    I need a new phone.... (sprint)

    augest 1st, im eligable for an upgrade.

    im trying to choose between 3 phones for sprint...

    Sanyo 8200

    Treo 650

    Smart Device 6600


    Because i work at Radioshack, i get some type of discount on them(10% i think, maybe more)

    but should i really shell out a couple hundred dollars for a PDA-phone?

    any other suggestions?

    Hey a fellow shacker. Be sure to check out the site fort worth doesn't want you to see :-P www.radioshacksucks.com/phpBB , just dont surf it from work.

    Tell you what, I'd get the Sanyo 7400 if I was going to get the nicest flip (the 8200 is my second choice for a flip, only because it cant record video, and it doesnt have interchangable faceplates).

    If I were getting a PDA phone, I'd get the Treo 650, definately.

    Either way, I think you should check this out before making any decisions: http://www.phonescoop.com/phones/com...7&id%5B%5D=570

    yea, the 7400 is awesome, but if im gonna spend some money id rather get the treo. otherwise i can get a 8200 refurb for close to nothing.

    Treo 650 is one of the coolest devices around! Get it.

    Peace,

    someone told me that sprint and verizon sometimes lock the bluetooth features on the phone so that way instead of transfering data through it, you have to email it over there system.

    Is this true?

    Yes, it all started with a phone called the Motorola V710. Verizon was even sued becuase of it.

    P.S. I don't think that the Treo650's BT is locked. If it is, it is very easy to fix from what I think I've heard.
