    Great phone in every way. Great signal strength as well.

    Well, it would be better if it was free with contract.

    I tried it, it's an excellent phone. But, I decided that for $79 more I
    could get the same thing in a dark blue color (I hate silver) and a
    camera, so I went with the VM4500 instead.

    However, if you can do without a camera phone, then by all means, go
    with the RL2500. It's a great phone.

    I have a RL 2000 and RL 2500 and I love them both. The 2500 has a great color
    screen but the 2000 is good quaily (not to say the 2500 is not)

    do the accessories from the 4900 plug work with the 2500?

    Yes they do. The Sanyo 4900, 5300, 8100, RL2000, RL2500, and VM4500 all
    use the same plug and have the same power specs.

    I must admit, the RL2000 disappointed me. I saw one working and on
    display at a Sprint store, and RL2000 is very clearly a 4900 that's had
    some plastic molding slapped onto it and the appropriate hardware and
    software kludges added to support ReadyLink. Other than that, the phone
    is still slow to respond to keypresses (I'd say maybe even slower than
    the 4900 was), the screen still isn't nearly as bright and easy to read
    as the 8100 and newer phones, and the new housing makes it even bulkier
    than the 4900. Vision was also unbearably slow, just like on the 4900.
    You'd think Sanyo would at least put some faster hardware in there to
    justify the hefty price tag.

    The only thing the RL200 has going for it is battery life. It's a big
    phone with a relatively big battery, and that helps.

    outstanding --- glad that a new phone doesn't necessarily mean another wad
    of accessories. Might head down to the store with my laptop and see if
    there's any truth to the throttled back data issue that was kicking around
    here within the past several weeks. Hell, might even buy one, if the screen
    is brighter than a 4900. (no cares about the PTT stuff, at all)

    Thanks Isaiah.

    Yeah, Sanyo definitely did the accessory thing right. Every other phone
    manufacturer I've tried specializes everything for every phone,
    including the accessory port which you don't always have to change. I
    can understand that batteries and cases are going to be different based
    on each phone model's unique design, but at least let me keep my charger
    and data cable! It's nice to see that Sanyo got the clue on this one.

    I tired it, it's not throttled. If you use the old Sanyo USB drivers on
    a USB 2.0 computer though, the connection speed WILL claim to be
    28.8Kbps. However, a quick speed test will provce that you're going a
    lot faster than 28.8.

    Speaking of which, I can't seem to find Sanyo's USB phone drivers on
    their site anymore. I wonder if they got heat from Sprint for making it
    available? Good thing I archived a copy of the zip file...

    I apologize in advance if I missed something previously posted
    but...according to phonescoop the RL-2500 is not "data capable". Are you
    finding that the 2500 can be used with the PCS connection manager to access
    the internet via Vision with speeds in the 100Kb+ range like I can with my
    4900?

    Bob / Isaiah .... fwiw the FD 8100 drivers work with the 4900 / 5300, and
    support USB2 ports.

    Laptop speed seems to be the same, but had to download drivers from
    futuredial.com. connect seems a little flakey, but that may just be
    typical.

    Seems like a very good phone, but found both the analog roam and
    digital roaming to be weak, at least compared to the analog roam of
    the 4900, which was pretty good. The built in vision on the phone
    seems at least 5x faster than the 4900. Power cords are the same as
    the 4900. Didn't activate the ready link, went with free p2p.

    I was just on phonescoop's site for the 2500 and didn't see any comments
    were it's not data capable. I noticed that there was Data Capable category
    (answered with either a Yes or a No) as some other phones listed, but that
    doesn't mean it's not data capable.
