Rolling Eyes I have no idea and my contact couldn't get any staight info from her bosses as well. The Moto rep was there Monday and that was all that could be found out.

The Samsung rep was there yesterday and Cingular is getting a new Sam soon that will have a camera function as well. The number I got was P-107 but I cannot find it any where so I am checking tom for the proper number.

The v400 is a reality, I am currently in a contest to when one after Christmas. The samsung p107, can be found on samsung's global website as the p100, with the swivel camera in the middle. the launch date is sometime 1Q 04

Laughing Good luck.
I saw the p100 but not the other earlier by using the phonescoop link.
What is your opinion of the p107?
Can you send me some specs on the v400? also what part of town are you in? I am in Florida.
Later

I'm in Greensboro, NC. I've got all the specs on it. it will be quad band. ask me what you want to know.

Rolling Eyes Ok so you guys will get it first.
How is the v400 different from the v300,500 and 600? also do you have a price on it as yet?
...

The v400 is closer to the v500 than the v300. there are major differences between the the v300 and the v400. the v300 it not quad band. the exterior look is different. the v600 has metal housing like the v60, the v400 does not. the v600 has bluetooth, the v400 doesn't. I haven't found the differences in the v400 & v500 yet, the only thing i can think of is like samsung, (x426 and x427) and motorola, (c331g, c332g, and c333g) are just making model #s for specific carriers. The price will be 299.99 to buy without contract. 149.99 after $50 mir on 2yr contract.

Rolling Eyes Hi Bigbmc
Thanks again, so i take it that the v400 has VGA camera,picture ID and speaker phone.
The v600 is a bad looking phone so this one must be pretty cool as well.
When is it going to be in your stores?
...
Bigbmc26

Nov 20, 2003, 8:07 PM
it is VGA (640x480), pic id, and speaker phone. the v400, we should have before january. we haven't gotten a set date on it yet. the v600 in still in testing, so it could be march 04.

My rep in Arky said the 400 will be out in weeks and the 600 in Feb.

DO I have that Samsung model right-P 107? I know the Sam rep was at the Arky HQ's this week.

I was told by the Moto rep that the only diff of the 400 vs the 600 was as you stated--Blue, metal casing and more $$.

Just got an e-mail from Arky and it was the 107 though they cannot find any info on it either. Should have something later!!

SmileHello Marinedad,
I just calld Motorola re the bluetooth.
It is a wireless technology which allows you to answer the phone via an headset.
Thanks again and keep me posted.

Cool I know and it's more than that! With the future merger of Cingular with either AT&T or T-Mobile- we will have too many phone options to discuss in the future!! lol Can't wait!!!
...
DMARTIN

Nov 22, 2003, 7:29 AM
Smile I saw that, the merger will be good for consumers but bad for employees of both companies
because it will mean more lay offs.
They might as well just ask us what we want? and give it to us. Very Happy

Ask us? It took 6 weeks to find out that we only use 850 here and I found that out while at MCAS Miramar (San Diego) when my son returned from deployment. Many employees were not educated in the GSM field enough to talk about it but it has vastly improved.

Now we'll get the 1900 and I just sold the phones that I got in Hong Kong!! Figures!! Embarassed Crying or Very sad Laughing

Rolling Eyes Hi
Are you an agent or something?
Please advise.

Marinedad

Nov 22, 2003, 9:49 AM
No. With the family etc I have many phones etc. I went to HK to re-supply my son's Air wing on the Carrier (Vinson) in August.

I was told by Cingular that I could use a world phone here like the Nokia 6100 and others. So I got a few and they were all 900/1800/1900 and I had to sell them all.

Bad info from under educated reps. In time I got to know a rep that is high up in the main office so that's how I know what's coming out and when. Usually a month or more from most offices also. No big deal but I am waiting for that perfect phone so I can rid my old TDMA.

My son also got the same phones and in Ca they use the 1900 so he really rubbed it in using the diff phones that I sold! Rolling Eyes

Cool I understand but i don't know if we can blame the reps.,i question the training they get.
It's amazing how much more we know about the phones and there features than these people who are selling them.
As far as the perfect phone, depending on what you are looking for,i think the v400 is going to be the one, especially if it comes with the TFT LCD screen.
...
Marinedad

Nov 22, 2003, 11:21 AM
Agreed! I do not blame the reps but when they try to tell me something and they talk nonsense then that is a different matter. I respect someone who says they do not know rather then make something up but I know with my conversations at the Arky Office-things improved dramatically. It's for the good of everyone that is the end result! Wink

Cool The T725 is not a bad choice either but that is going to AT&T but this v phone tops it.
Let me know as soon as it's available.
Talk to you later.

I am a rep, and I learned all i know on my own. Cingular, as well as other companies really only train you on selling and procedures. info on technology and phones is really left up to the individual. i know so much because i like my job. others i work with though, are here for a paycheck and could care less about the info the give to customers. But, i guess that's why i sell more than they do! Laughing

Pride in one's work shows much to others! I found the best way to educate those in your field was to show them this website. They were amazed. I found it by checking this and that and was kind of surprised that others didn't. They do do now!

Very Happy Hi Bigbmc
I see the v400 is on display now but i have a question,does it have an outer display?
I love this phone already.

Thank you.

Smile Hi Bigbmc
I have a question for you, i noticed that the weight of the v400 is almost an ounce heavier than the v600 and i belive you mentioned that the casing was plastic so why is that?
The Motorola rep. said it was due to the camera but that does not make sense.
Also when do you think it will be hitting the stores?
Thanks
