Summary: My husband loves this phone since 3-4 years he has the same one over and over again because it's very hard to break God knows he is always letting it fall and I have the latest phone and I don't have reception in our basement he has reception everywhere in elevators even in the subs in NYC but it's...
Summary: I have had this phone since it was new, over 6 yrs! Its been in a drawer for the last few years and I have used it for a phone book. Can't believe the battery still holds a charge for days! This has been a great phone and its clear to talk and very rarely did I get a call dropped on it.
Summary: It fits nice in a shirt-pocket and is easily retrievable as it doesn't fall sideways into the bottom of the pocket like flip phones, and then one must struggle to retrieve them, right them, and then flip open in order to answer.
Summary: This phone is a great buy! I previously had this model and after several years of abuse, my son dunked it in apple juice and killed it. So I purchased a new top o the line nokia on the recommendation of the salesperson, of course. Well, that junky phone didn't last a year.
Excerpt: [This is probably a moot point as this phone and the series is outdated] I've owned this phone's predecessor, the 4500, for at least two years, probably more. It is a basic phone that has been bomb-proof. I got it with Sprint and I seem to get good reception and good battery life.
Excerpt: We just upgraded to vision phones from the Sanyo 4700. Had them for about a year and a half - never had any problems whatsoever. Sanyo did a wonderful job with this one. The ringer is quite loud and able to be heard in the noisiest of environments.
Excerpt: I just recently came to own this phone after signing on to a family plan with two other members of my family. I had bought it to eventually replace my father's 4700 if anything happened to it (due to the fact that he really liked the phone).
Excerpt: While this phone is rather bulky, it has lots of great options. My favorites are the Voice Ringer and the Environment settings. I think the text entry on certain Wireless Web sites could be more user friendly, but it does have great reception and great sound quality.
