The Sanyo SCP-2700 is a basic phone equipped with a full Qwerty keyboard. The keyboard is rather tiny thus making this phone ideal for women, young women in particular. I even found myself having to backspace a lot in the beginning. The longer I used the phone I began to get used to the tiny keys and using the tip of my finger. Practice does make perfect!

Texting on this phone is very easy thanks to the dedicated text key. You have one touch access to texting. You press that then either choose someone in your contacts or select “New Address” and enter either that person’s phone number or email address. Now you are ready to text away! There is even a dedicated emotion key so you can let the smileys do the talking! The text messages are threaded so you can see the full conversation for each contact. Which should eliminate the chances of sending someone the wrong text message!

The email feature is very cool and also very easy to use. You can check both personal and corporate email. From AOL, AIM, Yahoo, Gmail and Hotmail, it is all there at your fingertips.

This phone does feature a camera (1.3 megapixels). While using the camera, I recommended that get close to your object and have great lighting for it to come out. Being close and having great lighting makes a great shot!

Overall, I think this is a very sleek and stylish phone. Something someone that wants a cute, basic phone with good call quality and a full Qwerty keyboard would love. Plus at $29.99 with a 2 year Sprint contract, you can’t go wrong!
