Summary: I bought this phone primarily because I have limited use of my fingers, due to MS. Smartphone keypads are too small and too sensitive (touchscreens)for me to use easily without repeatedly attempting to push the right buttons. The speakerphone is a necessity, but it would be nice3 if it was a bit louder. Overall use is great. I would buy it again.
Summary: This phone took a lot of abuse and kept ticking. I've dropped it, stepped on it, dumped it water, you name it. Sure, it came out worse for wear every time, but it kept going, kept calling, and kept texting--which is more than I can say for Kyocera's smart phones. If you're looking for a phone that's very basic, this is your phone.
Not much of a phone unless you live under a tower that it will pick from

Summary: I bought this phone because it was the only flip phone approved by assurance wireless. The reception is pitiful and the battery goes dead very fast due to the phone searching for service all the time. The volume is very low and speaker is poor. Can barely hear it even on speaker phone. I didn't expect much for $20.00 and that is what I got. I would not recommend this phone for anyone.
Summary: This is the only kind of phone my stepfather loves to use . Its easy for him to understand and make calls as well as text . And he is just crazy about the 42 dollar plan with unlimited calling , text and a little of the web . He is not a big talker so this works for him . And he enjoys the quality of the pictures it takes . My Mom also has this phone which she really enjoys it too .
Summary: I wasnt expecting much after reading the reviews. I , like many others, am in my 60's and dont need all of the bells and whistles of the new phones. This one does not get the same range as my old Sprint phone but everything else is the same. The volume I would like isnt there. Also the clarity is poor( my hearing is excellent). But the phone and service is all I need, especially at that price.
Summary: The works but as someone that needs reading glasses the display is not user friendly. The time and date are tiny. There is no way to change the size of the characters in the display. Also, setting it to just vibrate needs to be done each time you turn it, with the button on the side. If you set it in the settings menu to vibrate only, it vibrates every time you turn it on or off, which to me is irritating. Otherwise great value.
Summary: The Kyocera phone which I recently purchased was exactly what I was looking for. The price was inexpensive and the phone is very easy to use. It is a prepaid phone and I have set up a plan to have money prepaid into it. It is primarily for emergency use even though it is also used for other calls. One thing I like about it is that the keys are large enough to use easily.
