    I'm fed up with my Samsung SCH8500. Problems:
    1) poor reception (misses calls frequently)
    2) low volume (can't hear what the caller is saying)
    Does Sprint offer a flip-phone that has better performance,
    specifically in these two catagories?
    All suggestions/opinions/flames welcomed!

    Well, you are using a 4+ yr. old phone. There are quite a few flip phones,
    all with different features that SPCS offers. Best thing you can do is visit
    one of their stores, and see what interests you, in terms of size, weight,
    features, etc.

    I'm also looking at replacing my two 8500's. My main complaint is not
    low volume, but lack of high frequency audio response which makes it
    difficult to understand normal conversations - it is especially bad
    when both calling and called parties are on 8500's.

    I replaced my SCH-8500 with an SCP-8100. 2) is certainly better. 1) is
    debatable - if it's the case that your 8500 is borken, then yes, a new phone
    will have better reception; if you just live in a bad service area, then a
    new phone probably won't help. Do you know anyone else who has SprintPCS but
    a different phone? If so, get them to come over and see how their signal is.

    The 8100 and the 5400 falsely have a good reputation for good reception.
    They just have a signal meter that goes to 4 bars on almost any signal.


    Side by side with equal reception a Sanyo 7300 has one or two bars,
    where a Sanyo 5400 has 4 or 5 bars.


    The number of Bars is only a relative indication of reception
    (i.e. better than yesterday); and certainly not an absolute measure,
    (i.e. phone a is better than phone b).

    I replaced my Samsung 8500 with a Samsung VGA1000 (A620).
    It has better reception and much louder sound.
