    I just got a 3588i as a free add-a-phone on a new Sprint PCS account. Now
    I'm told there's no desktop charger available. True? If so, I'll return it
    to Sprint for a tradeup. Can anyone answer the question and/or recommend a
    similar quality phone. Our needs for a secondary phone are minimal. It
    doesn't matter if it's a 'candy bar' or a flip-phone. No vision services
    required. Dual-band tri-mode is.

    TIA

    Perhaps Sprint doesn't sell it, but...

    http://www.nokiausa.com/nokia_access...31,,00.html#74

    lists the DCV-15.

    Says it's compatible with the 3589i, which is Verizon's version of the
    Sprint 3588i, should also work with the 3588i. Also works with the 3587i,
    sold by Midwest Wireless. All are CDMA phones with the same body.

    Check with Nokia to make sure that the DCV-15 will work with the 3588,
    as they don't specifically say on the website that it does.

    It's the same phone! What's with this "not compatible" crap?

    Well, I was considering a 3589 with Verizon, and now that I've decided to
    switch to Sprint I was going to look into the 6225, but unfortunately it
    does not seem like Nokia's gotten any more intelligent. I gave up on them
    a couple years ago and started buying Kyocera handsets instead of Nokias...

    Not sure what I'm going to get from Sprint, as Sprint doesn't currently sell
    any Kyo models.

    It doesn't seem logical to me, either, but don't want to burn something
    internally, then be told I voided the warranty.

    Get the Sanyo 4920, you won't regret it.

    I don't want a ReadyLink phone (and wouldn't be using ReadyLink, so getting
    one is pointless anyhow). Any suggestions for a video phone?

    Well the 4920 is still a great phone, you can disable the Ready Link if you
    don't need it. Last camera phone I had was the Sanyo 5300 I don't really
    know anything about the newer ones.

    same is true of the (Motorola) V60v - SprintPCS must have some special
    requirements, otherwise I can't see why the manufacturers would
    "break" accessory compatibility?

    It is not the manufacturer that "breaks" the compatibility it is
    Sprint. Sprint directed Motorola to change the connector to the v60v.
    I assume it so Sprint can sell more accessories

    I can tell you that the old Nokia 6160 charger I used with my AT&T Wireless
    works with this phone... I think all the nokia chargers are pretty much the
    same. I'd look into the specs, but I can tell you it charges my 3588i
    without a hickup.
