    Come on, Tom. Don't get on the pissing wagon.

    We know no one "produces" phones. Scott used that term
    to mean "manufacture," so, rather than correcting him
    and possibly starting another argument, I also used
    "produce."

    My implication was that Sprint uses phones manufactured
    by other companies... They don't do any manufacturing,
    themselves.

    Re: Flip phones vs. Candy Bar Phones

    My last two phones have been flip phones, but I'm still not convinced
    they're better.

    The most annoying thing to me is that flip phones creak when they're next to
    your ear. I've got an LG 5350, and the last one was a Motorola Startac.
    It's not awful, but it's enough to be annoying.

    In theory, if I had a choice between two phones with exactly the same
    features, I'd buy the candy bar. In practice, I just buy the phone with the
    best feature set (reception/voice quality/software/etc) ignoring whether
    it's flip or not. Lately, it's been flip phones.

    And for the sake of this thread it is irrelevant and should not have even
    been mentioned in the first place. It was clear he was talking about phones
    available for Sprint.

    Frequently, threads go off on tangents that have nothing to do
    with the original topic. Sometimes it's of value, sometimes not.

    If you want to makeing e that no one goes off-topic, complain
    to the moderator.

    That was "... want to make sure..."

    The fingers aren't working, quite yet.

    The off topic was an intent [by Scott] to nitpick the poster [Brandt] for
    saying "produced". It is the same thing as picking on somebody because they
    mi*****ed a word. It sounds to me like somebody was feeling ornry when they
    picked on him for saying "produced" and all the other ogres came out of
    their caves.

    I prefer the flip and the clamshell phones.
    It's nice to not having to "lock" the keys as one must do
    with a candybar-type phone.
    When open and being used, they "feel" better in my hand; I
    don't like to hold a phone by my fingertips. ---John
