Excerpt: I bought this phone back in 2005 and the battery went out last night for the first time. I love this phone and I refuse to update it for anything. I dislike flip phone and cam phones, but this does the job. I've had the same phone for almost four years which is pretty impressive. I went to Sprint and they said it was the battery so then I went to daydeal.com and for $14.99 w/ free shipping& handling I will soon be nack in business.
Excerpt: This phone is in a word, PERFECT! It does exactly what it was designed to do. Its simple and easy to use, yet very functional and ergonomic. The rubber provides not only protection when dropped, but a nice comfortable grip that feels natural in your hand. It does not have a glossy, shiny, paint job over the plastic, but this can be a pro since this keeps scratches a little more hidden.
Excerpt: The 4930 replaces a RL4920 and MM 7400. The MM 7400 was abandoned due to poor battery life. The RL 4920 had good battery life but creaked because the battery did not sit tightly in the handset.
So far the 4930 is able to get a signal in places that the other two phones did not work. (I live in an area in LA that has enough hills to make signal reception tough.) The sound is clear even under these conditions.
Excerpt: I like everything about this phone except the switch on the side. It is much too easy to push, and it is difficult to pick up the phone without pressing it. When pushed, it activates the record feature.
I suggest a software update with an option to disable the switch.
Excerpt: Great phone. I have had it a week and have only charged it on first night all night and it still shows full battery. I don't talk all that much, maybe 10 calls per day and a few text message alerts from servers, but still that is pretty amazing.
Great Battery Life
Great Reception(one of the only sprint phones I could find with Analog anymore which is still necessary in parts of rural NC I work in)
Very durable feeling, we will see how it holds up.
Excerpt: small buttons, rubber sides come unglued looking tacky, small screen, not many apps work with this phone, Voice Recorder button/Ready Link button a constant issue.
Great battery life
Not as good as reception as te previous model. There was need for this phone ever to be made.
Excerpt: anyone looking for a reliable phone, this is one to keep in mind. i've had this phone for about a year now and i can't complain. no bells and whistles, but it does what it was made to do, and does it well. it's solid, sturdy, has an easy grip, and buttons are easily accessible. the great reception and long battery life make this phone great for the long haul. works great with a headset/earpiece for hands-free use.
Excerpt: This was my first phone.
Great Speaker phone
Great sound quality
Music ring tones
Screen breaks pretty easy (I went through two of these because of screens)
Can't vibrate and have on level 2/3 of volume
Not great for texting
Keys are kind of spaced
A great phone with a few small problems, not to bad.
