insanity

Who in their right mind would put a very sensitive button on top of a phone that disconnects a call or calls someone out of the blue

No music playback....

I was seriously considering ditching my Blackberry for this phone until I read that you cannot play music on it. There is no music player and no file management feature to find/use .mp3(or the like)....
With that massive external speaker setup that should have been a priority element.

DuraXT Reception?

I have used an i580 since it was introduced (actually I've had 3 in a row after the previous one died) because it was the Nextel phone with the best reception. But the Nextel antenna nearest my house has been decommissioned.

I'm going to have to switch from Nextel to Sprint and am considering the DuraXT. I'm on the fringe of the nearest Sprint antenna. In the past, the Sprint phones which I have tried at my house have not gotten good reception.

How does the DuraXT reception compare to the i580 reception?

How does the DuraXT reception compare to other Sprint phones reception?

Thanks,
Sandy

Finally a match for the old Moto iDEN phones?

It sounds like this phone gets better reception and better audio quality and louder speaker than its predecessors. I know the first few Kyocera Sprint DC phones didn't have the greatest voice quality. Glad to see Sprint is upping their game for those die-hard iDEN users who won't give up their old Motorola bricks. I know I had a hard time giving up my i530! Looks like this would be a decent replacement. Especially now that the iDEN network is doomed come 2013 Sad Nice review by the way!

Doesn't look all that rugged.

For a phone that can resist being thrown in water, and "blowing rain" this device sure seems to have alot of holes in it's body. I would be interested to hear from an owner of this device, just how rugged / water resistant is it ?

Phone with no network

Didn't I recently read that Sprint is shutting down their iDEN network? Why would they offer a phone for a network that will be gone soon?

Can we expect a review

Since this is a replacement / improvement to the Duramax, can we expect to see a review of this in the future to see if the complaints of the previous generation phone have been addressed? Primarily voice quality and voice volume were issues with the Duramax. Would like to see if these are finally coming up to part with the Motorola iDEN phones and older Sanyo phones in terms of voice and call quality.

Video Killed the Radio Star...

and Kyocera killed Sanyo..

This is quite the sore point with me as Sanyo wireless phones were an industry standard benchmark for Sprint with leading edge technology for its day,

The early Sanyos and both the candy bar style and their flip phones were top notch,

The LAST GOOD Sanyo was the SCP-8400

Then Sanyo sold off their wireless phone division and NAME to Kyrocera (as it was less the one half of one percent of their market and they wanted to focus on other consumer tech)to up until this point made gas station and discount store prepaid phones.

Kyrocera are responsible for the flimsy line of Katanas (the original Katana SCP 6600 and the Katana DLX (SCP 8500) were alright, the Kyrocero ZIO and that flea market generic Nin...
