Summary: Even though this phone is older it works perfectly for my honey. He's not tech smart and does not want to trade it in. We have purchased replacements on eBay really cheap. It doesn't have a camera which is a bummer. Overall he likes it.
Summary: Haven't yet activated it and changed my current account over to it (I bought it as a backup to my current phone, same model), but it arrived from overseas fully charged and it appears all functions work. For a simple phone for occasional use, this is perfect. With Virgin Mobile's automatic top-up plan, it costs me five dollars ($5) a month.
Summary: This is a good little general purpose flip phone that is getting hard to find. When the current one breaks, it's nice to have a spare ready. Broken ones are not worth trying to fix. These two were either "like new" or "re-conditioned". One of them looks a little beat up, but they both work O.K. It's probably the best general purpose phone that Kyocera made.
Happiness is a Virgin Mobile Kyocera MARBL Cell Phone

Summary: After 5 years of use my old phone died, so I have bought new phones (2) to replace it. Since I wanted to keep the same number and account, I had Virgin Mobile switch the number to the new phone I am using now. It is an excellent and cheap plan and the phone is easy to use. I did not want to change to a more expensive plan or go through the effort of learning a new phone.
Summary: I was replacing a Marbl I already had which had gotten damaged, so I was very happy to find another one to replace it at such an excellent price. I like the phone, which is quite basic but gets the job done. It is lightweight and reliable. I also love Virgin Mobile - you can't beat the price and customer service. It arrived in good time too.
Summary: This phone did not come with a battery, therefore it is worthless to me. i could have found a charger for it but batteries are not even worth buying when you can buy a new phone. i wasted my money on this phone.
Good phone for an older adult and a good value for the money.

Summary: This is a great phone for an older adult (Myself). It is easy to use and set up the contacts list. I can hear good over it and calling is easy. I don't text, but it is capable. The battery life is very good. Overall it has been an great purchase. Virgin Mobile's pay as you go without a contract works great for me as I am not a constant user.
