Bill in Texas BEST PHONE EVER

I brought this phone back when it first became available and I loved it then. I went to a differant phone after dropping this one in the lake. I have had two other phones since and I have just purchased the 4900 again. Unless you need GPS this phone has just about all the features you could ever want. I have missed the voice services and the long battery life that this phone provides. If there was one thing I could change about this phone it would only be the font size. I would love to see it with a really really large font availability. Other than that this is an exceptional phone. Less

Best phone I have ever used

This phone is simply amazing. For lazy people like me, the fact that the battery lasts 3-4 days (with my calling habits) without needing a recharge is great.

This phone is simply amazing. For lazy people like me, the fact that the battery lasts 3-4 days (with my calling habits) without needing a recharge is great. Also, the speaker phone is very clear and eliminates most background noise. It is packed with features like a calendar, alarm, calculator, etc. And they are all easy to navigate to and use. The most impressive things about this phone, aside from the battery life and the features, is it's durability. I have dropped, thrown, and generally abused this phone for the last 2.5 years and it still works great (although it looks a little rough). If you are thinking right now "yeah, but it is so large..." then you do not deserve to have this wonderful phone. Go buy that ridiculous RAZR that you want that matches your new ipod. My next phone will certainly be another sanyo. Less

I love this phone! It is jammed packed with great features like 3-way calling,speaker, memo, web access, calculator,key guard,voice dial ect...I just need a phone not a camcorder or a personel computer. But the thing I hate most is Sprint's service. I have people call me while I am sitting right next to my phone and it dosen't ring. I get voice mail several hours later. My friends who have other carriers are all talking on there phones while in rual areas and I have no service. I took my phone into a Sprint store and they said that it needed a "Software Update" 45 min later and I still have the same problems and I will never get a two year contract with any carrier. Things change too much in that time. I love this phone, I hate Sprint. I think I will go with Cingular next month when my Sprint contract runs out. Less

Sanyo 4900

This phone is very good quality with long battery life on both talk and standby times. I have had this phone for about 1 year and have had not problems with it at all. Very well built and web ready with user-friendly applications all around.

Sanyo 4900 - Dependable, Reliable, and Easy to use.

I got 3 of these for my Girlfriend & kids to use. They are really quite a neat little phone, and they work well with the Sprint Network.

The SCP 4900 is a solid phone overall but it may not be for everyone. I have had this phone for close to a year and it has operated flawlessly for me but there is one drawback. The phone is quite large. Very nearly the size of some cordless phones you'd find at home. So, if you haven't seen this phone in person you may want to take the time to check it out. That said the phone has excellent battery life both in standby and talktime. I can't say specfically how long but easily days without concern for a recharge. The speakerphone is hands down the best I've ever used. I have a few other phones as well and this phone's speaker phone is hands down the loudest & clearest, and the mic works great too. Since the phone is large those who dislike phones with keys the size of a grain of rice will enjoy using this phone. Another bonus benefiting from and/or causing the phones rather robust size is that the screen is quite large as well. The screen is bright and clear and has a nice graphical menu to navigate its many options. The graphical menu is quick and navigates very easily. The phone is solidly built as well. I'm a bit of a clutz and have forced this phone to nosedive onto many patios and driveways with force and have not had any cracks or major scratches as a result. Also, none of the button labels have worn off of the phone which occurs on some phones over time. The sound quality and reception is also fantastic. Driving down the highway with the windows down will not hamper a conversation on this phone. One of this phone's strongest perfromance characteristics is how well the mic isolates your voice and how clear the headset is. Also, I have two samsung phones that are pretty decent but this phone consistently catches at least two bars of reception when the samsungs can't find any; all on the Sprint PCS network. Overall, this phone is a fantastic performer but again due to its size I suggest taking a look in person to see if it meets your mobility standards. Less

Best Cell Phones on the Market! This phone Rocks!

I have had about 5 cell phones over the past 7 years. Of all the phones I've had, the Sanyo's have been head and shoulders above the rest. This phone has great features.

I have had about 5 cell phones over the past 7 years. Of all the phones I've had, the Sanyo's have been head and shoulders above the rest. This phone has great features. The speakerphone is very clear. The Voice Recorder in the phone comes in handy. It doesn't have a camera like some of the newer phones, but the sound quality is great. In addition, the Wireless Web service Sprint offers looks pretty good on this screen. This may be a discontinued phone, but buying one of the used models is still probably worth it. Don't be mislead by the marketing of other big name phones. Sanyo's phones are the best on the market! Less
