Documents seen on the FCC site revealed the Samsung Z400, a ruggedized clamshell bound for Sprint. This CDMA EVDO phone will be the first phone to use Qualcomm's QChat PTT technology, which will be branded Direct Connect on the Sprint network. It has dual displays, with an OLED exterior display. It hosts stereo speakers, a camera, Bluetooth, and dual antennas: one at the top and one at the bottom. This phone has not been announced by Sprint or Samsung, so pricing and availability information are not available.

QChat Phone!

QChat is right around the corner. Sprint is going to really try and leverage this product as a stop
gap for all those Nextel business customers leaving them. Should be rolling out end of this quarter.
I think they are beginning to deploy these QChat phones now because they really wanna get people off from the degrading Nextel iDEN network. I just read a news article from Cellular-News that was saying how the new leader of Sprint really wants to str...
This phone I see as being a double win for Sprint...

It gets Nextel customers off the iDen network... which has to start happening soon. It also provides something that many Sprint customers have been asking for.

This is a durable phone. It...

Seriously, this phone looks like a crap coated kids toy. Who in their right mind will want to get rid of their iden phone for a phone that looks like a turd? Couldn't they have made something a little more appealing?

Hold UP Rich Eric(s)

This phone has 850 roaming right?
the FCC page shows it being tested in the 824-848 range so my experience tells me the answer is yes

😁 😁 😁
I'm gonna have to get this one myself!!
Sweet after further reading of the FCC docs it appears to have 850, which I always thought was the case just wanted to be sure 🤭

A nice change?

Well, Motorola makes nice phones for Nextel but you know Motorola OS aren't the fastest. Since this is Samsung, do you think it will be a nice change?
Could be. Would like to see what moto will offer though?
🤣 that's the ugliest phone i've seen in forever. then again it is a samsung. i wouldn't even wipe my brown eye with it. Motorola phones are where it's at but i agree their proprietary ui sucks but that can always be fixed...MOTOROLA! *cough coug...
