Question about Sanyo SCP-7300 / RL-7300 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Problem when I open the phone, please help!

I have a Sprint, Sanyo phone.  I am not 100% sure which type of phone it is but under the battery it says Model No. SCP-2400.  Anyways, I didn't do anything in particular when it broke, it started to vibrate (I was getting a call) and when I opened it the screen was still glowed but there was no picture.  I can still see the time and stuff of the phone is closed on the little display screen on the cover but when I open it up it just glows.  I can still receive calls and even make them if I know the number but cannot see the numbers.  Also the little light underneath the display on the cover was orange, I had never seen it glow orange yet it was like that constantly for over and hour and now it is constantly red.  So my question is three-fold

1) What is wrong, and can it be fixed?

2)Is there a way to take the Key Guard off (without being able to see the buttons and menu screen)--I ask this in hopes of being able to scroll through my numbers from the display screen on the cover and writing them all down

3)What are the chances that I can get my numbers back when I have a new phone

Thank you so much

Okay I work for Sprint as a advanced technical support. Your screen is busted I can tell that when you said it was orange. The LCD is non existent and the colors have mixed. I hope for your sake that you have insurance because it is time to get a new phone. and yes when it is closed the sub screen works fine because it is two separate screens and your main screen is the one busted. It is hard to say if you will be able to get your contacts back because in most cases I have seen that information is lost. So it is time to take it to a Sprint Nextel and Repair center. Hope that helps :)

Sprint told me to remove the SIM card from a Sanyo Pro that has each contact showing up twice. I can't find the SIM card.

The Sanyo PRO-700 is like all Sprint phones and uses the CMDA network so no Sim card is used. You can take the phone to the Sprint store and have the clerk's use the transfer machine and that should delete the duplicate entries.

Can I unlock my sprint phone to work for verizon

it is very unlikely but it depends on the type of phone. I have a Sprint phone and the same model phone is mechanically different from verizon's phone although the outside looks the same. I would suggest aasking Verizon but I assume that they would tell you no, even IF it were possible just to get you to buy one of their phones. Try going to and search for "unlock" under the services tab Hope this helps..good luck!

Hey! I just got the PRO 700. IT DOES NOT USE SIM CARDS! instead like the other sprint phones it uses the ESN/MEID number on the back. Just call sprint and tell them you want to do an ESN SWAP or SWITCH TO A NEW PHONE and they will ask you for the number under the battery. They will also walk you through activating everything including Direct Connect. It is as fast as Nextel traditional Direct Connect but it has a MUCH LARGER COVERAGE AREA FOR VOICE AND DIRECT CONNECT. Soon these phones will take control and the whole IDEN network Nextel uses will be converted to CDMA (sprints High Speed Network).

If you make a call and you put it on speaker and it does not work your speaker is out and you will need to take it to a sprint services center to have them replace the speaker or phone.
