That article wasn't that impressive. Just reading through it once I noticed two important flaws in the author's description of the phone. First of all the author mentioned that the phone could only be turned up or down with the arrow keys on the side of the phone, this is not true. Secondly and most importantly, the author mentioned that the phone could not be synced with a PC, that is funny because the phone actually comes with a PC Sync cable.
Ironically the author had a column about the sound of the phone, but never mentioned the quality. The sound quality of the phone is excellent! If the author thinks it gets distorted on the highest volume, he/she has a defective device, or a poor ringtone file. There are also other things that ...

Okay, well I appologize to the author for the critisism. On the flip side of my opinions expressed in my first entry, the article had a lot of correct information. It only bothered me that the article had incorrect facts about the device on such a popular website.

Hey, we all make mistakes from time to time. Even Rich trips up here and there...but he always 'fesses up to it and makes it good. Give Eric a chance.

i did not mention the sound quality of calls separate from the sound of the ringers because i found no difference between them. i still believe that even during the calls, the sanyo lacked an appropriate "loud but not deafening" volume and that effect conversations as well as notifications.

as for pc sync. the mm5600 does come with a usb cable in the box, but all it can be used for natively is transferring files to and from the phone. the 5600 does not come with any pc sync software(or at least our review unit did not). sync software can be purchased from a third party, however. and we will be covering that in our next feature article. if your 5600 came with pc-installable sync software, please let us all know. i think everyone would be h...

The phone has PC sync software stored in the phone's memory and it is installed during the connection of the sync cable to the computer. I only mentioned this as a correction because this is considered a PC sync device. Sure it can't be synced to do as much as a smart device can but it certainly can be synced for a lot of reasons. For my next bit, this could be a misunderstanding between you and I; however, if you were referring to the ringer sound quality and did not find a difference between the sound quality of the 5600 ringer in conjuncture to any other cell phone ringer you should try it out one more time. The new Sanyo multimedia devices have an incredible sound output for a cell phone. I also never disagreed with your statement t...

glad you liked the article overall nickatomic. i believe we have a misunderstanding in the term "pc sync" the settings and software i could find for the phone allowed the exchange of pictures, movies, and other files over the usb cable, but not the synchronization of contacts, calendar entries, etc with desktop PIMs. this exchange of PIM information is commonly what's called sync(synchronization) and is what, i believe, the mm5600 lacks. it does however, as i stated, allow you to transfer files. again, if there is software to sync PIM data in your package and it was not in mine, i apologize.

Excellent, I think that we are on the same page with most of the issues that we have discussed. If we disagree on something as mondane as the term "PC sync" I feel that we are pretty close to agreement with this device in many ways.
