I really like the Sanyo 8200 but I don't need a speakerphone/push to talk.
So apart from the speakerphone , what is the difference between the 8100/8200 and would you recommend either?.

Thanks for any help.

thoroughly recommend the 8200 over the 8100.

0.3MP vs 0.1MP, a better quality screen, slightly nicer UI (minor improvements + more options)

Just a better phone all round in my opinion.

You looking at secondhand units? An 8100 can be had for very cheap compared to an 8200 (should be able to get 8100 for well under $200 these days), in which case if price is a concern, then that may make the decision for you.

Thanks for the reply, I think i'll take your advice and wait for a good deal on the 8200.

One more question. After looking at the Sprint website, i have noticed the Sanyo 8300 and people saying the 8200 is being discontinued. How long will it be until N.Z gets the Sanyo 8300? Because hopefully this will mean i can get the 8200 in a stock clearance sale or at least at a discounted price.

That has very little bearing here. I dont know if Telecom is getting the 8300 (though personally I doubt it), the 8200 has already dropped in price, and they generally dont go rock-bottom before they sell out, they stay at a normal price - so waiting isnt going to help, as you may end up missing out altogether.
