Sanyo Katana / SCP-6600
For all the haters!
measly ass says lets see how many of you masterminds make a phone . Oh and the little comments sanyo doe...
Reasnality -vs- Normability
Sanyo, as a company, is smart. Taking a chip off of TinyJ316's block, "Don't fix what ain't broke, and if you can still sell it by changing the package, then by god, do it." You can't tell me you wouldn't.
Working for Sprint and directly dealing with people who don't know what kind of
Anyway to change which menu keys do what?
Your bluetooth recs?
Never used bluetooth b4. What pairs well with Katana? Call quality is my major criteria (not size, looks, talk time, or cost). Often use phone in car with significant road/tire noise. Probably will consider bluetooth as the need for adapter to use corded earpiece is one aspect of Katana that is quite unappealing. Thanks
First of, The Katana is made by Sanyo which makes it a good phone right off. Now before everyone calls me bias, notice the noun I used. Phone. While other companies focus on fitting in MP3's, megapixel cameras, and other devices into a cell phone; Sanyo's expertise and focus has always been in the actual "phone". Receptions with ANY Sanyo is amazing. How amazing? I used to sell phones in Florida, and during a storm, if you didn't have a Sanyo, you didn't have rece...

Adding Opera Mini to Katana
The download site is blocked, and when I text 96077 I get a message back from mediaplazza saying it's "not available for your cellphone."
drezden said: "I installed the Opera Mini web browser right away . . ."
drezden - How did you do that?
Has anyone else been able to download and install Opera Mini on their Katana? If so, how?
How to get contact info in phone
i would definately get it then, plus it would look really cool.
Katana as Webcam ?
Sprint's equipment return policy?
I understand it's basically a 30 day open window for exchanging, but I'm wondering if that's only for phones purchased from Sprint.com & free standing stores, or would that also apply if I purchased from Best Buy or Radio Shack?
It seems like I can upgrade at Best Buy to either the Blade or Katana, and it's an out the door cash deal as opposed to waiting on rebates from Sprint.
Bluetooth File Transfer?
So here's the thing...
Obviously, feature-wise, the Fusic is a lot better and gives more, but it would also cost me about $50 more and I also prefer the Katana look.
I've read a lot of stuff about the phone, and it seems that people that are really high tech and want the uber high speed internet, uber good camera, etc. dislike the Katana. I'm really not too worried about the high speed... The VGA camera is probably good enough for me.
What do you think? And keep in mine that it's $50 less and looks a lot better.
