    Are there any other (new) phones besides those shown on the SPCS
    website/store that will work on the SPCS network? A while back I
    thought I saw a phone only available at Radio Shack but for the SPCS
    network. Am still looking for a small thin clamshell phone and don't
    need no steenkin cam.

    SPCS is about ready to release a few new phones, one of which is a Sanyo
    5400. http://www.phonescoop.com/phones/phone.php?id=372

    I haven't had a chance to hold it, but the Samsung VI660 (aka A660)=20
    could be for you. It looks to be pretty imminent in release, and will=20
    support the new SMS once we get that going.

    That does look very small, and the non-train voice dial looks
    interesting. Thx

    If you just need 2G I would suggest an A460. Its what I use & it is super
    thin & light.

    The 5400 is the new Ready Link 'Push to talk' phone. It's a little thicker
    and heavier than the 8100 (camera phone), also going to be a bit pricey.
    However I will say it has awesome graphics, very easy to use, and the ready
    link feature works really well.

    There are many cell phones that SprintPCS stopped selling that are still
    available elsewhere. Some recent examples are the Sanyo 4900 and the Samsung
    i330. They can be found on Amazon.com, in some Radio Shacks, and on eBay.

    Phones that SprintPCS has never sold may be phones that SprintPCS will not
    activate should you buy one.

    ===================
    I don't work for SprintPCS
    I never worked for SprintPCS
    I can be honest

    Big gotcha with the PTT phones. Many folks on the Verizon group complaining
    about the Motorola v60p (their PTT phone) and since SprintPCS is going to use a
    similar technology, it will likely have the same issue.

    One feature of PTT is being able to identify which of your contacts is
    available. How does the SprintPCS network know that a phone is available? In
    Verizons'case, the phone checks into the network every 5 minutes to tell it its
    available. Fine, except that makes for a serious drain on the battery. And
    folks are complaining the battery life is less than 1 day, even when doing
    "nothing". Cause even when doing nothing, its effectively making a call every 5
    minutes.

    So the Sanyo 5400 likely will have the same issue.
