The 7000 is essentially a ruggedized version of the 2400 that also includes user changeable faceplates. Both phones are entry-level and concentrate on the basics. Sprint also launched another Sayno handset today, the M1. It's a high-end music phone.

  • Dura-Grip anti-slip coating on outside of handset
  • Push-to-talk (ReadyLink)
  • Speakerphone
  • 128×160 pixel screen with 65k colors
  • Optional parental controls

Sprint is selling the SCP-7000 for $29.99 with a new 2-year contract and $150 in instant savings. The SCP-2400 is still available and is now being priced at $19.99.
