Comments about Boost Mobile™ Kyocera Hydro No-Contract Phone:

As a web browser and email etc.... it is excellent. As a phone it stinks. Do NOT get it if you need to use it primarily as a phone, but for web uses it's great to have in your pocket. Waterproof is the reason I bought it almost 2 years ago, but will probably upgrade to another phone as more waterproof models come out.

          Comments about Boost Mobile™ Kyocera Hydro No-Contract Phone:

          I've had this phone a year. It just keeps getting worse. It freezes. It goes back to the previous screen in the middle of a text or email. It mutes in the middle of a call if you touch it to your face.And now the battery dies by lunchtime.

            Comments about Boost Mobile™ Kyocera Hydro No-Contract Phone:

            This phone may look nice and have good features as described on the website, but it doesn't work at all. The battery life is really poor and only lasts for about 2 hours. Calls drop out, the keyboard freezes, keys don't work and people get the voice mail, due to poor Boost Signals.

            DO YOUR SELF A FAVOR AND STAY AWAY FROM THIS BOOST MOBILE
