It sounds like this phone gets better reception and better audio quality and louder speaker than its predecessors. I know the first few Kyocera Sprint DC phones didn't have the greatest voice quality.

Looks like this would be a decent replacement. Especially now that the iDEN network is doomed come 2013 Sad Nice review by the way!

Agreed, it is a good review and it sounds like Sprint & Kyocera are trying to correct the shortcomings/defects of the original models intended to replace the Motorola Nextel phones.

I too have noticed that my Nextel's performance has improved in the last three months; I live in the Southeastern portion of the USA.

How's it going, by the way?


Things are fine, thanks for asking. You?

I recall you work for a large company that ran on Nextel (or at least used to). What's their plan going forward after iDEN shuts down next summer?
