Great basic phone, but Sprint no longer supports it.
23 December 2013
Summary: I had this phone for a few years before moving on to a more text friendly phone. It was a great basic phone, very light and thin yet sturdy. I put a screen protector on mine and the screen still looks amazing while the body took a pretty good beating from my active lifestyle. I do not remember having any issues with battery life or cell reception.
Perfect for seniors. Small, reliable and practically indestructible!!

Summary: This phone is perfect for seniors. It is small, thin, reliable, long battery life, the features are easy to learn and it is practically indestructible. I have owned several that I passed out to friends. If you want a simple, small, reliable phone this is the one for you.
Summary: This is a very easy to use simple messaging phone! I just love it! It's very lightweight and compact; easy to take around. The only con to this is having to type with the number keys :) Other than slowing down my texting speed, its great!
Summary: For how much these phones are going for it really makes it worth the money. I paid 9 dollars for mine and it works fantastic. They have a good over all life (and i'm pretty hard on phones) no camera on the phone but i didn't need it anyway. good buy for a quick easy phone.
Summary: This is the second Sanyo S1 that I have owned and I have to say it has been my favorite phone I have owned. I have no need for fanciness on my phone. I basically just want a tin can and a string and that is what you get with this phone. Its great. The buttons are small and take some getting use to but that is fine.
Summary: No doubt some young person will complain this phone doesn't have a MP3 player or a bad camera in it. That isn't the point of a phone in my view. I would note up front the phonescoop reviewer does not hold the phone correctly. Support the top of the phone with your index finger (like the most iPods) and you will have no trouble texting. The phone offers fine voice quality, loud volume, a speakerphone (also loud) and bluetooth.
Summary: I Love this phone..I had it originally about 5 years ago..It was time to upgrade and i have tried other phones and totally disliked them..Sprint does not make this phone anymore, Thanks goodness I foond it on Ebay ( infact I bought 2 of them off Ebay.. This phone may not have all the bells and whistles as the newer models, but it is perfect for me..
