Online review says reception is bad

The review of the Eclipse on info sync world says the reception is bad...they say they couldn't get a signal where other Sprint phones had a bar or two.

Can anyone who owns this phone comment on the truth to this?

anyone know if Sprint will offer this phone in black soon? If not, I'll just go ahead and get the silver one....

Katana X

The Katana Eclipse X will be released soon in black and pink. It will have the one click interface that the Rant has.

Anyone know when this might be out?

Sub $10 Katana Hard Rubber Covers on Ebay Worth It?

I just ordered a Katana Eclipse and noticed there are a lot of people on Ebay selling a 2 piece cover that is made of a hard plastic/rubber substance for any where from $7 to $10 bucks.

Anybody using these covers?
Do they snap on or slip over?
Do they fit well and still allow the phone to close?

Why all the raving about call quality??

In all the reviews I see for this phone everyone keeps raving about how great the call quality is.

I have a Sanyo 8400 and calls are pretty much always clear with no static or anything - would I notice an improvement going to the Eclipse?

Can any owners comment on this? Is there really something extra special and noticeably great about the call quality of the Eclipse? Is it just super clear?

The reason I ask is because call quality is a very important factor for me.

over in the "Video Tour: Sanyo Katana Eclipse" discussion:

No QVGA: ugh (why not?)

Why do these two latest Sanyo Katana's (LX, Eclipse) take the HUGE step backwards in not offering a QVGA main display ? Makes websurfing and pics viewing much worse. Bad move...
