i'm moving to manhattan and i want to know how well the 5150 holds a signal in the area.
I live in Staten Island, NY (very close to manhattan). I was at a local BestBuy store and they hade several Sprint PCS phones on display amd turned on. There were a few showing like 3 bars and the 5150 displayed a full signal. It's been said that Sanyo phone have the best reception. As far as the Sprint network in NYC, its AWESOME!!
Remember that the amount of signal bars showing on the meters does not necessarily mean you are getting a better signal with one brand over another.
you are right larry, however most sprint technicians and RF technicians/engineers agree that sanyo's have the best reception. 90%of the people i know who work for sprint corporate and retail stores own handsets made by Sanyo, myself included. They also have really good standard batteries. Ive had phones from Denso, LG, samsung. and I am most happy with sanyo's. A definite noticable difference in performance. But if your in a good coverage area such as my hometown NYC, any phone will usually perform well (unless defective). And if youre in a borderline coverage area, selecting the right handset is very important.
Some phones from other manufacturers show more bars of signal than they actually have. I say this because, when you actually dial out, and the connection is made, the signal bars drop down
