GREAT PHONE!

from Amazon
I got this phone when it first came out and paid full price at the sprint store. It's 2007 now and I've had the phone since 2004, I have had this phone longer than any other.

I got this phone when it first came out and paid full price at the sprint store. It's 2007 now and I've had the phone since 2004, I have had this phone longer than any other. It's sturdy and has lots of features. One in particular that I like is the option to screen calls that come in, you push the "screen call" option and the caller hears your voicemail come up you then have the option to let them leave a message or pick up the call. I have not had any problems with dropped calls or any other. After 3 years, I'm amazed it's still working great. I still have the original battery and everything is holding up just nicely. Best phone I have ever had! Less

Some slick design????

My main problem with this phone is the design. The rubber is coming off, and sprint tells me that will not replace the phone. What is the purpose of having an extended warranty. Sprint will not replace may $370.00 phone unless there is a problem, like ear plug does not work, guess what it does it. Sprint has not replace my phone as of yet. They are willing to give me a different phone that was someone else's phone. I don't think so. This phone cost to much for sprint to give me some crappy phone that belonged to somebody else. Less

No problems here...

The thing works great! I've had no dropped calls and that's from my home which has bad reception for all phones. Very sturdy.

Don't Even Think About It!

from Amazon
The only thing worse than this phone has been Sprint's response to addressing the phone. This phone began dropping calls about 90% of the time a week after I bought it.

The only thing worse than this phone has been Sprint's response to addressing the phone. This phone began dropping calls about 90% of the time a week after I bought it. I took it to the Sprint store which my warranty directed me to and Sprint stated it was Sanyo's problem and I should contact them. After several emails, phone calls (using a land line since my $350 phone wouldn't function), & me reading word for word the warranty that came with the phone I purchased 3 weeks prior, Sprint stated if I took it back to the store, they would exchange it. After researching on the web, the dropped calls are a common complaint which Sprint has chosen to ignore, instead passing the defective phones on to their customers. I've been a satisfied Sprint customer for 8 years but this phone and Sprint's response leaves me feeling like Sprint has been deceptive. I will not remain a customer. Less

I got a lemon

from Amazon
A month after I bought the phone, it mysteriously stopped taking new photos.

A month after I bought the phone, it mysteriously stopped taking new photos. When I hit the capture button, screen went black and then after 10 seconds, came back to the start screen, with no new photos in 'my pictures'. Then I tried to erase a photo that had previously been stored. This caused the phone to turn off. Now, when you hit the power button, the sanyo screen comes on, and then the phone dies. So I can't even turn my 1 month old phone on. The sprint customer service representative says they'll give me a new phone. Also, I didn't have a problem with dropped calls with the old phone. Less

Great Product, Drops Calls

As Sprint phones go, this is a dandy and I've upgraded three times. It's a great size and the rubber side grips are the best when in the car.

As Sprint phones go, this is a dandy and I've upgraded three times. It's a great size and the rubber side grips are the best when in the car. The speaker phone is excellent, much better than the 8200. The buttons are large and easy to use. It has a "contact" feature that uses voice recogntion to find phone book numbers. A great feature for lot's of numbers. I've had problems with it not connecting to 800 numbers and it just drops calls, even with 5 bars of signal strength stating "signal faded" After several calls to sprint technical support, they have decided to provide me with a new phone. we'll see if the dropped calls stops.

After doing extensive homework on all the phones, i decided on this phone due to the multimedia and readylink features. I have not been disappointed with either. i was aware that sprintTV wouldnt be that but about 15 fps and thats not hdtv quality but its still pretty cool. Readylink is clear in my area just takes time to get use to use the buttons. The camera and camcorder features are ok and anyone looking for professional quality pictures or exceptional video recording this isnt for you. The camera and camcorder are average but do you expect from a cell phone under 200. For the price and the money this phoen is pretty awesome and i have been extremly satisifed. Oh by the way dont throw the manual away because this phoen as so many features. Less

Nice Package

from Amazon
This phone has just about everything available on a wireless handset: calendar, camera (still and video), TV, games, ringtones, internet, PC sync and changeable faceplates. I've owned this phone for about 2 months and still enjoy it. I definitely believe that the phone should come with an extended battery as part of the package.

this phone sucks save your money for a downpayment on a home

from Amazon
This phone is expensive and horrible. Mine full on broke after just 2 1/2 months. It just decided to stop powering on! So then, I got a new one and it just wouldn't pick up a signal. It's a horrible phone and sprint is a horrible provider.
Amazon

Great Phone!

from Amazon
This is a great phone with great features! I've owned it for a little over 5 months. It does just about everything a gadget junkie would want it to do. And it's surprisingly not bulky for such a multi functional phone. It's definately worth the money.
