You conveniently forgot to mention, that the problem does not exist for ALL
VM4500 handsets Phillipe. But that's nothing new for you, is it?
If one goes to sprintpcsuser.com to read the post, the last three paragraphs
from Hatoncat's post mention ...
"The other reason this hasn't been headlined is that, until recently, bad
batches have continued to be produced, increasing the chances of getting yet
another bad unit. The good news is that a new hardware revision, 201, has
been released that solves this issue.
If you have a Sanyo VM4500 with hardware revisions 100 or 101 (you can check
this under phone info or by dialing ##786 > OK Key > Save Phone Number), and
you are suffering from either of the above issues, take the phone to your
nearest Sprint Store and have the rep check the recall notices on their
intranet if they are not aware of the recall issue already.
Once again, if you are not suffering from these issues, do not have your
handset replaced just because there is a recall out there. You will stress
the supply of new units and there is a chance you may get an older (and
potentially defective) unit as well. "
