    Why is it that Sprint just won't offer a decent phone with Bluetooth.
    They offer a plethora of camera phones, but 1 phone (Sony Ericsson
    T608) with Bluetooth that according to reviews sucks!
    Anyone using this T608 with something good to say about it. Or is
    anyone privey to information on upcoming bluetooth phones?

    If the Treo 610 comes out soon, and SprintPCS carries it, there will be
    a good BlueTooth device !

    According to PhoneScoop, at http://tinyurl.com/2jqfn , there are 5.
    (I got this by going to advanced search, saying CDMA and Bluetooth
    were required, no other specifications or limitations included).

    Motorola Timeport 270c carried by Alltell, Qwest, US Cellular, Verizon
    (discontinued)

    Motorola V710 Planned to be carried by Verizon by mid 2004

    Nokia 6255i, no carrier specified buy a tri-mode Amps 800 / CDMA 800
    and CDMA 1900. Planned Availability of Q4, 2004

    Sony Ericsson T608 carried by Sprint PCS (only available now though
    telematics - this part was not supplied by PhoneScoop)

    Sony Ericsson T61c carried by Metro PCS and Verizon Wireless
    (discontinued)

    (All information provided by PhoneScoop.com)

    So, there are 5, 2 are "discontinued", 2 are not released yet and are
    "planned" to be released, that leaves one that is only available
    though limited channels.

    So as of now, unless you walk into a store with some discontinued
    handsets, no one can go into a store and get a CDMA phone with
    bluetooth technology, they're all either discontinued, "planned" to be
    released, or only available though limited channels.

    The Treo 610 may well be out before the Nokia 6255, and it will have a
    CDMA version with Bluetooth.

    I'm not insulting anything. Just pointing out your own term for=20
    devices that aren't even released yet.

    I have had very decent service from my T608. It has an issue that
    causes it to reboot once in a while but it's not very frequent and
    only a minor inconvenience. BT sync with my PC is good as is the very
    functional interface with my Jabra headset. Could it be better? Sure,
    it could always be better but I'm happy with the fact I have anything
    at all and the 608 does function quite well.

    The T608 is a problematic phone as documented at:

    http://www.sprintpcsinfo.com

    It appears that a large amount of SonyEricsson T608s may be defective.
    Running the Real Time Clock service test (Dial ##786 > Menu Key > Add
    Number > Menu Softkey > Service Screen > Service Tests > Real Time
    Clock) shows that the T608 fails... a lot. Multiple T608s tested have
    shown the test to fail from anywhere between 10% to 66% of the time.
    What makes this even more distressing is that no other working
    SonyEricsson phone that has this test fails it... ever. If you have a
    T608, run this test 10 times and post your results. If anything, showing
    a built-in diagnostic fail to a Sprint Store tech is an easy way to get
    your T608 replaced.
    The Real Time Clock test is designed to test the ability of the phone to
    keep track of time itself. This is especially crucial on CDMA networks,
    as the phone needs to stay in sync with network time in order to
    function properly.

    Re: Sprint & Bluetooth

    And you have reposted this fact why??? I didn't say it was perfect
    and I don't believe the original poster asked if it was perfect. Go
    howl up someone elses tree about a phone that you most likely don't
    have being "problematic". It works quite well for me and I believe the
    original poster asked if anyone had anything good to say about it (and
    since the original text is quoted here, I believe I am correct).
    Please don't bother replying with the same old drivel over and over as
    I've already seen it and will ignore it if I see it again.

    Thank you...

    With all due respect, you are not the moderator of this newsgroup,
    and if someone asks about the T608 it's entirely appropriate to post
    information they or anyone else interested in the T608 may not be aware
    of.

    This is an unmoderated newsgroup and if you're going to quote you
    should consider at least quoting enough to recognize the original
    message. That same person posts the same drivel anytime the subject of
    the 608 comes up. Doesn't matter what the question is, he justs posts
    it.
