    After two weeks of calls to CS, I stopped by a Sprint store
    and exlained my problem. They were willing to swap out with
    refurbished 4900, but didn't have any in stock today - perhaps
    tomorrow. Store rep recommended that I call first as inventory
    changes daily.

    My Sanyo will be out of one year warranty at end of month and
    I'm afraid I won't find another 4900 in time. They gave me a
    choice to go with the Samsung A400.

    Are there any outstanding issues with this phone? I'll miss the
    speakerphone as its usefull while waiting on hold for Sprint CS.

    Oh, only think I can think of is the text formatting is very slow,
    i.e. to ***** out "ABC" you have to wait almost two seconds before
    hitting the #2 key again or it will scroll the A to a B.

    I think, except for speakerphone, it's a significant step up to the=20
    A500. Oh, and it's got OK (but not great) reception.

    About that text entry: With the A500 and 4900 both, you can move to the=20
    next spot immediately by pressing the right navigation key. The N400=20
    uses the SPACE/# key. So 2[right]22 actually results in "AB" (depending=20
    upon the shift setting at the time).

    --=20

    Kinda funny...I was just on the phone to Sprint Vision support and
    asked about the A500. The tech said it was not near as god a phone
    as the Sanyo - mostly in the reception (transmissino) area. He
    said that if I simply can't get a 4900, ask for the new "4900" with
    Ready Link as its basically the same phone.
