Excerpt: This thing is so bad, I will never buy another Kyocera product again. I'm pretty sure it wasn't even designed by engineers, I think they deployed the thousand monkeys locked in a room technique on this one.
Summary: I bought this phone back in May it was my first smart phone or so I thought. What it really is a smart MP3 player. As a phone it is the worse, it takes 3 tries to dial out, most times the screen would go black after dialling the number so you don't know if the call is going through or not.
Excerpt: Screen shuts off even after setting it to go off after more then a minute. If you are on hold or check your bank account , etc. by pushing different buttons you have to continuiosly slide the keyboard open to get it back!

Summary: I've had this phone for two months now, and really tried to work with it. To learn it, you know? Okay, I'm done now. If I sound redundant, it's because I can't believe the phone finds new ways, daily, to let me down. Lessee, I'll try to be positive. Um, it ALWAYS boots up. And...
Summary: I wrote a review for this phone on November 2012. I DO NOT recommend this phone to anyone. Yes I previously did recommend it but after but TWO Kyocera Rise Phones because they would crash I'm not thrilled with this product.
