Another new cell phone Nokia 6236i for Verizon

A while ago I posted about my discontent with the LG VX9800 (the V) from Verizon.  A651_1 couple months after that near the end of December (I think) I picked up on a new release from Verizon.  The Nokia 6236i.  Verizon didn't really push this phone at all and I'm not sure why.  Perhaps it's because the phone isn't too flashy on paper...  No blue tooth, no data capability etc.  It's only got 10mb of storage and it doesn't have a media card slot.  Well then, why oh why would Sweaty want this phone?

All the Nokias I've had in the past have had great battery life, good reception and were really sturdy.  Well, this phone doesn't disappoint.  I've used this phone for a few months now and I absolutely love it.  The Nokia 6236i is by far the best phone I've every owned.

First and foremost, call quality is great!  Earpiece volume is clear and loud.  The speakerphone is loud and clear as well, it's loud enough to use while I'm driving.  Headset volume is really good too though it is wired.  Reception is every bit as good as the Motorola V710 I had and the battery life is awesome!  I used to get 24 hours on the Motorola and with similar use I get 3-4 day battery life with the Nokia.  The screen is small but really clear and bright.  The buttons are small but for some reason I don't have any problems pushing buttons with my big monkey fingers.  Picture quality with the phone is much better than both the v710 I had and the LGVX6000.  Movies are also pretty decent, I take a lot of those these days with the Nokia.

The very best feature of this phone (which Verizon tries to hide) is that the IR profiles on this phone aren't disabled.  I'm able to sync my outlook calendar, tasks, notes and contacts for FREE.  That's right, Nokia has a free IR sync software you can dowload from their website.  You can also browse the pictures and videos you take with the camera and download them to your computer with the software.  It's not bluetooth, but it's still wireless connectivity and you're not paying Verizon for every byte of data you sync. 

All in all this is a sweet phone.  The functionality is great and the form factor is excellent.  This is the phone I was waiting for.

I got kicked off YouTube over two months ago. The reason? Contributing to the success of their service. I uploaded a good number of videos to YouTube, almost none of which I owned the copyright to, all of which I got from other sources on the internet. My first video, the “banned” Xbox 360 ad, was for a time the second most watched video on YouTube, with close to two million viewings click to see banned video (PATNOX.COM)
