Excerpt: I have this phone for about 3 years now, and it still works, it's all beat up but it works, personal experience with almost all sanyo phones ether through work or personal use has made me like them better than anything else on the market with few exceptions, i'm getting the 5600 for my self and i'm...
Excerpt: Let me first say that I have worked in the wireless industry for the past 4 years and that when I first got this phone I worked for PCS. I tried a Samsung first, then an LG, and finally this phone in March 2002.
Excerpt: This phone has caused me nothing but headache from the time I purchased it (5/2002). I have been sent 3 new 5150's from Sprint and each one has had the same problem- I cannot receive or place calls after just a couple weeks of use.
Excerpt: After a year and a half away from Sprint, I decided to give it one more try. I always liked the design of the 5150, but wondered what it's signal would be like. I must say that I am impressed! Whereas a year ago, I could not get a signal in my house, now I can talk for hours!
Excerpt: This phone is too cool!! It is a modification of the 5000, which is awesome!! Full color display, downloadable ringer and screensaver, sleek,and loaded with features. The battery life on it leaves something to be desired, but other than that, it's definately a must buy!!
Excerpt: Am now settling for the Sanyo 4900 untill they fix the 5150 ear volumn. Have owned 3 Sanyos, 3 Samsungs, 1 PrintPCS, mostly in the past 3 months. I am convienced that between the 3 manufactures Sanyo has the best signal strength (4/5 bars) and Samsung the worst (1/2 bars).
Excerpt: I'm currently using new samsung a500 but i think sanyo is better in every way except for it's volume. The volume on the phone is so low, i can't hardly hear it on the highway nor when im asleep. If sanyo had louder volume and ringer, i would definately change it back, no doubt!!
Excerpt: I have had this phonea for about 4 months, and after the first month its performance went down hill. For one thing I will be talking to someone for under 15 min. and it will cut out on me, even the the reception indicator shows that it is a strong signal.
Excerpt: Sanyo 5150 is better than the new 3G phones. The new phones do not have anything differnt except that Sprint is not allowing 5150 to access Data. They turned off 5150's EIN for Data. Sprint is in bed with Samsung for the moment.
