Dumbest phone ever,what was Sagem thinking while creating this monster,it's an absolutely useless phone.No downloads,np good ringtones,damn.
I sell mobile phones. I know this phone is rubbish. It is not easy to use and the large screen is misleading as the font is small in comparsion to the screen. If someone puts their sim card into this phone its copies all its no's to the memory and you cannot delete all. You can only delete them one by one takes forever. Simply is Nokia.
Just got a VS1 for myself (I'm 42) and a VS2 for my son (he's 15). He wanted one I wouldn't put thru the washing machine and he thought the VS2 looked cool because it looked like his PSP (he loves that none of his friends have worked out how to use it too). I wanted one to replace my old brick that I couldn't get rid of because the others were too small for my fingers and the writing was always too small to read. This phone is great with the main features on the outside but with modern features which weren't on my brick like polyphonic (and LOUD) ringtones, predictive text etc. Love the flashing message thing! If I could say an improvement it would be could they make one with easier to read letters on the keypad (for even older people) and adjustable size of font on the display pad. Good thinking Sagem and Vodafone!
I think Vodafone are just getting better by the second. Why would anyone want to use any other network instead of Vodafone? They're the world's largest mobile community... support it!
Yes it will take non-Vodafone SIM cards, but the handset may be "soft-locked" in some countries (which means it is locked to the VF network, however it's free to have the handset unlocked - you just need to send a request through to VF customer care in your country)
I'm an oldie and would love to see this VS2 (seen only a VS1 locally). Would it take non-Vodafone SIM cards?
After checking the Vodafone website VS stands for 'Vodafone Simply'
Do you think there will be data cabling options for this phone for contact sync?
quick quiestion does VS mean Vodafone/Sagem hmmmmmm intresting just wondering
is this one lighter then the vs1 cause the vs1 was heaps heavy (well the dummy was anyways)
I've yet to see the VS2, but I hope the interface has been improved from the VS1. Also I hope the design has been updated. I was helping someone to set up his VS1 and it took me half an hour to find out why the thing wasn't displaying his number on the home screen. During that half hour, the weight and awkwardness of the keys convinced me that this was causing an onset of RSI. It hurt.
I'm not holding out much hope though, it looks like sagem have shedded 15 grams and squared off the phone and given it a black paint job. Which looks better at least.
I think this concept is BRILLIANT!!!
Vodafone Simply breaks out of the competetive marketing and provides what it says it should:
Calling + SMS
The service, the idea, the implementation... it's bringing back the initial idea behind having a mobile phone. Re-wind!
I would NEVER buy one LOL, but I know EXACTLY who would!!!
Vodafone is innovative and top-notch in their marketing, well done!
this vs2 is specially designed for the oldies and those that just want a "FONE"., just to keep in touch with kids, why do you need anythig else,unless you are an alien!
well actually.. it does.
"Vodafone Simply" I think. Can read up on it on Vodafone UK site.
Could those out there who feel inclined to bag this phone for lack of features crawl back under your rock in silence!
The whole idea of this phone is to have the bare minimum features so the old and feeble can use it without confusion. Big keys, big writing, and nothing fancy. I won't be getting one but it's a brilliant idea!
I sell phones and waste heaps of time instructing old people (my parents too) how to use their phones.
I just luv vs2 phone for his portability and nice looking, very attractive, but lack the facilities
