computer hookup

I'm wondering what would be involved in using my Sanyo 4900 to hook up to my Mac Powerbook for cellular surfing. Is anyone familiar with this? Is my phone even capable / compatible? How does one learn what phones are good for this and which ones aren't? The local Mac guy here says that Sprint does do this, but doesn't know much more. Any ideas / helpful hints?

New phone activation

I got a used Sanyo 8100 to replace my current phone, and I want to activate it.

I thought I had activated my current phone online when I got it, but I am not seeing a link for that anywhere.

Has that capability been removed from the Sprint website?

Thanks for the help.

If I wanted to upgrade to new equipment as a existing customer is there any sort of processing fees involved or upgrade fees? Any feedback would be great. Thanks

RL-7300 vs VM-4500 battery life, etc.

I'm new to the site--lots of good info. I'm contemplating a replacement for my Sanyo 4900, and have been very happy with Sanyo's quality--the 4900 is my third Sanyo. I'd love the VM-4500, but it's a bit rich for my budget. I'd rather have the camera than the Ready-Link (since I have no one to play with on Ready-Link), but the RL-7300 seems a more attractive phone to me than the RL-2500 (and seems better reviewed). But why is the battery life so short on the RL-7300?

Any recommendations? Thanks!

Like Sprint, but considering T-Mobile's GSM Int'l. phones

Greetings gang!

I've been with Sprint for about 4 years, and have no complaints with the service that I have received during that time. I'm still using my original Qualcomm 2700, but am going to upgrade to something else real soon.

Over the past 2 years I have been making trips to Europe (mostly Russia) about once or twice per year. It would be very convenient if I could use my cell phone while in Europe. However, apparently Sprint doesn't offer any phones that are GSM (SIM card) compatible (or do they?). The ability to just pop-in a SIM card from whatever country I'm visiting sure seems appealing.

After researching other cell companies, the logical choice from what I've read points to T-Mobile. They supposedly have great service on...

Has anybody had any problems with the text messaging. My wife and I have the Sanyo 4500 and sometimes it works great and sometimes it doesn't. I live in California and get great service just SMS is spotty right now.

Does anyone know what the changes to new plans will be in April?

I am thinking about signing up, but interested if anyone here has the scoop on what the new plans will be in April? If I am concerned about this should I just sign up right at the end of March and if a better deal comes out bring the phone back and ask for it?

Anyone know if Sprint will bring back Kyocera phones? I really much prefer their phonebook and UI to Samsung and Nokia's.
