Sony t608 and Jabra 250 earphone: too many dropped calls

by delfish    Jan 18, 2005, 1:02 AM

The phone was purchased from Sprint in June, 2004 along with a Jabra 250 headset. I am on my 3rd T608 as of Jan. 14, 2005. Why?

I am a high time user- 3500 minutes +/month. It is a very important business tool. I use the phone for voice communications only. I do not know how or care to connect it to my laptop. I have had a plague of communications problems:

a. Dropped calls, the phone goes blank during a conversation, even while it is plugged in and recharging. I have had the phone drop the signal 3 and 4 times in a 5 minute call that was well within the proximatey of multiple Sprint towers.

b. Grabbled conversations: i have had people tell me not to call them on T-608.

both a. and B. are my chief complaints. Sprint shruggs their shoulders and give me another T-608. There is something very wrong this phone.

Does anyone else have this problem or am I the only one with three bad phones in a row.

I purchased a LG325, it does not have the problems listed above, but the protocal for using the headset is still a mystery after 4 days of trying to make it work. Unlike the Sony. I cannot initiate a call by pressing the button on the Jabra 250. I must handle the phone and go through about 4 steps fondling the phone, sliding the thing open and giggling around to make a call. i could have wreck trying to make a call.

The sony is so easy. I press the button on the Jabra 250, I hear the phone request the person name that I want to call. Then it ask home, office, mobile, etc. By voice i select the correct number and the number is dialed. One touch and two voice commands and I am talking. So simple. LG has not figured this one out.

Does anyone have suggestions. I am going to send this phone to sony to be checked out. Sony wants to blame Sprint. Bull. It is their phone. It is impossible. I have 3 regular phones in the past 7 years and none dropped calls. It is really weird to loose a call when the phone is on recharge all the time.
