version of windows mobile 2003 which i heard still isnt that great...so it will be interesting to see what apple can do with motorola...i am still kind of fixated on the mpx220...it does everything i want/need and it is reasonable...so if anyone knows of anything else comparable which is on the att/cingular network, you just may be able to persuade me...the sidekick does seem like a cool phone, but like i said...i'm on cingular/att...
