    What is the best cell phone out right now that will work with Sprint?

    Like the Treo 650 or better

    any price

    if i get this new job im going to be stuck in a motel room and travelling 2 months at a time. I think spending a bit of money on a phone would help me occupy my time.

    And since Sprint records their available ESN's that's going to work on the Sprint network how again?

    I never said it would work for sprint, I was making a point that if he wants the BEST out right now, he has to go to VZW and get the samsung i730. CDMA sucks.

    whats your point? I worked for them because I needed a summer job during college. I never liked them tho, I always had tmobile when I was working there :dunno:

    CDMA is fine, until it comes to wanting a specific phone. thats all. Now stop being a little girl :p

    Verizon has like 2 good phones out...and the samsung is the best phone right now if you want a pdaphone. Just because I like one phone doesn't mean that I like CDMA. Did I switch to vzw to get this phone? Nope, b/c in a couple of months the wizard will be out and I much prefer GSM so I can use different phones for different purposes.

    And my credit is excellent thanks, my sister is a real estate agent and knows many loan officers that say my status is fine and with my salary when I start working, I'd have 0 problems getting a good rate on a mortgage :) So :fawk: and stop thinking you're hot shit bitch, cuz you're just a guy that works fixing phones for a living. My friend with the intelligence of a dead goldfish does the same shit you do :mamoru:

    But to be serious, sprint blows monkey ass and CDMA sucks. Why else has the vast majority of the world used GSM technology :mamoru:

    Because it has been around longer, and is cheeper to maintain. But hey, so are carburetors but you don't see many motors being built with them anymore. :mamoru::mamoru:

    Tell me again how I can switch from one phone to another in less than 30 seconds with CDMA? :fawk:

    But this is a useless arguement, both have their uses. Like CDMA is good for showing people the way to a better world with GSM :o

    Your best agrument is a SIM card. And then there's Sprint, which now 1/2 it's phone lineup has SIM cards.

    The keyboard is shitty and bluetooth sucks on it.

    It doesn't even have EVDO enabled on it does it? :mamoru: :down:

    The i730 should be released with a camera in oct-nov for consumer sales once the price goes down a bit from what I've read. Get it then :cool:

    Thats a good thing. The cameras are always crap, and the target market for such phones tend to go in places where cameras and camera phones aren't allowed due to sensitive information and whatnot.

    GSM only, and if its 900/1800/1900 like most SE, then pretty much TMobile here in the states, cingular wouldn't work too well with it

    No, it does not. It was made to have it, but the protocol changed and it's ev-do programming was rendered worthless.
