"Excellent phone"on by proteus_ed
Pros These phones were before their time. I first had the 4000 back in '99 and was able to check my Hotmail before most could
Cons The speaker phone is incredible. It's very durable. Large keys.
Summary In retrospect, it may be difficult to appreciate a phone like this. When it was released, it was quite a good phone.
Pros Battery life is spectacular, Reception while those around you are roaming for even a connection, Sturdy and well built. It truely takes a beating,
Cons Outgoing history could be larger but is more than bearable.
Summary I can't say enough for this phone. We've had two of these for five plus years and would not think of exchanging them for the problem laden flip phones out there right now. No flip phone, no matter the cost will match this phone for reliability, battery life and/or reception. I've been with associates that carry $400.00 phones and they are amazed that the Sanyo SCP-4700 will connect while theirs will not. It's too bad for you that this phone is not in stock but if you can find one I would strongly recommend it if you want a superior phone. It doesn’t have a camera as if it matters. The many other options that flip phones cannot pack far out weigh the need for a camera. It isn't out of stock or discontinued because of its faults in my opinion, but rather that it was too reliable and sturdy.
Pros Not for girls
Cons Meant for real men.
Summary You pencil neck geek fairy hands might like the smaller phones, but real men are used to hanging on to something big.
"Just a good GOOD Phone if you are looking for reliability over flash (bling-bling)"on by KevinHenshaw
Pros Solid, Reliable, Strong, Great Reception, Loud Ring & Speaker Phone, Awesome Battery Life. I have o
Cons No color screen & No Camera…… Just a good GOOD Phone if you are looking for reliability over flash (bling-bling)
Summary I don’t know what else to say other than this is the best Phone I have owned. Buy it and you won’t be sorry! I recently pulled it out of storage to use because I new cell phone that is a piece of junk and unreliable, broke. So I called sprint and had them reactivate the SPC 4700. It is nice to have it working again.
Pros Battery life was *unreal.* Excellent user interface.
Cons I found no negative features on this phone.
Summary This is my ode to the best phone I every owned. There's nothing like owning something you're proud of...even a cell phone. 1)This phone's battery *wouldn't die* it lasted days on end. 2)The phone was sturdy...dropped it a thousand times...never skipped a beat. 3)Excellent user interface: quick access to recently dialed and received numbers 4)A curious "pro" for this phone was its internet access, which is to speak well of the Sprint text-based internet debut. It was a phenomenally efficient tool for getting quick data: weather, dictionary, movie times, yellow pages, and even a google search. I learned my way around it in no time, as opposed to late model phones that are in color with pictures. My experience with these phones has shown them to be poor tools and slow processing. It was a great phone, I hope that someday I can take as much pride in a phone. RIP Sanyo SCP-4700.
