Summary: A really great phone. I have used it in the caribbean, canada, mexico, and various countries in europe; and slipping in a domestic SIM card - from my domestic phone, it works great locally in the USA - no surprise.
Summary: I love this model! It has very good antenna range compared to the new phone it is replacing. We live in a marginal reception area, and I haven't seen it lose coverage yet. (one month) It has fewer bells and whistles, this means fewer things to go wrong. What it does have: Volume control (a must for me,) speaker is great. You can program the soft keys to what you want, including the one on the outside side.
