    I have a samsung i500 now and I feel like I'm ready for a new phone, but after looking over phonescoop.com and seeing the selction of phones they have for sprint, my question, is, or those the only phones I can get right now from sprint?

    I just didn't see any that interested me. Like I see phones like the Sony Ericsson K750i and I would love to have it, but I don't believe it's compatible with sprint's system.

    Is there anywhere else that I can look to find other phones other then the ones on Sprint's site and phonescoop.com?

    Only on Sprint's site will you find current phones that you can use. On friday out comes the Blade, 2 weeks later the 920, 2 weeks after that the 960.

    Sprint has a decent lineup, but not the best.

    I'm not a huge fan of clamshell phones.

    The blade doesn't interest me and I couldn't find any info on the other two, but I did find this good website. www.sprintusers.com

    So how good is the treo 650? Any cons to the Audiovox Pocket PC 6600 ?

    .

    Don't bother with the 6600. Get the 6700.

    DOT. Dot.....Dotdotdotdotdotodot.

    The ppc6700 is much better than the 6600 and the Treo 650. More features, smaller size. Just awesome.

    isn't the 6700 the wizard? that's the one I'm looking at, but I'm hesitant to switch from T-Mobile (no contract right now) to sprint.

    Similar, but its actually the apache. Slight differences like the processor and hte antenna nub. Slight different in design too.

    Just do a trial with Sprint. They have a trial period of 2 weeks or a month, so test it out. Should be plenty of time for you to decide. then if you want to switch, just have sprint port your number within the 14day or 30 day trial period. Then you're set to go. The best part is, if you don't like the phone/service, you can cancel with minimal charges and continue on with your tmobile account.

    awesome. Thanks for the help guys. The 6700 it is. Now I don't need a new plan, so I have to buy the phone outright. Anyone know of some good sites to buy this phone at a decent price?
