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: 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: 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.
Summary: I love this phone. I know it's a bit out of date but I love the features the phone offers. This is actually a replacement for the same model phone I previously owed and dropped into my cup of coffee. Fastlane Wireless, the ebay store I purchased the phone from, is awesome. I think they rate their items at a lower quality than they actually turn out to be. That made for a great suprise when my phone rated as fair had almost no signs of use on it at all!
Summary: This phone is great! It's thin, lightweight and the most durable phone I have found for less than $200. I find the OS on it to be simple and to the point, it organizes voicemail and texts very well, and has all the great little features that so many other phones don't; stopwatch, alarms, and customizable ringtones. I bought this phone for the first time almost 4 years ago, it still worked perfectly when I replaced it with my new one.
Summary: After going through the evolution of cell phone technology from the 80's, audiovox car phone with send and end button, to the latest of PDA's that lasted me roughtly 1 year before it breaks, I decided to forgo facebook and texting to digress to the simpliest phone that will last. I have found this with the Sanyo PRO 700. I purchases 2 Sanyo Pro 700 phones that are on the Sprint network six months ago and I cannot be happier.
Summary: I recently bought this phone(Sanyo Pro 700) for my fiance, his job is extremely rough on phones. He has went through 3 phones in the last month,the type that slide and are not made of great material. I seen that it was rugged. Very excellent phone. A lot of great features. It is made of great material. I highly recommend this phone to people whose line of work consist of doing rough jobs, a mechanic, or someone in the military. It is very durable.
Summary: I bought this as a replacement to my existing Sanyo PRO-700. This is a great phone, light, compact and is not stuck on a charger: I can go days without charging the battery. I am not a power user (EX: hit the web, text or Direct Connect) The phone comes with nice basics and I have programmed them on the D-Pad for quick access: Calculator, Calender, Alarm Clock and missed calls. Unfortunately, I do not know any one else with direct connect.
