    I was just wondering -- with the Sanyo 4900 and Samsung A500 now being
    discontinued -- how many of you users still use older, discontinued
    phones? How long have you had your phone... does it still perform well?
    How long will a manufactorer support a discontinued model?

    I have the Sanyo 4900, which I believe to be a great phone and I am sad
    to see it being discontinued.

    Amazing that I'm agreeing with Phillippe on anything here ... but I have the
    same scenerio, with my wife using a 2 to 2.5 yr. old 4700. Great phone, and
    as long as it keeps charging up, is the perfect phone for her, as she
    doesn't use the web, and barely uses the phone to begin with.

    We use the 4700 & 4900--both seem to work better in fringe areas--have
    also used the 5300, good phone but not in fringes, but does have tri
    mode--maybe the next big improvement will be a 4900 type with tri mode

    Still using a LG 5250 phone. Performs well and too cheap to get a new
    phone.

    I was really surprised how well Sanyo phones work on the Sprint network.
    But I can't give up my SCP-4000. Sanyo's phones made since are just
    too clunky.

    If I ever need to roam on 800 Mhz digital, though, I'll be SOL. But
    never have. Sprint's preferred roaming partner is AT&T here anyway.

    We replaced a broken Kyocera 2255 with a refurbished Kyocera 2255. The phone
    had not been officially sold by Sprint for several months prior, IIRC.

    The replacement's screen is dying, but it only cost $30 to buy the phone, so
    we are going to write it off and buy a new phone soon.

    To answer the other part of the question - it seems that generally,
    manufacturers offer at least rudimentary support for the phones long after
    the carriers stop selling them.

    I still have a Sanyo 4900. It has better reception than any phone
    Sprint sells currently.

    I did have to sell my 2G phones though, as they have screwed up my
    account in the past (going from 2G to 3G and back).

    So many people have and love the 4900 that I'm sure they'll be
    issuing software upgrades for it and servicing it for a long while.

    When my wife and I got 4900's I gave my 4700 to my friend, and my
    wife's 4000 to his wife. She doesn't use the phone much, so despite the
    fact that it's 2G voice, it was sufficient. Recently the battery has been
    taking a charge less efficiently, so I suppose my friend will give her the
    4700 and get himself a new phone.

    But the point is that both phones are still being used, and I'll
    stand by the 4700 completely. It's 3G voice and a terrific phone all
    around. Since I don't use Vision, and don't know anyone who does, we're all
    extremely satisfied with our instruments and have no reason to upgrade.

    I had a Nokia 6185 forever. It was one of the good releases and was
    a fantastic phone for its entire life. We have a very skilled SPCS store
    near here that was always prepared to upgrade it (some stores would look at
    it a year after it was discontinued as if it were some other sort of
    appliance). So I was able to keep that thing in top shape until I sold it.
    It's probably still being used somewhere.

    I have a 5150 and its been going strong since the day I bougt it.

    And I don't think I'll be upgrading it anytime soon since I'm boycotting
    camera phones and I can't afford a new one.

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

    I've had my StarTac 7867W for 3 years. It's been beat up and is still
    going strong. Its only 2G, but it gets me Internet access for my
    laptop. If it dies, and Sprint PCS doesn't offer any Motorola phones,
    and still insists that 3G phones can't be hooked to laptops, I'll
    either try to find a used 7867W and continue on with 2G, or head over
    to Verizon...

    Would you believe I am still using not 1, not 2, but 3 Samsung 3500 phones
    on my account!
    Yes, those same 3500's that everybody trash-talks...
    To be honest, the history is as follows:

    #1: Replaced twice in first 6 mo. no problems since
    #2. Replaceed once " " " " " " "
    #3. " " within the last year with a friends 3500. The
    3500 was replaced after it had taked a 'quick bath' in the Atlantic, and
    even survived that finally to have the earpiece die.

    All of the 3500's have 'taken a liken and kept on ticken'. They have bounced
    down carpeted stairs and spun accross the tile floor. They have tumbled end
    over end.!

    We really got our money out of these!

    I still use my NP 1000, I have 2 backups, and my wife is still
    using her Eagle 22 (Touchpoint 2200). My wife's startacky is still in
    the drawer, so she could still use it for emergency backup, but it is
    there because she wanted a better phone.
