    The very latest version of Motorola Phone Tools 4.0 has support for the
    RAZR V3m.

    I'm not clear on your post. What may be stolen?

    Re: razor phone cable and software....

    Razr or Sanyo 8400? Which in "your opinion" is the better phone? Given the
    choice between these two phones, which one would you get?

    I doubt that's a determination the RAZR is capable of making.

    The RAZR. I used to be an avid Sanyo loyalist back in the day, but that
    ended around 2004. Nowadays, you couldn't get me to recommend ANYTHING
    Sanyo makes.

    The only thing the 8400 has over the RAZR is ReadyLink, and frankly,
    that's just laughable. Readylink is an utter joke, and I really wish
    Sprint and Sanyo would let it die a quiet death. There is no use in
    continuing to push handsets that use this sub-par and totally
    incompatible PTT system.

    No, the RAZR is better. It's made with more durable materials, the RF
    performance is solid, and the overall design of the phone is simply more
    refined.

    Isaiah,

    Thanks for your assessment of the two phones. What about battery life?
    Sprint does not sell an extended battery for the Razr. Also, it is possible
    to force the Razr to digital roaming mode and have it stay there? In other
    words, after making a call it will stay in digital roaming mode and not
    revert back Sprint if there is a Sprint signal available? The 8400 provides
    this feature.

    Also, what about the speaker phone on the Razr? Is the speaker loud and
    undistorted? I use Telenav on a daily basis and need to be able to hear the
    audible directions.

    Thanks,

    -mij

    I don't know about the 8400, but My experience has been that nearly all
    EVDO phones have a lesser battery life than older-generation models.
    The RAZR's battery life isn't great, but it will get you through the
    day. I tend to be able to stretch battery life at times to two days
    before I need a recharge, if I turn Bluetooth off.

    > Sprint does not sell an extended battery for the Razr.


    Sprint doesn't sell ANY compatible accessories for ANY of it's CDMA
    Motorola handsets, with the exception of Bluetooth (but they can't help
    that).

    Fortunately, an extended battery DOES exist, but Sprint doesn't sell it.
    Do a google search for Motorola part number SNN5788 (just entering the
    part number into Google should give you results). You will also need to
    buy a battery door to accommodate the bigger battery. That is part
    number SHN9444. Both items will set you back about $45-$50 in total.

    Sprint, sadly, couldn't market a phone any worse than they have the
    Motorolas. I don't know what chip on their shoulder the CDMA side of
    Sprint has with Motorola, but even now it seems they are trying hard to
    make Motorola handset sales as unsuccessful as possible.

    On top of this, lots of Sprint fanboys seem content to parrot what they
    hear from Sprint reps about how bad the Motos are without ever having
    actually tried one themselves, and can't even explain WHY they think the
    phones are supposedly bad. Thankfully, Moto handsets are simply too
    popular at present to allow that, and their build quality has improved
    significantly, starting with the RAZR introduction on GSM networks.

    Yes it is. Under the Settings menu, in a section called "Roaming."
    It's the same options nearly all phones have: Sprint-Only, Automatic,
    Roam-Only.

    I thought virtually all Sprint phones had this capability.

    The speakerphone on mine has been great so far.

    Just to add to this, I discovered another little accessory last night:

    http://www.mobilewhack.com/reviews/m...ble_power.html

    Basically, a portable battery charger. When you have access to a wall
    or car charger, you can charge both this unit and your phone at the same
    time. Then carry/store the portable charger, and you can use it as
    needed to charge a RAZR or other handset that has uses Mini-USB for
    charging. The P790 is also supposed to work with current-model
    Blackberries as well.

    A nice alternative for those who don't want to ruin the sleek lines of
    the RAZR with an extended battery and appropriately-bulging battery door
    to accommodate it. And this IS a Motorola OEM product, so you will not
    get the "cannot charge" error from this.

    If the RAZR is like the PEBL, probably just iTAP. I've used both and
    don't consider one to be significantly better than the other.
