This phone will get a Rise out of you, and not in a good way

Summary: It's 2015; please don't buy this phone, guys. I've endured this phone for almost 2 years, and would not recommend anyone else suffer through the same. - It shuts off entirely if the wind blows.
Not even fit for beta testing...over 3 years since it was released

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.
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: Got this phone because it was cheap and it served its purpose but way too frustrating to not upgrade now that I have the money. I would say the most frustrating thing is when it randomly powers down and reboots.
Summary: It's a great basic smartphone. However, it has a few problematic bugs. Two or three times a week the phone will randomly reboot. Turning on the WiFi radio, either alone or by turning off airplane mode, freezes the phone about half the time.
Summary: i got this phone because it was affordable and had a slide-out keyboard, and if all you're looking for is something for phone calls and texting, this is a great phone. however if you plan to play games or run apps much at all, i would definitely recommend something a little higher up the line.
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.
