    Why doesn't Sprint offer more Motorola Phones? From an RF performance
    perspective, these phones cannot be beat.

    They might be in the future. In saying that Motorola burned SPCS back a few
    years ago, when their phones, installed with Motorola CDMA chips, kept
    crapping out. Cost SPCS a ton of loot on phone returns.

    Motorola phones are not very rugged. My son and daughter
    are constantly breaking theirs.

    Verizon must have incurred the same problem since they have been selling
    Motorola phones for many years.

    Motorola has absolute crap for phones.

    Yes, RF performance is stellar, but the fit and finish stinks, and they have
    software problems. Verizon had major issues with the T720 and T-Mo had
    issues with the V180.

    And when you pay a premium for the phone (Motorola phones are expensive),
    that's not acceptable.

    Over all I think they have poor quality. I am not impressed with nokia
    either.

    Too bad...they used to be rugged. Plus, I really liked the bottom
    connector on the StarTac, with power, data, antenna, audio all though
    one connector.

    In my opinion, the Mororola V60i was one of the most reliable and rugged
    phones ever produced. It did not have a lot of features, but the RF
    performance was exceptional and it was extremely rugged.

    The old Sprint StarTac 7867 was the worst phone ever put out by Sprint
    (with the possible exception of the Samsung N400).

    They USED to stink, but ever since they've moved their newer models to
    the FLEX/FLASH software platform (same software used in the RAZR and
    V5xx models), the situation has improved. I'm using a Motorola e815
    now, and wouldn't trade it for anything else (at least not until the
    CDMA RAZR comes out).

    Motorola DID use their own CDMA chipsets back in the day, but it appears
    that starting with EVDO, Motorola went to using Qualcomm's MSM6550, and
    thus using the same line of chips that everyone else is.

    I had a StarTac ST7867W from 1999 to early 2005, and I found it to be
    a quite good phone. I was traveling more back then, often in fringe
    areas. I routinely picked up signal and was able to make/receive
    calls where other Sprint users couldn't. Because of the nature of
    the work I was doing, that phone got beat up and dropped often, and I
    never had one problem with it (I bought it used through Ebay). The
    case cracked a little bit, but surprisinly, regular crazy clue adhered
    to it, so I patched it up. I also snapped a couple of antennas. The
    voice quality (both recieving/sending) was superior to any of the
    Sanyo's I've looked at (including the MM7400 I have now and the Sanyo
    I had previous to the StarTac).

    I may have posted this before, but while speaking with Verizon tech
    support regarding my sister's account (who still has a ST7867W), the
    CS rep told me that Verizion's progress with E911 is not as fast as
    anticipated, because many StarTac and Timeport users very much like
    their phones and don't want to upgrade.

    Re: Sprint and Motorola Phones

    My experience is that the user interface is poor. I was constantly
    referring to the manual to do simple things, like add a phone book
    entry. And while the RAZR menu system seems to be improved, users
    complain that searching the phonebook is slow. I played with one in a
    Cingular store last week, and still think the menu system is cumbersome
    compared to others, particularly LG. I had a Verizon LG phone several
    years ago, and the menu system was very easy to learn and use. It was a
    good thing, too, because the User Manual was terrible.

    Re: Sprint and Motorola Phones

    Trust me I have documented info directly from Sprint that states that
    the Motorola Star Tac was their worst performing phone ever. This is a
    fact people.

    The user interface was very poor. I never could get used to it.

    While I thought the menus were some of the worst ever invented,
    personally, I don't equate this with "worst performing."

    As a matter of fact, performance was rather good.
