You should contact your carrier (Sprint) for the rates, and for initial technical support to get connected if you havent already done so (unless any existing Sprint 7400 data users can jump in and tell us how?).

If you have contacted them, and are having trouble, let us know where you are up to.

The 7400 is a CDMA 1x phone, so you should expect speeds between 40 - 80 kbps, though here in NZ we mostly get over 100kbps on 1x.

The 7400 is only a CDMA 1x handset, it's not EVDO.

CDMA EVDO rev A - max 2.4Mbps (average around 300-500Kbps)

Slight amendment. ;p

CDMA 1X - max 153Kbps
CDMA EVDO Rel 0 - max 2.4Mbps (average around 300-500Kbps), upload max 153Kbps
CDMA EVDO Rev A - max 3.1Mbps, upload max 1.8Mbps

I'll definitely be interested in seeing how Rev A performs once they upgrade the network and release it. Course then there's still the matter of getting Rev A capable hardware to make use of the new bells & whistles. :)

Jp.

I dont know if anyone else knows this, but due to Push to Talk (weither its on or off) the Sanyo phones cannot be used as modems, as the push to talk service takes up the data slot.

Good point, forgot to mention that was the case for NZ. 2manyproblems appears to be US based and I'm pretty sure the phones are configured differently over there, so you can still do data. Not 100% certain on that though.

SphinxNZ: I dont know if anyone else knows this, but due to Push to Talk (weither its on or off) the Sanyo phones cannot be used as modems, as the push to talk service takes up the data slot.

With the cost of CDMA PCMCIA cards having dropped dramatically, this is probably less of an issue these days. (although it would be nice to still have the capability).
