Summary: NO frills! In fact, my Kin might have been defective or glichy, although it came from ebay in the box. It is a windows prototype phone. It would not view you tube or DL ANY apps, that's right: zero apps. However, it has 8 megapixel camera and video too! It even does email with free wi fi (where avail)! what more could you ask for? FM radio? and it's NOt an app! It was such a great little device toy until it ended up submerged in water...... aw.....
Inexpensive but not durable. Meets my needs better than same price LG

Summary: this is my third Kin two, I get about a year out of one of these and then they have a complete breakdown. I'm used to the operating procedures of this model and it is worth about $30 each year to replace when it stops working. Does not require paying monthly data charges that I won't use.
Summary: Our 14 year old has this phone. It has WIFI but does not require a data package. It's REALLY hard to find a phone that does that. She loves this phone. Great camera. I like the slide out keyboard. Easy to use. Could not get contacts to bluetooth over from her old phone so we had to enter them manually - thus the 4 star rating on features. This is her 2nd one, she broke the first by accident (it slid out the car window leaving softball practice and hit asphalt).
Summary: The sharp kin two is a good cell phone it was a reasonable product. I like it because it is a step up from a " regular" flip phone. What I dislike about it is I've had this phone previously before I bought it again due to water damages and now in order to connect to it you have to have data. But when I had the kin 2 before it was never an issue to use Ito connect to kin or use the wifi browser now I can't.
Summary: The only phone that I have found that dose not require a data plan. The only thing I dislike about this product is that they quit making it. There is no comparison of this product for what I use it for and the data plan I don't have to purchase.
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. Too bad MS/Verizon doesn't support this phone properly. Open up the zune apps on this phone, it would be amazing.
