Video Killed the Radio Star...

and Kyocera killed Sanyo..

This is quite the sore point with me as Sanyo wireless phones were an industry standard benchmark for Sprint with leading edge technology for its day,

The early Sanyos and both the candy bar style and their flip phones were top notch,

The LAST GOOD Sanyo was the SCP-8400

Then Sanyo sold off their wireless phone division and NAME to Kyrocera (as it was less the one half of one percent of their market and they wanted to focus on other consumer tech)to up until this point made gas station and discount store prepaid phones.

Kyrocera are responsible for the flimsy line of Katanas (the original Katana SCP 6600 and the Katana DLX (SCP 8500) were alright, the Kyrocero ZIO and that flea market generic Nintendo DS dual screen ummm ECHO,

Their phones have issues that I thought that we have evolved and developed past like "sparking", overheating (for a feature phone), unwarranted operations, freezing up, and general failures.

I cannot wait for Motorola to re tool their lines from producing iDen phones and start pushing out some rugged feature phones for Sprint. So I can STOP having to spend "quality time" with my father in law taking hime to the repair center for stuff the just should not be happening on his supposed "rugged" feature phone
