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 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.
It's so-so: for me the volume button works too easily

Summary: First of all I'd like to point out that I am not one of the people, who handle their lives with their phones. This comment is supposed to clarify that I am not a cell phone whiz. Here is what I LOVE: The screen is crystal clear and beautiful.
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: Seemingly, Amazon has caught on to ubiquity of failures of this product, the Kyocera Rise. Amazon has suspended sales as of this date, stating: ITEM UNDER REVIEW "While this item is available from other marketplace sellers on this page, it is not currently offered by Amazon.com because customers...
Summary: I purchased this phone for my wife for Christmas to take advantage of the $50 price. I thought it was unlikely I would find a comparable phone as inexpensive and as good as this one anytime soon. I believe I was right. I really wanted to get it for myself also, but I did not have the budget for it.
Summary: I got this phone after reading the mostly positve reviews. After two weeks, I have no major complaints except for the poor network reception. Sprint (Virgin) is a poor substitute for Verizon, my previous carrier, atleast in the SF Bay Area.
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...
Keyboard function Great.... Over all phone not so great
