> In reply to Evan @ 2014-08-22 22:29 from kZMd - click to readYes you are right in your assessment. I have been reading these comments and a few others from another web page.
I am "trying" to figure out how to delete these wallpaper ID Packs that I no longer want. Is it possible? They are taking up space and my Hydro was the $85 cheapie Boost Mobile had a yr. ago.
Thank you Antoinette

I've had this phone bout a year now with not alot of problems til now. The longer you have it, the more apps you'll want but you'll run out of internal memory & not much you can do about it. Phone won't let you save new stuff to the sd card, everything set to go to internal memory. Also, how in the hell can i erase junk mail?? Says 999+ emails...I'm sure thats slowing my phone down!! I wouldn't have bought it if I knew I could download stuff to my SD card, especially since i put a 32g card in & can't save stuff on it & phone says insufficient storage. Now it's worthless, can't even upgrade apps - no phone memory left even after I moved a few apps to sd card that it would let me move which is maybe 5...big deal. I'm looking for a new phone. If you don't need much storage then it might do ok. Good luck, tho!

I'm just going to say DONT BUY THIS PHONE.This phone according to the tech specs is a mobile , waterproof, masterpiece but when i got it I had realized my mistake because the phones apps constantly crash, has a hard time just playing music (which is on the phone's SD card!) and mine as well be considered a waterproof toaster. Even with top recommended cleaning and scanning apps, it runs like a
NES , I shouldn't even compare it to that because it can't even run a simple NES emulator! The only good thing about this phone is that it's waterproof and VERY durable, I emphasise on durable because I can't tell you how many times i have thrown the phone across my bedroom in frustration of it not being able to perform the most simplistic tasks such as app selection, and the most of the time, getting reaction lag when trying to change the volume. In short this is another screwup of a phone that a potato with an 8-bit processor strapped on can compute faster and with less glitches ( exaggerating, but this is a crap mobile computer )

It's a terrible phone.There is very little space to begin with, and there are too many pre-installed programs. The phone is super, super slow and is always turning off, freezing, and closing apps. When I make calls, the person can never here me, due to the quality of the phone. Also, the camera is awful, it doesn't have any good quality. The only good thing about this phone, is it's waterproof.

I had one about two years back. Lasted 13 months great phone at $1oo back then. Upgraded to the MotoG great company Motorola only problem is. They spent more time fixing my phone than i did using it!{had a car like that once }LOL. Anyways i dropped the Moto G in the toilet that was that. So i am looking through the paper and i see the Hydro on sale for $40 at a local store. I ran there and grabbed the last one. Best damn phone for the money IMHO!

This phone is a POS. It doesn't understand English when you talk text. The keyboard is to small and punches up letters at will. I quit the talk text. It made me look like an idiot. This company should get the heck out of the cell phone business. They don't have a clue. I could go on and on, but I can sum this piece of junk up in 2 words......It sucks

The phone is awesome in longevity and for it to do whatever you can want from any android. Only drawback is its npt lighning fast. I can stream movies pn Netflix no problem so its fast enough for me........ your just a hater that probly needs a dumbphone cause a smartphone seems to be too much for you to handle.

Some people are saying that this phone is horrible, I love it. I've had it for about a year now and has completely withstood my job, being the last place you'd want to bring a phone - a waterpark. Through every drop in water, even down to 6ft, it's never stopped working. The speed isn't that great, it's still a budget phone for the most part, but I love it overall. It just depends on your expectations, whether it's going to be great or terrible.

> In reply to rick @ 2014-05-12 18:36 from jBuv - click to readI totally agree with you, this phone is my worse nightmare. I bought the phone weeks ago, the audio is terrible, the phone shot down, the keyboard is a pain, and recently showed that the SD card was removed (not idea why) and when I check the my pics and videos were deleted completely...grrrr OMG!!. When I to go the store they say, they don't know why the phone did that, when you call the insurance they send you to the manufacturer, when you call the manufacturer, they tell you have to wait until they work on some things, if not, you need to send the phone, WAIT 10 days and they will send you a refurbish phone... PLEASE PLEASE DONT BUY Kyocera phone they are PIECE OF ..... CRAp

this phone does give me a lot of problems then I gotta charge it up like 3 or 4 times a day while using it which is completely ridiculous, but one thing I can say is this thing really is waterproof and is almost bulletproof I killed a bee with mine today
