    The 7300 has true SMS, the RL 2500 doesnt. There have been reports
    (http://www.sprintpcsinfo.com) that firmware upgrade could give it
    to the RL2500, but its now months past the alleged date for for that
    update.

    2 things --- the first is that there is cap on the cell end, to the best of
    my knowledge, making that setting kinda useless. The second is that code
    also works on the 7300 (just looked at it on my phone).

    As a side note, for those looking over our shoulders -- ##786 does more on a
    7300 than a 4900. Besides listing the phones lifetime data and PRL and the
    like there's a self test mode and a service screen --- which looks like it
    spits out raw signal data from the cell site.

    That change (there was a long thread on it) will make zero difference in
    the rate yoy get from the network.

    As I understand it ShortMail is a form of email, that goes through
    Sprint's Servers and requires you to be online to send or receive. SMS
    is phone to phone.

    Pretty much as Phyllis (Robert M -- and his 60 shadow personalities)
    said --- short mail goes thru mail servers and, as I recall, is an online
    function. SMS, on the 7300 at least, you pick a phone number out of your
    phonebook, type in your message, set the priority, and send it. The phone is
    online for seconds.

    As a note, near every (all others?) carriers use SMS for short messages like
    these --- SPCS was the solo flyer in the shortmail game --- as best as I can
    tell.

    Go to the store --- try 'em --- see which works better, tho I can guess the
    answer to that one.

    What Phillie already said basically. 2-Way SMS is based right on the=20
    phone itself, while Shortmail exists online. It's like the=20
    difference between your ISP's email or your work email that you use=20
    Outlook (or whichever email application is in use), and, for example,=20
    Yahoo! Mail that you use a web browser to read. As with Shortmail,=20
    you have to actually be online to use. More like your ISP, your 2-
    Way SMS runs off a client program put into the phone, just as=20
    Outlook, Eudora, or whatever exists on the PC.

    Other than the rubberized coating and the SMS capability, is there
    anything else you prefer about the 7300? I know of no other difference,
    did I miss something?

    If I may ask, how was the swap accomplished? Private party, SprintPCS store,
    retail store? I may want to swap in the near future and would like to know
    how this is done.

    It can be done at any store that sells Sprint PCS products... or you can
    buy an unactivated phone and do a swap (known as an ESN swap) over a
    landline phone or by calling *2 on the phone you are swapping *from*.
    You will need the serial number of the new phone you are switching to.

    I have had a couple swaps done previously at Radio Shack as well as a
    Sprint PCS affiliate store.
