    I can actually hear the person calling me Sprint had a 150 rebate
    and then I get a $50.00 credit for my old phone. They do make you get
    the vision thing for 2 months for free and when I get my rebate I can
    cancel it. I don't really know what the vision is and they were waaay
    to busy to answer any questions today.

    Can anyone tell me how the text message program works? Can you text
    other carriers or only Sprint people?

    I love the voice activated calling feature...voice recognition is
    extra $$$...what does that do different..

    Thanks to anyone that answers me..I don't mean to be a pain asking too
    many questions..

    I guess I need to call a Sprint service person

    I asked the same question a couple of days ago.
    for verizon, apparently you can. You send a message to

    replace the obvious above with the actual phone #

    I use the built in Voice recognition too. I don't exactly know why one
    would want to PAY for voice command either.

    That might help Nicki, Although, I have got more answers here, than I
    have any where else.

    Voice Command holds more numbers.. I want to say it's 300, but I don't
    recall exactly, and supposedly Sprint's system will recognize any voice
    saying the name, not just your own voice. It's supposed to be more user
    friendly but I haven't bothered to pay for it to find out.

    On Verizon, you can also set up an alias. I used to be sjsobol [AT] vtext.com,
    for example, and that email address delivered text messages to my phone just
    like MyOldVerizonNumber [at] vtext.com. You should ask the person receiving the
    message if they have an alias and if they prefer you to use it.

    a> I believe Voice Command allows for more voicedial entries than most phones
    b> You can do digit dialing for phone numbers you don't have saved (in other
    words, say "Dial 2 1 6 5 5 5 1 2 1 2" to dial 216/555-1212)

    However, Samsung handsets eliminate those two issues - and that's the number
    one reason I'm such a big fan of Samsung phones on Sprint, in spite of their
    shortcomings. You don't need to train the voice services, and you don't have to
    create distinct voice dial entries for each phonebook entry. And Sprint
    Samsungs do voice digit dialing on their own without requiring Voice Command.

    The built-in voice recognition on the Sanyo MM7400 does digit dialing,
    voice tags, and recognizes names from the contact list. It works very
    well...much better after I did the voice training, which took very
    little time.

    Sweet. I wasn't aware there were any non-Samsung phones that did digit dial.
    None of the older Sanyos apparently do. Sanyos have the advantage of having
    consistently better RF circuitry, so the additional voice dial features are
    definitely A Good Thing.

    It seems to recognize strong voices better..I am having a bit of a
    problem.....so I need to talk lower. I said home and it tried dialing
    Pam and I tried to call my husband's cell number.... I have him down
    as - Boss ( though he isn't) in the phone book and it tried to dial
    Bomps ( my dad)

    I downloaded the instruction book from online and it had over 300
    pages..

    Actually, that rebate check may take 8 to 10 weeks to show up. If you find
    you don't like Vision and the pending addl extra expense after 60 days, Just
    cancel it in 30 days ...

    It's the service that allows you do send and receive SMSs on your phone,
    download ringers & pictures & games, send pictures & videos you take to
    others, get news, scores, stock prices, weather, etc. via the internet on
    your phone.

    Well, others have piped in on SMS and Voice activated calling. As your
    particular phone has a lot of features, I'd suggest reading the manual you
    downloaded ... Enjoy that new phone .

    It does digit dialing very well, however, it must be expecting a 7 or 10
    digit number. For example, you cannot get the phone to digit dial "611".

    Open the phone and use the up-down button on the left side of the phone. You
    can set it to level-1 and vibrate (low ringer volume) or Level 4 and vibrate
    (high volume). That is all that there is to it.

    I'd try that with my Samsung 660, but I broke it... and it's sitting here
    unactivated while I use my brother-in-law's old piece-of-crap LG 5350 with a
    dying battery... because if I open the 660's flip any more, it's liable to come
    apart.

    I need to get a replacement phone. The 5350 annoys me
