Don't Ever Think of Dropping The SANYO VI-2300, not even on Carpet
I had been a loyal costumer of Cingular Wireless for many, many years, I had been using the same Motorola V60 phone almost as long. Anyhow, one day, after much convincing my wife talked me into switching over to Sprint. B I G M I S T A K E.
