V325i is the best one.

Samsung A870. Gives you bluetooth, which the 325i doesn't. Does an
excellent job in analog mode.

In what way(s) is the v325i better than the v276?

Basically the v325 is the same phone, but the v276 had reliability
problems.

The v325i is the Bluetooth version. I don't have that one, just the
regular one. Overall its a good phone for reception. I still my v60s
though. (I still have it, just not activated right now)

It did? All the end-user reviews I ever read about the v276 were
stellar. My wife and son both use a v276 as well with no reliability
problems (I use a Treo 700p).

Where are there reports of reliability problems?

I have about six v60 series phones collecting dust in a drawer. Can
they even be activated these days?

It has Bluetooth. It has a better power connector (Mini-US. It's built
better.

On the downside, the V325i can't be used with the Professional
Hands-Free Car Kit, but with the addition of Bluetooth over the V325,
it's not such a big deal.

I stand corrected. It was the 325 (no i) that lacked Bluetooth.

I've had the V276 for almost a year. Other than DH losing the antenna
which we replaced through an online store, I have had no problems with
the phone. Great reception. Good battery life. More features than I'll
ever use or figure out how to use.

Maybe I have it confused with the v265. I never owned either phone,
just heard that one of those phones had problems.

I read the reviews on PhoneScoop and overall they are bad:

http://www.phonescoop.com/phones/use....php?phone=549

As for activation of a v60s - as far as I can tell you can reactivate
them. They are GPS compatible, so as far as that is concerened, you
can still use them.

I reactivated an older V120e for my step daughter while I swaped out
her dead V325 a while back. When I got the new phone, I sent it to her
and swapped ESN numbers and put the V325 into service.

The V265 did have issues with poor audio and microphones. Apparently the
contact between the microphone and speaker and the circuitry would degrade
with time, the result was scratchy audio and a microphone that stopped
working.

Verizon replaced my phone for that issue, so far my second one is doing
fine.

The phonescoop reviews pertain to the 265...not to the 276. I have no
idea why phonescoop is lumping the two models together.

The v27x phones ground through the aluminum case and the gold contacts
would loose connectivity from both normal aluminum oxidation and
atmospheric moisture that caused some kind of corrosion. I v710 and
i850 also have the same grounding problem.
