    I'm looking for a new phone to use with Sprint to replace my Sanyo
    8100. I'm not looking for more features, the 8100 has more than
    enough, it's just that it doesn't fit in my pocket right and the
    signal strengh is weak in my bedroom. I am really happy with the build
    quality of it though, it's just not flat enough for me, so it tends to
    go sideways in the bottom of my pocket and get sat on. My old motorola
    8767 fit flat against my leg, even though it's heavier, it was less
    noticable, and it had better signal strength. The only reason I got
    the 8100 was because the motorola was falling apart.
    I don't ever use the camera and would gladely trade the large screen,
    camera, and PCS Vision capability in for a thinner phone with better
    signal strength.
    So, what's out there, what phones have a good reputation for being
    problem free and well built, and even more importantly, what brands
    are good these days?

    Thanks,
    Keith

    Likely to be the same regardless of phone. Sanyo tends to have better
    reception than some other makes.

    Slim phones with good RF are hard to find these days. Samsungs are the
    thinest IMO (a500, A620, & VGA 1000). Sanyos seem to have better RF in
    fringe areas, but as you mention they are not flat (chunky IMO). The
    Sanyo 5400 looks to be slim, but with the PTT delay who knows when we
    will see it. There is the Sanyo 6400 but it is B&W very slim Vision
    phone, with good RF. But tends to get hot after 5 minutes of use and
    Vision isn't very good on it. I sold my 8100 for the same reason you
    mention. And I just picked up a a500 today and so far so good. I did
    make sure it had the newest software (WD29). I would say check out one
    of the samsungs I mentioned. If it dosn't work out, then check ebay for
    another 8767. Good Luck!
