This is the only phone that I have ever paid for, and it is the worst phone that I've ever had. The day after the 30 day warranty I stated having problems. It stated freezing all the time, not holding a charge. It will not store any of my calls so if they don't leave a message I can't see who calls. I have had my phone for about 8 months and if you pick it up wrong the phone will just shut off, and sometimes when people call me I can't hear anything they say. They can hear me. I can't hear themDO NOT WASTE ANY MONEY ON THIS PHONE IF YOU WANT ONE YOU CAN HAVE MINEDesign 2/10Features 2/10Performance 1/10

Kind of missing my old phone!
I have had my Kyocera since Dec/08 and I am missing my old phone desperately.Design 7/10Features 4/10Performance 2/10
- The sound quality during conversations is very good. It takes reasonable pics. Light weight.
- #1 At best, I get 24 hrs of battery time. Within that period, I will have spent 5 mins talk & 5 mins text. I replaced my old phone b/c I was recharging it every 2 days, but that exceeded the battery life on my new Kyocera. #2 Scheduled events have a very short reminder alarm time. Don't leave your phone unattended if you count on it to remind you of events/appts. #3 If the phone is on vibrate, you will miss it if it is not right against your body. It's not a very assertive vibration.

It's funny. This is my first phone that I actually purchased and the first hour, I dropped it while trying to flip it open but the phone was perfectly fine. I started fiddling around with sites on the internet to download some ringtones only to find that I don't have that option to save but only playback. Thought I would purchase a USB cord for it and I've been told by 3 different "experts" that I need to go online to ebay or the Kyocera site and purchase them there!? Anyway, the camera, I thought, worked great until i decided to flip it closed while in camera mode - the external screen showed a very dark gray picture with horizontal black lines everywhere. Exiting camera mode and turning it back on in internal screen mode was the only was it worked. This phone is the dog's bullocks!Design 10/10Features 7/10Performance 7/10
- mini speaker is loud, good make on keypad for smooth gliding, battery life excellent on standby/talk time
- bad exposure with pics in the slightest dim-lit areas, bad battery life in when online with phone

good and bad
i have had this phone for close to a week now and has frozen today for the first time i had to take the battery out,i like the internet fist time with a phone that has that but again the phone would freeze and all buttons would lock for close to 2 mins,i am still learning the features,my main problem with this phone is the factory media/ringtones/wallpaper and ect. is locked and i have had to delete pics because it say's resolution to high to displayi guess do to there not being enough memory i have 5 song that i downloaded and thats all that i can store,if anybody knows how to remove the factory locked media so i can make it personalized let me know please,my friend has the same phone and he said the flip is getting loose,the battery life is good overall i give it a 6.5Design 4/10Features 5/10Performance 4/10
- loud speaker,call quality, good camara for the price, texting,really light weight,and display when the phone is closed
- the factory default ringtones/wallpaper/pics that you cant delete,cant adjust the ring volume when phone is closed and freezes/lock's sometimes when i am on the internet.

Very good phone.
I personally, love my phone. I've never had any problems with it. Never freezes, i've never had to remove the battery. The camera works amazingly, and what makes it better is that i can send the pics straight to my email. I love how it's so small, and very pocket friendly. Also, i love the different faceplates they have for it. Makes the phone so much cuter! (I'm not the one to have a plain black phone.) My phone never drops calls, and the coverage on it is pretty good. I'm also always dropping my phone, this phone is VERY durable, and can take alot. All in all, this phone is very good. And, for you text-o-holics, like myself, this phone is definitely for you!Design 10/10Features 10/10Performance 10/10
- Good coverage, good picture quality, holds a decent amount of music, bluetooth works nicely. Doesnt freeze. Good text buttons.
- None thus far.

I just got this phone and so far I love it.I am always playing with it to see what else it can do.The camera is really neat and takes way better pic the the Motorola V3 that I had before plus the camera has some really cool features,frames,crop,resize and more.As for the battery I'd have to say it last awhile,after all I am always on the phone either talking,playing or Bluetoothing.Also it has a ton of memory,95 MB or about 97,000 KB.I am so glad that I got rid of the Motorola and picked up this one!Design 10/10Features 10/10Performance 10/10
- Memory,camera,cool looking,light weight,great sound,display outside screen shows who is calling and your wallpaper,easy to use
- none so far

PHONE SUCKS. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY. BATTERY LASTS ONLY 27 MINUTES. MUST CARRY A CHARGER WITH YOU. KEYS STICK. PHONE FREEZES UP AND YOU HAVE TO REMOVE THE BATTERY TO GET IT TO WORK AGAIN. PHONE DOES NOT ALWAYS RING, SO YOU MISS CALLS CONSTANTLY. SOMETIMES WHEN PHONE RINGS, THE RING DOES NOT ALWAYS MAKE A COMPLETE RING. HABVE BEEN CALLING KYOCERA AND METRO PCS AND NO ONE WANTS TO KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT IT OR DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT. SERVICE CENTERS AND THE METRO PCS STORES I WENT TO SAID THEYALL HAD PEOPLE COME BACK WITH THE PHONE. SINCE THE STORES ARE GETTING BAD REVIEWS AND NOT CARRYING THE PHONE ANYMORE, YOU ARE STUCK PAYING A FORTUNE FOR A BATTERY FROM KYOCERA. CANNOT DOWNLOAD RINGTONES FROM INTERNET. IT WAS THE FIRST KYCORA PHONE I PURCHASED AND THE LAST. DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE OR ANY OTHER KYOCERA PHONE. FROM ALL THE STORES I HAVE BEEN TO AND THE PEOPLE I SPOKE TO ABOUT IT, THEY SAY THE SAME THING - KYOCERA PHONES SUCK. THE COPMPANY WON'T HELP YOU BECAUSE THEY HAVE ALREADY BEEN PAID FOR THE PHONES FROM METRO PCS.Design 5/10Features 5/10Sound Quality 3/10Signal Strength 2/10Value for money 1/10

I have this phone
well this phone LOOKS great, but the battery goes dead after about 4 minutes of talk time and I never was able to download ringtones from the internet. also, using the internet killed the battery and when in a public place, it was near impossible to hear the person I was on the phone with. The camera didn't take very good pictures either.Design 10/10Features 5/10Sound Quality 3/10Signal Strength 3/10Value for money 2/10
