Where is the Samsung M800? God i hate Sprint. These 3 phones are S****y at best, and its all they are offering into April.

You complain about the phones that Sprint will be offering within the next few months, but you don't realize how fortunate you are that you even know what will be available. With Verizon Wireless, we have absolutely no idea when phones will be available until a week or less before they are actually released.

tim@at&t - Sprint is getting the curve 2nd Quarter of this year, usually Verizon releases right around the same time...so not really a long wait.

I wonder if this is a big hoax from sprint, has it really signed with samsung for the m800

8. j.c. unregistered

the m520 or "Lumina" is going to be available at radioshack on the 17th. its like the samsung ultra series and sprint's answer to the shine on att. light on features but cheap too! sure to be a popular upgrade for those year-old razr customers

10. Kelvin unregistered

11. Julian unregistered

Sprint is coming out with the curve next month

12. ace owner unregistered

OBVIOUSLY this would be a shot in the dark but is there anyway to find out if this damn phone was even approved by the fcc? because im losing faith in the possible release of this phone altogether, because pics/info of it leaked online waaay back in jan 200. and we DONT even have a TENTATIVE release date for it.

13. matt4sprint unregistered

for everybody: no reasons why sprint 'suks' is not a legit claim, so untill you can explain why, sorry, you just sound a little inmature, and the M800 is signed and is set for june 1st (Q) do a little research before you B**CH like a little girl, there are few new phones set for april as well

sprint...where do i start..well i have a razor which is a piece of junk haha.the screen freezes and it wont send text messages even when i have good service also the phones that they have to choose from are retarded...

17. unregistered

that is because the razor line is junk, not sprint...

16. ida lal unregistered

18. unregistered

19. unregistered

The thing is...I don't understand why people say "sprint sucks." I actually have sprint, and do not have a problem with them. I think they are a very good carrier. Their EVDO network is pretty fast. I tested the difference between EDGE(At&T), and sprint. Sprint seemed faster. Also sprints network does not seem restricted. I can download most "third-party" applications to my phone. I know for a fact, many carriers, including verizon, restrict the WAP downloading. While sprint may not have an overall full network like verizon, their coverage is still sufficient and I dont have static in my calls. I know some people say verizon is better vs sprint for CDMA networks. I beg to differ. I had VZW for prepaid, and I always had dropped calls and sucky service. In fact, I live in the downtown area of my city, and verizon DOES NOT have service here, and still does not(tested it with friends' phones). Meanwhile, I have full service with sprint. Verizon claims their EVDO network is here, but everyone I talk to does not have evdo coverage with verizon here. I do agree that some of the phones that sprint has released dont peak my interest, however, verizon seems almost the same. My actual only issue with sprint is that most windows mobile PDA's and blackberries on the sprint network DO NOT support "sprint picture mail". They claim their software is incompatible. Pictures can still be sent as an email, but like i have time to know everyone's carrier and email address? Hopefully that can be corrected in the future. Most of their other phones DO support picture mail. Hopefully we all will have a universal MMS service rather than each restricted carrier's service. I actually like the choice of sprint's "everything plan" which includes EVERYTHING (all messaging, voice, data). Verizon has an "unlimited plan", but it doesn't appear to support unlimited data, or you have to pay extra for the "navigation, tv, etc", unlike with sprint. At&t seems the same way. I actually prefer sprint because I am data dependent, and if they didn't have the unlimited data(at a great value), I don't know what I would do.. So I would say don't go bashing out sprint....just b/c of choices in phones or stuff not coming out on time. AT&T was supposed to have the blackberry bold (GPS, WIFI, HSPDA, etc.) in July...and it just now came out to Rogers Wireless in Canada the beginning of Sept 08? So not every carrier is perfect, it is just ones' personal preference.

i have the rumor and the screen broken one way and the freakin thing always turn off when i have a full battery!!! i want a new phone for free! :(

The HTC pro also looks like it will be a nice one. I think the simple design is probably the best feature -- overly flashy without Flash support not as useful.http://www.experts123.com/questions/filter/sprint
