Sprint offers first PTT slider, the Motorola Debut i856
Sprint has announced today the availability of its' first cellphone that combines a slider form factor with PTT functionality. The Motorola i856 Debut is making its'...ahem...debut on the pin-dropping network. The handset allows for quick sub one second call set-up and access to the largest PTT community through Nextel Direct Connect. The Nextel network currently reaches more than 274 million people living in 17,500 cities. The phone costs $99.99 after a $50 mail-in-rebate and a 2 year contract and is available at Sprint retail stores, online and through telesales. When not being used to stay in touch with your business partners, the Debut has many consumer oriented features like a 1.3MP camera, a 2.2 inch display, and a 3.5mm audio jack that can be used with the music player that is on board. While Sprint is just offering the Debut today, the model has been available through Boost Mobile since early September as we reported.

Ok seriously "moss500a" you are the only GAY one on here... the fact that you have to go and comment on each article that has nothing to do with your beloved VERIZON just to sit there and call other carriers and their subscribers gay just shows how much of a immature little bitch you really are... I sell Verizon so don't get me wrong they are a great company but they are not the best... All carriers bring something different to the table... Verizon brings great coverage but a crappy selection of phones... For you Verizon may be the best but for another person it might not be... it all come down to WHERE YOU LIVE, PLANS OFFERED, PRICE AND IF THAT CARRIER CAN OFFER YOU ALL THE THINGS YOU ARE LOOKING FOR! For example if you lived in Hollywood, CA you would have T-Mobile service since they get the best reception there NOT Verizon! Keep your trap shut if you can't be polite... No one gives a shit that you love Verizon so much that you would fuck the company if it were at all possible... so how about you do everyone a favor go out get a girlfriend and do something productive with your life... or if you are GAY then find yourself a man... And if your to much of a pathetic loser to do that then just do everyone a favor and crawl under a rock because know one cares what YOU THINK!!!! Peace Bitch!!!

I agree with you DonLouie... I love having the extra money in my pocket every month... Unlike moss500a who pays a shitload for his "great" service and probably lives with his mother because he can't afford a life!

Shell, don't forget that with my extra money I get 7pm n/w's, AnyMobile, unlimited messaging, 800 minutes of roaming, data roaming, entertainment (5 live TV channels, live radio w/o mentioning full episodes, clips and music channels), nav on top of a recurring discount on my plan. For vzw fanman, I travel and live in a deep rural area in MI now spending my travels in the boondocks but pay no mind to what my $150 (plus $21 ins. on 3 lines) for 1500 minutes before discounts gets because I'm truly happy (GAY) for no reason

I'm not sure if you misread that i was AGREEING with you... I am also a Sprint customer and only pay $150 a month (for 3 lines) for all the same features you have mentioned but on top of that i also get a discount through my one of my employers. So sorry you had to tell me everything that we both have LOL!

I didn't misread, just wanted to add on to my previous post and throw it in the homophobes face. I applaud you not being a sheep like most of Verizon's subs and employees. I myself recognize the great network they've acquired and 3G they have along with the genius in third marketing but not enough to loose 100 minutes with the only unlimited data coming from my $30 smartphone plan because the Premium plan won't work with them meaning an extra cost for nav too. Shell, you are one of the very few
