    Not a bad phone overall. Some have trouble taking over the air PRL
    updates and a few have had problems with certain buttons on the keypad
    being unresponsive.

    I've used my 4920 for two months now and have had no problems with it.
    The one and only software update was done at the Sprint store.

    Pros: long battery life, fast boot, great range, good voice quality.

    Cons: display very hard to see in bright sunlight compared to my old
    Samsung VGA1000. Roaming and PCS Vision settings return to defaults
    when turned off.

    All of these are first rate. For the past 3+ years my wife and
    I have used only Sanyo phones, from the 4700 to the 4900 and the 4920.
    I got the 4920's because I renewed my contract and could get two new
    phones with a very good rebate. Otherwise I probably would have
    remained happy with the 4900 indefinitely. Note that I don't use any
    advanced functions, such as phone-as-modem, synchronization with
    computer apps, Vision, etc.

    Signal strength is extremely important to me, and in this area
    the Sanyo line has always been really outstanding. Speakerphone has
    worked exceptionally well the few times I tried it, but I don't have
    much need for it. Reports from the persons on the other side were that
    the sound was very bright and distinct. Same on my side.

    With the 4920 I've often been asked if I was on a land line. I
    can say with certainty that the recipient gets very good fidelity in
    most cases. Some have complained that the earpiece on Sanyo phones has
    a slightly "fuzzy" sound. I can see this, but it's been so long since
    I used another company's phone that I can't draw a comparison.

    Unless you use Vision (in which case the 4920 display and
    functions are friendlier) there's almost no difference between the two
    models in terms of form factor, etc. The 4920's a bit smaller overall.
    A technical difference is that the 4920 is dual band/tri-mode and as I
    recall, the 4900 is dual/dual.

    4900 accessories are not compatible with the 4920 models, but
    if I recall, the 4920 power unit is backward-compatible with the 4900.
    It's been a while, I may be mistaken about the latter, but I think
    that's the case.
