Similar system as 6185 with many pieces interchangable.
Digital drop outs. Does not switch between digital and analog in order to maintain a call.
This is a new phone being offered. It is light and similar in design to the 6185. The same bells and whistles as the 6185 and one might think this is nothing more than the same phone with a different face and colour plate.
The down side is this phone seems to have problems with digital drop outs in weak signal areas. While the phone purports to be capable of either digital or analog service, it does not seem to take advance of this during a call.
We found we lost signal both in the city (with an extensive cell-tree system) or in the country. Tall buildings or valleys of 25 feet affect the signal.
It's scary when the old Motorola 440 flip phone can out perform the newer technologies.
