I can buy that, I too agree the phone is much better than my 7290, how good I don't know, but so far I haven't had anyone complain about not hearing me and I have not had a dropped call, I just don't use it much as a phone, as this month I have only used 200 minutes total of a 450 plan. In the last 6 months I have accumulated 1600 rollover minutes.
Maybe my problem is I don't have any friends to talk it, it aint the "phone" after all ;)
