Does anyone have some solid info on what's next for Sprint's phone selection?
Hopefully the next round of new phones will have better earpieces.
Yes, especially the Sanyos....
I haven't noticed any difference in the earpeice between my Toshiba (which many say has the best earpeice of any Sprint phone) my Samsung, and my friends Sanyo. Maybe they just got lucky with their phone, because many people complain about the poor sound quality of Sanyo.
Actually I think the LG 5225 has the best sounding earpiece of any Sprint phone. The Toshiba is also good but some of us feel the volume is too low even when set to the highest setting.
My Sanyo sounded good at first, but it seems like the sound quality on the earpiece has been degrading..
Anything new on the Sanyo 5600?
What's the release date on the LG 325?
The 7400 is out now and I hear the LG325 is very close. Probably within a week.
The LG325 is only priced at $79.99, lets hope it's not another Kyocera Slider..
Why? The Kyocera Slider was 'da bomb, yo!
(I'm sorry, you'll have to pardon the pun but I couldn't resist. Not only is the "slider" a horrible phone but it also had a propensity to explode... awesome!)
Boy 1: Hey, why did your aunt and uncle buy you the Kyocera Slider for Chirstmas? Don't they have a tendency to explode?
Boy 2: Yeah. But since I didn't buy it and I got all those other sweet presents, I will use it as a paperweight along with my Motorola T720.
The 5600 will be out in March, probably the second week. Wait for the new Samsung 800, it will absolutely blow you away! The new LG 535 should be out arounf March also. I have played with it but wasn't really impressed.
Sanyo has 2 new lower end models coming out very soon. Look for them to be in the $179 to $249 price range.
I'm not sure if i would go with a Sanyo in the near future, as a matter of fact i managed to get one of my Sanyo 4500/5500 replaced with a Samsung MMA700...
I agree unless they fixed the earpiece sound problem.
Agreed, once Sanyo improves on their earpiece issue their award for best phones well be well deserved.
It's really amazing that they seem to be satisfied with their poor quality earpieces. It makes you wonder if the people at Sanyo realize just how bad they sound or what.
Right, but those lousy earpieces were also approved by the jokers that test these phones. I don't know how they approve phones with such awful sounding earpieces.
Speaking of Sanyo and their lousy earpieces. Has any one tried the 5600 yet? I am having touble deciding on which phone to get when I sign up. I like the a740, but no speakerphone. I like the 5600, but question the earpiece & it will empty my wallet.
Just to let you know, the 5600 doesn't have the new 'roaming' setting like the A740 has. It still has the 'analog' setting. This means you can't force CDMA roaming. I haven't heard about the earpiece yet.
Yes, I know the 5600 dosn't have the new "roaming" option. But out here the only carrier that Sprint roams on is Dobson (AMPS long Hwy 93 to Phoenix), I don't think they have an agreement with Mohave yet to use their new CDMA network. And other then that Sprint's coverage is solid all the way to Las Vegas & out to SoCal. So right now having a speakerphone (Dad is a blabber mouth) is more important then a "roaming" option. The only thing keeping the a740 in the race is its $200 cheaper & has been getting some good reviews.
I think the 5600 should have been priced at about $349-$379 instead of $429. I'm sure it will drop in price in a couple of months like most expensive phones do.
Yea, the price will drop. But I found a eBay seller with great feedback that sells the 5600 for $200 or the a740 for a penny with new activation. But I don't want to wait too much long to port my number. As it then will then be better to wait out my contract, and I don't want to have to use my phone outside to make a clear call when it's 115+. If I didn't have to pay the ETF I would have no problem paying the $200-$250 for the 5600.
When you port your number to Sprint from another carrier you will end up with an MSID that's different than your phone number. I hope that won't cause any problems.
The number is originally a Sprint number from when I had them last summer for a short time. So I would think that their shouldn't be any problems.
As long as the MSID and phone number are the same number you should be fine. When the mismatch occurs due to number porting it can lead to a variety of problems such as callers getting a "the number you have reached is currently not in service" message when they call you. It can also lead to blocked roaming calls.
That's OK, Cingular"s/T-Mo's network is getting overloaded so my family & I get that when we make calls to each other quite frequently. Or the calls will not connect, or someone you don't know will answer the phone when I try calling my VM or other family members.
That sounds like a number porting problem with the MSID and/or MDN. That's what can happen when a phone number is either changed or ported from another carrier. I suggest that if and when you switch back to Sprint you absolutely make sure you get both the MSID and MDN the same number. If they give you two different numbers you are asking for trouble.
I would like to think so but those types of thing are happening to quite a few Cingular customers who I know & havn't ported their numbers. It has gotten worse since just after the holidays, before that I never had any trouble, neither did the rest of my family.
