    I've had the phone for over 8 months and have been perfectly happy with
    it.Only in the last month or so the problem started. The reception gets
    very choppy and sometimes it drops the call. Other times i have to
    hangup and call from a land line.
    Since i'm on a family plan, i have 3 other phones in the house which
    works just fine. When i am home and the phone starts to act up, i'll
    borrow one of the other phones which works great.
    The problem is not isolated to just my home, its everywhere.
    I think the Sprint network is as good as or better than any other
    cellular service out there. Hey, its wireless, it can't be perfect.
    My problem is with customer service.

    Well, I only have one cell phone so I have nothing to compare it to at
    present, but my previous phone didn't have the best reception here. Then
    again, it was really old (5+ years) so it wasn't exactly a benchmark for
    comparision. Perhaps your VM4050 is defective, as opposed to the overall
    model. You might want to take it into a store to be looked at, or for
    replacement (make sure to have them transfer your #'s and data first if you
    do this). I doubt that they'd let you trade it for a different model, but
    perhaps they would do this if you insisted. Chances are that it would be a
    low-end refurb though.

    Sorry that I can't give you more specific advice but I'm not a technical
    expert. I only responded because I also have a VM4050 and am fairly happy
    with it.

    Also, you're still responding to your own posts. Not sure why this is
    happening.

    Good luck.
