Excerpt: The Microsoft Kin TWOm is a phone I upgraded to about 5 months ago. It was featured on Verizon’s website when I looked at phones since my contract allowed me to upgrade. The first thing that caught my eye was the 8 megapixel camera, it could also take videos …
Excerpt: i got this phone and it was really good for about the first week but then it started to have problems so i took it back to the store and they sent me a back up of the same phone and that one was ok for like 2 days and then the backlight just stoed working and i couldnt read anything
Pros: camera, battery, good text imput
Cons: build quality, reception, call quality, the backlight
Excerpt: Do not get this phone, it is literally the worst phone i have ever had. the screen always froze and now the screen backlight went out so i cant see my screen at all. Now i have no phone because my mom wont pay for another and i am stuck with a phone with no screen.
Pros: Good battery life
Cons: freezes all the time, screen goes black and cant see anything
Excerpt: A friends of mine had the same exact phone for a lttle longer, and their's broke the same way mine did. First off, it kept freezing u and giving me errors. After that it kept turning itself off with a full battery.
Pros: None really
Cons: Phone sucks, mine quit working after the manufacturer's warranty ran out, Everything else
Excerpt: i have had this phone for about 4 months and its slowly breaking down. its pretty annoying how you cannot delete single messages, you have to delete the entire conversation, You cannot forward texts.
Excerpt: Great phone! Very good battery life for a touch screen phone. Zune is great! It has FM built in! I agree, texting on this phone is great! Alot like sidekicks. Very good experience. No games, no add-on apps, but all the apps it does have are very functional. No gimmicks.
Excerpt: Because it does look like a smartphone, many people expect this phone to be one. But it's not. This is a texting phone with a capable media player and some nice extras. Very good tactile 'clicky' feedback from the keyboard. Slick UI.
Not a bad feature Phone, and just the beginning for Micrsoft Phones

Excerpt: I just bought the new version of the KIN Two (called the KIN TWOm) from Verizon that is currently available with no data plan. So far I have mostly good things to say about it. I graduated to this phone from an HTC Touch Diamond. In short, I love it.
Pros: Functional for the price (w/two year plan), Stylish and sturdy design., Nice screen, Snappy OS with minor lag, Zune experience, Calendar app, WiFi, Great layout organization
Cons: Could be faster, Could have higher ppi screen, Could have a better Calendar (more detail like a weekly veiw), Could have bigger keys that are more spaced out on the keyboard, Would prefer a touch screen qwerty to a slider
Excerpt: I ordered this phone 3 days ago and when it arrived it came in this great packaging. I got it because it didn't have a data plan and i was worried that the "kin loop" stuff would effect my bill. But they took out all those stupid kin shit and put a calendar, alarm, and calc.
Excerpt: when it first came out people didn't like it because of the required data but it recently became a feature phone data-free. without the expensive data, this phone is actually great, it not really a smart fone, so it not for working moms and business people more for kids, with a kid you don't need...
Pros: design, camera, media features, sturdy, fun
Cons: not very "smart", bulky, awkward camera button, bright flash
