    Thanks for the input.
    I fixed the problem. I threw the phone on the ground as hard as I could. Low and behold a brand new SANYO KATANA II arrived from Sprint. So everything is working fine now.

Not sure about the bars, but you can go to the settings in the main menue and try to go to roam only. It could be that you r carrier is having a problem with their tower. Your phone, normally, will try to stay on your carriers towers. If you force it to a roaming status, you might get a better signal, but on a roaming network.

Good luck!

My sanyo pm 8200 wont hold charge!


Since the battery and charger are new and yet it does not still hold charge.

Have put the battery in another similar phone and try to charge with your charger to see if it will hold charge? if you have.

It means the charging port of your phone is bad and you will need to replace it.

The charger is not charging the battery in anyway because the charging port is bad, so just change your charging port, your phone will now hold charge.

Take care.

Won't turn on

Sounds like you both need to contact your carrier for the repair office phone number. Sometimes the carriers can reset the phone for a fix, sometimes the phone needs more detail attention that a repair office could help with,.

Call your carrier for assistance. usually it is the last 4 digits of your phone number. However, if somebody has set a code on it... you might be able to go online to retrieve the info. I would FIRST call your carrier they may have a simple fix.
