Pros Nice exterior and interior, lots of options, easy to use
Cons Not much selection of ringtones, screensaves and wallpapers, menus a little confusing
Summary I have a Virgin Mobile account and I used to use the Kyocera K9, until I bought this phone because of the price. I can easily can it is better than the Kyocera K9. It has a color screen, nice interior and exterior and it's easy to set up and activate. The price on this phone is great too ($29.99). Overall, if you are a beginner on a tight budget that dosen't want to pay $260 for Virgin's other flip phones, this is the phone for you.
Pros Very affordable, nice looking, great voice quality.
Cons Very few features...
Summary A good cell phone for someone that wants to use it just to make or receive calls...
"Phone stinks"on by dnbarish
Pros Nothing good about this phone
Cons Broke in 3 months
Summary This phone didn't even last 3 months.
Neither Kyocera nor Virgin Mobile would
listen to reason. Screen broke from the
inside (phone was not dropped). I'm giving
up my Virgin Mobile service. This was the
2nd Kyocera phone to break on me in 7 months.
Pros Easy to use, good display
Cons Unacceptable battery life, no support from Kyocera
Summary Have had 3 of these phones now, all three had the same problem: 36 hour standby battery life (vs the 8 days claimed). Kyocera was unwilling to help at all, though they did acknowledge there was a problem. Virgin Mobile, after about 3 hours of "let me talk to your supervisor", eventually swapped us a Vox 8610, a better phone overall and with near-advertised battery life.
"Worst Phone Ever."on by mikey_g
Pros deals well with a weak signal
Cons extremely unreliable, poor battery life, small screen, bad ui, no data cable support...
Summary This is the worst phone ever, mine broke completely after just three months of infrequent use. I should have seen it coming, I had to exchange it three times initially before I got one that worked. From the very beginning I got about 16 hours of standby time tops. If I let the battery go too low, when I would make a call the lights would all start flickering and the call would get cut off. Finally the phone stopped finding any signal anywhere, and the battery life dropped to about 30 minutes standby time. Don't buy this phone. It's a defective design, which should be recalled.
