Phone or service provider?

    I have the Samsung sch-3500 on the Sprint PCS network. The combo works pretty well, except when I'm inside certain buildings (including my apartment, unfortunately). Also, the battery barely lasts through the weekend with fairly light call use. Yes, I have upgraded the s/w - a few times.

    My question is, is the reception due to the phone or to Sprint PCS?

    I live in Philly, but make a lot of calls to (and from) the NYC / Long Island area. I was considering switching to Verizon (both Sprint and Verizon offer discounts through my employer). From what I read here, both providers will work well in these areas, with Verizon having a slight edge coverage-wise

    Finally, I'm considering a PDA/Phone combo. I like Palm and don't need color, so I'm looking at the Kyocera 6035 "smartphone".

    Does anyone have experience or comments on the in-building reception of these phones/providers?

    Certain phone types can definitly make a difference when trying to pick up a signal. I think Sanyo phones by Sprint turn out the best reception. Hope I was a little help.

    You may want to try the new Sanyo 4900 so far I have heard nothing but good things about it and reception wise it is suppose to do very well from what I hear.

    I can also vouch for the 4900. I bought one and it slighty outperforms my Kyocera 2255 in signal. The battery life is exceptional and even has "sleep mode" which saves even more battery life when in stand by.
