"Good for texting, but not voice"1.5 starson by ndtovent
Pros: Pretty good battery life, at least for my phone. Sends/Receives txt msgs fast and timely.
Cons: Poor reception for voice, awkward making calls without pre-loaded contacts, delayed vm msgs, slow to power up/down, takes too long to charge, screen scratches too easily. Txt ringtone volume too low, keyboard/screen font too small/no way to enlarge
Summary: I've had the phone for 2.5 years, so I've owned it for awhile now. It's ok for brief, quick texting. I get pretty good battery life with mine, even though I've read a lot reviews to the contrary from other owners. Voice reception is below average. Texting is fast for send/receive but the keyboard/keys are too small as is the font with no way to enlarge it, and no option for switching to virtual keyboard (number pad only). The font is very difficult to see outdoors in daylight. I would not recommend this phone to anyone. I had my previous kyocera for 5 years (I forget the model name/number), and I liked it much better than this one and it was a $20 phone.
