From someone who uses the f7200

I received my Lg F7200 last week for training for my employees. Having used it here are my opinions. The phone lacks for features, I use bluetooth devices of all types and must have it which means i won't be using the f7200 for long. Its a decent phone with a short talk time batt. I like the slide features, it is smooth and durable (so far) unlike the siemens sl56. I dislike the lack of data ports, there is no easy way to transfer data to and from the phone which means the only way to get ringtones is to buy them. The push to talk feature is sufficient. I never saw the reason for this feature outside of businesses. I will say that I was supprised at its speed. There is no delay, and if there is any it is less than a second. No came...

PTT facts for Big Orange

No, the Nokia 6102 or 6682 will NOT be push to talk.

There will be two launch models. Samsung SGH D357 and LG 7200.

Pricing will likely be like a bolt on. Ex: $10 a month for unlimited service.

Overall network latency will be FASTER then Nextel.

Although Kodiak is employed by other carriers such as Alltel, Cingulars PTT will NOT be compatible. (in other words, you can't PTT anyone outside of Cingular)

What about when...?

This is a repost of one I made a few days ago in a different forum, I added a few other points so you might want to re-read it.

Alot of you make good points. That is those of you that are actually discussing cingular's participation into the PTT share of the market.

Without trying to sound like a cingular fanboy, but with a lack of a better way to pose this question, What do you think will happen 2 years from now when nextel's iDEN technology goes strictly government, and you have to revert to sprint's VoIP version of PTT?
Sprint is already in the works to intergrate new phones that use sprints old system, while the DoD is in the works of buying out sprint/nextel's portion of the iDEN technology.

Cingular took a few years to h...

nov. 15

i just talked to the guy from cingular and this phone is out on the 15th of this month when they launch there push to talk service.
but we know how they are, they rarely know whats going on.

Hey I am a Cingular rep outta the Baltimore/DC Market. We got 2 of these phones in today as testers. And I must say, Nextel is done.

You cant just bleep someone right off the top, the other PTT user has to accept your invite in order to be able to talk to eachother. Once the invite is accepted, you will never have to ask to talk to them again. Good for you Nextel users who just interupt people and bleep and scream stupid **** lol.

The initial delay is around 3-4 seconds.
After the initial delay, there is absolutely no delay.
Converting PTT calls to regular phone calls is extremely easy, just the push of a button.
The PTT worked where I had no reception.
The speaker is as loud as Nextel.

Overall, as long as the sales people push ...

Got this phone in our store yesterday and have the PTT running. Awesome stuff. Very Happy

I believe pricing will be $9.99 for unlimited PTT use.

I'm looking forward to the SammieD357.

And I hear that the nokia 6682 will NOT have PTT after all.

cingular's first phone with PTT

i already saw the launch materials for this phone, and though i am an LG hater, i must say it looks pretty cool.

i have no idea how PTT pricing will be, nor any other handsets with PTT,

CCD Camera Phones

Were there any camera phones that use a CCD sensor rather than a CMOS?

All the megapixels in the world done mean a thing if the lens and the sensor are not high quality.

If you compare the MPX220 1.3 mp CMOS camera to the SE S710A 1.3 mp CCD camera there is no comparison.

Aside from the s710a are any other manufacturers planing on putting together a phone with a CCD camera to compete with the s710a?

The reason I ask is that I like all the features on the Sony-ericsson, but I do not like their interface. I may stand alone on this fact but I prefer the motorola interface, especially when it comes to their predictive text input and various menu navigation.

I am trying out the s710a for a few days and I have decided they...

I think what is missing

That should have been reported were the small upstart companies.

I talked to some of the manufacturer reps and more than a few of them were impressed with the design and build qualities of some of the smaller Chinese and Korean venture groups.

One group that was really impressive at the show was NewGen with their really cool designs.

Under an inform discussion in the eating area, some of the these product managers feel that in the next 10 years, some of them (like Hop On, Bird, New Gen, Telson) maybe in the top 10 market and some of the older stalwarts in the world markets (like Alcatel, Philips, Siemens and Mitsubishi) may pull out as phones becomes total commodity items.

About "Cingular" on the F7200 screen...

Like I mentioned for reasons stated in the new Part 2, I complied with LG's request and covered up the carrier logo on the F7200 keypad.

I'm sure some of you also noticed that it said "Cingular" on the display, and I did not cover that up...

That was intentional. It was not an oversight, and is not any kind of "cheating" with LG's request.

The deal is... what a GSM phone says on the screen is not necessarily the carrier that brands and sells that phone. Depending on how the phone and/or SIM chip are configured, the name on the screen is usually that of the carrier that sold the SIM, or the current network the phone may be roaming on.

So the fact that it says "Cingular" on the screen means very little and doesn't necessarily gives...
