Summary: This is the best little phone I have ever owned. I can't believe that Sprint discontinued it. Very tough, great battery life, easy to access features, very compact, great reception. The new phones of this type offered by Sprint are crap. There are plenty of these available on Ebay, thankfully. They work on the new Sprint network. I hope years from now if and when this one wears out that they are still available. It is getting harder to find a good "phone" every day.
Summary: I got this phone when I lost another similar phone. This phone fairly rugged as far as cell phones go, and it worked just fine. When I found the lost phone, I went to the Sprint store to get service put back where it was. The service representative said that this phone is a Nextel phone, and that Sprint was shutting down that network of cell towers by June. He said that after that happens, this phone will not get service on the Sprint network.
Summary: First, I bought this phone for my father. He's 79, very hard on electronics and a smartphone is out of the question. This unit is a replacement for a similar one he went swimming with...which almost survived. It probably would have if he hadn't tried to dry it in an oven! For people who want a PHONE and just a phone, this unit is perfect.
Summary: Had HTC, other windows operating smart phones. Got rid of them! All lasted less than a year. Bought two of these new from Sprint 2 years ago. I absolutely love it. I believe Jack Bower (24) used the exact same phone in season six! My wife and I direct connect all the time. Check this out. My company, who issues the Motorola Android on the Sprint network for a company phone, when they cannot get to me, they call my personal phone to get through!
Summary: Thank you. Item was delivered very quickley, super good shape, works awesome. My grandfather needed a new phone but just a simple, durable one and he loves it. Will definately order again and would recommend to anyone. Awesome, quick, reliable.
Summary: Sanyo made a mistake with the Tahoe, the replacement for this phone. The antenna is badly positioned, the side keys still let you pocket-dial (even with the lock on), and there is no directory access from the closed position. All of these were handled with aplomb by the PRO-700, and believe me, I have one I ordered from Amazon on stand-by if the Tahoe continues to misbehave. See Sanyo - it was better without the camera!!
Summary: This phone isn't fancy. It's a dumb phone, not a smart phone. It makes clear phone calls, has an exceptionally long battery life, and is built like a tank. (My phone takes a lot of abuse.) Overall, a great value for the money since I bought it used.
Summary: personal phone broke and needed a replacement. This was a good quality phone that would work nicely as a replacement and the mil spec was a great addition that will make sure i don't break it. I like the fact that it is a rugged milspec phone. But i do wish it had a camera. I could have found one that did but this will work fine. This product will work just fine in comparison to others that are of the same type.
Summary: We have used this Sanyo model for a couple of years+ and have found them to be quite reliable and durable. They have all of the basic features we need: Calling, texting, & direct connecting. The only shortcoming is the battery life on our high usage days. A larger capacity battery would help to alleviate the problem. dn.
