Works with Ting, has keyboard, but camera and call quality leave much to be desired
14 September 2014
Summary: Looking for a phone, with a keyboard, to use on Ting. This works, and is okay, but the sound quality on the HTC Evo Shift is far, far superior. However, we did keep this one for the kids to have as a backup phone when they go out (yes we are the horrible parents who don't let our 15 and 12 year olds...
Summary: The headline says it all. I did (and still want to) love this phone. Before it fell apart beyond repair and began to no longer function, it was a great phone. The great slide-out keyboard was almost worth all the headache because I can't (with a capital C) get the hang of on-screen keyboards.
Keyboard function Great.... Over all phone not so great

Summary: It is a decent phone for the price. it was a replacement for a older phone m wife had. she loved it at first but now constant has to restart her phone. .. I hear her say how much she hates this phone almost daily. but she deals with it.
Summary: This phone is ok for texting and browsing the web, but you'll have a hard time with playing apps on it. The Kyocera Rise has VERY little ram. I'm finding myself constantly force closing apps just to keep the phone from freezing up on me (which it has done many times already) other than the RAM issue...
good little phone for the cheap price. so you get what you pay for

Summary: the phone like the seller said was new and i recieved it fast that i do like. the phone is slightly better then my other vm phone since it has more internal memory smaller design slightly larger screen the camera has flash and its running android 4.0.
Excerpt: The phone would be wonderful if you could actually use it regularly. Bad reception causes many problems and often it is just unusable. I have had the phone for six months and while it is very durable, I often find that I can not use it in my home unless it is up against a window.
Summary: After having replaced the Kyrocera Rise phone with a Samsung Galaxy Reverb and trying another phone ( LG smartphone ) my daughter owns, and using the same network, I find my complaints seem to be much more with a weak signal than anything else. I have a home business office in my basement.
Summary: I purchased a Kyocera Rise after I lost my phone. This was my only option with Virgin Mobile that I saw because I like a QWERTY keyboard. This item was purchased in a box store and I was glad that I did. I had to return the phone several times before I got it to work now (I think).
Summary: There are some issues that many of you are having with your phones. I figured out ways to cirumvent most of these problems. 1. Poor battery life: When the phone first gets activated/boots up, a diolouge pops up, informing you about the Connections Optimizer Service.
