Summary: This has been a great "home" phone for my kids. Personally, the keypad numbers are too small for me and my acrylic nails and I fumble when I text, but I'm thinking if it were my permanent phone I could get used to it. The battery life is phenomenal for our purposes. We are using Kajeet as our service provider, which utilizes Sprint's network. Since I have features limited on the phone because I do not want my kids online with it, I can't rate that part.
Reliable, tough, great feel to keyboard for those of us with big hands

Summary: Blackberry shape with cleverly designed keys that have an easy feel for a guy with big hands. Texting typo's a thing of the past for me. Had this item for a couple of months now and the phone works fine in every regard. Reception and clarity as good as I've ever had. I tend to mistreat phones and this one has held up fine. Dollar for dollar an excellent value.
Summary: Husband is loving his phone!! Good buy, great service. Husband is no longer wanting to run over his touch phone with his car and calling it every name in the book. Thank you for solving his phone problems.
Excerpt: I just got this phone yesterday august 7 2012 and before that i had a android and i love that things but i had to get a differnt phone company cause of some problems so i bought the kyocera brio and the first day i got it i hated it the keys are to small there no lock to turn off the phone.
"Good basic phone, like it a lot. Some issues though."

Pros: Sound quality good, never had a dropped call, Easy to use. Better quality basic(free)phone compared to others. Keys are small but not a problem for most people, few errors when texting or dialing phone number.
Cons: Have to hold phone very still to get clear picture. No video, only camera. Slight delay when you pull up calendar but I don't consider that a big deal.
Summary: switching from lg lotus and remarq i can not say this is a good phone the buttons tight and near to each other. some places like in call log when i want to see the exact timing it will take 5sec to open or i have to press a few other buttons it should open.
