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?
I can't comment as an owner but from a few other reviews I've seen it looks to have good reception. Plus, the sales rep at the Sprint store I went to, to check it out, said that it should be pretty good.

But again..I don't actually own the phone y...
I've seen a couple of reviews too, where they said the reception is bad. I've been using it for a week now in a moderate signal area and haven’t had any issues other than occasional roaming and some dropped calls.

The reception is simi...
The Eclipse is not up to Sanyo's usual standards for reception. Reception is much better than my Motorola Razr v9m. Of course the Moto display was larger. Trade offs...

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?
I got one for my moto ve20. I like it. They snap on and fit very good and snug. They have cut outs for all external buttons and ports, so no functionality is inhibited. It does not in any way prevent the phone from fully closing.

I don't use it all...

Phone As A Modem

Can this phone be used as a modem for my laptop computer?
yes, but sprint can tell you used it and will charge you extra.

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.

Having owned both phones they sound very similar although I feel Sanyo's earpiece's are a bit dull sounding compared to LG... Otherwise Sanyo quality is much better.

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...
