We bought our Cherry Mobile P1 at Cherry Mobile kiosk in SM City Lipa. We chose the color pink because it’s the new addition to the Cherry Mobile P1 family. It’s not part of the original Cherry Mobile P1 phones. Actually, the box says it’s Cherry Mobile P1i model phone.
Cherry Mobile P1 looks like a calculator. It’s like a calculator with a mobile phone feature. It can receive calls. It can make calls. It can send SMS. It can receive SMS. Most of all, it has a calculator application in it.
It’s a basic call and text phone. It has a phonebook, but it relies on your SIM card’s memory to store the data. You cannot even add a ringtone. There are only 6 built-in ringtones to choose from.
Actually, we bought it because it is so small and cute. It can fit in your coin purse. It can fit inside your polo shirt’s pocket. And people will think that you only have a calculator in your pocket. You can even put it in your notebook. Or make it a bookmarker.
And lastly, it’s so damn cheap the price is not even 4 digits in pesos. It’s only Php 999.00 (~$22), open line. Just buy a 40-peso SIM card and it’s good to go.
