Comments about Virgin Mobile® Kyocera Rise No-Contract Phone:

Stop working in about 6 to 8 months.
Both of my Kyosera did not last a year.
Other than that, it is a friendly usage phone.
Costumer service helped as much as they could.
I am trying another affordable brand.

Comments about Virgin Mobile® Kyocera Rise No-Contract Phone:

This is a good basic phone but remember it is a basic phone. I found that updating too many apps ate up way too much ram and caused the phone to freeze alot and even turn off on its own. Once I uninstalled the updates to hangouts, google play, and google maps the phone worked a lot smoother. I also found that using the designated messaging application is much better than installing a new one (such as hangouts). The battery life could be better but it is very nice having a physical keyboard and an android 4.0 OS.

          Comments about Virgin Mobile® Kyocera Rise No-Contract Phone:

          I paid $100 for this lousy phone a year ago. The battery lasts for two hours if you're lucky. Hardly any apps will run on it without crashing. Swype, which enables the slide-out keyboard frequently crashes, and then the on-screen keyboard fails to appear so you have to start your text from scratch. When you make a call, the keypad disappears immediately, so if you're locked into a menu, the screen goes black, and you have to enter your PIN to get back in. You can't talk on the phone in my house or in my office. So it's basically a useless $35 a month piece of fecal matter. So I'm going to bite the bullet and upgrade to the Samsung Galaxy S3. If that phone doesn't perform, either, then that'll be the last time I set foot into Radio Shack.

            Comments about Virgin Mobile® Kyocera Rise No-Contract Phone:

            Upgraded from a 3 yr old android phone, so the Rise is huge upgrade in terms of speed and aps running more smoothly. Speaker phone is not super clear and people receiving calls from us say the clarity isnt very good. Very disappointed it does not work with the Paypay credit card reader, and I will most likely be looking into leaving VM to find a company that supports that

                  Comments about Virgin Mobile® Kyocera Rise No-Contract Phone:

                  I have tried several cell phones over the last 10 yrs. This phone meets my needs in all areas much better than any phone I have ever owned even phones that cost much more than this phone. I bought it while it was on sale thinking it would make a good phone to give away as a inexpensive gift. When it was delivered I was surprised at the quality and ended up replacing my current phone. I rooted the phone in less than 10 mins which allows full control of the phone. I would give this phone a 10+ rating especially for the price.
