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: 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: 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.
Summary: If you're like me and don't need a camera or the internet on your phone, and you happen to get out in the woods or the mountains from time to time, this is a great phone. I've had it for 2 years now, and I've only just begun having problems - and that has a lot to do with the abuse it has taken in stride. I managed to crack the front screen recently, but with an impact that probably would have shattered other phones.
Summary: basic phone had one that i lost in a car wreck. bought a replacement samsung because the 700 was not available. not a bad phone but the 700 had much better connectivity. the 700 has no camera or any other extra feature except it does have a dual antenna. this antenna is for the nextel direct connect, so you can have sprint phone service and nextel direct connect. but that was not my reason for buying the 700 i simply want get phone service in a rugged phone.
Summary: This phone is very practical, the battery life is great it last about 48 hours without being charged. The features are very up to date, I had a 4g android phone prior to this one, and the battery lasted no more than 5 hours a day. This phone is small and very reliable, the camera resolution is great and I wouldnt change it for the world. I strongly recommend it.
