Phone Scoop

The 2700 offers Sprint customers an inexpensive option to get their messaging fix while on the go

from Phone Scoop

For what it is, the 2700 covers the basics of messaging and phone functionalities well. Its target customer - pre-teens, Tweens, young teens - will be happy with how easily they can keep in touch with t heir posse via SMS, IM and emails. They'll also appreciate the smaller size of the phone and the relatively good looks. What they may miss, however, is a lack of good social networking services, such as Facebook or MySpace.

People looking for even slightly more advanced features, such as a music player, video capture and 3G web browsing, will be sorely disappointed, as none of t... Full review

regarding this phone design it seems cute and elegant in a way but then as i look at the picture clearly i can tell its from china. there may be phones which are cheaper than other brands of course due to the down of our economy we prefer something that is cheaper than any other, but we need to think of other possibilities like if ever you encountered some problems, how to solve it. As there are big companies who ends up having some of their appliances or products have some defect, now how much more can we relay on new products from a small company. unknown support and very limited details. It's much better to go for some higher price as long as you get a better service and product isn't it? It simply like buying some dress or blouses you go for the cheaper one then dont compare it to expensive product. What you buy is what you get. (",) Less

I bought two of these phones. One for me and one for my 16 year old daughter. I'm 41 years old and hardly used the phone that I have only had for 7 months. I went to use the phone one day and noticed a "blotch" going across he lcd screen. Since the phone was so young I decided to send it in since it should have been covered under the warranty. Mind you this phone was never dropped, mishandled, etc. First, I never got an email from the company telling me whether they received my phone or not. I checked the status and all it did was discribe my phone as being received. I finally, after 7 days of being without a phone, called the company and they informed me that they would not cover the warranty on the phone even thow the damage was on the inside of the phone. This company does not stand behind their product. So, if you get this phone, which really isn't what it's cracked up to be, and something goes wrong with it, you'll end up with no phone. I'd go with an LG or a Samsung. Good companies, good products! Less

Looking Foward to getting one..

I am planning on getting one soon but I had a question regarding the web options. Some say you can go on to Facebook, Myspace but some say you can't. is there an app to download for it or some firmware updates? if anyone can answer this for me , I will appreciate it.

I bought this phone for the QWERTY keyboard and it was fine at first. I got it in August (6 months ago) but I'm already having issues with it. my first problem was that I realized if you need to press a number in relation to a letter (such as dialing a 1-800 number that spells something out) you can't do it on this phone. The letter are the numbers .. the numbers do NOT show the letters. A bit irritating, but I could live with that. Now I've also noticed that the time it takes for this phone to load up a web page (ANY web page) is WAY longer than it should be/used to be. When I first got the phone it would be instant. Now it takes about 30 seconds. When it loads up, about a minute after using it, the phone shuts off and turns back on, but doesn't go back to the internet. It's SO frustrating to deal with. At first I thought it was the area, but noticed that it happened everywhere, and DOESn't happen with my husband's phone. I'm sending the phone back tomorrow for a replacement. I'm grateful for the 1 year warranty. Less

Other reviews said the pink is for teens...I'm 40 and I love pink. I got this phone free with my 2 year renewal contract. I had never had a texting phone. This phone is easy to use. Simple to understand and takes great pics. I love that it auto locks the keys so I can throw it in my purse and not worry about calling anyone by mistake. It also has great standard ringers, nice and loud. Which is a big deal when your getting older and can't hear things as well. All in All I really like this phone and it's for any girl who loves pink. In fact I think more older women should go pink...why should teens have all the fun things. Less

Pro: Exceptional speakerphone capability with little to no distortion at highest volume. Speakerphone volume and clarity bests any model of mobile phone, PDA or smartphone of which I'm aware. Excellent for conversation, good for texting. Con: Materials and design, crowded dialpad has poor contrast in pink colour (I'd recommend the blue with green contrast to highlight the dialpad, though no help with the other keys). Poor for any use except conversing and texting. Using experience: 8 days I recently finished a highway road trip with a convertible, and when a girlfriend produced this phone from her purse, I laughed. First impression was as that of a toy, until hearing the maximum speakerphone volume. Both sides of conversations on speakerphone were quite clear for a mobile phone, even against an open motorcar with road noise. At lowest volume the speakerphone remains very clear in quiet environments. The sound volume and simple design should make this an excellent phone for noisy environments as well as for those with fading hearing, but the dialpad and keypad design would probably severely undermine it for the elderly. The display is adequate for texting and GPS. Less

The REAL Scoop on the Sanyo SCP-2700

Currently options are limited for Sprint users who would like to join the QWERTY crowd but don't want an expensive data plan. As of this writing, your current choices are the Samsung Rant, LG Rumor 2, LG Lotus or the Sanyo SCP-2700. Cool name it has not, but the Sanyo SCP-2700 has been proven to be a very reliable and durable and these factors alone make all the competition pale in comparison. Both the slider QWERTY's, the Rant and Rumor, are prone to issues with the screen and keyboard. Even if you're lucky enough to avoid the widespread issues of screens breaking and keyboards becoming unresponsive, the issue of the keyboard becoming dislodged in a pocket or purse and thus unlocking the keypad is a major annoyance. True, they can both play music, hold an SD card and the Rant has a camcorder, but the track record for the durability of these phones is absolutely awful. It is common to hear of people replacing these phones every few months. I don't think the music player and SD slot are quite worth that headache. As for the Lotus, it has just as many great features as the slider phones, but it has it's own host of issues, the most glaring being that it simply stops working for absolutely no reason at all. My brother has had this phone replaced twice in the 4 months he has owned it and both of my niece and nephew's Rants started having issues almost immediately after purchase. That really leaves us with only one option: The Sanyo SCP-2700. Now, there are some major issues regarding the feature list on this phone. Other websites offering this phone claim it is music enabled. A call to Sprint even verified that the phone is music enabled, but upon bringing it home and reading the manual, it is not music enabled. Another source of confusion is whether or not you can use a Micro USB cable to transfer files to and from this phone. When attempting to purchase the phone from the Sprint website, it actually offers you a Micro USB data cable as an optional accessory. It took 3 calls to Sprint and one call to the tech department to get a definitive answer on both of these issues. This phone is NOT music enabled and does NOT have the capability to transfer files to and from your PC or laptop. If you like custom ringtones, you will have to download them. You aren't able to bluetooth them from another phone either. All of the negative reviews you will find on this phone are directly related to the misinformation that customers receive. They go into it thinking it will have features it does not, and then are rightfully disappointed. Though, in the Sanyo SCP-2700's shining favor, I've yet to come across a single statement about this phone breaking. Also, as of this writing, Sprint seems to have corrected their product page and "music-enabled" no longer appears in the feature list for this phone. Now that I've emphasized the reliability and durability, it's time to talk features! I don't know how I lived without threaded texting before this phone. It makes texting so much easier and you can view entire conversations from over a course of several days or weeks rather than have all your messages from different contacts all jumbled together in one menu. It also has a kind of "call waiting" feature when it comes to texts. On past phones, when sending a text and another text or call comes in, you will lose what you were typing. With this phone, it saves a draft of the message you sent, even if you have several uncompleted messages to different people. It's entirely possible to carry on several text conversations at once with this feature. Text entry itself is very responsive and quick. Some people have stated that the keyboard is too small for their fingers but my husband has large, rough hands and has no trouble texting on this phone. The keys on the keyboard are rubberized and feel nice as you are typing. I also feel that the rubberized effect makes typing easier and more accurate than smooth keys, such as those on the LG Rumor 2, because it doesn't allow your fingers to slip all over the keyboard. Another nice feature is the ability to add a unique tone for each contact when you have an incoming text. Typically you only see this feature for incoming calls and the texts are all required to share the same tone. Now you can differentiate who is texting you with unique ringtones, or even make some incoming texts, such as those from people not in your contact list, completely silent. Clearly, this phone is the queen (or king!) of pure texting. Another favorite feature of mine is the voice & ringer option for incoming calls and texts. When selected, it will read the name or phone number of the incoming call or text. Such as "Incoming call from Bob" or "You have a message from Chris". This is nice for people who want to have custom ringtones so they can identify the caller/texter without having to pay to download them off the internet. It does a pretty good job of pronouncing the names. You can enter a very long name if you'd like, though it will only pronounce the first three words. So, for example, you could have it say "Incoming call from your husband, John." All of this is done via text entry. You just name your contacts and set the ringer to voice & ringer and the phone does the rest. It's an excellent feature, especially for bluetooth users who like to be completely hands free. You can know who is calling without even looking at your phone. Yet another huge bonus on this phone is that it uses the Nuance voice recognition software. For those who aren't familiar, Nuance allows you to talk out loud to make calls and perform other tasks on your phone, such as checking time, checking signal strength, or even opening your calendar, all using your voice. Voice recognition isn't exactly new to the scene, but in the past you had to "train" your phone to recognize your voice, going through one contact at a time and recording your voice so that the phone would recognize you and you alone. With Nuance, there is no training. It can read your voice along with everyone else's. No training required. You can simply say "Call Mom" and it will call. It may ask to verify what you said, to which you just answer yes or no and it will then make the call. If there are several numbers listed for that name, it will ask you which you'd like to call. To bypass this, you can just say "Call Mom Mobile" and it will go straight to your mom's cell phone without asking for you to choose which number you'd like to call. It is amazingly accurate in reading what you say, and you don't have to pronounce it slowly and overly loud to make it understand you. A normal tone of voice and normal pace of speaking works just as well. This feature is simply awesome with Bluetooth. With my Samsung WEP200 (which is perfect, by the way) I can leave my phone in my pocket or even in a central area of my home and have complete control over incoming and outgoing calls with just a single touch of the multi-function button on the headset. I can plug my phone in to charge and still go on with my day and send and receive calls from my phone without being near it. Again, awesome! The battery life on this phone is also fantastic. I can easily go three days without charging the phone. That's primarily with a lot of texting and at least three hours of phone time. Overall, it is a fantastic phone for texting and hands free enthusiasts, young and old. I don't believe for a second that this phone is reserved for teens and tweens as other reviews have suggested. It is plenty sophisticated for the seasoned texter. The only thing it lacks are the more "fluff" features such as an MP3 player and camcorder which is most definitely aimed more at the younger crowd as most of the rest of us already have a dedicated MP3 player and camcorder that will easily outperform them. I may be old-fashioned but I like my phone to be a phone. I want it to be a communication device that I can use on the go. End of story. I don't want to burn up my battery listening to music and find myself unable to make any calls. These are the main features of the Sanyo SCP-2700 that I love and use all the time. It has a lot more to offer though, including a great GPS system, web browser, voice memo (you can record calls as well with this), all your typical organizer tools, polyphonic ringers, and more. Some of the features go hand in hand with the QWERTY keyboard like the email software and access to social networks. The product description goes into full detail of all these features. Overall, this is an excellent phone and is hands down the choice for active texters and hands free users. Pass up the other junk on the market and get this phone that will last long after the others have been recycled. Less

Bought this for my daughter...mostly because it's pink and cute. But realistically,I like it better than my LG Rumor 2 (and on that note I preferred my first LG Rumor (1). This 2700's screen is so clear and visible. For those of us over 45 who want just a nice basic texting phone...it reads easy and types easy. Not saying it's a basic phone...it's not--lots of other features as well. Compared to my LG is so dark and the font on the non-changeable aspects of the phone is so tiny...the touch on this 2700 is nice as well. If I could do over I would have kept my old LG Rumour or taken the blue version of this 2700. Less
