ShadowWolf, 26 May 2015The Kyocera is not the best phone by far, but it is an ok one though. Well, for as cheep as it... moreNote that when you move an app to the SD Card, it will not show up on the home screen after you power down and restart. This is because Android boots the fie manager and icons BEFORE it mounts the SD Card. In other words, the phone doesn't see the apps on the SD Card until it has already loaded the icons on the home screen. This is an issue with Android -- NOT your phone.
I'm using the hydro phone which sim card is not inserted in Ghana,how do I use it?
Punkycat, 15 Nov 2015Well everyone is right, it's a piece of crap! I'm glad i got it free of if be REALLY upset! I ... moreI'm having the same issue with the storage, anyone ever get back to you on that?
kriss smallfry, 23 Nov 2015You'll find your SIM under your battery in the back of your phone. NO! It is NOT there! It has a 2 GB. micro. memory card installed in the upper left corner but nothing else under the battery.
I've had this phone for more than a year now and it's been ran over in the lake about 3 times, and left at the lake and some random person got it back to me. It works fine and I'm not having any problems.
This phone is junk!! I started having problems the day I received mine, it won't charge , it shuts off and freezes constantly.. I called to get it replaced and Q Link refuses to replace it unless I pay $25.. NOT. Plus the same day I got it all these sex sites were down loaded into the phone & I can not delete them. I caled the same day and they still wouldn't replace it!! My 13yr old daughter uses that phone and pornographic pics keep piping up.. not happy
Well everyone is right, it's a piece of crap! I'm glad i got it free of if be REALLY upset! I had trouble with it 2 days after i got it regarding the storage. I don't understand, it's suppose to have 7 or 8 gb internal memory/storage, with 4gb supposedly for the user. Well total amount when you check inside the phone says 3.88 and all the phone company bs is used on that. SO WHAT HAPPENED TO THE OTHER 4GB???
It won't let you put hardly anything on the sd card and the things i was able to move disappeared off the home screen everytime the phone restarted! Now it's doing somemore weird stuff, when i unlock screen instead of home page coming up, the recent call menu comes up. Now i can't rotate my screen, the button is grayed out on the home screen pull down menu and the on/off option in the display setting somehow mysteriously disappeared!!!
I don't understand because before i got this one (free) and only because i wanted a bigger screen, is using the Hydro Icon, i loved that phone, it's great! But this one doesn't hold a candle to it! I don't know if part of the problem is in the service provider or what. I'm using metro pcs, with the Icon was using Boost Mobile. Well either way when my payment is due again I'm switching back to the other phone and back to Boost!!!
My phone got broke so I thought I could take the SIM card out an put in another boost phone he'll I can't find where the SIM card is suppose to go anyone know where it us I have a hydro edge c5170
2 + 2 = 4 ALL DAY EVERYDAY
I keep reading what a POS this phone is quickly followed by a statement about paying $9.99 out the door. Yall do know that a new Samsung S6Edge has a retail value of $649 right? You carry around a computer in your pocket that cost you less than $10 and you think it should last a year???? At $650 over 24 months my phone costs me roughly $27 a month before the price of a the plan. That's EACH month. All phones are way overpriced and you can thank your cell phone providers for that. Paying just a bit more for a phone would get you a much nicer device and be sure to protect the phone. If you don't have a case on your smartphone or you have a bedazzled hello kitty plastic piece of crap pretending to be a case on your phone you've got no one to blame but yourself.
"Why don't my Kia ride like a Benz, I paid $12,500 for this damn thing?"
prince, 21 Oct 2014i have the kyecera c5170 phone dualcom but i cant locate the simcard slot how can i see the si... moreIts under the battery.take bbattery out and be easy opening little door.card slides into door,then close little door.if not careful u can pull whole door off.it goes back on.has 2 little stubs,one in each corner.they go inside holes.hope this helps
This phone was good the first month. Now All I get are the little black pop ups that google not responding, voice mail not responding, maps not responding, and so on. I have to click out of about 20 of them before I can use anything on the phone. Maps will just start then tell me not responding. It takes me over five minutes just to make a call. I can never click out of the black boxes fast enough to answer a call. Most of the time the screen will not come on. I will have to take the battery out to get it to work again. DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE. IT IS GARBAGE.

6. You've now moved the application to or from the memory card.
Note: Some applications may not work as expected after you've movedthem to the memory card. Not all applications can be moved tothe memory card.
This is the best waterproof, durable phone I've ever owned..It's been run over by a 4x4..Dropped several times, taken pictures under water, been in the River, and the ocean..I have had it since it came out..The screen has never "spider webbed"..I factory reset it, and it works like new...Maybe I got the best one they made..A+...
Evan, 22 Aug 2014Some people are saying that this phone is horrible, I love it. I've had it for about a year no... moreYes 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!
