Ah, maybe I should have mentioned also that I use AT&T with my 8290 in the
Sacramento area. When I travel around northern California, such as to San
Francisco, it continues to work great, overall good reception.

My son also told me to get some kind of little additional antenna for it,
which he added to it for me and we got some kind of protective glove-like
covers for them, too. All has continued to work fine. Not sure if I notice
an improvement with that little antenna or not, but my son thinks so.

Also, my daughter recently got the Nokia 3390
<http://www.nokiausa.com/phones/series/3390/1,4511,,00.html> and loves that
one. It seems like a good phone, too, and I like the feel of that model as
well. She also uses AT&T here in the Sacramento area and all over California.
