Summary: Products is great starter phone to be used with mvno companies like ting etc. The phone works well for its price. It is a modest smartphone that can run a few low resource apps for productivity.
Summary: I ordered this for my dad since he damaged his previous one (same phone). Works perfectly, the only thing is it does not come with a memory card so you'll need to get one of those for saving photos etc. In my dads case he just transferred the memory card from his damaged Kyocera, to the new one. Other than that, it shipped quickly and works great.
Avoid sprint at all costs, If you cant this phone is 100% worthless to contract customers so keep looking for a cheap phone

Summary: Was actually impressed with it as a cheap beater phone, has nice weight, slide works well. The phone has some issues with screen resolution with newer apps designed for much larger screens. Only issue i had is it was 100% worthless to me as a sprint contract customer. Despite it being no where in the description, This shows up as a PRE-PAID phone with sprint, and they will not activate any prepaid phone for contract use, or any other phone not sold by sprint themselves.
Summary: I ordered this phone for two reason, to stream Pandora at work and to use Google maps when traveling and it works great for those things. And that's about it. I turn e Wi-Fi off when I leave home but the phone switches it back on when it detects available networks and then it gives me the "connection error" message every time I want to use an app, so I have to go into the settings and turn the Wi-Fi back off again.
Summary: I do like the phone, I picked it due to the slide out. I'm not a big 'smart phone' person and I use the phone very little. But it is there if I need it. It takes pretty decent pictures as well. As with anything, I wish the batteries didn't run down so fast.
