    Hi all,

    I was just wondering what is the best phone out for sprint
    I'm mostly interested in obtaining and holding a signal in
    fringe areas & an external speaker.

    Many feel that Sprint has never offered better phones for your
    needs than the Sanyo line. I have been using Sanyo phones for the past
    six years and can attest that their ability to grab and hold a signal
    is truly excellent.

    Friends have told me that the Samsung phones, which once
    suffered from a poor reputation for quality and performance, have
    improved in their recent models to the extent that they rival the
    Sanyos. Someone who has used both extensively would have to comment on
    that. I've never tried one.

    An external speaker?

    Hi,

    I've always had a Samsung phone since I signed up with Sprint eight
    years ago, so I can't speak for Sanyo. During the early years the
    reception on my old phones could have been better, but I was okay with
    it being a new user. In recent years I have discovered that the
    reception has improved drastically; I can't remember the last time I
    had a dropped call. I believe this is attributed to newer cell phones
    and improved technology.

    The Samsung VI660 I've been using for the past three years has been
    receiving no less than four bars whenever I'm in Sprint nertwork. The
    replacement phone, Samsung M610, is working just as well so far.

    One should never look at the number of "bars" as any indication of
    signal strength. They're put there by the manufacturer of the phone.
    One manufacturer might decide that a weak signal deserves one bar,
    while the next thinks two would be more appropriate. Etc., etc. Not
    only is there no standard between manufacturers, there's not even a
    standard between phones from the *same* manufacturer.

    Don't you work for Cingular, though, Notan?

    In agreement with most of the above posters, Sanyo will generally have
    better signal reception than other manufacturers, and they generally
    have a better external speakerphone as well. The only Sanyo I would
    avoid because of the poor speakerphone is the Katana/6600. Most others
    are fine. Also try to get something with an external. This slight
    difference could give you that slight extra boost you need.

    Another suggestion is to (if you're already on Sprint), switch to a
    plan with no roaming charges. If you are a new customer, this will
    likely be included in your new plan. This enables you to use non-Sprint
    towers to make calls in areas Sprint doesn't cover, without having to
    pay any additional charges.
