Excerpt: Standby time in local area with no added features and not in update mode: less than 30 hours (and this is the second phone with this issue). Also, instructions do not match phone and do not match web. Example, phone claims to have voice activation. It does not - discontinued three months ago but not advertised by Sanyo. Claims to have internal update to software via menu. Does not - also a discontinued / not advertised feature.
Cons: Cheaper phones work better., Terrible standby battery life., Equally pathetic talk time. Neither "as advertised"., NO INTERNATIONAL (120/240) adapter!
