Can Nokia make a music centric phone with decent reception? I carried the 5310 for a while and loved it, except for the reception. I live and work near very rural areas and the phone wasn’t able to maintain signal on a major interstate much less in some of the areas beyond. It’s interesting that major reviewers like CNET miss some issues like reception as it seems they test on in metropolitan areas (I would love to be corrected on this, incidentally). The cousin of the 5310, the 5610 was the same, -great phone, wonderful music device, but it couldn’t hold a signal well. Nokia representatives have said (reportedly) that the issues come from poor antenna placement, but that’s anecdotal at best.
