Excerpt: I am a klutz. There are no ifs, ands or buts about it. My last two phones have gone through the gauntlet of cell phone useage. They have been: 1) dropped in a lake (repeatedly), dashed onto the ground from 20+ feet up, sat on, tossed from person to person and dropped, etc. They all died. This one has survived me for the last year and shows no sign of wear. The rubberized sides help you keep a good grip on it while the locking back of the phone helps protect the...
Excerpt: This is my work phone. It does what I need it to, which usually just means making phone calls. I like the large screen and the Bluetooth has come in hand a couple of times. I would like to have a camera, but I guess you have to give something up to get a phone this durable. It is covered in rubber and has taken a couple of falls from waist level. It seems like it will last the two years until I qualify for a new one.
looking for a simple but reliable, durable, dependable phone... Sanyo 7050
1 June 2011
Summary: If you are looking for a phone that will last... then this is it I have had this same phone for almost 3yrs now! Iv been through many phones before I found this one. A new phone every 6months just does not cut it for me I just can't afford it. I am a drywaller so I need something that can tolerate the dust! And is durable and shock resistant. My phone is definitely showing its age but it still functions fine.
Good phone without all of the extras. Basic easy to use
3 March 2010
Summary: this is a good phone to have if you do not care about all the extra stuff and mainly just want to call and text people. it is not very good for using the web or browsing. overall good phone though.
Summary: This phone is excellent for professionals working in a dirty/harsh/hostile environment. I own an auto repair shop, so I am rough on a phone. Rubber shock pads ensure survival if dropped, even from moderate heights. This phone is not as waterproof as some others, such as the samsung 2100, but its resistance to moisture is superior to most; I used to be able to take my RL-4930 in the shower. This one balks a bit, but a dryout session restored the phone to working order.
Excerpt: Very durable ,but not technically sound.3 different phones, 2 had problems with the flip opening disconnecting calls and shutting off the phone ,1 had the flip problems with excessive pop up displays to which sprint tech support had no resolution.
