    I am looking for recommendations for 3 to 4 phones that I need. I am
    currently with ATT with 3 phones and need to add a 4th phone. Before I buy
    another phone I would like to check this out. The phones will be used in
    Sunnyvale, Berkeley and San Diego.

    What are the current good phones offered for Sprint--good voice quality,
    battery life, ease of use are primary concerns.

    Nights and weekends, family plan, no extra for national roaming (at the
    minimum California) and long distance all would be nice to have. But none
    of these is a substitute for decent voice quality.

    Absolutely none of the above have anything to do with what you want ...
    Those are plan options. As to phone models specifically, I'm partial to the
    Sanyo line of phones, along with quite a few others. In saying that, I have
    a 5300, which has been discontinued. Folks using other models here have
    posted positive results with the new Nokia & Samsung lines as well.

    What you need to do Vijay is a two per job. One of you (you and one of the
    other folks on your plan) need to go to a local SPCS store, and try out some
    of, or all the models, calling out to the other, to see what best fits your
    needs.

    SPCS offers a two week trial period to try out a phone and plan, in the
    areas that you will be using the phones. See SPCS's site for further
    details.

    As for plan options, you do want to get the F&CA option added to your plan,
    if you do decide to go with SPCS, for those times you stray outside of SPCS
    coverage, or when one might be in a dead spot. The F&CA option is only $5/mo
    for all phones on a plan, but can only be added to a national plan.

    I prefer the voice quality of my Samsung VGA1000 (A620) to my wife's
    Sanyo 8100, but she has no complaints with her 8100. I've read that the
    Nokia 3588i has gotten high marks for voice quality (but it has no PCS
    Vision services).

    I think that Sprint PCS coverage is pretty good on the flat parts of
    Berkeley and on campus, but there are many weak spots up in the hills.
