New phones??

I currently have the Sanyo-8100 and i'm waiting for Sprint to come out with really nice new phones. I want a really tiny color phone (w/ vision but not necessarily a camera). All of the smaller phones on the Sprint PCS site are about the same size as my current phone so there isnt really a point in buying a new one now. My friend with Verizon has a phone by Samsung that is very small. Has anyone heard anything about Sprint coming out with similar phones?

Please don't post unless you KNOW the answer.

Over the past couple of months I have been looking at this website almost every day for new posts and phones that plan on coming out and I have been looking at the forums. It would be a great help to all of us at phonescoop that UNLESS you KNOW the answer FOR CERTAIN about a question, don't post your answer. I am not saying that I know the answer to all questions or queries but neither do all of you. Try keeping your answers as clear and concise as possible, therefore, making it easier for the person asking the question to get the correct answer for his/her question. Please reply to this post with any comments you all might have. Have a great day.

"Selective" Vision

I have noticed that sometimes I cannot get to local WAP sites I have bookmarked --"Communication Error" etc -- while national sites like CNN or Yahoo! come in fine. Anyone else have this? Any ideas?

Discount on 2x treo 600 at store vs amazon

I am hoping to buy two treo 600's this week and get the 2000 min plan with business connect. I noticed that amazon has the phone for 399 vs the store by me for 449. I approached the manager and he became outright unfriendly and said he had no flexibility. In my view I am making a 24 month commitmenment for over $3700 and the store should be motivated to have the business with them not at amazon. Maybe I a wrong, can someone PLEASE tell me what type of control local store managers have on this item. By the way they had 8 treo 600's in stock.

Thank you in advance for the help Confused

Sprint PCS $100 plan

Last month I signed up for the sprint plan with 2000 minutes for 2 phones for a $100. The Sprint Rep told me that I would get unlimited mobile to mobile, vision with readylink and unlimited nights and week-ends. Now that I got my first bill, there is an extra charge of $20 for readylink on the second phone??? I called sprint and the rep told me that you have to pay extra for the second phone's readylink? Has that happend to anyone or is that true???Thanks

Don't respond to Emails, phone calls, or web pages which tell you to call
an "809" area Phone Number.

This is a very important issue of Scam Busters because it alerts you to a
scam that is spreading *extremely* quickly, can easily cost you $2400 or
more, and is difficult to avoid unless you are aware of it.

We'd like to thank Verizon for bringing this scam to our attention.

This scam has also been identified by the National Fraud Information
Center and is costing victims a lots of money.

There are lot of different permutations of this scam.


You will receive a message on your answering machine or your pager, which
asks you to call a number beginning with area cod...
