    I'm considering switching from the the Samsung A400 to the Sanyo
    8100, and I'm wondering what sort of signal reception improvement I can
    expect? More specifically, I'm wondering whether or not the improvement
    in reception noticeably improves signal strength in buildings. Thanks
    for any help!

    Re: A400 vs. 8100

    I say samnsung is not a very durable brand. i've had 3 A460 models in 1
    year...when they function they're fine. however i question their durability
    w/normal use. Sprint's replaced my A460's but I've had to raise hell and went
    2-3 days w/no phone each time.

    I can't bash the durability of the 460. Mine went through the dryer by
    accident. Very dinged up, but functionable still. May not have the
    best reception and drop some calls, but very durable I will say.

    I used the A400 all over the place. Bay area of California, Iowa, (Downtown
    Minneapolis -- in buildings) Minnesota, North Shore of Lake Superior
    (roaming). It worked everywhere and I never had the software updated on
    that phone. I suspect that A460 software was a little more flaky. It was
    Samsungs first phone with 3G voice, so that may explain it. Still, the
    Sanyo 8100 is a much cooler phone, so ...

    Went through the dryer? So, did it go through the washer? It must have
    been wet, don't?

    Nope it did not go through the washer. I had just shoveled snow and it
    was in the sweat pants pocket. It was dry the jacket was over it, but
    the bottoms of the pants were wet.

    I have has both an A400, A500 and now I have a 8100. The 8100 does get a
    better signal than both of the samsungs I had. I have a friend that has
    an A500 on my account and we were driving back from the Sand Dunes, and
    my phone got a sprint signal 2 or 3 miles before his did. I even
    browesed the web in that time. He even turned his phone on and off and
    still didn't get the sprint signal. I was impressed. So Go for it!!!!
    Also get the softwareupdate for the 8100. I did, and it was almost like
    I upgraded to a different phone! It improoved the ringer volume, and
    added an area code option that shows the state of the person that is
    calling that isn't in your phone book. It made me even happier with the
    phone
