Summary: Needed a basic phone. This RUGGED phone was a fantastic choice. PROS Rugged, well-built. Great call quality. Easy UI. Decent speed. Relatively capable. Still being serviced by Kyocera! Has a camera. CONS Could be faster. Updates take a very long time, as they are NOT cumulative (you need ALL updates, one doesn't have all previous updates installed). Camera could be of higher quality, but the phone is old.
Summary: The Kyocera Duramax cell phone from Sprint is a basic and an excellent phone for people who are afraid of technology. The keypad has big numbers although a little hard to press, easy to find menus, easy and simply OS, and ruggedized body. I bought this cell phone as a replacement for my mother and she loves it.
Summary: The phone works as intended, the reception is great in my area, the direct connect works great, I got this phone to replace my Nextel phone with the new Sprint DC service and is a lot better then expected.
Awesome product! Great value for the asking price!

Summary: I have this phone as a personal phone, and I will admit that it's a great phone. Although it isn't a smartphone, this phone is simple to use, and can carry a Nextel Area Network almost flawlessly. It is also very durable. I would highly recommend this phone to users who LOVE the Nextel Direct Connect feature with the Sprint CDMA network. Phone calls never drop for me, and PTT feature is a great edition to this new Technology Sprint is pushing out.
