I"ve had this phone for a year now, and its a great entry level phone. The screen is small, but bright and clear. The phone is a rock, and the speaker is loud, but does sometimes seem to cut off the voice of the person a little bit. Everything else is good, like the reception, and the features. It doesnt have super phone features but thats okay if your not very tech savvy, or just a talker, and/or txtr.Design 5/10Features 2/10Sound Quality 5/10Signal Strength 7/10Value for money 7/10

Good reception, good sound quality. Dont know bout you guys, but I can get web and download ringtones,screensavers etc The downloads have to be purchased thru sprints website unless you get a data cable and the software for your pc. This will cost about 30 bucks.
I paid 4 bucks and downloaded 5 custom wallpapers/screensavers from sprint.
Another good feature...with pcs vision plans you can watch tv on your phone and get unlimited web access.
Overall...this is a great phone. Camera phones always have low quality pictures and are usually much more expensive w/lower quality reception/sound. Mp3 phones might be nice...but for the price of the 2400 you could take the extra money you would have spent on the mp3 phone and buy a REAL mp3 player LOL :PDesign 6/10Features 6/10Sound Quality 8/10Signal Strength 8/10Value for money 9/10

It's a phone... that's about it.
I love this phone. I've had it for about a year and it's been great, even after a number of drops and scrapes. My favorite thing about it is that it's just a phone. That's it... no camera, no pictures, no music ringers, just a phone. It replaced my 5 year old Motorola Startac and while it's not quite as solid it gets the job done. Text messaging is helpful. The included calendar is pretty weak, but that's why I use Google Calendar with SMS notifications.Design 10/10Features 6/10Sound Quality 8/10Signal Strength 8/10Value for money 10/10

its pretty good
if ur looking 4 something thats basic and well built this is the phone for you. it comes in pink which i love and its cute in my opinion...anyways its so sturdy it has survived so many drops and still works!!! it may not b flashy but guess who gets reception and has never dropped a call? for 10 bucks its worth itDesign 8/10Features 6/10Sound Quality 8/10Signal Strength 9/10Value for money 6/10

Ok, so the SPC-200 isn't a 4000, and that's okay I guess. For the price It's pretty good, with all around decent reception, and it has text-messaging, and it's really good at letting you call people, which is important to me. If there is one thing that would, and does, drive this phone into the dust, it's the ring tones. Here's a list of "Titles" ; Ska Big Band, Techno beat, Relaxing Melody(which ironically is really upbeat and annoying), Asian melody, Nocturne(some mix between techno and your gameboy). Oh, and if you ever set your ring tone to "tone 6", you will seriously begin thinking about nuking egypt within the second call. Overall, good.Design 8/10Features 4/10Sound Quality 9/10Signal Strength 8/10Value for money 8/10

i got this phone as a gift. at first i LOVED it. after about two weeks, i got tired of just making calls and tried to see what other things it could do.....ummm not so good.
great reception, speaker is loud and clear (sometimes), great battery life
if you change the face plates then after about a month the earpiece WILL die out, no internet access, cant download ringers/wallpaper, design isnt all that.
this phone is ONLY for people who only make calls. this is as basic as you can get.Design 6/10Features 5/10Sound Quality 9/10Signal Strength 9/10Value for money 6/10

I like my phone okay (I got the pink one) but I don't like the ringtones. I don't think it can receive pics either. But, I think for the whole $10 I paid for it, it was worth it. You get what you pay for and if you want something better you have to pay more.Design 8/10Features 4/10Sound Quality 8/10Signal Strength 10/10Value for money 10/10

The Sanyo scp-200
The sanyo scp-200 has bad features,because it has no web, you can't use recordings as ringtones,the ringtones are retarded, and you can't download ringtones.Design 7/10Features 2/10Sound Quality 8/10Signal Strength 8/10Value for money 4/10

It's Not A Laptop
This is a cell phone, guys.. C E L L P H O N E ..
It is not, repeat not, a laptop, gameboy, portable dvd player or android secretary.. I got this El Cheapo
on the recommendation of the local SPRINT factory store---three of their sales reps said it worked better than the more expensive phones, based on their
experience plus what the customers were telling them..
I've had it several weeks, and it gets 4 bars and clear transmission/reception where before I only got 1 or 2 bars and lousy service.. It works really well,
and that's all I'm interested in.Design 6/10Features 6/10Sound Quality 9/10Signal Strength 9/10Value for money 8/10

I just got the Sanyo SCP-200 yesterday and I love the color (I got the pink one) but I was told I could download ringtones and I can't. The phone has great reception. Speakerphone- AWESOME! Honestly, the only thing about this phone that I don't like is that the battery seems to go really fast. Great basic phone! I don't play games so not being able to do that was ok by meDesign 9/10Features 5/10Sound Quality 8/10Signal Strength 6/10Value for money 9/10

This phone blows!
I got this phone because it was offered for a good price. I later learned that it has absolutely no features for the tech-savvy individual...No games, no ringtone downloads (downloads, period!), nothing fun. On the other hand, its calculator and calendar is comes in handy sometimes...but that's it. Overall, it sucks!Design 7/10Features 2/10Sound Quality 9/10Signal Strength 6/10Value for money 6/10

I Hate This Phone
This phone is full of shit because it does not have games or downloads.The menu only has 5 choices and when you open the phone it snaps.This would be great for a young child like of the ages for 10-12.Sprint PCS is the only carrier who has this phone.Design 6/10Features 6/10Sound Quality 6/10Signal Strength 6/10Value for money 6/10

Much more was expected
I'm happy that the SCP200 comes in pink but it's pathetic that you can't download ringtones or games!The tones the phone comes with suck. And the dealer that I bought the phone from lied to me and told me that I could download ringers and games. What a rip off!!! Now it's too late to change that because I signed a contract. Who makes a cell phone these days that doesn't have games or the option to download your own ringtones?? That is so amazingly cheap and I expected much more out of the phone simply because it was made by Sprint and USUALLY their products are on point and one step ahead of the competition. Disgust is an understatement with how i feel about this model.Design 9/10Features 3/10Sound Quality 7/10Signal Strength 9/10Value for money 4/10

Manufacturer held out
Good looking phone. Got it mainly for the speakerphone feature, but if I had an idea of how poor the earpiece quality was, I would have never bought it.
Pros: Voice and one touch dialing, Speakerphone, looks good, excellent reception.
Cons: Terrible earpiece quality - sounds muffled, cannot download ringtones, no games. Would it have taken so much to add a game or two and downloadable ringtones???Design 8/10Features 6/10Sound Quality 4/10Signal Strength 6/10Value for money 6/10
