    The Sanyo RL2500 (aka Sanyo SCP-5400) (sold for the SprintPCS Network)
    is one great phone. After discount or rebate it goes for $150 (maybe
    less if Retention gets into the act, or is bought from an independent
    dealer, or you work for large company with discount agreement with
    SprintPCS).
    $74.99 after rebates at http://www.cng.intelenetwireless.com

    1. It has the great reception of earlier Sanyos (4700 or 4900),
    it is dual band, trimode so one could roam in Analog areas,
    important if one travels, many new phones no longer come
    with Analog capability.

    2. Its smaller and lighter, being a clam-shell design.
    But when opened up, your ear naturally falls at the speaker
    and the microphone is down by your mouth, making for
    good sound to the other side of your converstaion.
    Setup allows for wide range of volume settings.

    3. The screen is extra bright, such a pleasure after
    squinting at a Sanyo 4700 screen.

    4. The built in speaker phone is far and away the best Sprint offers.
    WARNING, the relatively large speaker has a powerful magnet to drive
    it, keep away from any Digital camera with an IBM MicroDrive,
    or "floppy" disks.

    5. External LCD screen is great for caller ID.

    6. If ReadyLink and GPS positioning are turned off, battery life is
    typically measured in days, very good for such a
    large, bright color screen. If the Ready Link is turned off
    in the setup menu, no RL functionality interferes with its use
    as a plain, not too many bells and whistles phone.

    7. Low priced 3rd party accessories are readily available for
    it because :
    > Uses the same connector/charger plug as a Sanyo 4900
    > Is identical in size to a Sanyo 8100, fits perfectly

    in 8100 case !
    > Places like Target carry those low priced accesories,

    at prices 50 to 75% less than Sprint would charge for
    identical quality OEM accesories.

    8. Don't go broke buying ringtones, games and screensavers for this
    phone from Sprint, when they expire in 3 months. Way too many
    websites out there now where same are available free or almost free.
    Phone comes with 5 ringtones, and 7 melodies to choose from.

    ===========

    I don't use Vision or ReadyLink so I can't comment on their value
    in this phone, I expect use of either could make this phone require
    daily recharging. If thats the case, consider a third party 2nd battery,
    rather than the high priced ($79.99 OEM) battery SprintPCS sells.

    But to get the phone you must use Sprint PCS, a carrier "Robert" has complained
    about incessantly for months.

    That's ok, he was slamming At&T in the ATTWS newsgroup while praising them
    here. I figure this is just another one of his multiple personalities talking.

    I agree with you 100%. I recently upgraded 2 phones (mine and my
    wifes) to RL2500. I also do not use ReadyLink or Vision.

    It is great phone.

    The ReadyLink menu comes up on the screen if ReadyLink has not been
    disabled in SETUP. Then one might accidently hit the left
    soft menu button, and the phone would go into "Preparing Ready Link
    Service" mode; thats the sort of interference I was referring to.
    I have now also disabled all the Animations in SETUP, DISPLAY,
    ANIMATIONS, which also speeds up functionality of the RL2500.

    The Sanyo 4500 is a SprintPCS phone that had a secret recall. The
    speaker phone was buggy such that the other party could not hear you,
    and if one complained, at one point in time you got a free replacement
    to a 4700, I don't know if they'd do anything for you now.

    Oh NOOOOO !!!! A secret recall ????
    Ya know those alien's are really getting bad these days with all the
    'secret recalls ' , 'secret plans' and of course 'secret policy's'......
    What ? you didn't know our troll boy 'secretly ' believes Sprint is
    run by and part of an alien plot to to take over the world ?
    Wait a bit, he'll explain it better than I can ... go ahead nutball,
    tell 'em all the bad secret stuff the Sprint/Alein nation have in store
    for us. G'head, G'head .

    P.S. If any of you out there believe at least 1% of what ol' Phil post's
    please contact me, I have some Lovely vacation property in North central
    Iraq I can sell you cheap.

    Re: Sanyo RL2500

    This phone has the worst battery life of any phone that I have ever seen.
    I had this phone for a week and couldn't stand talking for only five
    minutes before the battery was dead. The VM4500 has rectified that
    problem. I can honestly talk three to four hours no problem. It is worth
    the extra $40. Trust me there is a difference. I sell these things day
    in and day out so spend the extra money!!!

    Chad, I'm not familiar with this model, but let me ask you this. Do you
    think you may of had a bad phone or bad battery? I ask as many a folk use a
    lot of power the very first week of use, plugging in data in the phone book,
    testing out all the features, etc. Did you notice any difference in battery
    life, once the address book was finished and you stopped checking out all
    the other features?

    Also, did you get it tested out at local store to see whether there was a
    phone or battery problem?

    I guess Chad didn't read point 6, and never tried those ideas. Also if
    he was roaming in Analog that would eat up battery life.

    I have posted this earlier, but I too was very dissappointed with the
    battery life of the std battery withthe 2500---I bought an advertised
    (1400) battery from one of the ebay sellers (x-battery)---this has
    made all the difference in the world--I had some battery issue with
    the 5300 but more noticable w/ the 2500---I think that to make a phone
    as small and light as possible, they have went too far with making the
    battery too small--guess that's why they sell the bigge ones---in any
    case, now very happy with 2500

    Re: Sanyo RL2500

    I have the same issue with the battery life. I have also read #6 and find
    it to be correct. I am a heavy user of the 2500 and when I have rl turned
    on then the battery will not make it thru the day. When I turn off the rl
    service the battery lasts at least 2 days.......I am going to try the same
    answer as I have heard from others....I have ordered the extended battery.

    Other than the battery....I really enjoy the 2500......

    Same kind of thing was noted by Verizon users ion their Motorola V60p,
    used for their PTT service.

    The only extended battery I saw on eBay ($11.95) does not specify
    that it is a Li Ion battery, so I would expect it isn't.

    Again, I will say, that if one has Roaming, RL, GPS postioning
    animations and long backlite times turned off, battery life is on a par
    with other phones, ~ 3 days. With RL turned on, 1 day between charges
    does not surprise me.

    Same kind of thing was noted by Verizon users ion their Motorola V60p,
    used for their PTT service.

    that it is a Li Ion battery, so I would expect it isn't.

    I sound like i am selling batteries with these posts; i'm not, the
    batteries that i bought called of all things *X* BATTERY were indeed
    li-on, as their picture shows--;and you're right to be skeptical, as I
    have gotten batteries in the past which were barely worth the price;
    and there are probably better ones than thoes listed, but with the
    price so reasonable, I am very pleased, as they take care of the only
    major issue I had with an otherwise great phone--I see posts that the
    5500 doesn't have the same talk time problem, but I believe the
    batteries are the same (color different), so if it already has better
    talk time with the std battery, would be fantastic with a larger one??

    Yes I did get the phone checked out at a Sprint store. They said that the
    phone was defective. They gave me another one and I took it back too.
    Same problem...this time no problem was found. They said that they have
    had a lot of complaints on that phone. I went through 4 before I decided
    to change to the VM 4500. That is definatly the best phone out on the
    market.

    Dunno, with GPS, RL and Analog roaming turned off, batteries last me 3
    days plus on the RL2500.
