Product Description

The Sanyo Innuendo is an update to the Incognito, it is smaller and lighter, and steps up to a 3-megapixel camera.This CDMA messaging phone includes a sideways-clamshell design with a disappearing display and touch keypad on the front, plus a large display and QWERTY keyboard on the inside. The Innuendo is also equipped with 3G EVDO data, music player, microSD memory card slot, stereo Bluetooth compatibility, and standard audio jack.



Amazon.com

Make a statement with the Sanyo Innuendo for Boost Mobile, which stands out from the crowd with its curvy profile and distinctive blue color. It conceals an external dial pad that glows through the phone's mirrored finish--which then disappears when not in use--and it flips open at its side to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard. It's an excellent value when paired with Boost's $50 Monthly Unlimited plan featuring no hidden fees and no contracts required. And you'll save money the longer you stick with Boost Mobile, with your monthly payments lowered by $5 for every six on-time payments.

In addition to fast 3G speeds, you'll enjoy GPS navigation capabilities for accessing the optional Sprint Navigation turn-by-turn direction service. And this phone comes with Sprint's intuitive Sprint One Click interface, which allows you to customize the phone with the things you use most like, including e-mail, TV, music, GPS navigation, and Web with Google Search.

Other features include a 3.2-megapixel camera/camcorder, microSD memory expansion (with included 1 GB microSD card), Bluetooth for hands-free devices and stereo music streaming, access to both personal and corporate e-mail, threaded text/picture messaging for easy back-and-forth conversations, and up to 4.5 hours of talk time.

Vital Statistics

The Sanyo Innuendo weighs 3.8 ounces and measures 4.1 x 2.2 x 0.6 inches. Its 860 mAh lithium-ion battery is rated at up to 4.5 hours of talk time. It runs on Sprint's 800/1900 CDMA/EV-DO Rev. A frequencies.

Sprint's Award-Winning One Click Interface

This phone features Sprint's One Click navigation interface, which places eight shortcut tiles along the bottom of the home screen. Instead of navigating through endless phone menus, you can put the things you use the most--features like call logs, texting, Web access and GPS navigation--right up front with instant information related to each feature. For example, when you scroll to text messaging, you'll see the number of new messages received and a single click takes take you to the newest messages. Here's how it works:

  • Add your favorite items to the carousel, which is a row of tiles along the bottom of your phone's home screen.
  • The carousel can hold up to 15 tiles, which you can add, remove and rearrange to suit your needs.
  • Highlight a tile to reveal its menu on your home screen.
  • Add up to 8 "bubbles"--at-a-glance items that display on your home screen, like the weather or your daily horoscope.
  • Browse and download new tiles from your phone's "Personalize Home Screen" tile. New tiles are available every two weeks.
  • Press your navigation left or right key to select a tile; up or down to select a bubble or menu item.
  • The "Home" tile always stays put, so you can easily get back to your default display.


About Boost Mobile

Boost Mobile redefines value for wireless consumers with its Monthly Unlimited with Shrinkage no-contract service where the longer you stay the less you pay with on-time payments for unlimited voice, text messaging, web, e-mail, IM and calls to 411. It offers nationwide service on the Nationwide Sprint Network and Nextel National Network, reaching more than 278 million people, with no activation or long-distance fees.

Plans include:

$50 Monthly Unlimited for unlimited nationwide talk, text, web, 411, and e-mail with no contracts. Voicemail, long distance, and call waiting included. And you'll reduce your monthly payment the longer you stay with Shrinkage.

monthly unlimited

$2 Daily Unlimited provides all the value of Monthly Unlimited and nationwide coverage at a low daily rate. The $2 subscription charge is automatically deducted from your Boost account each day after midnight, regardless of usage, unless the you cancel the subscription. Recharge at least once every 90 days to keep your account active (after 90 days any credit balance will expire).

Daily Unlimited

Pay As You Go gives the freedom to pay by the minute. All nationwide calls and texts are one convenient rate of 20¢ per minute or 20¢ per text message. You can also add other services such as Internet access (50¢ per day with unlimited usage) and e-mail (99¢ per day with unlimited usage).

Shrinkage
Boost lowers your monthly payment by $5 for every 6 on-time payments ($50 Monthly Unlimited example illustrated above).

International Connect provides unlimited international talk and text with family and friends around the world. It can be added to Monthly Unlimited and Android Monthly Unlimited plans for an additional $5 per month, and added to the BlackBerry Monthly Unlimited plan for $10 per month.

Boost Shrinkage

All Monthly Unlimited plans include Shrinkage and unlimited nationwide talk, text, web, e-mail, and 411. Shrinkage reduces your payment by $5/month for every six on-time payments, up to $15/month in total. Monthly Unlimited shrinks to as low as $35/month, Android Monthly Unlimited to as low as $40/month, or $45/month for BlackBerry Monthly Unlimited.

On-Time Payments

On-time payments are made on or before the monthly payment date. Your monthly payment date remains the same every month as long as you successfully make your monthly payment. However, if you make a late payment, your payment date will be reset to the day of the month before the date your service is restored (e.g., if your service is restored on February 15th, your monthly payment date will be reset to March 14th).

Missed Payment

While it's best to make regular on-time payments each month, payments do not have to be consecutive. If you miss a payment you don't have to start over. The on-time payments made to the account will still be available as well as any savings milestone achieved.

Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA), also known as CMAS, is a part of a national alerting system called IPAWS (Integrated Public Alert and Warning System) that enables emergency management officials to rapidly disseminate the warnings and safety information via text alerts to wireless phones based on the phones’ geographic location. The Federal Emergency Management Agency or FEMA is responsible for receiving the alerting information and forwarding the alerts to participating wireless carriers such as Sprint. Such alerts may come from the President of the United States; the National Weather Service, state or county public safety officials. This system is integrated into the same national alerting services that serve television and radio today.

Customer Reviews

The qwerty keyboard has a good feel for texting.

I didn't even bother to do that...I've had enough of trying to get crap like that to work with my last 3 phones.
Antero Colon
The front touch screen presses buttons while you are on the phone talking to people.

Ok, I am 50. I wear reading glasses. I want to check my email, want to look up a street address or phone number while out running errands, I may check the weather while I am out, may check the stock market...but I don't want a TOUCH phone. I don't want a SMART phone. I don't WANT APPS! I save most of my work for when I am on my home computer. My phone is not attached to my hip! And I don't have time to play mindless pointless games!

But I--like most incredibly busy moms--do text like crazy. Don't call me, is my motto, text me. So I do want to be able to see the letters without using a magnifying glass. I do want a keypad where all the letters are NOT scrunched up right next to one another. NO I don't want a Jitter Bug. I am not 80. yes I want a decent phone and video camera. My kids are teens. I don't want to miss those moments when we don't have our camera with us.

I am amazed at how few phones are out there for people who aren't interested in all this other stuff.I am a Sprint customer and when I decided to try once again to find a phone that better suited my needs I was extremely disappointed that I had a choice of 2. Whoopee. I had considered the Innuendo last time but the reviews were so poor I just went right over it.

This time I dug into the reviews a little and realized, OMgosh...these bad reviews are written by people who want the Smart everything under the sun phones. Once again I find that what I want is the opposite of what everyone else wants.

I ordered. I got. I love this Innuendo.

When I have more time I will sign back in and tell you why.

For now, I just have to ask the phone companies, with the aging population statistics as they are--which is telling all of us that the over 50 market is about to expand dramatically, why aren't you designing goods and services for us!?

My friend has recently purchased this phone after I told him how great boost mobile was (at least in my area). He got this exact model phone for a little bit more than what I'm seeing it on Amazon for but the quality of this phone blew me away. The first time he called me I thought he was calling me from his house phone because of how unbelievably clear it was. Yes, at first I thought even though it was an expensive phone there is no way it could have quality equivalent to a phone available to sprint, version, or any of the other more popular cell phone companies customers. I was wrong, very very wrong, the phone was just as good as any other provided by the pre mentioned phone companies.

I started to use the phone, and the FIRST thing I noticed was how accurate the touch screen on the front of the phone was. The buttons on the inside of the phone also felt amazingly comfortable.

For the people complaining about it smudging...what do you expect? Don't complain about trivial things and write bad reviews about good products because you're too lazy to clean you're phone up. A lot of people think that cell phones should be able to survive being tossed across a room, hit a wall, fall into a toilet and still function.

Overall it's a great phone, if you're expecting it to replace your smartphone then yes, you'll be disappointed. It is what it is, a good sound quality, flip phone with a text keyboard with a good facebook app. If you were looking for more, then why did you go to boost? Boost is for those who can't afford (or don't need) a phone with millions of apps and a better (while still terrible) camera. If you're mad because your Boost phone isn't the next ground breaking thing in your life, you probably shouldn't own a phone...or be driving... *coughs*

After doing some exhausting research and evaluations of the many cell phones and wireless prepaid providers out there, and there are scores of them, I just happened to see this phone amongst the many featured on Boost Mobile's website!!

Since I had already made up my mind that I was leaving MetroPCS anyway, I also looked into other options for a reliable prepaid cell phone service provider. So I decided to go with Boost Mobile, and the phone that I decided to get was the Sanyo Innuendo, an updated and revised version of the Sanyo Incognito.

This phone is just loaded with the very latest in ultra-modern conveniences!! So, it's not a smart or android phone, but you'd almost think it is because of the many features that it has!! Android and smart phones have features jacked up to the moon, but all those features can also astronomically rob the phones of their memory, which in turn, can also eat up battery power almost in record time, causing you to have to recharge the battery far too often - more often then you'd probably want to!!

The Sanyo Innuendo is a 3G phone, and it is more kinder to the battery, making it the ideal phone for holding more battery power, so that you don't have to recharge it as often. It gets at least about 1-1/2 days of use before the battery has to be recharged again.

Ok, on to the features. It has;

3G format.

3.2 megapixal camera / camcorder.

Full internal qwerty keyboard. Unit flips open to reveal keyboard, screen and other features.

External 10-key front touch screen for dialing phone numbers as well as to view contacts, activity history, etc..

After about 8 seconds, touch screen display will disappear and go into the Screen Saver mode.
