They don't sell any more Sharp models like this in the US do they. I haven't seen a Sharp cellphone presented or new releases in-stores for years now. This phone looks like the typically in-fashioned cellphone styles in Japan. I have always wanted one that has similar characteristics as this phone to start selling in the US instead of only Japan, but I'm not quite sure if the Americans would also feel the same...
Getting a phone similar to this online is just to risky and expensive. International phones always rule compared to the ugly and LQ phones in the US. We always get the bad ones and Asia gets the really good ones, like games, technology. *sigh*
good day everyone! anyone knows if this phone can be use in the philippines? are all features on this phone can be operational in the philippines like 3g, gprs, mms, and internet? please answer me... thanks ahead....

However, the China version of this phone by SHARP is fully unlocked. It's the SH9020C. It has Chinese and English. It's the exact phone. It is also able to go online in the U.S. if you sign Data service with it. &There are no reception problems or reconnection problems. I use this phone myself. Hope the information was helpful. You can get the SH9020C right for around $700.

The china version 9020c. Same model as the 923SH is fully unlocked and does not require the Hypersim. I have one right now and it supports Mp3 ringtones, Internet, and you can download your themes directly onto the phone. If you get the softbank one it probably doesn't allow Mp3 ringtones, and no internet.
Plus, no CPRing.
Up to you though. I would love the Japanese one for the Japanese text support. But I don't like to CPR all the time.
Go to the Japaense phones, and there is a tread, enter to it, to see the infos abou Japaense phones, even Japanese Sony Ericsson!

With a Hyper sim you can only call, if you want to use the Wifi exemple, you have to pay montly for Softbank, if you want to use the good functions you have to make a media unlock ex the One Seg TV will not work without the media unlock. I like Sharp, coz they are the best in the whole world, but I don't want to pay for Softbank. I know they want to enter in the European market, and when they enter, I hope they will enter with great clamshell smartphones. Just look at the Sharp Sh-01A, is a smartphone, has Symbian, version 9,3 or 9,4. Has a big screen, has great TV function, you can rotate the screen!!!
Soon Softbank will announce their summer collection, you will see 3 great devices, or two, one will have 8 Mp CCD camera, and one with 10 MP CCD cam!!! These phones will be available in Taiwan and China. When they will lead the market will enter in the European markets with great devices!!! Not just Sharp will enter in the European markets, Toshiba want to enter with Winmob. smartphones, and Fujitsu.
When they will be in the European market, I will buy ONLY SHARP, this thing is true for sure!
I have this phone, (sh9020c) it works fine in europe, i installed al the settings for mms, web and email and everything is working wel. I just like sharp they are the best ever!
Sharp is the best in the world, I think soon we will see great phones in the whole world, first in Europe. They want to produce phones from Europe, but first they want to make phones from Taiwan, and China.
SHARP, you ARE THE BEST, PLEASE produce for Europe too such phones!!! Sharp is the best, believe me!!!
I know...everyone outside asia gets the boot here. Brilliant phone. I almost got it but it cost too much to import it for me.
