The SAR rating is 1.21. Is this a concern for anyone?

I have a MM7400 Sanyo that rates .95 that is ready to die.
Want a rugged sprint phone with good ratings. Any others recommended?
thanks

call screening????

does that mean i can put my phone in such a state that will only allow certain contacts to reach me? or can i set it to block certain numbers? i want a phone where i can do this and block all incoming calls, but still alert me that they called. i want them to go straight to voicemail, but i still wanna know who called from what number. and i also need to block all calls and only recieve texts sometimes. but i stil need a notification as to who hit me. any body got anything on this?

I wouldn't be caught dead with these phones!!

As a Nextel subscriber I think these phone flat out suck! I'm not talking about the qchat service, that seems to work well...but the construction of the Sanyo PRO 700 is a total pos. It's to light weight, to small, and lacks the appeal of a real Nextel phone.

I hope in the future Sprint rethinks their approach....the obvious goal is to get Nextel subscribers over to the qchat side, how is this little crappy Sanyo going to do that? I'm more impressed with the ic502/902 then these bogus phones. Maybe I'm wrong and ppl will find appeals with them, but I give them a failing grade.

Good review but throwing it in the grass, C'mon Wink

Pictures over QChat

One thing about QChat technology is that you can send pictures over DC, they will be instantaneous.

I like how you can throw that...

LOL I seriously like how you can get a rugged phone now that isn't a complete brick and still performs well. Smile

Way to go Sanyo!

Good Durable phone with good pricing.

I recently got to demo this phone along with ther Pro-200. Pro-700 is of course to replace the 7050. It is much lighter weight with the same battery life. Outside screen you can tell by the pictures is much larger and very easy to read even in direct sunlight due to the High Contrast. Direct Connect is only functional in Rev. A territories and is sub-second speeds. Tested call between iDEN and worked perfect. Pricing on 7050 at current time is $69.99, expect this handset to not cost much more! Drooling

Instinct UI Question

So the "home" screen on the m800 Instinct is just the menu, like the iPhone? So the user CANNOT apply any sort of wall paper, let alone change the color of the UI itself.

I'm really wondering why Sprint was so afraid to include the Samsung TouchWIZ UI that just launched in Korea. Now that would have been really innovative compared to this bug-ridden build from the ground up (WHY??) fisher-price looking user interface.

It is my opinion that they should have let Samsung design the UI themselves, not outsource it to a 3rd party company. BAD idea.

HAHA TAKE THAT STEVE JOBS & ATT WIRELESS

Let me start off by saying I'm proud of Sprint and Samsung for coming up with the Instinct. This phone seems very profitable. Competition is what made America great at one time. IF YOU BUY AN UNLOCKED iPHONE YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO W/E HELL YOU WANT WITH IT AND IT SHOULDN'T BE RELOCKED. OTHERWISE DON'T CHARGE PEOPLE SUCH A HIGH PRICE FOR THESE WORTHLESS SOON TO BE OUTDATED DEVICE.
Before you know it walmart will be peddling Apple's iphone on shelves for $75 due to the fact so many better devices came out because people didn't want to wait for an unlocked iphone or the price to go down and the iphone has become yesterday's news. I hope the Samsung instinct is a big success that allows people way more freedom to tinker with it then Apple doe...

Samsung Soul

Samsung brought the new Soul (U900) to the show and they claim it is a GSM QUAD band (vs the tri band they brought to BWC 200Cool. I am hearing that it will not be available in the U.S. anyway. Has anyone out there herd anything about this phone coming to the U.S. or if it can be purchased as an unlocked QUAD band?

Joby Zivio???

Anyone have any updated info on availability of the Joby Zivio bluetooth headset?

(their website for ref: http://www.joby.com/products/zivio/ )

It seemed to make a splash when announced a few months ago, but I can't find any news of it from CTIA. Zivio was supposed to be available this spring (according to the company), but still nothing but dead air out there in the marketplace and in the media.

Anyone have any current info on the Zivio?
