    Hello,
    A few weeks ago, my trusty Kyocera 6035 bit the dust. The SprintPCS
    insurance carrier sent me a Samsung i500, but didn't send the software or
    cradle, since those are "accessories". Accessories? How am I supposed to use
    the thing? They also sent me a charger that didn't fit. Dubious phone
    support, and a corporate shrug of the insurance company's shoulders later, I
    bought an aftermarket charger, which arrived several days before a second
    charger (also non-working) arrived from the insuror.
    SprintPCS says I can take my old Kyocera cradle to any PCS store and get the
    new cradle and software from them. None of the Sprint stores I've been in,
    in two states and Washington DC, have the i500 stuff. The clerks look at me
    like I'm trying to rob them. So I still can't synch my i500, and I still
    don't have the software or the cradle.
    Is it me, or am I using the wrong cellular carrier? Should I have to put up
    with this just to get a working Palm phone?

    Thanks for listening,

    Dale

    Although there is a certain "buck stops here" kind of responsibility that
    Sprint might have, the insurance policy, as you probably know, is handled
    by another company and you should try to hold them responsible.

    On the other hand, a I500 is worth at least-5 times a 6035 and therefore I'd
    say you got a great deal already. If I could have traded in my old 6035 for a
    I500, I would have done it in a second... It won't take much to get the whole
    thing working. You can always pick up a USB sync/charging cable from
    www.boxwave.com for $16. And a useable charger for $5-10. So, while Lockline
    should get you these things, it is not a disaster to handle it yourself
    either. Just a $16 investment now gets you USB synching and charging
    while you wait for Lockline to make good...

    Thanks, Daniel. LockLine has made clear that they're not going to do what's
    right. And truly, I loved my 6035. While the i500 is neat, it isn't really
    functional without a cradle, and the synch software is tailored to the
    Samsung, so my Boxwave (yes, I have one) can synch some things, sometimes
    with generic Palm 4.1
    Yes, I can hold Sprint responsible -- they're the ones who contracted with
    Lockline, and should either do right or make THEM do right. I'm pretty sure
    that's why I pay them, you know?
