PM8200 Signal Strength


May 22, 2004, 2:46 PM
Day 2 into a 14-day trial with Sprint with the PM8200 and very much like it, including near Motorola speaker-phone quality. But, half the signal bars show that my Samsung SCH 8500 had and concerned whether it will fade quicker? Anybody around high buildings in Chicago or New York notice PM8200 signal problems? Thanks.

The signal indicator on the 8200 and 7300 have been re calibrated. Although they indicate a lower signal than the older Sanyo phones it is the same. I am not sure why they decided to do this but oh well. I have the 8200 and 4500 and although they indicate different readings the quality is the same in the same location. Hope this helps.

I think they have recalibrated to make the phones more in line with reality. At a recent Sprint training the Samsung rep was mentioning how some Sanyo phones have ultra optimistic signal strength. My 8100 seemed to always have full strength, and I've noticed my 8200 is usually one bar less in different locations. I need to do a side-by-side comparison.
