Great basic phone, but Sprint no longer supports it.
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.
The one big drawback, and the reason I'm even writing this review, is because I was interested in going back to a non-data plan. However Sprint no longer supports the device!
Again, if you are looking to get a basic phone there's a good chance Sprint will not be able to let you use the Sanyo S1.

Great Value for the Money!
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!

Perfect for seniors. Small, reliable and practically indestructible!!
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.

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.
The speakerphone while very loud will distort the caller when turned up above 2-3 (out of 7). Person's called complain some about the speakphone's quality.
Some people have complained that the phone only holds 200 contacts. I certainly don't know 200 people I need to call regularly.
The rings that come with it are a mix of generic midis and beeps.
The screen is perfectly fine and colorful.
Also wrong (I believe) in the phonescoop video tour is the power connector for more than charging. Modem via microUSB is possible.
To silence the phone you must repeatedly press the volume rocker until you get to silence.
You can still dial 911 if the keypad is locked. While the odds of that are low, I find it disturbing.
SAR radiation is on the high side 1.4 ish as I recall on both bands.
I got mine from RadioShack for free on a 2 year new contract. It is nice and slim in your hand, though slimness makes it harder to hold on your ear for long periods.
The black will wear well overtime, and not show scratches but the top and bottom silver plugs might.
With a Jabra BT125 headset bluetooth works fine but with some static at longer distances.
It has dropped some calls, but generally network strength and performance has been fine.
Opera Mini works 1X radio is fine.
Battery life is OK
+ Nice Simple Looks
+ Fine Screen
+ Above average speakerphone
~ could be betters:
~ Battery life (true of all phones)
~ Call clarity

A radically impressive peice of machinary!!!!
I bought this phone because my Sanyo 3200 was having some definite problems. A fried lcd screen in the front, a broken antenna, I could never keep a signal, and the speaker phone was busted. (I had this phone for three years, though.) So, as you can see from reading this, just about any phone that worked would be better than what I have. Although, the Sanyo S1 surpasses that by a long shot. When I pulled it out of the box it was shipped in I couldn't believe how small and light it was. Although the one I got came stock, the ringtones are bearable. There are times when I wouldn't hear my old cell ring, but with this phone it definately makes itself heard. My old phone had an external antenna and the signal was no good (I even bought one of those signal extenders that you stick inside your phone, DO NOT DO THAT!!!!) but with the Sanyo S1 I had great signal strength no matter where I was. The screen is bright and clear. The buttons are easily managed, I have had no problem texting at all. People in other reviews talk about how the automatic hold after a minute of no activity is annoying, but I personally think it is a great feature. With a flip phone you don't really have to worry about dialing someone's number randoming (thought with my 3200, if I sat down the wrong way it would dial the last previously dialed number) while it is in your pocket, with this one it might happen, but that is why the "hold" feature is so convenient. This feature does not affect answering incoming calls, you just answer the phone. All you have to do when you need to use the phone again is hold down the back key for five seconds and you're good to go. The Sanyo S1 is pretty basic, so if you're looking for a camera and mp3 player, this phone is not for you. But if you want something simple, yet stylish then I would suggest this phone for you.
I hope you find this review at least somewhat helpful. If you would like a demonstration of this phone, please visit this web address;
