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. The PTT Nextel feature works very well between phones and I am able to talk to people on the Nextel network. the DC (Direct Connect) is convienent and easy.
Battery life on a single charge will carry you through heavy useage all day long without recharging, about 5 1/2 hours, even on the bluetooth. The speaker phone is superior of any smart phone out there and right in line with the Nextel's phone. Driving while talking is a hefty fine in my state. Putting on speaker and leaving the phone in my lap, I can carry on a coversation with my caller with no problems. Specs boast military grade ruggedness. The outer shell is incased in harden rubber. I have dropped the phone several times. Would be the end of any PDA, my phone has gone unscathered. With the ringer volume all the way up, it will wake up your next door neighbor. I have no more missed calls because I can't hear the phone ring in the other room. The menu buttons are easy. You can program favorite menu keys for quick and easy access. Texting is somewhat more difficult, of course, then a PDA with a keyboard. It has T9 function so that it will spell out the word with fewer keystrokes.
You cannot download your favorite ring tone from your computer like PDA and the selection is limited. You can purchase ring tones from Sprint (of course) but if you in the market for this this type of phone, I can't see this being a failure. The DC function is intermitting sometimes and this is the result of the Nextel IDEN format. However, since I do not reside in a major city, I am overall please with my service. It does not have a camera. Some will say this is bad but personally, I couldn't care less.
This phone satisfies a consumer that wants a phone that works! Durable, reliable, and the best of both worlds having a DC from Nextel and a regular Sprint phone. Sprint has always been great to me and the customer service has improved 200%. If you don't care about media and emailing (the phone does has these features) as much as recieving and making calls, this phone is for you.
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. i have service with it when others with other services dont. i have service in places the other phone didnt. i wondered if my connection was better with the phone because of the service or the phone and now i know it is the 700. great battery life. i do pest control and work a country area. i depend on getting my calls and not depending on voice mail and having to return calls later. the only knock i have is personal .....fat fingers and small keys. great phone will buy another. but i drop it all the time and it just dont break!
One look at this phone and you see something that is well made. Big,bright external display and very nice internal display. This is not a Nextel phone, but a Sprint phone with ability to connect to the Nextel network. You must be in Sprint's high speed network for the Direct Connect to work. The battery life is good, the audio quality on the speaker phone is great but on the ear piece it is poor and gets worse when the signal is weak. Reception is average.
The phone feels fairly sturdy and possibly resistant to many environmental hazards (I really don't know, didn't come with a manual), but it looks and has the texture of rubber wrapped plastic leaning on the lightweight cheap end. It certainly lacks the sleek thin elements of a most contemporary flip phones and has a very plastic "this could be my four year old's play phone" button interface and screen size. Very much a basic phone with no bells and whistles like a camera or MP3, but it has some modest features like Bluetooth, Sprint's GPS Navigator and simple web access. All in all it's a cheap(price) phone that I suspect will take some abuse and still work for some time to come.
I have suffered from Smartphonanecrosy with my Samsung ACE for the last year and a half. Because I am stuck in a two year contract, the only way to change was pay full price for a phone. I was mad at my phone and mad at my provider. I now know the ACE has one of the lowest customer ratings of all Sprint phones. Years ago, my husband gave me a Palm PDA which I really like and which still works handily. So, I thought I would give this Palm Treo a try, especially since it has a bit of an external antenea as connectivity at home is a problem with the ACE and other phones I have tried. Finally, cured. It works like a charm, has the Windows OS, is so intuititive. It does what I want, not what it wants. Needs very little charging, has a very powerful battery and signal, auto shut-off and easy turn-on so that you can talk, throw it in your purse, and easily answer again. The only negative is that the camera is 1.3mg and the pictures are not good at all, BUT, hey, this phone is five years old and used. Want good photos, get a camera.
