    I left Sprint a couple of years ago because they never implemented true
    mobile-to-mobile text messaging. For years they just kept saying "it was
    coming soon". Did it ever arrive? Or is it still that mobile-web based
    messaging? Thanks.

    Yes it arrived with a whimper rather than a bang, never a promotion to
    announce its arrival, but many new phones are SMS capable, including the
    Sanyo 7300 which has the additional distinction of not being MADE in
    CHINA.

    Yes, it arrived, but it is currently offered only on select phones. The
    Samsung A680 is the phone I have and it works wonderfully.

    First, everything new going forward.
    Currently, a good portion of the handsets on the website. I'll list the
    ones on the sprint website now that don't support it, and I'll exclude
    PDA phones because I don't know. (except that the Treo 300 doesn't and
    the Treo 600 does)

    These handsets don't:

    A600
    SCP8100
    RL2000
    VGA1000

    All of the other handsets on the consumer section of the website do
    support SMS, and again, I'm not speaking for PDA models... Of course,
    standard disclaimers apply, double check before you make a purchase, but
    I don't think I missed anything.
