Summary: I bought the BlackBerry Curve 8300 a year ago and was immediately impressed with the number of features available on this phone. My only complaint is that the scroll ball would stick and the screen would stick, maybe do to the software after 10 months, i really don't know why. Overall, I'd recommend the phone.
Summary: Great phone. I replaced all of my kids broken phones with the same as mine, because we can share a box of batteries and I didn't have to renew my contract. I have a cable from RadioShack and bitpim to download picturers, history and phone book, but I had to have Sprint upload my address book.
Excerpt: I got this phone back in 2005 as a primary phone for myself. I retired it for a few years and resurrected it in 2008 when my teenager LOST his newer SPRINT phone. This phone still has excellent voice quality and you can text. He's not a big phone user, so it's great. I'm impressed that it still works well. Thanks SANYO for making a solid product.
Pros: It's 2009, still functions like new after four years, Voice Dialing, Sound quality on calls
Cons: It's 2009, can't compare features with those of today's phone
Excerpt: I got this phone about two years ago and back then this phone was amazing. The camera has really good quality signal strength and reception. The complaint about the speakerphone function is that some callers complained they couldn't hear me. I loved the red phone look also. This has removable piece to the outside so you can swap it out. All in all this is great blast from the fairly recent past(however in tech years this is old).
Pros: Great calls, Cool color options, Good flash/camera light
Cons: Poor speakerphone, Can only record 30 second clips at the most, No memory slot
Summary: This is a great phone with an easy menu system and good features. Be prepared to buy a cable for $20 to up/download photos, ringtones, contacts, etc. if you don't want to subscribe to Sprint data services. Use free BitPim to handle data transfers across the cable or buy a possibly more capable program (BitPim has its limitations). The camera is easy to use, but so far I haven't been able to find a player for the videos I've downloaded from the phone.
