Not my experience at all. I find coverage is fine.

I had a 7400 and now have a 9000.

Have found 7400 and 4920 coverage to be good.

I agree with the previous posters - no issues with coverage at all.

My wife now has my old 5600 and she has not had any issues either.

Perhaps you have a faulty phone or maybe its just one model that is effcted???




When you live your life on Twitter and Facebook, and are only friends with like minded people on Twitter and Facebook, you are not living in the real world. You are living in a narcissistic echo chamber.

The Sanyo handsets all have good ERP and exceed Telecoms coverage requirements. In comparison tests to other phones the Sanyo's all perform as well or better than other models.

Coverage/reception quality is influenced by a number of factors both from a device and network perspective.

It should also be remembered that handsets can become insensitive from harsh physical treatement, water damage, etc. If you think your handset is not performing to spec get it checked at the service agent.

Most users forget to extend the aerial on phones that have an extenable antenna - where these are fitted the phone is optimised for RF performance with the antenna extended.

From experiece from rural areas and marginal coverage clients, Nokia Handsets on CDMA beat Sanyos across the board hands down, expecially 6155/3155 & 6255.

Note that dealers in citys sell what ever as most of their clients are not chuffed and spend very little time in marginal coverage, but often in smaller centres with large rural pops, Nokias are the choice and the only handsets that will work in the poor areas. Sanyos expecially with PTT perform less than adequately in low coverage.
