Phonesat.org thanks users:

Since the successful deployment of our three PhoneSats on Sunday, we have already received over 200 packets from Amateur Radio operators around the world! We are sincerely grateful for all of your support and would like to thank you for your key contributions in making this technology demonstration a success. The received packets are being processed right now and will be published soon. Please keep sending packets so we can follow the status of the satellites for the complete duration of the technology demonstration.

NASA says that these are the cheapest satellites sent ever into the space and costs approx $3500 to 7000 only. They are working fine and transmitting the data to mission control at Ames Research Centre in Moffett Field, California and also to amateur ground stations ...
