- realized just before I'd walked out, after I'd filled out all the paperwork and signed for it a half a dozen times that although the one they sold me (an LG phone) was $20 cheaper than the Motorola they'd said was most compatible with my old one, and they told me it was better in every way (except the antenna is not extensible) -- but customers like it better, it's able to perform as a modem (if I buy the $60/month service), it has all sorts of musical bells and whistles (which I don't want) -- it is missing one thing that the Motorola had: The Motorola is a tri-mode, and this one is Digital Only. (The sales-person says she uses hers all across Canada as well as the states and doesn't drop calls. I guess I'll see. I have 30 days to return it.)
