This phone is terrible. The WORST phone I have ever had...This is my 3rd Kyocera Rise....they ALL start freezing and restarting, and havea major delay with EVERYTHING...all within the first month....So now mybbelief is this phone was made solely to be a rip off
This phone is garbage. After a few months it just crashes all the time. A lot of the time it just freezes and restarts itself. Don't buy this piece of crap.
This is the best android phone i have had and i also had issues with my first one crashing or should i say it just stopped working but i bought the warranty with walmart and they are great even though calling virgin mobile i didnt have to use the walmart warranty because it is still under warranty with virgin mobile and in 2 days i had a brand new phone with no issues except for playing the castleville legends which takes up a lot of space on any phone, other wise it is great. The only thing i keep doing is hitting the volume button so it turns the ringer off easily which sometimes isn't a bad thing lol but i recommend this phone to anyone and i paid 39.99 on sale at walmart.... it was the best choice i made
the batterylife sucks i thing i overcharged my bat it on last like 5 hours fully charged the hingers pop and it comes apart other then that its fine
This is a great phone but some times it hangs due to excessive use of applications may be due to RAM 512 MB which is less,it should be increased, else it got no problem.
Battery has to be changes after every year or so.
I dropped it several time on roads and used it in snow and rain it works great.
Anonymous, 22 Aug 2013It doesn't work properly in Ontario. Poor reception ++My phone never had any issues in Ontario! It is an excellent cheap device - my respect to Kyosera!
Hi, I bought this phone when it first came out. Over a year later I can't fine any thing wrong with it. I have never had any problems works great in the cold and the heat, can't count how many time I've drop it...I just love it
My daughter had this phone for almost a year before I inherited it from her. It does what it is supposed to do, has held up well under a teenager's abuse, and is working great for me. You can buy this phone for 29.99 now at Target, for Virgin Mobile. It's MUCH better than the previous phone I had. There are phones on the market that are much more expensive and do less than this one does. I definitely recommend it! BTW... if you purchase a phone at Best Buy, and say it costs 100 bucks, you can purchase a warranty for 10 bucks that covers any kind of damage, even water damage.
My daughter had a LG OPtimus Prime before this one, and she had to have it replaced twice during the year. The 2dn time they gave her this phone instead, and I am sure she didn't treat it any better, but it held up for almost a year before she gave it to me. Not bad.
I've used this phone for 5 months and can't say I've had any issues with it.
This Phone Is Stupid I dropped it and it stopped working the front didnt even crack it just stop working
This phone sucks. Battery sucks. Connection sucks everywhere. Screws fell out, now just duct taped it together. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!!!!
Anonymous, 19 Oct 2013I was using it one day and all of a sudden it shut down. I thought the battery was dead so I c... morewell that only happens when your running ti many apps or trying to do to many things at once
i have had the phone for a year now and the only thing i found wrong with during that year was it could be a bit fast for what it is and just yesterday the phones screws came out (for the key board )and then i was walking and pull my phone out of my pocket and tried to unlock the phone and nothing happen so i said might be dead tried turning the phone on and nothing happened so i said i was dead went home put it on the charger not even the red LED light turned on so the screen gave out just as well as the keyboard screw my rating on the phone is a really poor rating hope none of this happens again
I was using it one day and all of a sudden it shut down. I thought the battery was dead so I charged it. However, that did nothing for the phone. I read that the battery life was terrible on these phones so I bought a new one to see if that would help but it did nothing. I'm not sure why, but my phone won't go past the virgin mobile home screen. Very frustrating to say the least!
I bought my phone a few months ago and have no complains at all. It is an excellent inexpensive phone with a pretty good, convenient keyboard - never had any problems with this phone. The quality is overall very good. I would suggest this phone to anyone who wants to save a lot of money. Instead of buying expensive smartphones, look at this simple and reliable device. The poor reception is not up to this phone, but rather some dead zones where the signal is not strong enough..
Had it for a few days now, no issues at all, got it for 59.00 at target, it does a lot more than I expected for that little money. Hope it stays the same for a while, it is worth a good try for that kind of money.
terry, 06 May 2013hey do u know if this phone can wrk in GuyanaIt doesn't work properly in Ontario. Poor reception ++
I've had this phone for a month. Big mistake. The battery life is unbelievably short... In a weak signal area, the battery is dead in about 4-5 hours. I even bought a stand-alone charger and a spare battery, which turns out to be necessary for any serious use of this phone. My advice? Consider another pone.
