    As I posted in another thread, I am considering ordering the
    discontinued Sanyo 4700 from a monthly-prepay company that uses the
    SPCS network and apparently still has a supply of brand-new 4700's and
    4900's (Some other prepaid companies offer them, but
    manufacturer-refurbished.). The 4700 was NOT one of the phones listed
    as internet-capable on their site. (The G3-data-services based Sanyo
    4900 *was* listed, but that was a lot pricier, and even though I would
    like web access for occasional use, voice is my top priority.)

    Is there anyone who is still successfully using the Wireless Web on
    the 4700, or at least knows for sure whether it is still actually
    possible? If so, is it extremely slow, especially compared to the
    4900 or any other Vision-enabled phones you may have used?

    Thanks in advance, and thanks also to Robert for his helpful response
    the my other post about the 4700 vs. the 4900.

    Yes, it is possible to connect the 4700 to the WW. It's 14.4K, the same
    speed as the old dial ups and fax machines.

    Don't know a clue about this other service you will be going on, but you
    better see whether they authorize WW use, and if they do, how it's going to
    be billed out.
