For an old phone you can't beat the PM-8200 !

I've never had a problem with my PM-8200, I've owned lots of cell phones & been with lots of different carriers too. Sprint has been a pleasure to work with, and my phone's been a truly flawless performer. This truly is the Swiss Army knife of old school flip phones, the only gripe I have is that you can't get EvDO access with this phone, but that's not the fault of Sanyo or Sprint, it's just an older phone. But still excellent non the less ! Less

Happiness

from Amazon
This little expensive item provided happiness as a Christmas gift to my wife in 2005. It was the color of phone (regardless of manufacturer) that she had her eyes set on so that gift was an easy selection. In over a year of usage, the phone is still working great, the battery has been replaced and she is still happy. That's the bottom line.

Wow I have read so many bad reviews that I wonder if there was a bad batch. Sound-excellent Reliable-has not once shut down on me Solo customer service-excellant Extras- the call display and free internet are options I make good use of. Alarm clock-the best I have ever had Battery-I have forgotten to charge this phone and it worked great however I question what is up with the beeping even after I have just charged the phone. Camera-unless you are a serious picture taker this phone gets the job done. Overall view-This is a good practical phone.Easy to hold and easy to use. Less

I have had this phone for about 9 months. I never really had any problems with the phone such as reception or battery life. Actually, I was sort of surprised at how long I could go without charging. Speakerphone always sounded clear on my end, but occasionally the other person was unable to hear me clearly. The camera is fairly easy to use. My problems with the phone have just recently begun. The first thing to happen was that the END button stopped working completely and I could not end calls, a big problem when you weren't planning to leave a voicemail! The only other option was to close the phone to end calls. Shortly after that, the phone couldn't recognize it was closed. It thought it was always OPEN! I couldn't see who was calling from the external screen and at times, the phone would answer itself. More recently, my TALK button has been shorting out, as well as the OK button. Sprint is willing to offer a replacement phone for $35 or a new keypad for about the same. I am stuck with this phone until I'm eligible for a free phone or I can switch carriers altogether. Choose wisely! Less

Battery Won't Hold Charge

from Amazon
My battery will not hold more than one bar(if lucky) unless I spend half my day plugging and fiddling with wire. Problem onset was at about 13th month. Now i need a new phone but would rather remedy the issue if possible. I'll keep looking but man its easy to tell which are Sprint reps and which are phone users.

I have had this phone for almost a year now, and although the signal reception is great, the sound quality on this phone is HORRIBLE! I have to ask the person calling me to repeat themselves at least once every call because the voice quality is so muddy. My wife has a different (and cheaper) phone and it sounds MUCH better. The only reason I have put up with it this long is I do not use my phone very often. I would not recommend this phone to anyone. This phone sounds worse than any other phone I have owned. Stay away from this phone!!! Less

I have had my 8200 for a little more than a year, and generally I liked it, but after owning it for about 6 months, I started having problems keeping it charged. The charge wouldn't hold at all, and the phone would say the charging was complete when it couldn't even power up. I went to Sprint for help, but after three hours of diagnostic testing, the store manager gave it back to me and said there was nothing wrong with it! She said I was to go buy a ANOTHER charger (to the tune of $50) and that would solve the problem. It did for a while, but after another couple of months it is happening again. I will be heading to the Sprint store this morning on the off chance that they will care. I went last night, but I discovered when I got there that they now close at 6:00 pm instead of 8:00 pm. Thanks for the @*%#$!+ support, Sprint! Less
