Great phone considering its price.

  • Summary: This phone is at a good quality for its price. This is my second one of the same phone; the screen died completely leaving the phone useless. This second one is the Kin TwoM.. The "M" makes a difference in interface compared to the Kin Two. A couple of differences is that the TwoM requires a setup through kin.com(which no longer exists), causing small issues. The TwoM also does not have a calculator and a calendar.

I hate it

  • 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. the camera is good, the only problem with it is it does not auto focus well so the pictures come out blurry most of the time. The font on texting is small, so its difficult to see. Calling reception is decent. Theres no calendar or note pad.
  • Pros: camera
  • Cons: everything else

  • 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. Can't edit the icons/tiles on the home screen, but the same goes for WP7 at the moment. Nice simple to use E-mail client. Neat favorites screen, picture oriented display of you favorite contacts. Good enough capacitive touchscreen.

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. Stylish design, excellent call quality, nice capacitive touch screen, and just the most basic apps.
  • 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. The browser still works via wifi for free. The display is nice high res, better than an iPod touch and it also has multitouch and an accelerometer.

ok phone

  • 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 data, wifi works great for status updates, kids spend most of the time in school and at their house, if your like me you have wi-fi at your house and our school recently...
  • Pros: design, camera, media features, sturdy, fun
  • Cons: not very "smart", bulky, awkward camera button, bright flash
