    Well, we ended up going with the Sanyo Vero for 2 of the 4 phones, leaving the other 2 alone for now. The Duramax is too chunky for a "mom phone". So far, Mom's very impressed with the upgrade from...

    Thanks! I'm a little worried about all the 1-star reviews on Sprint's website but if people here like the Duramax that counts more.
  3. Is there decent Sprint dumbphone to replace my Nextels?

    I have three Nextel phones that I'd like to switch over to Sprint phones but I'm concerned that anything I get will be inferior to my i870's and i580. All I want is decent voice and speakerphone...

    Cheapest smartphone plan for 3 phones?

    Right now I have 3 Nextel phones on the 700 minute family plan. It looks like the cheapest smartphone plan is the Everything Data Family 1500 for $150/mo plus fees (quoted for the iPhone), which is...

    I'm really torn. I want the TP2 hardware but Android software. Oh well, it gives me an excuse to do nothing and not spend money.

    This looks exactly like what I want, similar to a Touch Pro 2 but with a vastly superior OS and more solid build quality. Sprint really, really needs to get these.

    I want a keyboard too. Google should sponsor a crew to port Android to the Touch Pro. Yes, I know there's a guy working on porting Android to the HTC Touch but he could use some full-time help. If...

    From a software development standpoint, Android is awesome. Linux OS, Java apps, great free development tools and libraries. Sprint should have one Android phone out now for early adopters. A HTC...

    Given that the Airave cuts the required power output of your cell phone substantially, if anything it'll decrease your theoretical risks.

    Since Android is a Linux distribution I'm very comfortable with the OS. Apps are written in Java, which is pretty solid at this point. Google is taking their time to get it right, to Sprint's...

    You could try the mini version of the DD-WRT Linux firmware for your WRT54G v5, or you might use this as an excuse to upgrade to a shiny new WRT310N and upgrade it with DD-WRT. No guarantees, you...

    Cool, now I have to decide whether to buy the Treo or hold out for the HTC Raphael. Or buy the Treo now and replace a second Nextel phone later? :D Thanks!

    Ah, found the thread: OFFICIAL:...

    You can? The "Lead Retail Consultant" at the Sprint store I visited said you can't share minutes and that I'd need both a Sprint and Nextel plan on my account to use both types of phones.

    Coverage is no problem... how well I'm unsure of (Ann Arbor, home of the University of Michigan). I want the 800W, don't think GPS on my i870 would be nearly as usable and if I have to pay for a...
  15. Switching from Nextel to Sprint: sanity check needed

    I have 3 Nextel phones, two i870's and one i580, on a Nextel shared plan. I want to replace one i870 with a Treo 800W (GPS navigation looks fun)... which won't work on the Nextel plan in the...
  16. Microsoft Mogul developer discount, anyone can use?

    $299 Mogul plus 10% service discount on new lines

    From today's Microsoft TechNet email newsletter. I want to upgrade from a Nextel phone family plan so I don't think I can use this but maybe some...

    The PPC6800 Mogul came out today too but it doesn't do DC. It does pretty much everything else though. Tempting. If there's going to be another PDA phone like this but with DC then I'll wait.
  18. The Sprint website looks like it'll let me...

    The Sprint website looks like it'll let me upgrade my i870 (one of three Nextel's on my family plan) to a Sprint PPC6800 (Mogul) PDA, so I guess mixing Sprint/Nextel on one plan really does work now?...

    What about the Plantronics MX200S series? Works with my i870, did they change the interface with the i880? The Motorola earbuds kept falling out of my ears. These stay put.

    Last I knew Comcast workers here in Michigan were using Nextel phones too, including DC.

    FWIW, Comcast seems to have become significantly more clueful in the past few years. They opened up a big...

    When my phone does that it's because it's locking on to a distant tower instead of one of the nearer ones. See if anything from this thread helps:

    I don't need a stronger signal, I just need to keep the phone from locking onto that one troublesome tower. A decent directional antenna pointed at one of the good towers should work, in theory? ...
