    This is the phone my girlfriend insists in getting, the Audiovox CDM-8100.
    She plans on getting it for $199 CAD, and getting a "pay as you go" type deal.
    She doesn't need the features of this phone, and I tried to steer her to a tried and true regularlevel Nokia phone, but she'll have none of it (as she already has a 5120 I think the model is, and doesn't particularly like it)
    She says that her job security isen't that great, and doesn't want a monthly bill, hence the pay as you go plan.
    Just looking for opinions on the phone model, as she (as of now) will be going through Telus, and it will have to be a phone in their http://www.telusmobility.com/nf/pcs/handset_home.shtml list.
    Anybody have one? Good or bad experiences? Recommendations on other phone's? I'd like to be able to sway her to even considering another company, just to have more options, but it's a no-go, so I'm limited to this company. (and note, we're in Canada)
    Thanks in advance

    Having been with a few different providers, I've discovered that, by a long shot Telus is the best there is in Canada. So, as far as providers go, your lady's got the right idea.

    As for the phone, I wouldn't recommend it. You really have to go with the bigger companies, simply because they really do provide the better phone. However, I wouldn't recommend Nokia. Then just aren't as good as Panasonic or Samsung phones. Their reception isn't as good, and the mike pickup tends to suck. Whatever happens though, steer clear of LG phones. I've never had a phone with such poor reception...ever.

    Good luck with all that,
    Rob

    Buy Motorola, I had nothing but problems with the other brands I had and I can always tell when someone is talking on a nokia, sound quality is funky for the person on the other end

    try this forum for some useful info.
    i just changed phones from nokia to lg tm520. the nokia crapped out with increased use and the lg has much better reception and sound quality. (at least out here in the west) as far as your friend, if it's her money it's her decision. (imho)
