    I know it's dated, but CostCo is selling it REAL cheap ($68). Did
    Sprint ever fix the bugs I read about when it first came out? Just
    wondering. I need a quick, inexpensive replacement phone.

    It is a great, cheap phone. For that price it is a steal. It is 20x
    the phone of the $100 Nokia phone sold elsewhere.

    I would have to disagree with Brandt-My 460 got terrible reception. I
    now have a refurbished Sanyo 4700 that gets much better reception and
    have reduced drop calls by about 75%.

    what???!!!!!!! I do like Samsung phones and I have seen much worse
    phones, but I do not believe that it is 20x the phone of the Nokia.
    These are two totally different phones, plus some people love the
    simplicity that Nokia provides them with. The A460 @ that price is a
    steal for sure though

    If you get one of the first productiopn batch they are OK (by that I
    mean no more failures thatn any other phone). Get one in any other
    production batch ten you will experience the unadulterated JOY of
    watching your Big internal screen die completely. This is a known issue
    and happens frequently. It is the one reason I stay away from the A460.

    I can second this assessment. My wife is using the A-460 and absolutely
    loves the phone. It works great for her (only one drop and it was a tower
    issue and not a phone issue, it has since been fixed). The sound quality on
    calls made from her phone has been very good. We have noticed no bugs or
    reception problems with this phone.

    I know a few people using that phone and not one has complained about screen
    trouble, reception trouble or dropped calls.

    The screen issue (exactly as described) manifested itself on one of our
    three 460's (purchased different dates).... Sprint replaced it about 30 days
    ago without any issue. Otherwise, no complaints. BTW the defective phone
    was purchased about a year ago and just went bad last month.

    Your phones are first production batch. They should be OK. Anything
    made in 2003 will exibit the LCD failures being statistically higher.

    We bought my Wife's in March 2003, it could very well be 2003 production.
    So far no trouble at all (it is so rarely ever turned off ... it is charged
    a couple of times per week).

    If you buy at costco it comes with lifetime guarantee. If anything
    happens you get your money back.
