I have sent a email to Sprint PCS asking if this phone will indeed be launched. I got a responce the next day saying it will be released, or "Coming Soon" as they put it, and that more information will be available the closer they get to the launch date (Which of course they would not say what that date is).

So it looks as if it IS coming. Just taking it's sweet A$$ time. 🙄

I just got new info from a Sprint technician that the phone failed the first test because they couldn't get a signal on it and reception sucked. Right now it's going through the second testing stage, and if it clears it, it should be released before Christmas. If it doesn't pass, it's going to be a while before it is released.

I am a Sprint tier2 data support specialist and I have played with the T608. I found the menus slick and it appears to be full of all the features our phones usually lack. Next time I get my hands on it, I will test out the bluetooth connectivity. I'm not sure at this point whether it is capable of being used wirelessly as a modem. Sprint has a pretty sandy vagina about people using phones as modems and having the unlimited vision add-on. I wouldn't be a bit surprised if this phone turns out to have the ability, but we are told not to support it. I project it will come out around Christmas too, since I've opened the box and made calls on the phone. Signal was better than my A500, reception was OK. Not sure if that is the reason for the hold ...

Do you think it's strange that before it's officially announced, Sony has posted a PDF of the manual for the T608 as a Sprint phone....

check it out:

go to the T608 choose support/user guides.

I wonder why they would do this before testing was complete.....?

simple. not thinking + Sony ericsson + Sprint = no results. This may be a reason behind the posting of the Users manual for the T608 when in liklihood, Sprint will never get it.

Is this phone really coming? I though Sony Ericson had shut down their North American CDMA division that was in charge of this. Anyone know for sure. I just got a PDA with bluetooth and would love to see this phone happen.
